Team Prime shock is a good upgrade also if you are not running one

Damper tubes, ball ends for the damper tubes as well. If you are not running a servo that has the vertical "ears" (the type that mounts direct to chassis such as Airtronics 94761) you probably want to order our servo posts, part no: RR12-18.

The team prime shock is a great upgrade over the AE Unit as Madulla stated.

The hubs on the AE, may make the car a bit wide, depending on the Rear diff and wheel you may be using. You should be able to get the car down to about 170-171 I believe. With the IRS diff, which I think has a 2mm lesser offset we can get down to 167 or so.

I ran my T2 at the Texas EOS rd 3 outfitted with an aluminum chassis and it was fantastic. As a matter if fact, all I changed was tire compounds (I ran S blue Rear magenta F from Jft), raised the ride height to 4.8mm all around and increased pod droop to 2mm from my carpet set up and the car was on point. Ended up with TQ and win to cap off a perfect EOS season with the overall title.

Things you will need:
1) Center shock; prime or for $10 less a silva shock
2) Damper tube assembly and (4) ball ends

Things you may need:
1) RSD servo mounts.

Things you will want:
1) RSD linear side springs and mounts
2) Xray side links and pivot balls

I do think they cost that much. Those tiny parts are not cheap to machine.


You can buy these for dbl that...

The xray posts will work, but you have to cut them or sand them slightly.

If You knew how much they actually cost you'd actually think we're not charging that much for them. Like Brian stated above, small parts in small batches made from 7075-T6 alloy are expensive.

We don't make a lot of money on these kits. It's more of a labor of love.

Airtronics 94761 if I am not wrong. We all run that servo for its price point and size. I guess with Airtronics being gone, we will be switching to the Sanwa equivalent. It's a bit pricier, but the small servos just fit so much better and reduce the weight a good 7-10g most of the time.

Thanks Cristian, the weight was one of my reasons for asking. I recently replaced most of the screws with aluminium ones and shaved 14 grams off, I'm now under weight with a CRC lightweight body but still over with a regular weight body. Looking at ways to get down to weight while using a Strakka and have been thinking about replacing my 9650.
