But looks really good, I wouldn't mind trying the Aluminum chassis even tho I'm not a big fan of them.

Good work Quinny!

So is the LS1 a direct fit? no mods needed?

What does the LS1 do differently/better to a normal steering set up?

direct fit ! the only problem the steering bridge need some modification ( grinding or sanding ) to fit again under the topdeck and the ackerman is a bit different because the distance between the 2 balls on the rack is very different you need reduce the leight of the steering rods alot if you don't want 5 deg of toe in !!

Default Looking for a kit

I am looking to purchase a conversion kit, but it looks like rcmart is out of stock...

Does anyone know of any other sites that sell these kits?

Or does anyone have an extra and or used kit they would like to sell?

What is different with the rear shock tower in the Spice conversion?

Is it possible to run the optional Yokomo short shocks with this kit using the Yokomo rear shock tower?

Sorry, I meant the front shock tower.

Is it possible to make the yokomo front tower work to run the short shocks?
