Hmmm....I can't speak for all but mine was good. It was sent before the worlds but it was good. I know of a couple locals who purchased one recently without issue.

How far off?

I may have found a shop who is selling some upgrade kits for $380 for the 2.0

personally I would just get the kit but some people want that and feel it's cheaper option for them. I guess it could be.

it was a mm or so.....take a loook at your tray and see how Close the servo sits to the dirt guard....its close if anything....and mine wouldn't fit worth a bean...basically the tray rocked back and forth on that one point and i could get in either 1 top screw or 1 bottom...but then it would throw out the other holes.....and i traced it back to the Dirt guard....shaved it slightly and everything fit.......maby its the servo ?

did you use the 2mm servo spacers that come with the kit they are supplied for that exact reason, well they come with the 1.0 kit don't know about the 2.0 raceroller.

part no

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/7733 there are 4 of them in this pic

there is a table on page 23 of the 2.0 manual that tells you what servo (5 main brands) require them

hope that helps Adrian

No radio tray fitment issues here; running Futaba servos.

So far my issues have been: Diff fluids swapped f/r relationship (no biggie); BUT the major issue thus far is....NO CLUTCH NUT PACK...so no clutch nut; collet, bearings or shims.

can the 8-1 armsbe used on the 8-2.
I know that the rear outer hinge pin holes need to be drilled out, but I can't find what the difference was between the old and new front arms.

So what is the difference between the old and new arms?

2.0 book does state "no shim". I'm running Futaba 9450's with NO shim and no problem.

I will likely take the Dremel and lay the edge back so it doesn't go over and start banging the servo case
