Ohh yea nitro fuel too hehehe I have been known to forget to fill my tank before the warmup before the race, the car flames out and my pit guy and I are sitting there scratching out heads saying WTF>>>>> no gas in the tank hehehe.

metal throttle carb link
aluminum rear diff holders
servos
shock ends
hardware (odd sized 5-40 screws can be a pain to find).

(rtr comes with plastic caps, not aluminum, but i found no fault in them)

What is the metal carb link? Also what does the servo saver do? I have an aluminum servo arm.

the shock kit is a lil tough of a find b/c it had some 1.0 parts in it (notably the shock ends). give those to a 1.0 racer and get some 2.0 shock ends for ur kit. then ur set.

the metal carb link for the losi 350 is a must over that plastic junk piece they give u. i'm hearing some of the new fresh examples of the 2.0 RTR have them on already. idk for certain. dynamite (thus horizon) sells a replacement part for bout 6bux that fixes that issue forever if u have a plastic piece. i forget the p# or i'd tell u. its in the 'losi 350 engine who makes it' thread.

i think the servo saver thing is the use of a truggy or 1.0 spring to improve the system as a whole. i also believe that new kits have this running fix on them. not sure what could tell you if u have the running changes on yours or not b/c there are a few.

What is the difference in the shock ends? When I bought my shock rebuild kit I was told that they were updated kits with the 2.0 parts included, like the white shock seals. Did the 1.0 have white seals?

I had some 2.0 shockends before I got the shock rebuild kit, and I just combinded them into the shock kit with the shockends the kit came with. Now they look all the same. I hope they are.

I checked my carb and the ball assembly is metal. I just bought mine a few weeks ago.

What is the deal with using the 1.0 servo saver spring? I have noticed the turning the wheels by hand is a little harder than on my 1.0 truggy.

I use a dynamite aluminum throttle arm, I love it. Run it on both my truggy and my buggy

ok, good sounds like they fixed that issue. granted that plastic piece looks an awful lot like metal. but still great to hear. can prolly confirm it with a magnet.
