I ran a complete 8t 2.0 on a FT 1.0 chassis at hobby hut.It had much better of power steering and quicker steering response.Rear was slightly looser. all else seemed equal,even its ability to track strait and soak up the ruts and bumps.

i like, the sound of it that it would handle the ruts and bumps better i dont know if i whould like quicker steering response though because i tried to mount my bump steer up and it was very touchy.

i can handle a loose rear end somewhat i like off power steering better than on power a little bit.

I DID NOT say it handled ruts and bumps better?? Here's some friendly advice.
Quit screwing with junk or trying to be a cobbler. Save your Penny's and when you can get a 8t 2.0. Its the easiest to drive and one setup works at almost every track. With very small tweaks you can get it to handle to your needs.Small changes to droop/brake bias/front toe/ride height and maybe a shock position move is all it would ever need along with the proper tire selection. That way you can focus on becoming a better driver and enjoy yourself more.Best of luck!

For what you would spend on converting it. You can find some nice used rollers on here and ebay. If the price is right you could put a few bucks into it.And have a real race roller.

sorry, man i bought my 1.0 t used from a racer and it was in terrible shape and i knew the guy so its new for me now on.

plus, i like to have a new roller were i dont have to have upgrades for it right away like the rc8t champ ed.

it already has all the upgrades with it.

but like i was saying i could just get 2.0 t suspension parts little by little.
