If converting to the dual pad (personally to me I think 3 pad slipper as the manual shows 2 pads but I know folks call that a single setup), what are the part numbers we need exactly other than another pad (different spring, etc)

I am going for the gear diff, upper and lower aluminum front arm mounts, Techra bulkhead mounts, electronics weight and front sway bar. The buggy set will provide the hardware, but I 've got an old 1.4 sway bar and some 1.5 wire waiting just in case. Maybe I'll also add a thinner rear one, Shin used 1.4/1.2 at the EOS.
I' ll start with 37.5/32.5 wt and the kit springs, but I guess I'll end up with either Racing Performer purple/black or black/orange. Our track favors carpet-like set-ups.

Objective met! It is ten minutes to midnight and I have completed the rolling chassis. What can I say, perfect built! Plastics seem to have improved once again since my YZ-2 CA, QC was also spot on. Tomorrow it is time for the rx and esc, and on Saturday we'll have a club race.

As per manual, the truck uses the shorter arm, which I think has been updated. I am using a short Exotek TLR 22 series arm. You've got to recut the thread to accept the metric ballstud or could use the metric AE version.
By the way, the Techra bulkhead mounts are currently out of stock with the manufacturer. Tonisport is trying to persuade them to do another production run, knock on wood!

Same feel as Racing Performer black, but longer.
