I was wondering if anybody has tried putting front arms, hub carriers and spindles from a 3.0 on there 2.0. I believe the 3.0 has 15 degrees of caster instead of the 20 degrees on the 2.0. Seems like it would be alot cheaper option than getting the aluminum inclined blocks if it works.

If you read the 3.0 thread, you see you have to basically swap everything from the towers on out not just the arms/carriers spindles... there are a couple of posts in there entailing all the part numbers needed to swap over to 3.0 suspension.

Has anybody converted their 2.0 to a 3.0? I was looking through the parts list and its seems like it would be cheaper than buying a 3.0.

The Gens Ace 4S is a pretty tall lipo. Have you tried laying it down on its side?

After I rebuilt them and broke them in I can't believe how different they feel. They are very smooth and you can actually feel a difference between the front diff with 5k and the rear with 2k. I'm looking forward to getting it to the track and to see what kind of difference this makes. The diffs were so bad I am planning on getting a shock rebuild kit next! Anybody else have this experience?
Yes I had same issue with my buggy all diffs were hard and notchy I rebuilt them and left the small metal washer off that goes above the orange o ring in diff, saw this on you tube Adam drake rebuilds diffs watch the video. They all were nice and smooth after that and no leaks, before the diffs leaked because they were not closing all the way!

I left the shims in. Maybe next time I will build them without them. Does everybody leave those shims out?
