I was just told that LXT dogbones will work. Now that's going back aways! I'll check it out tomorrow and report back.

Anyone have anymore info on the dogbones for converting to the GenII tranny? I read the other posts on the LXT axles, but want to confirm this. I've priced out the parts listed in R/C car for the conversion of the BK2, and it doesnt appear to be that much to turn the MF1 into a MF2.

A-2933 Diff screw $4.50
A-2935 Outdrives $13.95
A-2937 idler gear $2.50
A-2938 Tranny case $6.00
A-2940 Tran screws $2.50
A-2941 Mtr plate $10.00
A-2943 Gear cover $3.00
A-3070 D-ring $2.00
A-3074 Diff gear $2.00
A-4123 Motor guard $5.50
A-9833 Tran plate $6.50
A-9932 Top Sft $11.95

The thrust bearing assembly is the same. This doesnt include the so called "new" suspension arms with extra mounting holes for altering the width of the truck. I fugure the new arms will probably fit the MF1 and actually become the new "standard" replacements anyway. Replace em as you break them and it will be a MF2 before you know it!

Default Gen 2 tranny/XXXt ..dogbones?

MIP no longer produces/stocks the LXT bones and I haven't been able to confirm that they work anyway. What does work is the T3 dogbones! The catch is that the round inner portion that slides into the outdrives is smaller diameter than the Losi bones. WHat we've done is to put a small MIP o-ring around each side of the pin that goes into the slot in the outdrive, then slide it into the outdrive. Works like a charm in the driveway, haven't hit the track yet.

If you use the new lowerplate with this setup you must use all the parts that come with the Gen 2 buggy from axle to axle, including the spacers and the hub carriers to get the the rear of the truck back to full width. Of course, you use the XXXT arms, not the buggy's.

I'll post some pics later tonight.

Maybe losi will be wise and release a total upgrade kit for its loyal followers. I'm sure if enough of us ask losi they will deliver. My truck is far from beat, and its not cost effective for me to try to sell it (MF's arent getting much these days on ebay). Associated did this with the b2/b3 kits, lets just hope!

You'r probably right, they'd rather you spend $250 for a new kit. I guess I'll wait till I start losing races to MF2's or even T4 FT's by then. It will be a hard choice at that time, I'm a huge AE fan as well

Default DOn't use the BK2 cvds

They won't work in this conversion. You can use the T3 dogbones with the BK2 outdrives and spacers.
