No, the bones and axles are different.
Thank you very much for your help. Do you have any experience with the kit of two idlers from Robinson?

Are people running 30/29 ride height like the kit setup says. Running on a pretty smooth indoor clay track.

I run 30.5 in the front and 29 in the rear.

I just bought a bought a used 22t from here and want to put the new bellcranks on it. I noticed in the 2.0 product page that the 22t has special spindles. How much different are they from the ones you get from the retrofit kit?

I believe they are required to get full steering throw with TLR's bellcranks.

Tires are bigger on a truck, and thus, the chassis is further off the ground. It is still below "bones level" which is what we always used to set the ride height at.

The kit comes with a 4mm off-set spindle, the 22T uses a 2mm spindle. I believe instructions were to NOT use the 4mm off-set spindles and continue to use the old 2mm spindles.

If I am wrong someone please correct me.

Isn't the difference in the spindles an additional mounting point for the ballstud?

All the 2.0's have two mounting points, the 1.0's only have one.

But the truck uses the 2mm vs. the 4mm.

[QUOTE=hacker07;14005294]Yes, for modified, I run both idlers as aluminum.

so its not happen stance that I trashed the stock idlers already with a 7.5. I replaced them with plastic again. After seeing this I asked the LHS to order up aluminum

I raced my rear motor truck with the 2.5 degree rear toe block and the truck performed better. More corner rotation with less push. Originally I was running 3.5 degrees of rear toe and it planted the rear end a little too firmly in the tighter corners. So this may be a tuning option for other rear motor drivers.

It's been awhile since I ran ST but for some reason I thought my old Kyosho RT5 liked around 28/27 or so.

And maybe you did, but the 30-31 range in the front and 28-29mm in the rear is normal for the XXX, 22, T4, and T5 ST's. I think that 28/27 is the non-normal height from my experience.

Hey Frank (or any other Team drivers, really) how big of an impact does ride height really have on vehicle performance? I've been racing for nearly 15 years now but have never used ride height as a tuning aid, I've just set it and left it there and periodically check it. I remember reading the tuning tips for my old XXX buggy and reading the line:
Code:
We have found that ride height is really a minor adjustment. This should be one of the last adjustments after everything else has been dialed in (tuned).
But it seems as though it should have a bigger impact than a "minor adjustment" since it should alter CG, roll center and shock travel. Am I missing a huge tuning adjustment by forever holding onto a 15-year old instruction manual?
