It does not appear that they will. The bulkheads on the 2019 have new part numbers.

I guess the new clamps are bigger to accommodate the plastic insert so the new motor mount must have bigger cut off for mount the clamps, it is just my guess

Can anyone confirm if the new rear spring plate (with incorporated battery holder/o-ring "tabs") will fit a '17/'18 chassis? I would love to convert to it.

Ok, I donít think this changes on the Ď19 model. (And I may have asked this in one of the other x12 threads but donít remember.) Was the same on Ď17 and Ď18. Why is part 373120 used here...why such wide bore spacers/shims on the rear of the front bulkheads?

The original lower suspension arm had material there that the shim would go around, obviously that was removed years ago as you pointed out. The point of it now is to hit more surface on the reactive castor block (372021). I personally do not use these shims though. Xray used to make some shims for the old T2/T3/early T4 suspension that I prefer.

XRA303134-K - ALU shim for lower susp. holder 3x7.5x1.5 Black (10)

You could probably also use these shims in order to have some adjustability:

XRA372291 - ALU shim 3.1x8x0.5 (4)

Ah, ok...thatís right, and you may have answered this for me previously on one of the other threads. So really lots of possible solutions here. I just remembered the part during the preseason rebuild and saw how awkward they are compared to the rest of the precision parts.

No, both kits come with the ball diff. The gear diff is a separate option.

Hey Robbie, are you still flipping the front arm mounts for spec class black carpet? Also, have you tried the shorter wheel base on the rear pod yet? I am wondering if it is worth it to convert my 18.

Iíve seen the flipped arms. What is the purpose? What parts needed?

Reduced camber gain and a different roll center. it raises the inner hinge pin a bit, and you can further increase the height by adding spacers under the aluminum caster block mount once its positioned on top of the arm. This is beneficial in really high bite conditions and smooths the car out a bit.
