Is there a conversion kit to install the new front suspension on a 10L2?

i would start with the thinnest lube. i think that is the white cap. this will make the car iniate a rolla little quicker because ther will be less resistance for the begging stages of chasis roll. i would start with the next softer spring after white, and go from there. it all depends on the traction and track surface condition.

Buy it now. Most likely, the new front brace will be an option and the front end will stay the same. The front arms become alot more durable when running the graphite spacer instead of the stock red aluminum spacers. They also allow you to run smaller tires and adjust ride height with the plastic shims used on most other 1/12 cars. I don't know if the new bulkhead will be included in future kits, but it's only $18 and you'll have a spare motor side bulkhead. It's a great car. Do yourself a favor and stop waiting.

Can someone hold an IRS motor pod plate and a CRC motor pod plate next to each other and tell me how far off the bottom screw holes are?

Hope I will be able to say that soon . My 3.2R is tweaked out so bad that one of the wheels is off the ground.

Just got my updated pod plate. Nice improvement. Seems like the IRS ride adapter was a tighter fit too.
