Matt have you tried the new Yoke alum. pivot blocks. I jusat put mine on and they are really nice. Now my a arms have no forward or backward slop with the standard spacers, no extras needed to take up slop. Also in the front my steering rack don't rub anymore like it did witht he stock plastic mounts on. I had to dremel my stock front pivot block. The weight is not really that much more and now I have added strength. That leaves a arms and hinge pins to break during bad wrecks so that is cool to.

wyd- I don't have them yet, I view them as a want compared to a need. I saw them on Mo's car and they do look really nice.

Not sure if there's a difference or not, I've never ran it with the spacers. I race on carpet, so I figured that not having the spacers installed would make the chassis have less flex and also give the car less weight to haul around.

Hey Steve I ordered my Rayspeed setup today.

Matt Howard do you need to file out the battery slots on the Rayspeed chassis like the Yoke? The yoke one takes a good amount of filing for the batteries to fit in good. I wasn't going to order the Rayspeed and then Speedtech posted that he had the new conversion set in so I bit the bullet and bought the conversion. Just need to buy some more long ball ends for my shocks.

Thanks Mo. I did on my SG but it looks like the new Rayspeed will take less filing to make the batteries fit good.

I just want the shock towers...

I was racing on the street with my son (no body or bumper), he hit me head on and snapped one shock tower (had a spare), cracked the diff case and looks like the diff is now out of wack too... Glued up the case, but it's going to have to be replaced... This is what I get for runnning him without a body...

Steve... When do you expect the Rayspeed towers back in? Tobee shaft? Excell diffs??? I need to make an order but want to do it all at once...

On a good note, the car was launching perfectly straight since I solved the tweak problem, though it may be retweaked... I'll check later...

Yeah, when are you getting the Tobee Craft main shafts back in stock!! I just ordered parts too from ya... SD and F201 stuff. Not to mention the batteries...

I have a quick question, but I forgot... hmmmmm Oh yeah, for anyone with the RaySpeed Conversion... do any of you know if the Servosaver arms are plastic or graphite? I broke mine during practice on carpet over the weekend. And I had to order some new ones so I can run my RS steering setup again. Right now I'm using the stock steering setup on the RS Chassis. But just wondering what they were made of. I know the hacking on the arms makes them weaker. It snapped right where the ball stud was. Hmmm just has me worried. It was the only spare part that I didn't have for the car at the race.

Well let me head out. Maybe I'll post some pics of the sloppy car.. hehe.

Here is the pic. Sorry if it's too big. I didn't want to shrink it down too small.

Do you have to drill new body holes(rear?) when using the RS chassis?
