The SS shock bodies are longer than the SSS shock bodies. There is a picture of a comparison a few pages back on the thread. I don't think you need them to run the conversion. Just run the long shock ends with them. Yes, there are two different types of sway bars for the front. You can use the old Special sway bar on the car on the top. Not sure what the difference is, I have a set but never put it on. Masami uses the upper one instead of the lower one.

Yeah it mounts on the car the same way. I'll be out there on the 12th again. Been running the conversion since the first carpet race. Been messing with shock setups though. I've got the same setup as Matt except I'm running the RS #1 pistons.

Default One last question.

Can you use the middle brace/spine on the rayspeed conversion?

No, It eliminates the center backbone piece. I'm in the process of making top decks right now that are solid to get rid of the flex that will help with the small flex issue for carpet.

Now, where's my credit card.....

Buddha,

I'm back online. Do get the SD but don't waste money on any hop ups or conversions just yet. Something is up in the air but I'm not in the positon to speak. I'll let you know the next time I see you. It would make the SD bullet proof from what I was told.

Default Antenna mounting?

To all the RS kit owners: Where do you mount your antenna?
Obviously Mr.Adachi forgot to drill a hole in the upper deck...

Thanks,
ingo

utieh: I am a little bit afraid of drilling a hole in the upper deck. That will make it flex even more. Let see if there is hole in the lower deck thatīll fit.

MattH: Did you use the lower or the upper hole of the C-hub resp. the rear hub. And where did you place the shim( between steering block and c-hub)?

What springs are the most common using the RS on carpet. What springs do you recommend for asphalt?

Thanks,
ingo
