TKG 27: Yes, front axle, rear axle and rear bone are the same so for a perfect fit you should have these parts:

front: MR4TC front axle + rear bone
rear: MR4TC rear axle + rear bone

The main problem I would guess is to find any shop that has these parts. I have not found a shop that has the aluminium MIP's in stock but maybe someone do have the shiny MIP's...

Never tried front bones on the SD so cannot answer that.

Yes that is the correct part number.I just did the conversion friday night for the same reasons.

With all respect, this is totally false.

Torque on the wheels only depends on the overall ratio and NOTHING else, maybe it changes the efficiency, but I'm sure the difference won't be noticeable.

hope they release more info on the car. b day coming up for me :-D
Yokomo is the inporter of AE like AE is with LRP and that is all...

Got back from the Toys for Tots race just a little while ago. Ran Pro Stock, qualified 4'th, by the end of the first lap I had the lead and kept it the whole way. That'll propably be my last race in stock, mod is just a lot more fun.

That should be a good length, as long as it'll be enough to give you as much droop as you want.

Hello,

I did the 2 save-servo modification; before, it was largely more on the left side than on the right side, now, there's the same (little) amount of slop on both side.
My car is much more precise on the corner + straight line and when the car is "trimmed", there no need to touch it again...
Thank you vtl1180ny

But I had my share of bad luck this week-end
As Paul "Lonestar", I broke my first rear arm (after 7 seconds on the 1st qualification...), but that was on a crash that was really bad
On the 2nd qualifs, I lost one king pin in the middle of the session, but was able to finish and not bad. Not the 1st time I lost one, so I decided to glue it No more problem...
3rd qualif, I lost one front body clip, so every 4-5 lap, the body was going out (I used little clip and should have used bigger clip...)

So 7th on B final, I managed, 4th, 3rd and 6th, finally 14th overall, not bad considering my 1st on modified class.
Next time, I should spend a little more on preparation, because not having one good run during qualification is not a way to go

Regarding 2.5 internal ratio - what does it do

Hahaha, how right you are ;o)

To get this into perspective, dropping the pinion by 1 or 2 teeth on a standard 2.353 will have exactly the same effect on overall gearing as going to all the trouble and converting to a 2.5 internal ratio would. It does seem a little pointless.

Perhaps if you race low wind mod classes on very tight circuits where you need to run 1:8 - 1:9 overall ratios and you don't own any pinions smaller than 21teeth, perhaps then it might seem like a good idea. But then you could just buy some smaller pinions instead

One other point - the geezer going on about better torque and lower motor temps seemed pretty keen to sell 2.5 conversions

Nuff said.

Regarding what leochan said:

What he said wasn't false as such, but it was rather mis-leading. If all other factors on the car remained unchanged and for any given pinion/spur combination, the 2.5 internal ratio would give higher torque at the wheels and a likelyhood of cooler motor temps - due purely to the lower overall ratio.

The thing is though, just as you have correctly pointed out, the overall ratio is what governs torque, accleration and topspeed and most of us just change the pinion/spur to achieve what we need. I cant see why or how the efficiency would change unless the gears used in the conversion are more/less precisely produced.

I put it facing up, just so no air bubbles can get trapped underneath it.
