Default fk05 conversion

Hey I was wondering howmany fk05 drivers would like to buy new bulk heads and motor mount that lower the top deck around 10 milimeters and the lay shaft 1 milimeter and use the new t2 a arms. The only mod you would have to do is make a small cut for the motor to not hit the topdeck chop the servo saver and chop the chasis posts down to size. I am not sure how much this people would pay for this so tell me then I will base a price.

Brandan-

I like your thinking. But, you would not have to use T2 arms. The FK05 geometry is still really good. And not to mention the parts are tougher and stronger and bigger. They don't break as often. There was never a national shortage of streering knuckles for the 04 and 05. Any how I am gonna look into this with my cars. Maybe get a local machineist with a mill to look into it. Maybe set it so that the T2 or 04 streeing rack work. will just have to worry about the belt travel from the center pulley to the front pulley.

Am looking at my car now and there is one problem, the front pulley will hit the chassis. You could go down about 2mm on the bulkheads and the same 2mm on the top of the motor mount and still clear. if you cut a slot in the chassis for the pully you could go a little bit lower. Definintly would not get the 10mm you are thinking about. And because of where the belt runs without redesigning the bulkhead completly you can't just lower the top deck.

Done a little more investigation Brandan. You could go lower if you use FK04 front bulkheads. The Top Deck mount on the 04 are already lower than the 05 and from there you would have to get the rear bulkhead to match in the heights. I guess at that point you would probably have differant lower roll center locations from front to rear depending on how you mill the bulkheads down. More investigations to come.

Anders, my idea is to change the arms to the t2 arms (keep the chubs and other hubs) and move the topdeck down to the lay shaft holders and have a threaded post in place of the screw. After thinking the lay shaft shoulnt be moved down because that could cause a problem of the spur gear hitting the ground if over the stock 116 tooth. the other half of my thinking is that if the top deck is moved down then it will make a better car. I will try to get some cad drawings of these once thay are done.
