Would love to see pics of it as well. Please keep us up to date.

Thanks.

Also has anyone thought of converting the current car to a link car? The key is the position of the lipo cell in relation to the rear axel. This would define how much space you would have to fit the swivel link to the existing hole.

I dont know of anything thats availible other than the setup sheets you have. This site will provide you with some solid starting info.

The section that deals with damper tubes applies to the lower shock.

Each has their +'s and -", imo its more of a feel thing. I've tried some link cars and just never could get comfortable with them, I started with t-bars and those just feel right for me.

Until you get a replacement slider, you can just put longer 3mm set screws through the aluminum slider and use those to set the T bar tweak. I sometimes do not use my blades. As for the shock shaft, not much you can do there except get another.
Tweeking with just the slider and no blades works great. It does give the feel of a stiffer T-bar but no ill handling effect. Try it

Alright i got a couple of Nub questions for everyone.
My servo is no perfectly straight with the center line of the car, no matter how I try to mount it. (its a JR servo)
Does it matter which side the servo lays, on the right or the left side
I plan to run it here locally in Socal at west coast rc does anyone have set-up for that track to share

If you are using a JR 3550/3650, it should fit perfectly with the servo output shaft dead middle of the chassis. The kit comes with four servo mounts. You have to use a combination of the four to mount different sized servos. I use the JR 3550/3650 and the output shaft is right on the center line of the chassis. To get it centered, you do have to mount the servo biased towards the right side of the car.
