The plastic ones must be just as good as the aluminum, because I dont see Paul Lemieux, Drew Ellis, Ralph Burch, etc etc running the aluminum, just stock plastics.

hey stay with the original shocks in the kit they work great! just build them the way the instructions say and they work great. it's kind of like putting ford tranny in a Chevy .just use the factory OEM part they spend many hours of rd work on them .and lets face it hudy is a pretty good designer of cars!!!!!

I am noticing that when I hook up my servo horn to the steering assembly, there is a large vertical angle in the turnbuckle. Is this ok or will it affect steering throw in either direction? I ideally want it to be horizontal and parallel with the chassis. I can do this by putting some shims on the steering assembly. Is this going cause any drawbacks by increasing the height of the turnbuckle on the steering assembly?

I am using the stock futaba servo arm with a Futaba BL451 servo.

Your question is somewhat confusing. Any chance you could post some pics so we can better understand your problem?

It just dawned on me are you talking about the turnbuckle that goes from the servo arm to the servo saver system?

Yes That is what I am speaking of. The turnbuckle is not parallel with the chassis. The side that connects to the servo arm is higher than the side that connects to the servo saver system. Is this ok or will it cause problems? I can put spacers in the servo saver system assembly to lift the turnbuckle up but not sure if this is recommended and/or necessary.

No its not necesarry, as it was designed to be at an angle like that.

Dude, you still don't believe me? Come over to the house and I'll show you both the T2 and '007 so you can see the difference...

The car is fantastic... perhaps the best TC on the current market. Parts are more expensive than most other kits, but the car is really durable, so you will be breaking less of them.

I get what your saying. I just didn't like the way the Xray shocks built and the Tamiya ones are so smooth and a simple build and to get rebound and length precise between shocks. If I ever get to the point I am trying to match someones setup I've got the Xray composite shocks on hand. I may go back to the Xray ones for weight savings at some point with the newer TC ROAR weight limit. The composite shocks are considerably lighter
