It's not a coversion set, but a parts set that give you some more suspension options.

Is this for the old or the new suspension?

Unhappy Oh dear.....

Well, what a dissapointing day.....

Went off to Broxtowe today for an indoor meeting, run 27t stock on carpet. All I can really say is, car was great... when it wasn't broken. I broke more parts on the car today than I have in total since owning it. slightly ridiculous. Ended up with 3 broken rear wishbones... and no more spares. Even managed to destroy one BEFORE the begining of a heat, but that was just unlucky... i doubt any car could have survived have a wheel traped inside a drain pipe whilst exiting a sweeper... and then in the next heat being t-boned by X-ray at the end of the straight (even whilst trying to keep out the way) killed another....
Admitadly the third one was my fault, whacked the wall hard in practise, so ended up in about ten minutes swapping the whole rear end from lwt suspension to the old style (only just made it, just putting body clips on with 30secs to the start), only problem was that left the car with too much rear toe, so having gotten away well from pole in the "cough" D-final ( ) i promptly understeered off in the middle of the lap and ended up last. stil brought the car back to second, by just an overall frustrating day....

Here's hoping i've got rid of all of my bad luck before next weekend, the second round the Brit indoor winter series (and hope my spares arrive before then). Just one of thoose days I guess....suppose some positive could be taken that the guy Q'd 2nd tried the car in practise (before i pranged it) and said it handled really well... so well in fact he was questioning his car at the start of his final... hehehe. Oh and the super wrenching in changing the suspension, drew some suprised glances when I put the car down.

(excuse the rambling, I needed to vent a little )

I have been thinking about trying those as well. With a 108 spur, what size pinions should I order for running mostly 6-8 turn motors?

I think it's for the new suspension as the set is for the MS.

Has anyone used aluminum shock caps? The plastic part of the cap broke today and was thinking about aluminum. Pros/cons?

Also, I see 53525 Titanium turnbuckles. Are these available in Tamiya Blue? part number?

It's not that great anyway, way too many restrictions. There is a minimum of Y10,000 which is about $98, tack on the minimum shipping of Y1,500 not a good deal. If they have some items out of stock and your order falls below the limit, no discount.

And oh, just my .02 or 2 Yens
