It is a good idea to glue the battery slots, but have to use very, very little glue otherwise the glue will just hold the cells up again.

Has anyone tried a solid front axle in the front of the car yet on carpet? Curious as to how it worked.

HTR: 72mm, that is 4 longer that the T1 front and 5 shorter than rear. 68/77 for the T1. I have my fronts at 70 as I run foams on the C-Hub setup.

T1 owners: The ultra tune rear tower works with C-Hub as the shock location on the arms are further out. With pillow ball however, it does not work. Also only the lower holes work as the serpent shock cap hits on the middle and upper set. I went back to pillow ball in the rear and had to reinstall original rear shock tower due to shocks hitting tower.

nitro, the evo2 shocks are different from the T1 shocks. They made them the same front and rear. That's why your getting the different lengths. The overall length really isn't important since the car has droop screws.

The "swisscheese" tower as I call it does work on the T1, you have to space the shock out from the tower for it to work. It comes with the evo2 and to use it properly it will need to spaced. The evo2 comes with 3mm lock nuts to space the shock out so the tower doesn't hit the top of the shock. The front evo2 tower is taller then the T1 too. To use the T1 tower with the evo2 shocks you would have to use the lower aluminum shock retainer cups as the springs for the evo2 are all the same length too. Make sense???

HTR: Yes it does, thanks. I will look for a 3mm spacer as I would prefer to run the rear tower. With small foams I need the clearance. I had to lenghten the front shocks 2mm so they would work with the new tower, comes with the C-Hub conversion. Mario posted that there is a new foam tire tower for the c-hub coming. I also run the rear springs in the front. Waiting for that new tower for the front.

What I'm going to do is, run the T1 towers with the evo2 shocks. To do this I'll have to use the aluminum spring retainers. I'm not sure I'm sold on the c-hub kit yet. I'll get the car as close as possible on carpet with the pivot ball set-up and then maybe try the c-hub kit. At last years roadcourse challenge I was only 3-4 tenths a lap off the TQ pace with the pivotball T1 car. Made the a-main and finished 4th overall. If the c-hub kit will give me those few tenths, I may have to get it.

The C-Hub gives you more steering. I have some of this dialed out, use -15% on my controller in the steering. I get 21 degrees on the setup board in this configuration vs the 18 I had stock. Total throw C-Hub is 32 degrees! I took the C-Hub off the rear as I had to much steering and did not like it. Prefer the pillow ball rear to C-Hub. The fast guys still have 30 - 45 sec on me. But going back to the X-Ray I was able to drop 2 min total.

John, so your taking out steering by using negitive expo?

I like to use zero steering expo and use the dual rate to take out steering. The more you have to turn the wheels the more speed you'll scrub in the turns. Right now with the pivot ball I'm at 80% dualrate. I'd like to get it down to 65-70% before I buy the c-hub kit. If that's possible!!! I think the ideal set-up would be to have the back of the car so it rotates faster but doesn't break loose. There's a line between the front and the back and as the car gets closer and closer, that line gets thinner and thinner. LOL That's when it gets even harder to find those few 10ths on the track.
