Why not just lay the new upper deck with the EVO2 on top of the Old Stiff Upper Deck from the T1 and drill out the notch?

That is exactly how to do it, I already have taken the above steps neccessary to both my rigid and ultra flex top decks. I basicly lined up the screw holes, clamped everything in place and used the original EVO top deck as a jig. Take your dremel and a 1/8 grinding stone to it.

Has anyone played around with the track width adjustments Front/Rear. If so what were your ressults and how did you make your measurements, was it wheels on or off.

So who's tried a solid front axle?? I just finished making one for mmy car. I won't be able to try it though for a few weeks. When I do, I'll give some feedback.

I think RCCadet has. I remember reading that it is really good.

How did you make it? Did you just crank down on the ball diff or did you drill it out and put a screw in to lock it?

hmmm....looks like no read my post (except Hobbytown Racer!). The steering post hole is located differently between the Evo 2 and orginal upper deck. Dremelling the notches will do nothing if you do not change the plastic bearing holder too!

yes please tell us how you made it. i made one for my tc3 but have not yet tried it, but as soon as i get my evo2 running well i would like to try a locked front diff on carpet. for the tc3 i used steel out drives without the thrust bearing and no balls with just rings and spaced the nut retainer out with some metal spacers and cranked it down the screw.this is what has worked for others in their tc3's. so maybe similair when building a locked front diff for the xray?

Mike Webb, all I did was take out the diff balls and filled the holes with epoxy. I know it will render it useless for a regular diff but I have 2 of the spring steel diffs already so I was willing to do it that way. Plus it was alot easier to just fill it with epoxy rather then go chase some pins that I didn't have here at home.

A picture tells a thousand words!

Looks like the holes are different size too......you would "have" to use the old plastic insert with the old upper deck!

There's a groove on the outside of the outdrive that I think is were everyone else is drilling. If do right, you can end up with a good ball diff or locked diff. by installing or removing the pins. The dust covers hold the pins in place.

Did Team X-ray ever release that single-belt conversion? That on the new X-ray might be the ticket.
