I'm going to be picking up a used T1 to race outdoors this summer and I was wanting to know what extra parts I should get for it. I have a full extra set of PB parts from my EVO2 FOC, but I didn't know what else to get for a T1. So far I'm going to get a belt tensioner and a roll bridge. Anything else? Also what springs do you guys normally use? I was thinking about getting a set, but I already have some white and light blues. I don't want to waste money on springs I won't use.
Also does anyone have a good parking lot set up for a T1 they would want to share? Thanks...

wannabee-I am running a 120 spur on carpet with 2.30" to 2.20" tires and the belts are hitting the motor can with 32 to 34 size pinions. So with bigger rubber tires, I am assuming it would be even worse. I am going to a 128 spur from Kimbrough for next race to drop the motor more and avoind the drag on the belts.

1st thing I did when I designed the bumpers was to add 10mm to each side of it, thus extending the protection. 2nd is the foam they are made out of is of higher density (harder) than the stock in returns is ALOT more rigid. Now when you wack a corner the foam will not compress allowing the the corner to come into contact with the tire/arms etc...I have alot of people running them and some team drivers and they all swear by them...

Here is a pic...

Thanks,
Kevin
