the Aluminum C-hubs is a worth while investement... I've taken alot of hard hits...and never had a problem with them bending. Gives me peace of mind... I know that nothing will go wrong...and will finish the race.

T1 is still a great car... easily converted to Evo2.

Scrad,

When I had composit C-hubs I too also broke the C-hub portion and never the knuckle. I got fed up of breaking those along with bending 22 dollar dog bones so I ponied up for the alum c-hub in front. Never had a bent or broken part since they went on. It's a justification well spent unless you want to continue to break it and end the race early...which i dont think you want to. You won't need the alum knuckle, just the C-hub portion. Hope this helps.

John

imho-the T1 chassis is far superior to the evo2 chassis for racing on carpet w/ foam tires. Consider yourself lucky to find a brand new t1 chassis!! If you keep it mint and dont warp-it-I am sure you'll have no problems selling it later.

No carpet in my town but i'll be using it on asphault... the hobby shop i go to still has two T1s but they want 300 for them. I'm buying this one out of the classifieds. Can't wait to put it together, i love shiny new toys.

Every town I seem to live in has nothing cool like carpet tracks or anything of interest. I'm trying to scheme up a way to open a track but being poor it's not going to be easy.

Oh I live in central VA near charlottesville. I go to linville hobbies (www.linvillehobbies.com) where they have a nice outdoor course. I wish i lived in manassas or virginia beach as that seems where all the action is. Maryland is right above me, about a hour drive i think.

Hey guy,

Thanx for all your set up info. Had a great weekend at the Washington "Slug Fest". Qualified 3rd in the 'A' . Had some issues with some other cars and ended up in 5th place. Had a blast

Scrad- I had the same problem (I spent 200.00 for the car T1R ) and I wasn't going to spend 1/4 of the price on just C-hubs I've not had problems since I stocked up on C-hubs, Ironic huh.

Well I went a whole season and never broke anything on the car, but the last two race days I've broken 3 hubs, all the right side. I'd rather break the c hub over the arm, its really easy to change if it does break.
