do you need different hingepins and servo posts for the short arms conversion aswell as the swaybar?

Hi, I've changed to short arm version. Here are the list that I've to add in to install the short arm:
1. Lower suspension holder (#302040) x 1
2. Alu Nut (#302032) x 2

I replaced the front wishbone pivot pin bottom with a new pair of Rear Wishbone pivot pin bottom (#307310). Please see if this help or not.

About the servo post, really depends on the size of servo you are using. This is how I installed my servo. I'm using KO servo.

If anyone here is going to the Nurnberg show, please take lots of photos of what will be in the Xray booth.

There are no short wishbones in the UK, I'm not impressed...

The best way to get them to fit is to run the original T1 chassis, as this puts the servo more to the rear of the car.

Would like to ask all of you how to do the droop measure in T1 EVO2? Thanks!

Guys - My T1R is coming along slowly, and I have a question about batteries. I just got 2 pcks of Fukayama cells, and built one pack last night. How is everyone doing their connections? I have extra deans bars to bend over the last cell, but the brace doesn't allow for that to work. Am I better to run deans plugs or corally style posts? Anyone with pictures of their batteries installed?

Thanks

I use the corally style plugs. Work perfect on the XRay

bend it closer to the end so the solder tab is smaller and it stands up taller. Or bend it at a 45* angle.

I've been measuring my droop by letting the car rest at right height and then pulling up on the rear tower while holding the tires down. I usually have 1.5mm roughly I think. I'd have to check to be sure. It is the difference between ride height and the height you can pull the car up too. You could also use a associated gauge or hudy, but I've found that it doesn't work too good when running foams because of the tire wear.

I run JACO 28mm tires front and rear and the rear wheels hit the shock bottoms unless you grind them.

yup - what he said. I run from 1.2 to 1.5 rear droop. Be carefull doing this - that difference is about a 1/8 turn on the droop screw.
