What parts does one need to convert a T1R to short arms? Is it as simple as replacing the arms and putting the mounts outside of the bulkhead? Thanks.
anyone

forty6.. i don t think you need any special part to fit the new short arm...except the short arm itself.

pace72 I am pretty sure you can use the droop screws in the rear.I don't really see why not, it's the same car but not graphite.

yes you can but you have to modify the T1R chassis for the rear arms. You have to dremel away some of the lip of the tub chassis in the rear for the arms to sit properly. Nothing too tough but this has to be done

After owning 3 xrays over the past few years, i think it is a complete joke that Xray did not include the Front spring steel hubs in the FT kit, the stock alloy ones start to bend in the first few weeks of running, and can damage both the bearing and the plastic part eventually.

I have seen some closeups of the new car and it looks very nice with all the refinements present, but a major let down IMO is the lack of SS Hubs.

Just be careful when you dremel away material that you alter the tweak of the car.

Asside the short arms, you'll need to cut the aluminum suspension pin holder part in half. Both front and rear. Or you need to get the all plastic ones from the T1R. or you need to order the smaller, aluminum nut inserts from the Evo kit.

Default Pitures of Setups on Electronics

I need to see some pictures of other peoples setups on the electronics. I need to figure a nice and neat way to put all those wires around in my car. What i am saying is where the reciever,esc,servo wires go. In my T1R i have had it running for a bit now, but i still think there is a better way to put all those wires. If you know what i am talking about could you please show me some easy pictures of where to put these wires.

Thank you

Jon
