Most Lax players are soccer wimps - can't hit to save their lives. Kind of fun to clean someones clock once in a while.
Yes! As you all can probably tell from my siggy, I am also a lacrosse player, I play attack, I'm the one who hits goalies in kneecaps and such My shot is about 75... I'm working on it... If I don't go to the away game saturday, I think I'll come.

Actually it is not new, you can run it with long arms, just put the shims between the bulkhead and hingepin mount in the rear of the front arm to give you some arm sweep.

Putting together my T1R kit and no problems till I get to the steering rack

Which servo saver do I use for a JR servo? It says to use either 30 2580 or 30 2582 but the savers only have an "F" and a "K" on them?


Thanks guys car is looking awesome so far.

You use the one that fits your servo.

Default Factory Question

I just bought the factory kit. I have not received it yet but I have a question:
I believe that the Pivot Balls allow quicker and easier changes in camber and car width. Do you think that using pivot ball supspension on the Factory will eliminate the good handling characteristics mentioned earlier?
Thanks a lot

Alex

Factory Kit doesn't come with Pivot balls. And the new FK bulkheads don't have the pivot ball mount points on them anyway so you can't retro fit.

What wrxmy99 is trying to say is get the previous T1 model.
T1 EVO 2 Freedom of Choice.
It comes with both suspension. So you could change to whatever suspension you deem fit.
But since you have ordered it already, test it out.
The T1FK is one hell of a car out of the box.
