I am running a tensioner so its all good, i cut once every 3 teeth, skip2, cut, skip2,cut. it is a much safer method than every other. I did hit a strand on the first one but nothing that a little kevlar putty wont fix lol.

the track is mid size, has a short straight and a couple of technical portions, i tried running a 93 and 24 combo with the MVP, roughly 7.05 final drive and the other guys were blowing by me, when i ran the 90 and 29 combo, the motor didnt seem to heat up and seemed like i was lacking in speed on the straight somehow.

but then again, i'll give your suggested gear ratios a try tom. also, when i ran the 93 and 24 combo i managed only 17 laps, whereas with the 90 and 29 i was able to get 19 laps and make it to the a-main.

Hi guys! Got some q's about the short arms, I've installed it on my EVOll FOC last night, I noticed that the servo is extending out of the chassis now by 10mm (approx.). Is it supposed to be like this? I'm using a KO PROPO PDS 2143 servo if that helps.. Thanks in advance!

rcprix, you are probably using the wrong holes. You should be able to find another set closer to the center. My servo hangs out about 5mm.

thanks Headbanger! I already found the culprit, the hole that i'm using at the moment is the right one, i guess i'm using the wrong suspension holder on the right rear.. which brings me to my next q, other than using #302040, are there other ways to get this fixed? thanks!

True, You could be okay as long as the travel is not binding and you get the full range right and left. On my setup, I have 2mm shims between the servo tabs and the mounting posts to free up the movement and move the servo inward.

Hey guys, a few FT questions. I just sold my Evo 2 and placed my order for FT kit. I'm definatly going to need a front ball diff since the FT kit doesn't come with one and I'm trying to figure out which one I need.

305002 - Ball Diff. With Labyrinth Dust Covers - Factory kit

or 305001 Ball Diff Spring Steel Set

Which is better? According to the X-Shop information 5001 comes with carbide diff balls, new axial ball bearings with larger balls. The facotry team diff comes with all the same stuff right? The FT diff is cheaper as well, but I just wanna make sure I order the best parts....

The spring steel diff is a little on the heavy side.

It looks like 305002 (FK) will has the lightened outdrives and will match the rear one. The other is made with the spring steel and is more stronger and heavier than the FK one.

Thats what I was thinking, thanks. Does the 305002 include the carbide diff balls and thrust bearings? I want to copy the rear diff exactly to make this car smooth as butter. Considering how good my Evo 2 was with just the normal diffs, I have a feeling that its going to make me happy.

Any other parts I should pick up while I'm ordering things? I hope Ashford has the diffs in stock, but if they don't I'm going to be ordering direct from serpent and with their outragous shipping fees I wanna make sure I cover everything! I just sold a Evo2 with short arm conversion so I think I have most of the spares covered, but is there anything odd I should pick up?

Is that a one-off chassis from BMI?
