SO-start with Josh's ROAR nats set-up as it is easy to drive. Maye just run them with 3mm rear uptravel instead of Josh's 1.5mm rear uptravel at first.

Cool, I printed out JC's nats setup last night with a few others but I wasn't sure it would be easy to drive for a newbie. Thanks for the info Ray.

Default cutting belt teath/pully teeth

Hi
Thinking of getting a T1 Factory Kit, currently have a TA04S
What is the reason for cutting teeth off the belt or pully as discussed on this thread a few pages back?

To free up the drivetrain, I don't think it's necessary cause the car is already pretty "free".

isn't there something that can be done to the belt to loosen it up rather than cutting teeth.

I run on an outdoor track and they are for sure worth it for the front, dont have them on the back. Just remember to order the REAR spring steel hubs........

I'd like to add to that BHenderson, the spring steel axles will not damage from hard hits like the aluminums so if your track is hard on cars then I would invest in a set for the front.

hi guys, i want to convert my FOC to the short arms of the FK, what parts do i need aside from the arms? part numbers would also be appreciated.

also, for those who have tried both pillow ball, long and short arms, what are the handling differences of the three set-ups? i am currently using the pillow ball set-up and so far it suits me well.

finally, do i need to replace the shock towers of my FOC with that of the FK?

tanx, any help would be appreciated.

No need to change the shock mounts, although the carpet front mount will be needed on carpet.

unless they changed their policy on these bulkheads, they aren't available for purchase at hobby shops, you have to contact xray.
