[QUOTE]
Can I get some help from some xray experts. Will the low ratio pulleys make a big difference when i'm racing in stock class? Is the solid center layshaft better than the one-way? The reason I'm asking is because I recently bought an xray with both setups but I only have the spur and pinion combination for the oneway. And if I change to the low ratio pulleys, that means I'll have to buy new pinions and new spurs since the ratios will be way off. If the difference isnt too big...I would rather save some money. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

The low ratio pulleys were designed to "free up" the car. In theory the more free a car is the faster it will go. So yes there should be a difference in top speed. If it was me I would run the car with low ratio pulleys. BTW You would only need to buy new pinions if you have the 128 64 pitch gear or 93 48 pitch gear. Hope this helps.

Also can`t use 26mm rims on back if i use the outside holes on wishbones, well i can but the edge of the rim rubs against the ballend of the shock
Any ideas
I just built my FT and had the same problem. It turns out I did not push the cups that hold the springs down onto the shock ball ends. I had to press very hard, but once they were down all of the ride height problems went away.

Just get it, experiment with it, and you will have some questions along the way!

I even turn down the dual rate, but the alum hubs kept spreading. You have to consider that the alum hubs are the softest metal in the universal.

If you think the Evo2 FOC is a beast, you should run the FT.

No it not the shock spring retainers,i done that
Camber links are fit ,which is inside hole,
It feels like the springs are to long,the whole back end is very springy as you push down & let go(very tense)
