Hope its not to confusing.

actually in stock, you want it as loose as possible without skiping. so one tighter then skip. This reduces the friction in the drivetrain to a min.

I built may car last night!

I ran into 2 problems. 1 - any tips on building the shocks? I tried over and over and never got them right. 2 - Has anyone managed to fit a Novak Xxtra and GT-7 in a T1-R? If so, do you have any pics? I have a Xxl I can use if I have to but would prefer to use the Xxtra if I can fit it in.

Thanks for the help so far!!

1- i have the same problem with shocks.
2- you can mount your reciever on top of the servo, but i wouldnt like it there, i use the XXL. But if you prefer the XXtra, then you can mount it on the servo, but then the wires are going through the belts or over the top deck, which i dont like. I use a LRP Q2, and XXL. I might switch to GT7, but for now LRP Q2.

they do flop up and down a little, but really nothing of concern. Some of the other seasoned drivers may be able to shed some light on this one. I have always been told as loose as posibble in stock.

on my setup, you know the notch on the bulkhead all by itself on the loose side, I use the next tighter one. so would not use the notch by itself.

Adjustable shocks are just such a cool feature. I don't know why you wouldn't want them unless you always race at the same track and your track conditions never change.

With 64 pitch you may have problems mounting them on the shaft. Depending on which brand gears you use. I had a bunch of HPI 64p gears and they wouldn't fit on the shaft because the screw holes wouldnt line up properly. Anyway I like 48p now because they dont strip as easily. I have never stripped a 48p gear but I stripped lots of 64p gears.

I have a couple Trinity 64 pitch spur gears, and they just fit. I kinda have to force it on it, but if you use a dremel or x-acto knife than you can cut inside to make it bigger hole. But the mounting holes fit perfect.

Sunday was my first club race with my new T1FK. It was awesome. I have been running the T1 Evo2 for over a year and that was good but now that I have the FK I can see that the FK is a superior design. The most important design change I think is the shorter suspension arms all around. I always use a front one-way and with my Evo2 I was always struggling to keep the rear end from getting loose mid-corner. Every adjustment I could do was never quite enough. When I built the T1FK I set it up with exactly the same suspension settings as my Evo2 so I could compare the performance. I never had any handling problems all day Sunday and I never had to make one single chassis adjustment to the car.

As a result I qualified 2nd and I finally took my first A-main win at my local club race.

I highly recommend the T1 Factory Kit.
