Someone explain to me exactly which models of the factory kit need the extra little .5mm washer installed on one side of the front suspension. I have already read about it on this thread and I know exactly where it is supposed to go and why but when I carefully examine my chassis I can not see any difference in the left and right side alignment of the hinge pins.

they say you need on on the servo side, but I am using the alumin nuts on all the suspension mounts, so have not taken a caliper to it to verify there is a problem.

I would think that adding weight where it is needed is alot better then just adding weight.
Yes, central mass is better then a distributed mass. (Polar moment of inertia if you are curious) But then, those of use that can tell the difference would be sponsored. The new xray chassis looks like it has a slightly better setup for the rear droop screws. The screw is not at the edge of the CF.

the nice thing about jason at BMI. Ask and you shall receive. I already asked him to add some material for the droop screws in the rear on my chassis

My question is, compared to the current FK tower (i got a 4 hole one not the 3 hole as in the instructions), do the shock and roll-centre holes line up? are the different hights/angles? Of course i reliaze the new outer camber link mounts, just woundering about the others?
i also got the 4 hole shock tower i also have those questions in mind. i think the 4 hole shock tower is for carpet use. i run my can on asphalt and it seems to work fine. honestlyi think my t1fk hs the best handling over the other xrays around (locally).

* all other fk's in my area have the 3 hole shock tower.

In case you wonder,

I believe XR-302093 ULTRA-TUNE SHOCK TOWER FRONT - GRAPHITE is the part number that comes with the first batch (3 holes) and the part number still remain on the current batch part list

if you got the carpet towers, then yes, the holes are different for the inside camber link. I believe on the 3 hole shock tower the inside link is higher then on the carpet tower.

Anyway, as for my current use of S9550 servo, also that I mounted the servo stay (that aluminum things) not in the most forwad position (closer to center of car) due to that the suspension holder (all plastic only, step 4 front transmission) on that side need 5mm spacer in order to line up the same with the other side, I need horn that will make my servo linkage towards more to the center of the car. The original Xray will make it closer to the servo while the one from S710 will make it farther (closer to belt) and still need +0.75mm spacer to have the linkage straight.

Did you get what I mean?
Hey Pyramid, Bro! Tried the S710's servo saver on the T1KF and it's a perfect fit and the linkage is straight without needing to shim it

Thanks for the tip

Default shock length T1FK

There is no mention of this in the manual....I'm sure someone has posted it already, but I can't seem to find it in the postings.

Can anyone tell me what the correct length of the shocks is for the T1FK?

Thanks, Mark.

Whatever they build too. They are longer then what the droops screws will allow. Droop sets the effective shock length.
