what will it contribute in terms of shock performance? would it make it more consistent?

So that the diagfram does not get in stuck on there since no force (sponge or others) to pull it back in.

Here is one that fits perfectly for both Xray and Serpent shocks,

PITZHIMITSU-PS0902 Silicon Soft Diagfram + Sponge Set

The 2 o-ring type to replace the sponge has first been used (that I know of) by Surikarn C on 414M era.

Less stress on drive train thus prolonge the life of all moving parts (bearing is the most commons ) I also found gain in motor performance, for ex, geared 1 tooth higher.

That's one hell of a rebound. But if it works.......why not.

Default Low pulley set

I started putting my low ratio pulley set on, and I think I need something else. Do I need a different spur gear shaft? The front belt seems awful loose and there was an extra gear in the bad that was a little bigger. It just wont work though (no place for the one-way bearing to go). So I guess I need to know is there a different shaft I need to buy?

Yes you'll need the solid aluminium layshaft to fit the low ratio pulleys. The extra pulley that comes with the low ratio pulley set is for a one way/spool.
You can't use the central one way with the new pulleys.

Let me know [actual $$, tax,paypal & s/h; I'm not looking to make a dime] and I'll call them and let you know if they are in stock and when I could get them & sent.

BTW, they usually beat Stormer's hobbies prices by about 10%, which would make up the difference in the tax and help cover some of the other charges. Xray is a prdominant ran kit at the track, so he does pretty well by the racers and their commonly needed kits/parts.

Right now I am looking for the T1FK complete differential assembly, the new thicker chassis and the new front shock tower.

i don't think that mike has any factory diffs or new thick chassis. As far as front shock tower, I think that there are carpet shock towers. Have not heard of "new" front shock tower.

I don't think that you are going to find the new chassis in the states. Not until RCAmerica gets their first shipment.

Is this some kind of performance gain or is it to stop leaks or both?

My stock FK shocks leak slowly and I have to refill them after a couple of days racing.

Thanks for trying to help. That is why I was looking overseas to begin with. Nobody in the U.S. has parts left in stock.

Maybe the shock seals are broken (grit might have got them)

Front or rear diff?

Got any part #s I could use to make the call?

But I think Theisgroup is right, Mike's won't have the latest stuff yet. I could still check, though.
