Thumbs up No Problem

I cannot take credit for figuring that out on my own though. Ultimately, you can thank Joneser. I just saw your post before he did.

Just read the comparo in XRC and as expected the FK came out on top. Props to an awesomely designed car and a great company.

I wouldn't mess with the pulleys, they need to be fairly precise. I have heard of people cutting out overy other tooth on the belts to make the drivetrain more free but that is pretty extreme in my opinion. I have found the stock T1FK drivetrain to be very free...maybe the most free drivetrain of the current top kits.

if ur not yet using the blue sealed bearings, then go get some, that contributes to a free drive train also.

Does anyone use the aluminium rear hubs for the T1FK? I was thinking of getting some but they are expensive and was wondering if it was a performance enhancing part?

i believe that josh c. runs them on carpet. I think he said that they were stiffer and did not flex as much.

Default Xray alloy rear hubs

Yeah defo a good tuning part, especially when running proline wheels. The standard xray plastic flexs quite abit and if using the proline wheels the whole package flexs so much, that they rub on the bottom of the shock.

The alloy hub, obviously dosen't flex and is much more consistant handling wise.

Try drilling a hole about 2.5mm above the existing too.

Changes the rear roll centre.

Theisgroup.. does your friend also make the front spindles?


Can anyone tell me if you need new front hinge pins when converting to short arms aka FK style from EVO long arm style. maybe someone has a part number for them also
Mine look a little long.


Thanks, Deves

no, we have been using the composit one that xray has.

Yes you need new hinge pins, or you will need to cut the one you have down to size.

I have a T1R and was wondering what all would be needed to convert to woven graphite chassis. Is it possible that it would bolt in place of the plastic one????

i am not sure about Fk parts, but i do know a Evo2 fits on a T1R chassis, i have done it before. But if your just gonna get the CF chassis parts, then you will need CF Chassis, CF Top Deck, Front and Rear CF Shock Towers, if you want to get the bumper brace in CF but they seem to break a bit.

Can you flush out the stock bearings that come with the T1R kit? They seem to be sealed. Thanks.

I think the bearings that Xray gives you are very good and free. I think you can take off the seal with an x-acto knife.
