I think they are hardened or clear coated. They dont look like natural aluminum. They looks a little darker than just natural stuff.

I figured they had some coating, can anyone verify this for sure, I want to anodize them but that might be more trouble than its worth.

But it comes with it for the solid layshaft on the T1R.

One of our local racers did his in red, it looks really good. I think he said he was charged like $45 for it. If they have a coting you can take it off with some ez-off oven cleaner and a scowering pad. But I don't think they are coated they tend to tarnish after a while.

Also,

I know most people use Light Purple Springs in front ( i think thats the color) and Violet in Rear for springs. Since i do not that that color for the front what is the next best set-up to go to? Violet/Blue? I currently run Violets all around and i seem fine but i need the rear to just come around the slightest bit.

Jon
Adjust the droop to control oversteer into the corner. The more rear droop you run, the more weight transfer to the front and the more oversteer you will get.

Run the heaviest springs that don't bounce the car down the track, then adust front to rear bias to get the corner handling that you want. Most normally run the same front to back to 2 springs heavier in the front

Default Shaft

Hi,

If you want a shaft driven X-ray, then you should get the m18.

Ther will defenitly not be a shaft driven X-ray at the worlds.

Please stop the geusing and start talking about racing.

Default Evo 2 to a T1 FK

What is the difference between the 2 models. Might get a 2nd hand Evo 2 and convert it. What parts do I need to get? Any help would be appreciated.
