So they're no longer in the FK kits?

They are still in the kits just you have to buy a second one if you want to run a front diff.

FYI-This initial order that came into RC America does not contain any Diffs. The next shipment which I imagine will be coming in shortly will in fact have the diffs and other parts in it.

Hope that helps.....

sorry Ray, I did not see any. I will ask some of the guys there if they even exist to us mortals.

Hi guys, just wanted to share my experience...

recently got a new T1-Raycer, and im just lovin' it. its my first EP car (previously drove gas TC cars)....the handling out of the box is great. at my local track here, im easily keeping up with the T1-Factory Kits and TC3 FT's. fantastic!!!

building it was easy, and the quality is top notch...no problems at all. now im even thinking of selling it off to get a Factory Kit as it already comes with all the goodies...

cheers & have fun!

I asked Jilles Groskamp the same thing, in short he said that the gains in left handed corners (more grip and steering) weren't big enough to counter the losses in right hand corners, He tried it at the Euro's in Switzerland, that was 2years ago and he hasnt run it since.

Hi,

Can someone direct me to a Jilles Groskamp setup for the FT with rubber tires on carpet?

Thanks!

I am so close to CA'ing a thin sheet of carbon fiber on the arm to at least see if the car handles different and also if it helps to set droop more accurately.

I agree with you. I hate the fact that the ride height\droop changes from arm to arm. And I am sure that they don't flex evenly so right to left is different as well

Theisgroup-and another problem-the droop screw is so close to the pivot point of the arm-it rotates as much as goes up and down-so it slides along the chassis instead of hitting square and thenstopping the arm from moving further. OH well-as we all know-the short arms WORK, but they werent exactly designed for the car.

weren't they originally from the T1m?

i think its about time xray developed some specially for the 10th scale...it might save them money by using molds they already have but they say they provide the best quality so why dont they provide us with parts that are designed for the car they are being used on most!

Good grief. That's a 5.49 FDR. What is the temperature of your motor when it comes off the track?
I haven't actually run it yet, I'm waiting my ESC someone who also has a T1R (also 1.77 ratio) who runs at the same track suggested it, so I got it
