Same here. I just put the 28's on, and dialed out about 30% of my steering and all was good. Still had plenty of throw.

what size is the optional solid axle (part: 305180)? 34T or 32T?

If its 34T, can i use the 32T pulley from the FK's one-way on this solid axle?

You can use the 32T from the oneway. I don't think it comes with a gear at all.

I have a dumb question here. Are there any setup or handling issues between the old T1's pivot ball suspension system and the current c-hubs suspension system on the FK? I've just got possession of an old T1 with pivot ball suspension system. Looks awesome!!

The pivot ball suspension it very sluggist in the turns. It doesn't seem as responsive as the chub.

That's just the nature of pivot ball suspension. The pivot ball gives the car more roll into the turns.

Couldn't we counter it with a roll bar ?

You could but it still won't be as responsive as chub let alone chub with the short arms. Also there are very few hobby shops that carry the pivot ball parts.

I do have to say the pivot ball suspension is very durable. At our local track, there is still one that is running it and hasn't really broken any parts.

I can vouch for that !! There is one running at my local track and I shall be the second fellow running one. I've noticed that fellow's T1 is pretty dialed in. There are a couple of Cudas, TC3, Yoks and a whole lot of X-Rays T1R, Evo2 and an FK running. He has yet to break anything through out this sesson and while we're changing a couple broken chubs and arms by now.

Anyway...I'll scream for help here should I need some.

C Hubs and Arms break very often?

Do they require a pretty big hit to break?

I've been running pivot ball since it first came out and I have only broken one part on the entire car since I had it. That was an inner hinge pin mount. That's over 4 years, with one broken part. Racing at SoCal, which is highly competitive track that can be brutal on arms depending on the layout. I took a year or so off, so actually more like two years of continuous racing. Anyhow, just waiting for FK kits to come in at this point.

Some places close to RC America already have thier gear in stock, and for example Speedtech are gettin thier order later this week. I dont know if you're too late to put in a pre-order; Steve emailed me today to advise the cars are coming into stock on Friday. Put in a pre-order and you shouldnt have any problems getting hold of one

Speedtech also have the best price of any of the on-line retailers I have seen.
