Well an Fk is gonna cost you up to $300+ and that extra diff probably $40-45.

The Evo2 is a great kit, if your willing to make the change then go for it.

You can go to: Speedtechrc.com/KtHobbies.com/Stomerhobbies.com/Horizonhobby.com etc.

What is the size of those Layshaft bearings? And how much you think they go for???

Mine siezed today and exploded after a year which isnt too bad, i picked up on a little trick to help it from siezing but would like to get some extra bearings just in case.

Thanks
Jon

well i already paid $240 for the evo2 (idiotically) and i think i will be on the bad side of the deal anyway. i can get a factory for $289 so im not too worried about that.

289 nib is a good price. I got mine for 285 over the summer.

Oh ya, lol sorry. On the layshaft of either the FK or T1R. You'll see that black piece before the gear pullies, i heard you should sand that alittle because there is no movement when pull on the layshaft. So as the layshaft is spinning and getting those RPMs starts to heat up, by sanding that piece down you should be able to move the layshaft alittle instead of it being stuck right on the bulkheads.

Its kinda hard to explain i can get a pic up soon. I still have to do the sanding but a "pro" at my track told me it should help it for the bearings siezing.

Let me know if its clear.

Jon

I think you will only sell at a loss, it's better to keep it, all you really need is the 1.77 ratio.
