hey Jim.

Ya to stop the shock rubbing that's all u have to do. I cut into the arm about 2mm to make sure it didn't rub at all.

Ya I love the car. It is way faster and an overall better car than my losi ever was.

Would someone mind taking a pic of the Dremeled arm so I can see where you all are grinding?

Thanks!

Rob

Rob-forgot to answer your PM-its Radio Shack or CRC carry them!!

As for the arm-you dremel off the entire shock mount-then into the arm a mm or two. My tip-drill the hole through the arm first-then dremel.
This will cause NO degradation of arm strength!!

Default T1 ---> FK conversion

Hi guys, I have bought a c-hub front and rear conversion kit, low ratio pulley set, central layshaft set and front and rear short arms for my t1. Did i miss out anything else for a FK conversion?

Thanks.

you will also need new mounts for the inner hinge pins. and if you want a true factory. new rear shock tower, new diffs, new layshaft, and new bulkhead. also the plastic upper bumper brace.

oh yeah, forgot the lightened hex axels and dog bones.

The FK Bulkheads have more adjustment, and you'll also want the stiff top deck or an aftermarket chassis...

the other components have also been lightened on the FK...

You may also need new turnbuckles to shorten your linkages

Default Thanks!!!

Hi guys, thanks for the quick reply. Are the new diffs really necessary? I have got the shock towers and the original fk chassis and upper deck brand new from a friend's kit though. Will not commit on the bulkheads as yet...pretty much not worth to convert if i get them. New turnbuckles are taken care of in the c-hub conversion kit.

I have an Evo 2 that I lovingly refer to as my Evo 2.5. I have updated everything to a factory kit except the bulkheads. I have pics posted at:

http://justin.rogers.home.insightbb.com/

I have since ordered the front roll bar and the roll center and Ackerman adjustment parts.

I have 2 questions.

Aside from the physical differences between the bulkheads has anyone noticed a difference in the way the car handles?

I am trying to make up my mind if it is worth the $100 for the upgrade.

My last question is kind of silly and I think I have been over thinking the whole thing.

When tightening or loosening the belts do I move the eccentric carriers the same direction or in the opposite direction?

(i.e. if I move one towards the front of the car do I move the other toward the rear?)

thanks

The turnbuckles are still for the longer arms in the C-Hub conversion...

withtheshort arms you'll need to get shorter turnbuckles so that you can keep your upper pivot links short....

When I just got the aluminum shock bodies and new insides, after rebuildinging them there seems to be alot of bubbles in my oil....what could be the source of the air leak...anybody have advice for building these evil serpent shocks? ( Yes the do get tiresome to rebuild....and yes they are evil...)
