You can use Speedmind or Tamiya (the one from the 04, 414 etc)

I need some suggestions on what to get for my soon to come FK's.

I am getting a BMI chassis, ceramic bearings, spring steel hexes, al roll center bridge, aluminum rear uprights, front spindles, and front carriers, and lastly, I am getting a JWerks titanium screw kit.

Is there anything else I need to get?

The Rear Aluminum roll center standoffs may be better than the bridge..allows you to use the shorter rear link position and gets the arms about as close as possible to being parallel

Winsorguy is right. You dont need the bridge, just the Rear Aluminum roll center standoffs. Super stiff BMI chassis is a must (batteries moved forward and a few mm closer together). Xray bearings are top notch. They come degreased, but lubed, and are the most free bearings in any kit. If you get a spare set of Xray bearings, those for some reason are even more free, I mean super free. I could literally spin them in my fingers for about 10sec. If you get anything else aluminum for you car, get Team Tamale C-hubs. And forget about the titanium screw kit. You shouldn't mix Ti with Alum. because those two metals will "coldfuse" together without any protective barriers between them. The kit already comes with some light weight alum. hex screws for all the light stress areas. And strong steal screws for high stress areas. Plus the car is nearly 150g below legal weight limit. More than enough room to add the BMI and some alum. parts.

Default Gearing

Im wondering what to do about gearing on my low ratio evo2.

I could keep my 124T spur and put a 30T pinion, or buy the stock 93T spur and use a 27T pinion.

so my options are
30/124
27/93
for a stock motor. Both yeild a similar ratio but will one work better, or is there little difference at all?

i would assume that the 124 is 64pitch and the 93 is 48 pitch. the 124 will give you a little more tunign in the long run. Usig 64 pitch gears you can fine tune your ratio a little more. either way, you want to ge tthe largest spur to keep the belt from dragging on the motor.

19 turn 124t
Stock 128-132
mod 128-132

I would say if you own a Xray-you should have at least two different sizes-124 and 128 at the least. But its best to have 124, 128, 130 and 132.

Duckman - thanks for the reply. I may give the Tamiya shocks a shot in the future. If there is anything Xray could fix about the car, it's the shocks. I'm sick of them already, and I've only had the car for a few weeks.
