The low ratio pulleys will help the car's drivetrain spool up faster. The short arms seem to make the car transition from side to side faster.

frft arms
30-2159 (2)
hinge pin holders
30-2040
30-2032 alum nut
rear

arms
30-3159
holders 30-2040 total of 7 should have one solid plastic one that goes on the rear of the frt right bulkhead
30-2032 total of 7 frt and rear

30-9319 spacer kit

The rear hinge pins are a little long but if you have a dremel you can cut them to fit.

I think that is it

Yes they are,, They have a hole that the aluminum nut fits into instead of putting screws into the plastic holders like on the FOC

you dont absolutely need the different hinge pin holders and pins. all you need to do is find a way to hold them in. that is what i did. im a really cheap guy.

Default belt cars compared to shaftys

hey guys i got my xray running (t1r) with the same gear from my Barracuda (r2) but i thought some thing was holding it back from accelating wooohhh i said in my head shafts are better performers. I was like i give it full throttle and i was waiting for it to reach top speed but in my other car as soon as i hit full throttle it was there. Is there anyway i can improve on this, i have tried changing pinions and freeing up the drive train but it is very free and the belts are runnning very smooth

any help ????

thanks

the low ratio pulleys could give you an extra jump. Whats your spur/pinion?
