Mikejr, you can cut a little bit off of the shock eyelet to lower the spring perch. Or you could use some Associated ones. Teamtamale makes some as well.

I have the Team Tamale lowered spring perches and they're great! Must have for the carpet guys. They also just came out with a 4-1/2 C-hub. Right between the 3 and 6 from Xray. The C-hubs are also VERY strong, they take a beating which Xray can not and will bend. I'm very impressed with Team Tamale.

Default shocks are easyt to build now.

Hey all,

I dont know if you guys know this yet-but Team Tamale came up with the uber tool for Xrays this week. Its a shock building tool that safely, but securley hold the shock piston so you can thread on the ballcup!! Probably the #1 most complained about part of building a Xray.


I thk they will work with all shocks, not just Xray-but you might want to confirm that!!

Ray

Rouge Element also has some shock saft pliers that looks very nice. Haven't tried them though.


I always used an old side-cut plier to grip the top of the threaded part on the shock saft, works like a charm![

Yeah - And pre-threading the ballcup with a m3x8 screw makes it much easier to install the ball cup on the end of the shock shaft with angled pliers to grip the threads.

But yeah, Team Tamale's gipper vice grips look nice!

Silly question....but did you adjust your gearing when you went to the low ratio set?

you have to recalculate all your gear ratios and roll out charts. using the 1.77 not the 2.125

Actually you should be calculating with 1,78 (32/18).

actually you should be calculating it with 1.777777777777777777777777777777777. or you can do what the crowd does and do 1.77. the .0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 000000000000000000001 is not that big of a deal and will not make the gearing that much different to where you are out of range of the motor you are using.

but if you always have a calculator at hand, you should just use the 32/18 as the internal. that will get you the most acurate and then to get roll out you can use circumference of your tire divided by the diameter of your tire for the value of pi

Word is, there will be a covnversion kit of the new car for the current FKs. That's the beauty behind Xray's mindset. You can go back to the first T1 generation and still update them without ever buying a whole new kit. That's what gets me when people say "they come out with a new car every 6 months." I like to think of them as refinements. It's not like other manufacturers never came out with "TEAM" cars or "G+" upgrades. I say to them, "does this look like a Tamiya to you ... huh, Punk?!" lol!

Default Wheel Axles

On the factory kit the wheel axles are aluminum. Is the optional 22 mm spring steel axles lighter than the aluminum ones or just more durable ?

There was a converstion from T1 to Evo2 as well, the problem beign that the cost to replace the chassis, top plate, rear bulkhead, center layshaft and possibly the rear diff outdrives wouldlikely ad up to the price of a complete kit
