Default 303031 Roll Center Alu Holder

Waht exactly do the Roll Center Holder's do?

I know they change the roll center of the car but to what effect? More rear end grip?

they tend to give you more rear end grip because of more camber change but at the same time i thought it freed up the car. it also seems to keep the car flatter, great for mod.

Thanks Spaz - i'll try them out. More rear end grip is what I need in mod.

I'm sure that this has been asked before, but the search feature is not very helpful trying to pinpoint in what page. Anyway my question is does anybody have any tips on rebuilding the shocks?
I've never had as much trouble with shocks as I have had with these, I've built Tamiya's (many, of them), AE's, HPI's, never having the kind of hassle that I'm having with the Serpent ones,
the instructions say that once capped the shaft should not extend by itself, if it does to repeat the bleeding process. This is next to impossible unless the shocks are underfilled. Please help I've tried repeatedly with no success, what's the best way to put these together.

Well that's about where I'm at right now, the instructions that I'm going by are the ones that came with the kit originally, it's an Evo2. Please help guys.

Default loose belts

Hey guys, after converting my old T1 with the low ratio pulleys, i am experiencing loose front and rear belts. I have a belt tensioner fitted on the front belt, so it doesn't sag as much as the rear. Btw, i reused the old belts for the higher ratio pulleys and my rear bulkheads are the non-adjustable ones. Question is will the belts still feel loose even if i change new ones? And, is it possible to fit a rear belt tensioner too? Please advise. Thanks lots.

Cheers.
