Easiest way is to buy the whole c-hub conversion kit

Default Upgraded Bumper

Does anyone have any recommendations for an upgraded bumper for a T1R? My son and I are new to racing and keep breaking the upper and lower stock bumper braces. Will the composite bumper work better than the impact bumper that comes stock with the car?

Hey guys I finally upgraded my T1R to close to FK with short arms and what not. I notice that on the FK the lower pin holders have some sort of a alum nut, bolt or something like that. I assume this is to make it possible to change a arm without taking the bulk heads off. unfortunatly I dont have these and I wondered if they sold these sepeatly or if I should just pick up some longer screws and nuts?

Also I converted to a BMI chasis at the same time and now I want to know what is the best way to mount the front camber links to the shock tower.

I have instaled a sway bar in the front. I want to know if when not in use, should I remove all the parts ot the sway bar or can I just remove the bar and leave the rest attached.

I know that these q's have been answered because I have read them before but I dont want to read through the 150+ pages I have read in this topic.

i believe the composite/impact bumper is the bottom piece, under the foam.

The composite being a solid piece of plastic, the impact being slotted

Default Upgraded Bumper

The upper and lower braces are both composite. I do plan to get the P DUb foam bumper as well. Spoke with Xray today and they recommended I try the composite bumper part # 30 1200. I will everyone know how it works once I get some run time. Thanks for everyones input.

All the parts can be purchase separately to upgrade your suspension. I normally would just take one side to eliminate rollbar effect, but most of the guys I know don't even bother running swaybars anyway on FK as it has shorter suspension arms.

I replace it once it breaks to provide highest level of protection since my son and I are new to racing.
