Green, this is what Speedo and I were talking about. It helps if you do this while the alum. axles are still new. But if yours are not in bad shape, you may still be able to do this.

Good luck!

I hate those axles when they mushroom like that. And the bulkhead screws that refuse to come out. Other than that I love X-Rays...lol

Is there another source for T1FK zero degree castor blocks other that the aluminum ones from X-Ray?

Xray is releasing 1.5 degree composite caster blocks, you might want to try those.

Other than that, the Xray aluminum ones are your only option for 0 degree. Many people have reported problems with the Xray aluminum blocks bending however, so you may want to take that into consideration.

Does anyone know if there is a optional chassis for the T1FK04 that has the same layout as the 3.5mm chassis but is still only 2.5mm thick? I like the improved battery and servo placement on the newer chassis but don't want 3.5mm thick.

I am trying to install the Low ratio pulley set. I have the hollow spring steel layshaft.
I have noticed that the pulleys are in a straight line down the chassis. Are there any diagrams for assembly to ensure I have done this correctly?

Currently, I have from spur across, plastic washer, pulley open end right over pin, pulley open end over pin, the threaded plastic bit from the origianl setup holding it all together. Help!!??

I think you have to have the aluminum layshaft for the low ratio pullies to fit. I don't think you will be able to use the spring steel one.

you do not need the nut. the way it is installed is as follows from spur in:

bulkhead, spacer, plastic washer, pin, pulley over pin, pin, pulley over pin, c-clip, bulkhead.

the clip will sit in a groove on the layshaft. I don't have the spring steel solid layshaft, so not sure.
