I have Run the short arms on the T1R,For a tight track i thought they worked great,All you need is the A arms,Rear # 303159,Front # 302159,You also need to change the mounts,they move from the inside to the outside on the bulkheads,and the alum. holders(cant think of the right name)It's not alot of money and it's very easy to do..I thought it made the car alot better.

Default Rear Shocks

Anyone try running those rear shocks on the otherside of the shock tower? I tried it last saturday but i really didnt have time to sit there and fiddle with it.

I got 2 runs with it and it seemed okay, i think my shock setup is alittle too stiff and my dampening as well. So i changed that. I was originally running 50wt all around with 1 hole front and 3 rear with purple and violet i think.

I went to 40wt front 1 hole (might try 2) and 30wt rear with 3 holes open still. Going to try one step softer around or just run violets all around maybe.

Anyone notice a tweak int the chassis when the shocks are mounted like that?

Jon

I was going to do this on my T1R awhile back but I thought I read that the droop screws didnt sit on the chassis quite right on the T1R with the short arms? Any problems? If not then I will definitely be swapping over.

I have ordered the spring steel axels, and am hoping they will fix the problem. If you can't buy the steel ones, and your aluminum ones are already bent, you are probably out of luck. You could possibly save some money by buying another pair of aluminum axels, and use a dremel to take some material out of the inside of the axel so that the driveshaft can't make contact.
I have this exact problem. So much so that the axle has mushroomed out over the bearing, making it impossible to remove the axle assembly from the steering knuckle. Is the only way to get this out to cut the knuckle in half? perhaps try to cut away the axle from the bearing? I can race this weekend with it, i just had to turn my radio end points down. Its just frustrating to get a car and find this wrong with it

take a smal file and file the outside edge of the axel down. you should be able to file it down enough to slip it through the bearings.
