L1/L2 ball studs come with the kit. H1/H2 are option parts.

I believe that swapping L1/L2 ball studs from side-to-side (and mounting with the lettering down) is similar to H1/H2 geometry. Drew should know mo better.

Question about camber links...what effect does raising the roll center at the inner link (say upper inner) *and* adding shims under the outer ballstud have vs lower inner with fewer shims on the outer stud. In other words, keeping the link angle the same but raising the entire link. I'm assuming it would be similar to raising the RC with the suspension holders, just less dramatic of an effect. I'd like to know Paul's take on this as well as I noticed on his starting carpet setup he is running upper inner with 5mm shims on the rear links. Thanks!

Default H1 H2 Roll centre question

I have just bought a pair of the H1 H2 roll centres for my T2 009, I have fitted them to the front of my car. I currently run a 1mm shim on top of the front c hubs, Do I need to put a thicker shim on the C hubs or leave as they are ???

If I recall the 'H' RC's raise the link at the inside by 1mm, so to keep the same angle you need to raise the outer by 1mm also.

If I understand you mean to deliberately run them the wrong side of the car.

With or without the writting down?

Do you have any photo's to show exactly what you mean.

hi fellas need your advices.

I have xray t2008 (quite old model bought this two years ago, then took a rest from playing rc, never have chance to assemble the said kit )
Now im trying to carve my way in by assembling the kit.
I have asssembled the car based on the manual recommendation.
installed the "diff pully 38T (rear and front)" , "fixed pully 16T" and "spur gear 84T (48 pitch)"
Now my question is what pinion T should i install to match the said combination or, what is the best FDR if i am tending to use 11.5T brushless motor?

Your advise would be appreciated

Thank you

What you could/should do is put the set-up changes that you are asking about on your car and try it for about 10-20 laps.

See how it feels to you.

Doing this give you first hand experience on what set-up changes can do to the handling of the car. Also helps you to learn what changes you might need to make if the car is not handling well or is not as fast as you would like.

Good Luck

No the H1 goes on the left and the H2 goes on the right. With the writing facing up.

I would think about starting out around a 7.00 FDR.

Thanks Drew

Guys with the link in that spot its like the hill billy link but shorter so you have a little more camber gain do to the fact the link is shorter. But the car seems to act better with this link over the hill billy link, sometimes my car would do weird stuff with the hill billy link. I thought this link was better and I would like to know what you guys think of it. I will take a picture of my car and post it.

Thanks Drew
