When running the battery on the right side, do you need to alter the shock to account for the shifted position of the ball stud?

Hello Peter I read you setup and I did't know before now that it was you racing against Hagberg, so it was my car Alf against Bruce Car you have very good power, that is something I have to work on, and the car looked very good.

You may know that Hagberg missed one Qualifications as we got some el issues.

Also Bruce thanks for the help in 17.5 Blinky, it did help winning my final, not sure if I am going to run this class at snowbirds I'm having a hard time getting this 17.5 blinky up to the power I need, in my heat some cars have way more power than mine. The only reason that I won that heat is less mistakes and a very easy car to drive thanks to Bruce.

If I run pink rear tires like someone in the 17.5 blinky I don't think my car will move at all maybe the motor is broken.

Alf

Yes, it shifts the ball stud forward or back depending if you are right or left sided. You will need to adjust the shock slightly since the shock mount plate cannot simply be flipped because of the counter sink for the flat head screws.

You also must glue the servo in as it will not line up with both ears when it is flipped to the left side.

Just e-mailing with Bruce, I bought the XRay XII conversion from him at IIC, and love it.

I've got an XRay X10 WGT T-bar car, and want to do his conversion to it. He replied that someone on here had posted a parts list for the conversion from the T-bar car. Does anyone know where that post is. I've searched a bunch of combinations of Speed Merchant/XRay/X10/Conversion, but haven't been able to find it.

Thanks in advance!

Yes it is.
17.5 blinky is fun, the racing is tight.

Mod is for the pure grin factor
