For high traction tight tracks a 25t pinion will gain you more through the infield.

anodizing goes roughly 50 microns in...and adds about 25ish microns to the outside of component..so not even 'measurable' without decent equipment.

TeamGP- I'm not saying your PT won't work cause I'm sure it is/does, but numerous tests both by our club and others including AMB testing have shown the number of hits the decoder sees with the PT mounted vertical instead of horizontal is much less. I wouldn't suggest anyone mount their PT like that...

Hope that info helps some!

I had some 1/8th lexan so I ended up making a piece so I could hang it off the servo....

Just finished building my T1FK05 and building the shocks does suck as badly as everyone warned. They still rebound slightly but I suppose I will have to live with it for the time being

Anyone have any better luck with any other manufacturer's shocks?

Building the shocks does SUCK! Fortunately, I found an easier way of doing it! I bought this locking shock shaft pliers from teamtamale.com and let me tell you it REALLY made life easier for me! Building shocks is now a breeze! Only $25 too!

I almost picked that up but I'm not having trouble getting the ball ends on, my problem is bleeding the shocks. Does this tool help with that?

For bleeding the shocks I used the Tamiya shock vaccum tool. I can't remember the part number but it REALLY helps with bleeding shocks. It was a bit expensive though. It's nice to have but not necessary. I just did mine very carefully by moving the shock rod up and down ever so slowly until all the bubbles were out.

Would like to know what servo you fine folks are running? A lot of the pros seem to be using the Airtronics 94360 but was hoping to find something cheaper to start off with.
