what effect on the car will moving the shock holes on the rear arms from the inside to the outer holes have?

Went to the track today, and low and behold they finally had some new FK05 kits in....Much to my suprise the kits now come with two chassis a 2.0mm and a 3.0mm and the wide top deck..... What the hell RC America??? I bought my kit and then shelled out another 100.00 for the multi diff and the battery strap, things that should already come with the car. Wow am I disapointed with RC America right now. I sure hope they offer to sell me a 3.0mm chassis and the top deck for 20.00 which is the price difference of the kit I saw today and the one I bought.

Apparently RC America ran out of 2.5mm chassis, so rather than stop shipment of the kits until they get stock in they decided to release a limited number of kits with both the 2.0 and 3.0mm chassis.

I was going to order the Tamale rear hubs a few hours ago but had to leave. Now they're out of stock

Default Rear Droop

Measure rear droop from under the rear hub, not the arm.

Later,

Does anyone have a part number for a 32T diff gear?? I am running the low ratio pulleys in my T1R and was only running a one way cause I only raced at SoCal...now that I'm trying out a parking lot race, I'l like to put a diff upfront and maintain the same ratio....thanks!

FOUND IT....THANKS ANYWAY.....

Hey Pezz, my kit didn't come with the wide top deck, I think Shay got the one hanging on the wall, RATS!! He beat me to it.DEBBIE!!!
But the battery slots are beveled on the 3mm chassis, yeh! The 3800's fit perfect!
Now I'm just waiting for the multi-diff to get there.

Is it true that installing hard a-arms all around will improve steering and handling noticeable (running with rubber tires on carpet)?

I would guess no.....the rubber tires are in need of traction and installing hard arms would be removing flex therefore removing traction
