hey guys,

i just finished my T2 chassis kit and wanted to see what you guys think.the chassis is 3mm top deck,chassis and shock towers and the chassis is milled down to 2.5mm under the bulkheads,standoffs and droop screws.all the screws are flatheads for the topdeck chassis and towers.i added another set of standoff mounting holes a little further outboard so you have the option of stock or wider bracing for more leverage.the car is extremely rigid.it does not flex at all.let me know what you think.thanks for looking.

Your 04 Diffs and spool will be usable in your T2, but you will need 34t pulleys due to the T2's internal ratio of 1.70 as opposed to the 04's ratio of 1.77.

Your one-way isn't usable as-is, as the diffs are flipped 180* from their installation direction for the 04. This doesn't effect a diff or a spool, but for a one-way the one way bearing will be installed backwards relative to how it needs to be in order to function properly on the FK05 or T2.

I used my 04 one way in my T2.
I had to mount the pulley on the other side of the mounts and use 1mm shims between the pulley and the holes. It works just fine. But it was a little tricky to get the shims to stay on the screws while assembling.

hey guys,

the chassis is going to be available in standard black and satin black carbon fiber.it is made from high quality quasi isotropic carbon fiber.i will be making a 2mm version very soon.i will be going into full production after i get everything proven out.i just cut the chassis kit today and need to fully check everything 100 %.i should have them available in about 2 weeks or so.the cost is going to be $129.99 for the chassis,top decks(front and rear),and shock towers.i origionally wanted to have a lower price but i rally wanted to pocket the chassis under the bulkheads and make it right.i hope you guys dont mind.
