In regards to the Reedy Race, I'd suggest sending an email to RC America, a PM to rmargiotta (he works for RC America), or post a message in the Ask Mike Blackstock thread. They should be able to help.

thanks budd also, do you still race at Debbies, all the fast guys seem to be running 19

steering knucles and the castor block sad to say are a package deal" you break one the other goes with", I'm running aluminum steering knuckles and rear hubs, the rear shock tower in the area of the roll-center adjustment will give out on a very bad crash but being the greatest unsigned hype that want be a problem for you

I think I read in this thread that the roll center area break issue has been addressed on the new series of shock towers (and cars of course) - I may be wrong

Is it just me or does the T2 seem to develop a great deal of "play" in all of the ti-rod linkages? Does anybody have any suggestions to minimize this issue?

I commented on that a few weeks ago but didn't get a good response from anyone. Either ballends are to big or the ballstuds are too small. There's a lot of play between them

In my opinon is this not an issue. I got it too. The play is settled to one side when you're driving.

I just noticed the slop in my car last night. They were tight when I built the car so I'll assume that new rod ends will fix it. I still have less slop than what is typical with ball cups.

Just put a shock o-ring behind each ball end. If you're worried that they are binding the suspension, take the shock off and you'll see that it's still just as free as it was before. I like to replace the o-rings in my shocks at least every other month or two, so unless your o-rings get torn, use the ones you take off. It's cheaper that way....

I have to slow down signifcantly so that the car will maintain the line...if I give it any throttle at that point it will continue to push out. So basically I lose a lot of momentum on low speed turns. I was wondering if switching to a spool will make alot of difference. Some swear by it.

a spool is the hot ticket on asphalt.you will get a ton of on power steering with it.it loses the turn in that a oneway has but you can be alot more aggressive with a spool.you just need to get your turn in through your set up.9 out of 10 times a spool is the best for asphalt racing.

When you snap on the ball cups, use plastic parts bags over the ball stud, then pop the the ball cup on. Remove excess bag. All the slop should be gone.
