C_O_jones is correct, but it should also be noted that these springs are more progressive than the XRAY blue-green and light-blue springs of the same lb. rating (that is, they feel stiffer as you compress them).

Ran some carpet with foams last week, car was awesome, but has a very small amount of push when cornering when using neutral power which i could do to dial out and was wanting to rotate a little too much in the really tight corners...

Was thinking i could add a little rear toe to cure that, but wasnt sure about the first. Ive got the small black shim and the 1 degree in blocks at the moment, so thats 1.5 or 2.0 degrees in off the top of my head?

Doseck said something about the new parts are upgrades. Not a new car. Also he was running a non flex chassis from Xray. It was 3mm with pocketed locations.

If there was an upgrade kit the following items would be in it:

topdeck ~$40
chassis ~$80
front bulkheads ~$35
rear bulkheads ~$35
rear upperdeck ~$15
front shock tower ~$20
rear shock tower ~$20

~$245 - 20% kit discount = ~$196

This is all guesstimation I don't really know yet

Talking I hope they would make a conversion...

I know Xray won't make one, but it's about time they start.

I can't imagine the upper deck being as low as the battery brace. Xray must be getting rid of the long bulkheads. I hope they keep the rear cf brace separate. Battery side would have to be shorter, otherwise it won't work. I hope they flip the motor and battery so the lipos will be more balanced. The electronics are much heavier.

It's going to be great to see what improvements X-ray has made on a already near perfect TC. I hope they get rid of the plastic blades and make the plastic diffs the same. Then all I need are some aluminum shock bodies with aluminum screw caps for the o-rings. I guess I'll have to wait on my tweak plate. I'm sure it will be great....lol
