Mmmm, could be, but with the RR mounts and no front bumper, the plastic mounts are a little more vulnerable than the conventional front end. The body feels a little more solid and stable on the front because the mounts don't flex as much. Whether that effects handling or not is debateable.

I got mine from HK, but it is also available in Oz as well. I imagine it will hit the US pretty soon.

Default Bumper solution

In an attempt to convert the front body mount from R spec to RR spec, I would like to use the Integy front plate shown below. The stock parts tree is a month out from Tower and not in any of my lhs.

Question is; the Integy plate apears to be flat with no provision for the 45' transition to bolt to the front bulkhead. From pictures I've seen, the stock RR mount is a one piece deal that bolts to bulhead then angles down. I can't figuer how the Integy piece is supposed to attach to the bulkhead. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
I believe that this piece simply replaces the stock brace that is on top of the regular foam bumper. Anyways if a stiff bumper solution is what you are gunning for then you may want to try my fix for it.

I took a the Wide bumper from a Yokomo GT4R and matched it up with the stock lower bumper mount from my V One RR. There aer a pair of holes that just about match up on the two pieces. Reamed inward about 1mm on each hole and it fit perfectly. As for the center I placed glue to reinforce the middle. The material that Yokomo uses for that bumper is VERY rigid and will not sag, ot at least it has not so far. The only concern that I have now is that with the bumper so stiff now, will I bend my chassis that much easier. That remains to be seen.

Default Question

I know that was posted a while ago and I can not seem to find it in any of the threads. What are the Yokomo Belts that can be used for the 24T conversion? I know that you need the side and rear belts changed. Any help would be appreciated since I have my 24T(s) on the way.

Hehehehe I am only looking for educated guesses anyways

The figures I was given were:

Purple = 30-35
Pink = 25-30

Again these are just guess numbers (not by me?!) but they sure do feel very soft with the "squeeze test".
