can anyone tell me if there is a way to tell if my car is running 2mm offset or 0mm in the rear
As i can't tell just by measuring it due to being able to change pivot ball lengths.

the 2mm offset wheels have a lip, it is noticeable if you are running kyosho or Twister/ATS tires. Compare with your front tires, you will see an obvious difference

If you are running Jaco prisms, or many others you are running 0mm already.

The dogbones are different too, the normal one has a ridge around it that is maybe 3mm wide in the middle. the other bone is just longer in general but the ridged bone will not fit if the pivot balls are out far enough and the flat bone won't fit if they are in for 2mm.

Or a way to get some of these screws seperatly. Sorry for bad english. Thanks in advance!
rcscrewz has a really nice set, but you should also look to 3racing or one of the asian shops for a titanium kit as well. I would get the steel screws first, and then the titanium's because you can only use them in about half of the car.

Thank you guys for your answers. rcscrewz seems to be a good solution to my problem. As for 3racing i'm not a big fan so that will be my last choice. I was wondering if i could find the kyosho's screws. For example when you break a part and replace it with a new one and you might need some extra screws so why not the whole kit! But if that's not possible i'll stick to your answers.
Thanks again!

Default front diff

Just read in a previous post that you need the (19) diff joint not the (12) diff joint. Is this true? What else do you need to convert to front diff. Do you use the pully off the one way?

Thanks

Yes, same pully.

I bought this screw set http://cgi.ebay.com/KYOSHO-V-ONE-RRR...item414b1ecc77

But I needed a few additional screws for the Evo 2.

Yes, i had to buy the longer diff joints for the front diff, (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=263602_263622) I haven't seen a pully specifically for the one way. I used the pulley in this package http://www.google.com/products?q=vz2...N&hl=en&tab=wf same one that is on the oneway as the diff.

You use the same front pulley on the diff as well as the one-way. If you are actually removing it from a one-way, be sure to pull off the plastic ring you glued on. If you don't remove the plastic ring, the pulley will be too wide and not fit between the bulkheads.
