So, I would like to have the receiver in the horzontal position to allow the wiring inside the box to connect top down.

I need two please for a standard C02
Ok, I will get started on them after I received the prototypes. When I've received the proto versions I can decide which changes I need to make and what will be the minimal wall thickness.

I've tested such a rear upper link last year and didn't like it. It gives the car more rear traction but it also slows down the car's reaction.
Personally I prefer the wishbone type upper link.

It's not the same, the NT1's is longer and a different design.

some feedback please.
Haven't tried it yet but I doubt whether it makes a noticeable difference. It should make the flex a bit more symmetrical but since the motor mounting points are still offset I don't think it will make a difference.
However when it's time to replace a chassis I would replace it with the optional one.

Default Diff gears and diff pins??

Fellas quick question, Can u use the metal gears inside the Kevlar diffs (rear). Also if u can use the metal gears, can u use the lightweight pins that came with the Kevlar diffs in the WC kit??

Default X-RAY SERVO SAVER???

Fellas have any of you used or witnessed someone using a complete X-ray steering servo saver in a lab co2? I asked cause that part is cheaper n much easier to get than the cap part..........


Also on the ankerman positions, (10,11,12,13) can someone explain how Capricorn just change the distance of the holes, But X-ray pills seem to move the holes forward and back. Are they achieving the samething but in a different way??

Nope, had the idea when I bought a Tamiya M05 last year and saw the small shocks those use. Kind a sucks Xray beat me to it with the T4.
Since the idea of low towers and short shocks on a IC car is out in the open now (NT1'13) I figured I post the ones I made.

Yes, not a issue.
But the question is why would you want that?

I've seen some use the NT1 servosaver in the C01/C02 so it should fit without an issue.

Both methods have the same effect, personally I think moving the holes further or closer apart is the better method since it keeps the steering more linear throughout the different positions.

I asked only cause I broke the plastic gears in the wc rear diff in only 2races! I thought maybe the oil was low, but after inspection I think i destroyed the gears from a hard impact to the side of the right rear tire so I'll sacrifice a little weight for a little strength

Xray didn't beat you to it they "borrowed" the idea from the BD7 on their T4
