What exactly does the conversion kit do to the car to improve it?

I just installed the new steering block, there is 2 ackerman position as MRX5, the servo travel distance less than before to reach the same turn angle.

I didn't buy the rest because the suspension mount in graphite doesn't help much I think, it just a fancy stuff.

I cut the radio plate myself too, and using Aplus clutch.

We run a little softer 32 fronts 35 rears ... But we have 2 of the most "tennis court" smooth 1/8th scale tracks in the country !

(One of them is hosting the 2012 Onroad Nationals)

I run KO 2.4... you dont have a lot of room in the receiver box so it has to be small. You can run lipo, some people do.

We try to get the car as light as possible and then put all the weight in the bottom of the car to improve handling. Using a NiCad pak puts that weight in the bottom of the car... (you still may have to add more)

Car looks good !

That's y I just bought the complete upgrade kit for the rest improvement. I've found:

- narrower upper front arm
- narrower lower front arm
- so the king pin clearance wider, the steering block won't hit the lower arm and create wider steering angle
- the clutch is very light weight, the incline angle of the bell now is same as Mugen/ Serpent, I think the clutch is more powerful then before.

Just test the 2012 today, although still break-in new engine, i can feel the dfference between 2011. Very response on chicane and stable.
L and R are perfect balance.

More than 3 mm shorter on front, same length on rear but the shock mount going higher to reduce shock travel

Hi,

Will be buying the 2012 upgrade. Does anyone know if the new clutch works? Or is it as bad as the first? Had big problems with it not engaging and the clutch spring self tightening half way through a heat?
