Smile My I-Series MR-02 Conversion.

I thought I'd post the process in converting my I-Series to the MR-02 chassis. When I saw the PN MR-02/MR-015 Front Tower Bar Conversion Set I knew I wanted to try this for myself so here's how it went.

I prepared the MR-02 chassis by snipping off the king pin holders with a pair of diagonal cutters then, after protecting parts of the chassis that might be damaged with duct tape, I filed the remaining portion of the king pin brackets flush with the chassis.





I pulled the I-Series PCB & servo from the original chassis and installed it in the MR-02 chassis.





Time to start installing the PN parts to continue the conversion.





A shot of the Front Tower Bar Conversion Set installed.



I started with a 9 tooth pinion, this pic shows that there's a lot of clearance left between the T-post and the motor for installing larger pinion gears.



A few pics of the completed chassis.









Finally the chassis with the #29 body.







I haven't had too much time to run it yet, but what little I have it seems very smooth and stable. Hopefully I'll have time to really give it a good hard run soon.
