I hate to tell you but you have no leg to stand on, you are spitting out some crap you swallowed. I'm a huge Xray fan and owner of a T2, but sorry to say the multi-flex technology wasn't the best thing since sliced bread like Xray hoped. Want to know why? How about shortly after they released the T2 they shipped all their factory drivers chassises in different thickness with no flex cuts. Hmmm... me thinks it wasn't the best idea afterall. How about all the companies like BMI and Pickles selling aftermarket chassises for the T2 with no flex cuts. Cause they work well, if not better then the factory chassis.

Sorry kid, nice try.

Preach on brother Soviet!

I do disagree about the battery strap. It's a COMPLETELY CRITICAL piece of equipment. If it's not made of carbon fiber, aluminum and/or platinum then buy another car. We cannot tolerate second rate materials as something as important as a battery strap!

Everyone knows the battery strap is the lifeblood of any car.

I hear a bunch of talk about the T2 tweeking and the multi flex sucks. I am one that has never had my T2 tweek. And the multi flex does work. I used it over the weekend. Running rubber tire asphalt. My car had a little to much grip with the soft setting. Added the 4 screws to the top deck and the grip went away enough that my lap time dropped.

Don't take this the wrong way guys but maybe your not using the chassis flex the way it was intended.

I do think for carpet the BMI 3.0mm chassis or similar is better on carpet.

The facts speak. The multiflex works for most conditions. Xray never claimed for all conditions. Sorry for the neg post, but I'm just tried of how AE treats their customers and their products are on the low par. Have fun with whatever you get lumberjak.

I think the multi flex was intended more for rubber tire. Since most of Xray's customers run rubber tires.

Then why did Xray ship all ball diffs to the US. I know because most Xray owners in the US run on carpet. The UK got multi-diffs, because they run mostly on asphalt.

heh its funny, but the point he was making is true. Every part on an Xray seems to have been well thought out and designed instead of being an after-thought.

Yes, exactly. Parts quality has not been comprimised over the years it's definitely the only viable choice for most people when it comes to on-road racing.

In a totally unrelated note, The Da Vinci Code SUCKED.

Obviously you're post was sarcastic, I just backed up that the poster was right.
It looked like everybody was missing the point in what he said.

If you guys like the T2 so much why even waste time bashing AE.
Let me see AE has a history of taking longer in developing thier cars which meens they put more thought into. Also if you look at the company as a whole they don't outdate thier own cars.
