I have an original Xray T2. I want to run a Spec 17.5 class (no timing/boost).
The car is in good shape, but upon setting it up i notice how very unbalanced it was with a lipo. I have to add tons of weight. Also the bulkheads will only allow thinner orion lipos (bulkheads are dremmeled).
I know I can buy a brass weight ($50) that fits in the slots, but worry about battery fit and putting another $50 in an outdated car.
Talk me out of buying a new T/C?
I always see used Touring cars selling around $200 and I can get a new car for around $300+. (TC5R new for $260 at tower with coupons)
