Your ball will work but I'd go ahead and get a Multi-Diff because a spool is the best choice (most of the time) on asphalt. It will allow you to brake later in the corner adding corner speed and steering. Also, an array of springs is a good idea for tuning - my advice is to see what the fast guys are running and go with that.

The instructions for building the diff fuckin suck.

and the part bags are labled poorly.

Are the images of the screws, clips etc drawn to exact size?

It's a composite diff...its not THAT bad, all you need is a description. What are you guys having problems with? The exploded view shows how it's done in the supplimental instructions.

The screws are basically to size from what I remember.

Has anyone tested the car on capret with foams?
The car would have a crazy amount of grip with foams, I think it's it will have too much flex to be useful with foams unless your running on a real slick track .. it will make it harder to tune the car I bet.

It was actually easy. (after we read the supplimental instructions)
Hardest part was getting the little nut set into its place.

But they don't feel perfectly smooth so they will have to be rebuilt.

might have gotten a fibre from the towel in there...

The one-way and full shocks are not interchangeable. The rear diff is though. Take a look at the XRAY T1 & T2 Parts Cross Reference Table for more questions concerning compatibility.

T2 last years model, still top of the line though.

T2 007 this years model. New top of the line car for next year. Geared for carpet mainly with dual diffs lowered bulkheads and a newer 3.5mm chassis. The asphalt version consist of a 2.5mm chassis, multi-diff and lowered bulkheads still. Check out http://www.teamxray.com for the preview they have it. Also check out the T2, T2r, and 007 thread all found on the front page. It will replace the "orginal" T2 soon

The T2r is still the same car as the T2. You just get FRP chassis, upperdeck and rear deck and shock towers. You also get composite diffs and plastic wheel hexes. The T2 would get a full graphite chassis with shock towers and a lightweight diff and alum. wheel hexes. That's about the differences right there. That right there brings the price down. You don't get the plastic wheel dishes either. You do get a full color manuel, setup guide and stuff like that. The set up guide is worth while as it breaks everything down in simple terms to get the full potential out of the car.

On all of the cars the suspension is still the same, same shocks, belts, shock towers ect....

There you go
