I havent seen the team tamale one, I will check it out, I am not in any hurry, just getting into Electric and I will start running Silver Can (no cooling needed) and yes Anthony I know its like putting a honda motor in a ferrari , but it is a good place to start. Also whats the big deal about these BMI chassis?

Yeah, I run the CoolCanFan system for my 007. Works very well. I made one adjustment to it. I flipped the fan over the kan around so it now draws air off the kan rather then blow. The other fan blows air onto the end-bell.

What would be the significant difference on driving between T2 and T2'007? I think the rear of T2'007 got more traction, am I right?

(Edit add) Also, with bone stock car, which one is lighter?

Which one are you driving?
I'm driving a T2 but we are dialing the rear grip into it.
I'd love to hear some tech tips on rear grip as you probably had or still have one.

I'm doing Tamiya TA05 and Xray T1FK04 right now. I'm evaluating T2 as T1 parts are getting hard to get at LHS now.

You can try longer rear camber links for better rear grip

On carpet Alumn rear hubs and front steering knuckles. The rear hubs free the car up a little bit. The front knuckles are for durability. Other than that you need nothing.
