I got the red countersunk ones and some ti screws so the weight wouldn't be effected for the top deck, besides it helps keep tweak down....and with all the rails I hit I need the help.

Default Stock Set-ups

Does anyone know where I can get some stock Team driver set-ups? All I seem to find is 19t and mod on the web site.
Seems like I always have too much traction and I am scrubbing too much speed in the corners.

On the xray sit ethere are stock setups. You can either try LilChamps setup which is Schrevs winning IIC setup, its one of the featured setups so simply scroll down to the bottom and its right there. Or you can do a search by track using Trackside and use some of the setups from the novak race in stock. Both would be good options and should give you 4-5 choices on things to try.

Kind of. The T2 aluminum bellcrank post is longer than the T2'007's...you'll have to remove the bellcrank parts from the 302504 "quicksaver" assembly and install them on the T2 bellcrank post.
A set of locking pliers helps make that job a little easier.

I'm looking for some suggestions. I have broken my car several times now by turning in too soon and taping the inside wall with the front wheel. I never actually hit very hard but the wheel must grab the wall. I end up with a broken wheel hub at the bottom, broken c hub at the top and a bent cvd. It wasn't till I got a T2 that I started breaking the front like this. With my tc4 I only broke rear hubs here and there. Now obviously I need to stop hitting the inside wall, but does anybody have any other suggestions for me? Got a pdub bumper but it happens when the wheel is turned so the bumper doesn't help at all. This is a real expensive crash as the cvd's aren't cheap. I've thought about getting aluminum parts but I am pretty sure they would just bend.

You can straighten out the CVD with two pliers and some force , no need to buy new one...

What happens if you drive with a slightly bent CVD?? What effect does it have on your car?

Yeah I know you can sometimes. They just never seem to get totally straight. The one today was a titanium racing cvd. REALLY bent. No straightening that thing.

Could it be that my car is set up so it has to turn too far and the angle makes it easy to break everything? I have the steering going to about 17 degrees with this setup.

it's almost time to go asphalt racing. I'll be practicing some mod set up's this Saturday (weather permitting) and then putting it down for the first points race on March 3rd. Looking forward to running this car on the black top after the killer performance on the rug with it.

This is a general Xray question not specific to the T'07

What is parts support like for older cars? When they put out a new one.. is the old one just gone?

Xray is the most supported in my area.. but most people are T'07 ... upgrade upgrade.. I am a budget racer.. so thought I would keep my eye out for a good deal on a used one T1 T2 FK0.. whatever.. but is there enough parts from Xray that my shop can bring them in?

The T2 and T2 007 have all plastic parts except the steering bellcrank in common. The arms are stiffer in the US kit for foam tire racing. The chassis while the flex points are slightly different, is completely interchangeable. The major difference comes in the bulkheads and top deck. So if you decide to pick up a T2 you will have plenty of parts availability.
