Default brushless gearing

I just got a Novak GTB and 13.5 for my T2 007. With the 116 tooth spur and 33 pinion there isn't much room to go bigger. What size spur are most people running with the brushless? I run rubber on carpet. Thanks.

I'm running an 81 tooth spur and a 25 pinion with a 36 rollout and it goes well.
We have a tight track with a few straights.

Default Why Xray T2 007

What makes the Xray T2 007 the right choice for a novice touring car driver? I have no idea why it would be or not be a better choice that the compitition (Schumacher Mi3, Corally phi, Losi JRXS type R, others) ?


Thanks for the help.

The support available on the Xray forum can be of great benefit to any level of racer.

The car comes with a great set up book. Perfect for a novice. Also has a great instruction book to put the car together.

Thanks for the help.

Well they should only be your #1 choise if your local hobby shop can get the car and the parts to support you while u race....

Assuming all the cars are supported at your shop. The thing that makes xray better then the rest is in the details... best parts quality,instruction manuals and support documents. Great web site... Car just looks so damn good... All the cars can win the local club scene and the top pro ranks... So lets not say its the fastest car out there.Fact is at this time, the battery down the right side is the hot chassis layout, and when compared to tamiya,corally,shumaker,yokomo,hotbodies ect ect it comes down to parts support,company support,ease of maint,tuning options that are usable(rdx had lots of holes in there towers many where un-usable why have them???), parts quality, hands down the drive train in an xray is amazing and has long lifespan between rebuilds. Hudy spring steel is amazing...

Thanks for the help.
Lagace pretty much gave you all the answers you need.

-Heavy duty construction.
-Ease of maintenance.
-Customer support(forums)
-You can build and throw it down on the track and run it as is; or get so involved with tuning by itself.
-This platform was developed using top level driver's inputs on national level tracks.


Buy a used one so it wouldn't hurt your budget so much...I have one for sale. PM me...

Well said......., thanks for the help. One shop in my area does have alot of parts. The only thing the shop owner said negative about X-Ray was, that some times getting parts from his supplier quickly is difficult. Thats why he stock so many.

Many local drivers do have their cars. So that would certainly help with my learning curve.

I just got done assembling my Xray T2 007, and can say that this is the best engineered car I have ever put together. All the fits and tolerances are perfect!! Its a thing of beauty! Hell I am scared to toss it on the track because I am not worthy of driving something so sweet!

Buy one!

Bob you going to be running at His-Hers?

Mike, you race at His N Her's, and you're a mech E? I'm almost done with my sophomore year for ME at U of Illiniois Champaign.

And yes, it is a great car.

News from teamxray.com:

New T2 007 Upper Deck Graphite - Narrow



No spots for standoff posts.

This complicates my decision on what to do for ashphalt season (if it ever arrives... still barely breaking freezing). Buy a 007EU for two classes and use the USs as parts cars? Sell one US and get a new EU, or a used EU? Conversion kit? Just run the USs? New topdeck?

I remember on the original T2, the thrust bearings in the diffs were faulty and it was prone to tweaking and the rear shock towers were breaking in hard crashes..

Does anybody know if there is anything to watch out for or change on the new 007..Any help would be appreciated..
