set rear droop. lift rear of car by shock tower until one wheel just lifts from the surface. Measure the chassis' height at rear end. Difference between this height and ride height is droop. Turn in droop screws to lessen droop. Keep adjusting screws until both tires pick up exactly at the right chassis height (in this case, 5.5mm).

set front droop. same procedure. lift on front shock tower, watch or feel for one tire lifting off surface, then measure chassis height (just behind front arms). Again, adjust screws so both tires lift at 5.5mm.
This is a way I adjust the cars tweak by lifting the front and rear and seeing if both tires lift up at the same time, though I adjust with the spring collar, should it be done this way or with downstop screws?

Default Setup

Have a question for the guys who run XRay cars. I have a T2.007 US version and I can NOT afford to buy the rubber tire chasise and top deck. Like to know if anyone has a rubber tire setup and recommendation for tires to use on the US car and how to set the car up to run rubber? At least for now til I can afford the chasise and top deck. It would be appreciated.

Update: i added a servo, motor and Rx to the chassis still need a Li-po pack and ESC. Without the battery&ESC I measure 5mm ride height in the rear and that is as LOW as it gets. Im stuck.
Did you use the proper lower shock ends? There are short and long ones in the kit. You should use the short ones. I believe the long ones are on the shock parts tree and the right (short) ones are separate.

The ones that come with the 007 are great, why do you want different ones?

Different shock ends huh? Well I will take a look inside my kit tonight to see if there are different lengths there and I will also post up my shock length tonight when I get home.

Please let me know what your total length is so I can compare!

B18C Turbo,
what was the heaviest total weight of the 007 with all the thing you tried to weigh it down?
A body weights about 100g and the legal weight for a race is 1525g

hotcar,
I have T2 with custom upper deck - which are like the US 007 bur with spider at the end of front one.
In your place I would only change the lower deck when you get some money for it. That way you have more options with front upper deck.

Oh and I also have a T2 '007 custom team pickles chassis 3.1mm super stiff that is a beautiful woven carbon fiber peice. It is an exact replica of the 2007 chassis and will be perfect for your T2 conversion!

what seen to be the issue ,,is the car pushing into the corner or just not enough
steering, if the car is pushing into the corner front suspention is to hard or not enough droop, if the car is going into the corners to hard and you are loosing time because not enough roll stiffen up the suspention a little bit by either changing the springs or moving the shock position on the shock tower

It seems to not be turning egnough if you put my son tc4 on same transmitter same settings and my xray and just turn a sharp circl his turns much more tighter. Mine darn near needs the entire with of the straight away to make a turn where his takes about 1/3 of it. I do not understand why it would not have a tighter turn radius. I think this is whats killing me in the corners that are tighter cause even if I am going really slow in the turns it seems I do not have egnough steering. I am talking just practicing running the course less than half throttle it seem It cannot make sharp turns. Now if i go really fast in a sharp turn I can slide the back end and clear the turn but doing that everytime is a bit difficult for my drive style

gunlocators,

Does your steering blocks turn either way (L or R) enough to touch the caster blocks?
