Werd. You need a tool like the MIP tweak station or 4 scales to check the corner weight (known as tweak).

If you check the corner weight and your left and right droop screws are slightly different or your surface isn't level your adjustments will be off.

The above method should be used only to check chassis up travel.

Guys
I'm about to buy my first Xray and Belt driven car.

I have a couple of quick questions about the US edition 007.

Firstly largest 48dp Spur that will fit, I have heard an 87 but am not too sure.
Secondly what size hex wrenches would I need, I'm thinking 1.5, 2, 2.5mm
Thirdly spares or optional parts, here is what I have come up with so far:
Battery brace
Shock ends
Rear hubs
Rear shock tower
6 deg castor
Front Hubs
Drive shaft caps (Have not found a part number, if you could help me out that would be great)

Anything else I should know before purchasing the kit?
Thanks

87 is the largest, but if you run outdoor it might be risky.
1.5, 2, 2.5 are the tools you need

Battery brace you don;t really need one
Shock ends only for backup reasons
Rear hubs only for backup reasons
Rear shock tower only for backup reasons
6 deg castor
Front Hubs only for backup reasons
Drive shaft caps 305240 definately need some but fortunately they are stronger now. I used to change them every 3 batteries now it's every 15

87 is the largest, you might be able to use 90 if you run indoor
1.5, 2, 2.5 are the tools you need

Guys,

will the T2's normal bearing size fit in the aluminum steering blocks or am I obliged to use the ones that come with the aluminum blocks only?

The T2 uses 5X10 bearings all around. The aluminum X-ray hubs use 5X9 bearings which are the same hub bearings the Tamiya 415 MS uses.

I like to keep C hubs, steering hubs, front arms, rear hubs, steering bushings, ball joints, unidirectional ball joints, lower suspension holders, shock ends, and shock bodies on hand. In about that order of importance too.

Plenty of screws especially 16 and 18 mm button heads and replacement belts are nice. Skip the rear shock tower.

Sway bars seem more common on rubber tire setups so if that's what you run they're a nice tuning option. Sway bars don't do you much good if you don't have spares to fix your car though.
