im using kit silver springs front and back( as i got 2 pairs of silver springs with my car) i run lrp asphalt on the tires and put the warmers on at 30 degrees 15 minutes before my race. im running rp 24s when cold and rp30s when a little hotter or when my car has to much grip. The track temp is about...scotland so 10 - 15 degrees and im running the asphalt setup

I would try some softer springs in the rear, 14lbs work good, that will help the weight of the car shift to the rear while on power (on the throttle), other than that you may want to try some Paragon FX II on the tires, and the Multi Diff up front will help make the car easier to drive, especially on asphault

Check your springs closely the golds do appear very close in colour to the silvers.

Wow really no Paragon, even outdoors, that sucks. Have tried just heating the tires up and no additive, some tires respond well to that. What, your front end rattled apart . Are you talkin about chatter, or actually came apart? If it came apart that is strange, I would think that is a loose screw problem not the spool. Do you threadlock all the screws that go into metal? If it is chatter you are talking about on the last couple of pages there is great input on how to reduce chatter, just go back 2 or 3 pages. Make sure that you threadlock screws that hold the geat on the multidiff, use good oil on the outdrive shafts (the rod that goes in the diff, not where the blades go), make sure the locking pin is in it (otherwise its a oneway), and make sure the outdrive cups are at different angles (in the instruction manual they are at the same, having them at different angles should reduce chatter).

na there deffinately two sets of silvers iv had someone else check them aswell incase im going colour blind. Apart as in the pin in the cv joint keeps popping out and its not for the grub screw being slack because it was threadlocked in. Its strange tho cuz i never had this problem with my t2 and i ran an 8x1 in that with front spool and no probs, mayb i just got a funny pin ill try swapping the front driveshafts with the back ones.

I won't spend $400 on a TC anymore. It seems Xray has knocked out the budget minded customer. All I can do is hope for a 007R.

XRay isn't the only company out there with a Chassis Kit that has a MSRP of $389, what about HB, Losi, Kyosho, Yokomo, and so on. And some of those Manuf kits are more expensive than XRay's. You get what you pay for, if you want a highend kit, it will come with a highend pricetag, simple as that. Xray will be making the T2R again, but I can understand why they stopped for a while. Why have some of your machines pumping out a lower priced tub chassis, when you can have the same machines putting out a higherend CF chassis that is outselling everything, so much so you cant keep up with demand. If you are on a tight budget look at a used car and take your chances or a Cyclone S, TC5, or Losi XXX-S

Hi!
My '007 carpet spec is way too loose in the rear according to some locals. Its a bone stock setup straight from the book. Should I do something with the rear springs? Right now they are the white ones and im running foams on a 75'x50' carpet track.

it feels fine for me but two other guys said it was way too loose for them to drive it properly and they are way better than I am. Help?

If you are happy with the setup don't change it, you have to drive the car not these other guys. Not everyone likes a car to handle the same way, if you like it loose, run it
