What is the advantage to running the T2 chassis vs. the 007? Congrats on the great driving at the Nats, I got down to watch some qualifiying, but thanks to the LiveRC feed, I was able to watch some of the mains, our NW drivers made quite a showing.

When you have the US 007 with the thick chassis, the advantage to running the T2 chassis instead of the EU, is a savings of over $200 for the EU conversion kit.
Just change over to the hard, std T2 susp arms, unless you have stupid high traction and then go with the US 007 Xtra hard arms.

While the chassis has the same mounting holes, you'll notice that the flex points are different. The "ears" on the front and rear of the chassis are in a different location when comparing the T2 to the 007.

I think Barry was using a T2 chassis, at least on thurs or fri.

Barry OWNED Mod the whole weekend, never seen him smile that much.

Oh, and it was really easy to know when he was running, nothing sounds like a brushed mod motor, when the BL guys were up, you couldn't tell the diff between them and stock, NO noise=No excitment.

Why do you want aluminum shocks? If you do change keep in mind that the upspring on an aluminum shock is different, there are some other differences but I am too tired to remember

No factory guys I have ever seen run aluminum shocks.

But I do see other aluminum goodies on their cars. Which means to me the regular plastic shocks work just fine, and there is no reasonable advantage to running aluminum shocks.

If you want to spend money on that kind of stuff, get the aluminum rear hubs (first choice) then aluminum steering knuckles (second choice)

But I am pretty sure, (if you are just going for bling bling) that Xray makes aluminum shocks as an option part.

Correct. They found out that the composite variant has a better heat beheaviour.

That's not correct. The ALU shocks are discontinued.

At this moment I use the ALU Serpent shocks and thay are awesome in maintenance, filling & bleeding and have a very constant rebound.

But the standard Xray shocks are fine

XRAY discontinued them, but you can still get the aluminium shock bodies from Serpent.

Hey guys, just a quick question on setup for the '007 - i run on a pretty tight track with low grip, very smooth but low grip especially at night (outdoors).

What setup do you guys recommend. I am running LRP Brushless 5.5 with a rollout of 10.2..

What I am finding is that the car tends to dive mid corner and hook resulting in it spinning mid corner. I would prefer it push slightly rather than oversteer. it pushes entering the corner but the mid corner hook is a bit of a killer. I am not running a sway bar either end, I am sure I should be doing this but dont have them yet.

Would you guys have a setup for similar conditions?

I just picked up a second hand T2 007 US Edition. Has anyone had success running it on rubber tires? If so, what did u do to make it work?

My local tracks are indoor carpet (on rubbers) and outdoor asphalt. I want to try and make this thing work without having to buy much else. Thx

Sticky, I answered you on xray's forum.

autoset, I recommend this one:
http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...6&setup=t2_007
I don't have the same conditions as you, but it works awesome for me. I've done a few slight modifications to that setup, but start with that one.

Anyone know if any companies make an aftermarket 5 cell carpet (3.5mm) chassis for the T2'007?
