i dont know about roll out since i dont run brushless, but really rollout depends on the track, but with the given info i bet some one could give you a good ball park.

as for oneway vs spool. its really on personal preference. i run a oneway when i run 19t because i like the feel a bit more. so really, you should do a run with your oneway still in there and see if you like it. and then try switching to the locked oneway and then to the spool. by running all three back to back (while maintaining the same setup and saucing) you will see how each of them feels. and what ever you liked the most/lap time is what you should run and then make the few little changes you might need to setup. really i have found that with 19t you really are never going quite fast enough to have to run a spool for brakes. even hara has run a oneway while running mod because that track didnt demand brakes. play with them all and run what you like.

Default ANY IDEA

I run a T2'007 EU spec and am having a lot of trouble is the rear sliding about out of the corner when getting on the power. Has anyone had this trouble and know how it is fixed, I like the car but is getting to the point where i will be looking to whats on the market as it is a pain to set up for changing conditions and such.

what track surface?

have you checked your tweak/droop?

are you running sways? what is your oil/springs in the rear? roll center?

what motor class? what tires?

Without knowing what your current setup is like or your exact track conditions a couple things that could help stabilize your car on power:

- Move the rear arms forward to get more forward dogbone sweep in the rear dogbones

- Stand your rear shocks up a hole

I have a couple setups listed on the Xray Website that seem to be pretty good at most of the tracks I frequent... this one should work ok.

Sorry forgot to add this info.

Run on Carpet with rubber tires pj30's 27turn motor

There is no tweak droop is 5 and 6

roll center hole 3 all round

30w oil

yellow rear springs

have taken the sways out as it reduced the sliding.

I used hole 3 on the front and hole 1 on the rear roll center the other night and this improved it a lot but is not the answer as they should be the same all over.

running a stock motor on power slidding shouldnt be there to much. like steve said stand up the rear shocks a hole. try 2mm droop over ride height all the way around.

the roll centers are rarely the same front to rear. i have never had a setup where they were the same on any of my cars.
you could maybe try adding rear tow/arm sweet as well. but i dont suggest going over 3degrees.

Steve,

Just a quick question what setting do you run on the droop on that setup,

25mm on the front

24.5mm on the rear

What would that read on a hudy gauge

To set your droop first set your ride height

Say 5mm front 5.5mm rear

No adjust droop screws to allow the chassis to lift from ride height to where the wheels just leave the ground. This is your uptravel or droop. If you wanted 2mm uptravel all around you would messure:

7mm front and 7.5mm rear when fully extending the shocks just before the wheels leave the ground. ITs the easiest way to measure and compare to all makes of cars.

Fellow carpet racers, this year I've been running much bigger tires. Last year I ran smalls on the old small wheels (56-53mm), and this year I'm running 60-57mm (so far) Prizms.

Has anyone else gone to higher roll center lower hinge pin holders to compensate for this year's bigger (on average) tires?

I just tore down my '007 and found ALOT of bad bearings.

Is there a bearing kit that I can buy to do the whole car? Which bearings would you guys recommend?

Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks..

I like to run mine as loose as possible before they skip. Second last notch front and rear. If you run mod foam used the 3rd last notch f/r.
