When I was running the Orion 3200 on my T2 '007, I stuck all but 35 grams on the outer rounded edge of the battery.
I hear you

Just install the bullet connectors right onto the speedo wires and plug them into the battery. But be careful not to put them in backwards!!
I just find out that it is HUDY:s weels in all pitcures

i have a 007 us carpet spec. i am trying to run rubber tires on carpet. the problem is when i set the car up to turn good it will roll over. my friend has a t2 and when i use the exact same set up as him it flips over. is my chassis just to stiff. i have tried every thing. any advice. maybe a good set up.

Yes, the Rubber Spec chassis are designed to flex a little more. You should try widening the suspension by using 3mm of shims under the arms front/rear.

On the US Carpet edition, you can still adjust the chassis flex... you can't go as soft as the EU Pavement edition, but it should help.

Have a look at the Instruction Manual and/or Setup Book (if you don't have one, it's published on the TeamXray.com site).

Try to put some super glue on the sides of the front tires. This prevents that the front wheels suddenly build up grip mid corner.

I have actually tried the 007 with various tire setups including foam, rubber, and plastic (for drifting). The rubber grips is so high that it would grip on the turns and flip the car onto the hood. I had to lay the shocks down (in towards the center on the top and out on the bottom), put in softer springs to allow some roll, installed silver sway bar in the front, set the end point adjustments lower on the radio, file the outside edges of the tires and really slow down in the tight turns and it would still flip sometimes. I don't think you can really ever get it not to flip over because there is so much traction roll.

Three the same replies is a lot. Message is clear.
But did you try the glue on the sides of the tires?
I almost always do that to prevent traction rolling.

Have you tried stiffer springs and thicker sway bars? I'm just a dumb GP guy but when my car traction rolls, I stiffen the suspension to take steering out. The car will flip easier if you allow the chassis to roll.

Just my opinion...

Default pinion / spur

Im confused................................not hard i know!

Looking through the on line xray set up's for 007 19t gearing it appears that people are using 48dp pinions with 64dp spurs, for example 24pinion 116 spur.

Is this correct and if so what are the advantages of this?
Cheers in advance
