i have shimmed my upper deck up 2mm, all i did was buy the 009 servo saver. That servo saver is a little longer than the 007 and has worked like a charm. battery is inside the chassis, and i am using 5000mah.

good luck

Default Spares to have on hand?

I have been running a Tamiya TT01 in a spec class and know all the parts that are likely to break .

I am moving on to a used T2'007 and would like to have a few of the parts that can break in my parts box in case the LHS is out of stock [they keep a good supply of parts but I always seem to need something they don't have]

Can anyone suggest some parts to stock up on?

I(knock on wood) have only broke a camber link eyelet, but I have spare caster blocks, front and rear arms and c hubs and steering blocks. Cars are pretty tough as far as I am concerned.

Well, I hope my Xray will hold up that well to the abuse it is about to get at my hands. I did most of my RC 20-some years ago running pan car oval on carpet. All this turn right/turn left & TC stuff is a steep learning curve . I'll look into picking up that list of parts, just in case. I think I set a record in breaking steering blocks on the TT01

Thanks for the info.

I had a 007 as a basher. Its alot tougher than a tamiya, & was cheaper than a TT01
Only breakages I had were belts & damaged pulley, mainly from small stones.
Get some spare plastic c-clips that go onto the driveshaft, check them often. They wear out.
Spare belts & pulley's
Spare screws
Spare body posts

Good to hear this. The TT01 is surprisingly tough but has the weakest steering knuckles known to humankind

I got some spare belts with the car but little else. I'll merge your suggestion with Smokefan's list and go shopping.

thanks for the input.

You'll like the X-Ray, I went from a TC3 to a T2007 night and day difference. the X-Ray is easy to drive fast. I plan on picking up a newer X-Ray this summer

Mine is in the mail from Exotek as we speak.

My car has a pretty rough chassis plate and I decided to replace it as soon as I heard about the Lipo chassis. It wasn't available when I tried to buy it so I put my name on the notification list. As soon as I got the email that they were in stock, I ordered mine.

Happy New Year to one and all

ok so heres the word on my XR07 exotek chassis conversion "IT ROCKS!!!" this chassis really makes my 007 shine! after my first race with it I have found a pretty descent setup,I noticed that this chassis gives alot of extra raw traction so I had to change up my springs to 1 step higher,and also noticed it really makes the front dig,or stop as some call it, when coming into a corner so I did some camber link adjustment,but overall I raised my best track laps by 1 full lap,so id say it was worth it!!
