Still easy to get parts. Most of the necessary parts are the same as the current car. You can use all of the same hubs, arms, etc...

I love my '07. It was my 1st xray. Went from breaking an AE car every week to not breaking anything since. I plan to run it in USVTA this summer on asphalt. Parts as said are mostly the same as the next generation's.

The steering knuckle are the exact same. The rear hubs and most other parts will fit with some minor work to them but they do have differences. If you break say a rear hub or an arm you'd have to replace both sides because of the minor differences. Also the diff caps/bulkheads where the shock tower on the 07' is taller than that of the 09'. So you'd have to replace both caps. The 07' has shorter belts too. Things like that and more are the differences.

Default Free car!

If anyone is running a T2-007 I have a Exotek chassis with the ball diff in the back and a Spek R gear diff in the front, IT IS NOT A COMPLETE ROLLER but can be used for parts and was only used on carpet. $50 shipped PM ME.

These have a great track record. I just picked up a used one and just finished reading the thread. I'll be using mine for Nastruck with a 21.5 in blinky mode. A number of other racers at my club use these too. Several in VTA.

I got some good info in this thread. It was MIA all of 2013!

I'm thinking of modding my chassis to have clearance for the Spec-R gear diffs in this car by cutting out the area under the diffs like the T3. They are 38T and should make my internal ratio the same as the T3 or T4. I would then need to use the same belts as the T3 front and back to make it work as the center hub is 22T on either model. Am I correct in thinking this?

I hope someone is still out there... If not, I may need to start a new thread.

I did this mod on my 07 as well, but can't remember the length of the belts I had to purchase. If possible, borrow a belt to measure and test. If I remember correctly, I had a t3 11 at the time too and the rear belt wouldn't fit on the T2 after the mod. I know for sure I had to buy a different belt. the length, I don't remember.

I want to say the t2 belt was too short and the t3 belt was too long, again I am not 100% for sure. for some reason the 186mm belt is sticking out in my mind that I bought.

Thanks! This is good to know. When I get my parts, I'll see what works and post my results here.
