opening another hole is a much bigger change than changing oil weight. Usually you can get your set up close with holes and then fine tune with oil weight.

Adam:to be perfectly honest I dont know. I know that it does make a difference mainly with the pack of the shock, and the off-road guys do more with it than i ever have. maybe the EVICERATOR can shed a little technicial light on us. But for the most part usually 30wt with 1,2,3 or 4 hole is just fine for me.

Hi Steve, will you be in OH next week

Gonzo: any servo works well ( I use the futaba 9550) then i run my rx on its side as far foreward as possible, then just behind that i run the Lrp Sphere on its side as well backing up to the rx so there is a good gap between the motor and the speedo. basicly i push everything foreward as much as possible to get things as ballanced as possible.

Hey Paul, any chance with your new found technical wizadry you could maybe post a picture for all to see of your electronic layout?

Any possible reasons why this happened ?
Did you figure out what caused this problem yet? Hope you did.

"VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE !!

To: All XRAY T2'007 Owners
Date: 27th October 2006
Subject: T2'007 Ball-bearing Oiling


Additional Information for the ball-bearings
After feedback that T2'007 ball-bearings tend to fail sooner than usual, we have performed in-depth analysis, measurement, and comparison to the previous batches of ball-bearings. All measurements and testing have shown that the ball-bearings in the T2'007 kits have no defects with respect to size, material, or workmanship; in fact, the ball-bearings are manufactured with higher precision and tolerance than previously. The situation is in fact due to the increased precision and higher tolerances of these ball-bearings; when dust or carpet fibres enter into the ball-bearing it becomes trapped and the ball-bearing locks up and unfortunately, this tends to happen sooner than the previous batch of ball-bearings.


For this reason the ball-bearings must be serviced, cleaned, and oiled more frequently when the car is run in dusty conditions or on carpet with fibres.

We suggest the following maintenance procedures for the T2'007
ball-bearings:

1) Apply standard bearing oil in all ball-bearings BEFORE installing the ball-bearings in the car.

2) When running in dusty conditions or on carpet with fibres (which stick to the car) you will have to clean and oil the ball-bearings much more frequently. For this reason we suggest that you regularly inspect the bearings, clean all the debris from the car, and oil the bearings.

3) When servicing, always apply a sufficient amount of bearing oil.

4) The increased amount of servicing is essential when the ball-bearings are new. By regular use and servicing the ball-bearings will develop higher play."

I'm not learned in the technical details. However, I have found one rule of thumb that seems to always work, when measuring compression and rebound speed on a shock length tool.

Regarding compression speed, a 2 hole piston difference is close to a 5wt shock oil difference with xray oil. However, the lighter weight oil setup always seems to have a slightly quicker rebound.

Examples:

1. 30wt with 2 holes closed is very similar to 35wt with 0 holes closed
2. 25wt with 3 holes closed is very similar to 30wt with 1 hole closed

This doesn't sound like a positive at all??? Bad translation maybe?

I just got a '007 this passed week and I have to say that I am impressed with the car so far ... we'll see how it stacks-up against the RDX - so-far, pretty close with only one-day tunning on it. I do have to say - the build quality of Mr. Hudy's work is 2nd to none. It was awesome with my 1st T1 - and it's still awesome today.
