bravo. this notion is lost in rc...

Ditto. Nice wire job, i hate opening up ESC and SERVO cases, but you may have inspired me to now, that looks so clean, only problem is if you swap out electronics to another car u have to rewire..... Actually for a quick fix i could use extension wires they sell them in 4-6" lenghts... ok looks like an new project.

Joel, me too. That picture has inspired me to shorten my leads.

Thanks guys,

You dont have to open the case unless you wanna put new wires on. They sell the little ends for the leads you can cut and solder new ones on. Its a pain but works wonders with messy wiring situations, Its not too hard on a Keyence to solder on the board, not that I would know.

Hey guys

I am new to touring and just recently picked up a t-2. I was told there were problems with the t-2 and thats the reason the 007 was developed. If this is in fact true, what does it cost or is there a conversion kit to turn my t-2 into a 007? Where is the best place to purchase x-ray parts?

Thanks
Brian

Nothing wrong with it.... evolution just continues. Each new model is simply trying to improve on the last.. some improvements are very small.

The T2 is 100% upgradeable to the new '007 specs as xray is producing conversion sets. But if u just got your T2 why not try driving it first and enjoy the car. Unless you have a lot of on road race experience you would not even detect the differences between the 2 cars on the track. Why spend 200$ before even racing what u have..

Locally we still got guys A-maining and winning with the FK04.

I'd like to take a minute and welcome Mo Denton to the Xray team for 2007. Mo will be a valuable addition to the Xray USA Team.
