i ran the Us'007 for rubber class up here and it worked just as good as anything else.

This is what a lot of people used on the T2 with jaco foams.
Used them at the carpet nats last yr and it was a tight fit for the roar tech box but it fit.

I prob have 2 full sets of them somewhere here, i wont run foams again...
$12 a set shipped, one is brand new and the other was used for about 5 races. I will have to find them to confirm I still have both..
XRay makes thicker offset hexes also now if anyone didn't know. I put the +.75 ones on the front with a tiny shim and my Jacos work fine.

It effected the steering geometry some I guess. The idea of lowering the steering travel (then building more steering into it) sounds as though it may be the best attempt. Thanks for your help. Dont get me wrong. I am not totally dissapointed with the car. Just surprised by that discovery.
Alot of cars will rub on the shock retainers. Like others have suggested, just run in inner shock hole on the arm. Then turn the dual rate or endpoints down. You shouldn't be running full lock to lock anyways. If you are, your car my not be setup right. And you are scrubbing off alot of speed in doin so.

the rims rub the rear shocks also. what handling characteristics change when moving the shocks to the inner hole?

Gonzo: Chris p hit the nail on the head. it sounds technicial with lets say 4.75mms ride height, but as all that means is that it cleared a 4.5mm tech bar but it did not clear 5mm on my guage, so on a set-up sheet i would put down 4.75mm.

Pro tech: I agree that the x-ray graphite could be stiffer but i think that their is alot to be said for consistancy of the flex, now im not saying that this is a proper compairison and trust me I have a Ton of respect for your apinion but here it is. they make very thin spring steel t-bars that are about as stiff as a .73 t-bar but no one runs them because they work so much differently. I figure that the flex of a thicker peice if graphite is much more consistant and returns smoother than the same amount of flex in a thinner peice. Im not saying that im totally right but their has to be a reason because the car works very well with it.

i would agree with you paul if the material actually did return from a flex.it will hold twist.try twisting the top deck and then put it on a flat plate.it turns into a pretzel.i am not really sure what they are using but it is very strange.it has alot of the characteristics of G10 fiberglass.standard component grade doesnt hold a twist like that.the car does seem to be working well.i dont think that was incorperated into the design but it seems to be working.i think it was cost cutting honestly.it allowed them to use thicker material and pocket the chassis and not increase cost.save in one area,spend in another.i think it worked out good for them and they didnt have to increase cost.i dont think they went as deep as you think in the design.just my .02

We didnt discover the problem till just before the main. Nicks best went from an 8.4 to a 8.8 by shimming the wheel. I too was helping another guy with his TC3. I had Jacos on.
