Default What's the difference 007 rubber vs.foam

Xray has two models of the 007.The US & the EU edition.What parts are different cause i have the opportunity to buy some shocks and arms for my 07 US and these parts i am looking at are EU.
Is it just chassis or is it more than that.

not being a xray guy, but i think the differences are the top and bottom plate, one has thicker shock towers, one comes with ball diffs all round the other with spool or one way. i think thats it. Correct me if im wrong

Hi,

other than the one-way and the four stsnd offs. the chassis and upper deck are different (#301122 and #301178). all I bought was the upper and lower chassis plates to convert one of mine over.

Thanks

Mainly the chassis is 2.5mm for the Euro edition with hard arms, front oneway, different top deck and it does not come with the standoffs

Carpet edition has, 3.5mm chassis, more solid top deck, extra hard arms, duel diffs (new material not the factory lighten specs) and includes the standoffs as well.

Check out http://www.teamxray.com and you'll be able to find the specs and a brief tour inside the web page.

Best of luck-

Thanks Speedy.I really want the parts that get smacked a lot(especially with my driving) like the outer edges.cvd's,uprights,steering arms and such.I am not purchasing a whole car,so i don't have to worry about getting stuck with all the EU parts

The Eu DOES come with standoffs. I own both cars.

If your just buying indiviudal parts, nothing has changed significally to the outter drivetrain. Everything is the same expect in the USA version you get extra hard arms (great if you happen to run carpet, on my ride currently). If you run the Euro you get Hard arms (Stnd. in the T2 kits) The running change that I have heard of was in the CVD's they rounded off the lip of the axle coupler so that getting a CVD out wasn't a pain in the rear.

Hope that helps
