Default T2R

Hi! I just joined RCTech. I am not new to RC though.

I was wondering if there have been any prevalent problems in the Xray T2R. For example, I know that the Cyclones have belt chucking issues. Have there been any recurring parts that break?

I was also wondering how well the bearings hold up. The stock kit bearings... should I soak them in degreaser overnight then lightly oil them? Or should I just install it as is? And how often must I take them apart?

Finally, does the FRP chassis get scratched up easily? Can I buy a lexan undertray for it? (I will be running asphalt.)

Thanks!
David

Ive not ever had any of the Xrays, but i'm guessing you could get some sheet lexan and very thin double sided tape for the chassis, but you might need to raise the ride height another mm or 2

Team Associated (www.rc10.com) sells a clear protective sheet with adhesive that can stick to the bottom of the chassis.

I bought a T2R as well but haven't ran the thing yet....I keep telling myself that I will be able to once they release us for Spring Break

I have an Xray T2R and have had no major problems with it and I find it to be a really good car the only thing I have consistently replaced is the tires due to wear and tear.

If I jack the car up in ride height, will it be a worthy basher?

I ask this because my primary interest is in racing (I do 1/8 buggy) but I'd really like to go rip it up sometimes on the tarmac. (UNPREPPED!) The belts might not be too happy with it.

Can the 007 US Chassis (301123), upper deck (301179) and rear upper deck (303044) be used with the T2R?

depending on what class u run, the car has different problems. If you use it for mod class, the diffs will go straight away, replace them with T2 labriynt diffs.
My bearings are doing fine so far, no major problems.
I have done a few belts, mainly due to debree getting in the the car.

Also The T2007 parts listed will not fit the t2r, you have to buy a full conversion kit, which is aroun 200usd

I think the T2R is an awesome car. I have a T2R, an T2 that was run at the worlds last year by a factory Xray driver, and a T2 007 EU. My favorite is the T2r. For asphalt racing it is hands down my best car. I have only broken the chassis, and that was because I had a runaway into a curb at full throttle.

I kind of thought that might be the case. Thanks.

I ran my T2R for the first time two weekends ago (on carpet). I was running a Cyclone S. With the T2R I was able to put in an extra lap as well as reducing my single best and average lap time.

Thanks for the input.
