I've looked at it....Originally, I thought it was a Evo2 with tub-chassis.... but it showed up, that several of the adjustment possibilities are gone.... So it's not a car for me.

Cole, what adjustment possibilities are missing? it is close to the same car as an evo 2, except for the shocktowers, chassis and upperdeck.

I think it's going to be a big sucess for people that are on a budget but still want a high quality car!

Time will tell-but I think, with a carpet top deck-it might be the car to beat in high traction!!!!

I am planning on buying the tub chassis and putting it on my evo2 this summer and testing it out.

Yep, it surely have the potential for being a hit.

But personally, I'm missing the adjustable one-way and the battery location changements. I also mis the pivot ball suspension mounts, so it's not needed to change rear blocks for changing rear toe. Same goes for the clips for changing caster. It might be details, but in my next car, I'm prioriting easy access for setup adjustment.

So dont get me wrong, I think the Raycer is a great car, but unfortunately, it aint got what I'm personally looking for.

Cole, most guys including myself dont really even use the center oneway, they just lock it up or replace it with the solid center shaft in favor of less rotating mass.

and for road course most guys have found that the best batt position is the one set up in the t1 racer, this gives the best balance most have found.

most everyone who runs the car on carpet have found the c-hubs work much better. some for asphault as well. but you do have to change hubs for caster adjustment with this set up instead of the easy clips.

because the t1 racer has the c-hubs to change castor. the car however still uses the clips for wheelbase.

Sorry... I was reading it fast. I thought he was saying that you can not change toe-in in the rear with the clips . My Bad... yeah... the only downside with the C-Hub is the Castor Blocks. 4Degree is pretty much standard for asphalt..6degree for capret. I see no problem. As for the midshaft.. we always keep it locked. Pillow ball suspenison was to heavy for carpet racing. The only part you really need for Carpet with this car is the Graphite Solid Upper Deck.

ya i will kind of stink when i do go to c-hubs but im used to it from every other car i have owned.

the racer should be every bit as capable if not more than the evo2 on carpet. i think i will be trying a few parts from the racer on my evo2 for carpet.

Hey Spaz456, thanks for the info, it sounds promising.

Personally, I would probably stick with a one-way diff - I really like it on carpet.

Never thought about the weight of pillow balls before.... But I would assume it was the unsprung weight that was the problem. And I believe that wouldnt matter much on carpet, since carpet tracks are so smooth? I like the fact there's fewer moving parts, in the meaning of less slop in the steering. Plus the adjustability...

Maybe the Evo2 of the Raycer could have the clips solution for caster?
