Hopefully there will be a upgrade kit...

But yes having plenty of fun....

Thanks

If you read the improvements- the 009 is a 008 with soem new parts. If you have to drive a 009, you can buy a few upgrades and you'll have a 009.

Unless you buy the BS marketing that mentions the improvements in tolerences etc..

Or just compare the parts list...it's very much the same car. I almost bought that BS marketing...then I compared the parts list.

The only differences between the 008 and 009 other then color (and price tag ) is the 009 comes with all the lighter drive train parts, the LiPo top deck spacers, and I think the battery is moved out further from the center line of the car so its not so close to the pinion/spur.

that's what I understand as well, except the big part is the battery movement means different chassis, hopefully the bulkhead positions are the same. Glad I only bought the US version for winter carpet and waited for the EU until summer.

How could that be possible with the same part number for the chassis? Unless they changed the chassis and left the same part number...

Because of the LiPo battery width, it is important
to check that the motor pinion is not touching the
battery. If the pinion touches the battery (or is close
to touching it), move the pinion closer to the motor.
It is sufficient to have only half of the pinion teeth
contacting the spur gear teeth. This has no effect on
the carís speed or performance.


That came from the Xray website, which leads me to believe they didn't change anything on the chassis.

If you would have quoted my whole response you would have noticed I said "I think" right before I said the battery slots have been move out... I am not 100% sure but I thought I had read that somewhere. However, running changes to parts with the same part number is not an uncommon practice...

I'll take you out of context again and say that I hope that's not the case.

I have been talking with Bryan at RC America about the T2'009 and he mentioned they have dropped the price on the T2'008. They have the US and EU versions in stock. You can get the new discounted price through any XRAY dealer. We're selling the T2'008 for $450 with free shipping.

I recently bought a 2nd hand 008 and I'm looking for a pinion/spur combo for brushed stock motor on a tight indoor carpet track.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Default Bearing size for 303358 *without* using the composite holder?

What is the Inner Diameter of the 303358 aluminum rear hubs? I prefer to use larger bearings than the 5x9 mm with the composite holder. Will the regular 5x10 mm bearings (the stock size included in the kit) fit correctly if you don't use the composite bearing holder?

A 5x11mm bearing will fit perfect.

116/32 is a good start for a CO27. Somewhere around a 1.0-1.10 rollout depending on motor/track.
