XRAY 38T Pulley Rubber-Spec Conversion Set (T2'009)




* 305058: T2 008 Diff Pulley 38T with Labyrinth Dust Covers
* 305188: T2 008 Composite Solid Axle 38T - Set
* 305432: High-Performance Kevlar Drive Belt Front 3x513mm
* 305446: High-Performance Kevlar Drive Belt Rear 3x189mm
So I'm assuming that I can convert it to 1.9 because of your post. I thought we can only go to 1.7 but I have all the parts, so i'll get on it tomorrow. Thanks Rockin Rich

Default t2 008 rubber is it the same as t2 008 foam?

Q as title ...can the T2 008 chassis be interchangeable with rubber to foam ? Do all the holes line up if so what are the difference with them? Thanks

almost the same except the foam is thicker which makes it more stiff, i think there are a few extra holes, for the top deck braces they had on foam chassis.

other then that i think all the other holes will line up.

There a few guys I know running a 08 & 09 foam car with rubber tires on them. There lap times are pretty close to us guys running the rubber tire version.

Default Should I replace my chassis

I have a T2 2008 and love how it drives and handles. The chassis is showing wear on the bottom along the outer edges and the front and rear. I want to replace the chassis but worry it will change the handling since this chassis is broken in am I Crazy? Should I just leave it alone?

I plan on upgrading to the exotek chassis. more affordable than xray oem... narrower, ei less scrubbing

I have been happy with my 08 so far. It keeps up relatively well against the newer cars except for slow speed lollypop type turns. I think the geometry changes of the t10/11 and others like tamiya show an advantage in these areas. Otherwise, open flowing tracks, it holds its own really well. it is a really good value racing chassis.

I haven't been able to get his set up because he hasn't been at the track.

spec r will go in this wkend. will post how it went if I can find this thread again.

I did replace the factory lower chassis with the exotek unit. Ran it Sunday and it actually worked really good. The install was simple. Everything bolted up with no issues. quality seems good.

It does seem to be thinner than the oem chassis so make sure to take time torquing the bulkheads evenly and ckng on the setup board to make sure the chassis stays flat.

car really doesnt seem to be lacking against the T3 in open tracks. Yet to run it against them in tight tracks again with the current changes.

Seriously, whilst I've got late model cars, I still use the 08, mine can easily out turn late models in the tight turns at the track I go to. If you can, do the following to it...

1.5mm Spec-R top deck
TRF Shocks... Space the front shocks foward
Ceramics (use Shumacher ones, they're cheaper & better)
Set it up to kit spec..& away you go

Spec-R have them & you can get the 34t housing so you don't have to change gearing

Forget the appearence, leave that to the wankers, just race it & enjoy the fact you're beating them with an older model
