Thanks , but it is not a vanity issue.
I am starting to wear the front and rear screws as I wear the chassis

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

Broken Racing: i'm using TRF shocks as well on my 009 and they are already spaced forward due to the Tamiya mounting pins. Do you add more shimms to move your shocks more forward? If so, by how much? 1mm, 2mm...?

thanks in advance.

i purchased the chassis directly from Exotek. they have an online shop.
i bought the graphite holder version. it needed about 14grams to balance left to right.

The thinner upper plate is on order. That should provide more steering. i didnt know these were available. thanks for the suggestion.

Use Associated top shock mounts p/no 31250 & use a 2mm shim minimum

I run the Xray black springs but have also used the TRF, coloured Xray & Associated springs too...the blacks are best for me & the rating will vary with each track

I think you really can't go past any Futaba servo, 3050 if you're on a budget, my preference the 9551 & the 08 has an in-built servo saver

My pleasure, glad to help, just make sure you take time to sort the Exotek chassis, it will be different at first

Are you using the Exotek chassis?
Do you notice that the 08 has more steering than the 09 & T3 because of the natural drag in it? or is it just my chassis? Because I can run much more consistent with the 08 because of this drag. My T3 seems to roll or coast so it is much harder to get it to turn without using drag brake or tapping the brakes, or I would have to let off the throttle way before the turn making it harder to do at the same point every time. I have to add roll into the 08. I have let some guys try my 08 and they say it is too twitchy and can't drive it, yet I turn the best laptimes with it. I'm using Paul Lemieaux's setup

Had the exotek but discarded it & stick with the std deck

I don't run sway bars on tight tracks (like we race on/low grip) & it gets around like a VTA but is quick...I think I know what you mean by drag assisting turn in, it's used on real race cars, my drag comes from the esc set up

The amount of steering you have has a lot to do in how you set the car up & with that, how you prefer it...my 08 like your's is quick to react, twitchy if you like & very quick, it just suits me...I can drive away from others yet when we swap cars I still drive away from them so remember, the organic factor still contributes most to you cars performance

At our track my 08 can easily out turn 416's, T3's, mi4's

Test, Practise & test some more is the best way to go

What shims are being used to stop the spec r gear diff from moving side to side in the Xray T2 08 / 09 / T3? Part # please. I know the opening has to be 10mm.

for my t2 009, i bought the spec r gear diff VM II, built as the manual instrcuted, installed it in my kit (50 mm driveshafts) and no issues. but I'm just one person, don't know about the others.
