faster out of the box than my 007, needed to tame it down a bit. softer bars all around. less rebound in the rear, more rebound in front. Also, I added a bit of throttle at 0% to idle up if you will. about .4mm more droop all around. Helped tame the car a bit. Doesn't transition as crisply as it did. But my lap times are better so who cares. But about 1/50th the work of getting my 007 car up to speed.. it pushed eternally.. then had a lack of rear grip off the corner when i got the mid corner balance to be just right.. 008. VERY NICE

now if I can just get my NT1 to where this car is on low bite I will be stoked. More testing this weekend at speedworld...

I wish I could tell you how I like my 008 but I can not get the spur/ pinion correct I run Novak 13.5. This is my first Xray and this is a bit of a let down, but the rest of the kit is very nice and all parts went together perfectly. Can some of my fellow Xray drivers give a noviice some advice?

Dag,

Most people I know running 10.5s and 13.5s are running smaller spur gears than the standard kit gears. I believe they are running around 88 tooth 64 pitch gears and using the appropriate pinion for their motor/track.

Hi Steve,

About the Spur gears: the T2'008 still only can use Xray Spr gears, or the PRS or RW, or Kimbrough will work Ok also?

The RW and Kimbrough gears will fit if you sand the plastic pulley spacer a little thinner. I laid mine flat on a piece of sandpaper and moved it back and forth until it became the right thickness.

I bought those same gears and I can not tighten the motor if I do that combo.

96*52 works great you just have to take the top decks off to adjust the mesh

Nexus made the comment earlier that the locals where he is at is using the RW 100s and they are drilling a hole in it to allow the driver to reach the motor screws. I have the RW gear... just havnt had the time to install it yet.

Yep, just one strategically-placed small hole is all you need...since the spur gear is a good distance away from the motor mount, you'll even have room to get to the left motor screw at an angle if needed .

Sorry if this is a repetitive question but what is the internal ratio?

2.375

But i have a question. If you make the gear changes (to 34/20) like others have suggested, what is the "new" ratio?

Thanks Rainey. To answer your question I believe it is 34/20=1.7. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
