I an looking to get a new TC and have been thinking hard about the 008. I want to be able to run parking lot or carpet. Would it be best to get the EU and convert it and what parts would i need to do this or the other way around get the us spec and convert it?

Thanks for your help.

Xray currently has three different chassis on the market. They are as followed:
  • United States (US) Thicker chassis (3.5mm) wider top deck and harder composite arms, and spindles. Also the drive train is 34 teeth opposed to the 38 the European spec is running. It sells with double diffs opposed to a spool or multi-diff.
  • EU Spec- (European Spec) 2.5mm chassis, not as wide upper deck, medium/hard arms. This car rolls on a 38 tooth drive train and If my memory serves me correct I believe the CVD's in the rear are longer to offset the 24mm rubber tires. This car comes with a spool opposed to a multi-diff (available at your LHS). This car comes with a 6 cell chassis.
  • Europe gets a 5 cell chassis with the exact same setup just a different chassis. Prices for all three are about all the same.
Parts should be interchangeable with the entire T2 series. This car is defiantly worth the money in terms of intervention and durability. Even if you wanted to race carpet down the road you don't need the 3.5 chassis but it might help in your lap times. All you would need is a 3.5mm chassis and upper deck. You could go for all of the extra/hard arms if money isn't an issue. It's just a stiffer chassis to reduce any unneeded flex. I say go for it and get the 008' sometime before spring.

Also, Click here for a link has all the information for each car and detailed photos. It also has a great setup database from top drivers around the world.

My Orion 4800 is not fitting smoothly on the T2'008 EU 6 cell. According to Xray website, the Eu 6cell is supposed to be Lipo ready, and even has a pic of the EU'08 with an Orion 4800 platinum. I went to try mine on to center my servo, and to my surprise, I had to actually force it in there...it does fit, but I dont belive it'll let chassis flex work well. Top deck seems to be flat against the top of the pack. Will I have to add .5mm shim between the bulk head and top deck to raise the top deck and give it some clearance like in the '07 EU kits?

I'm using an Orion 3600 and have about 1mm of clearance between the battery and upper deck. The 4800 is 1mm taller than the 3600, so you stating that the 4800 is right against the upper deck should be correct. I don't it will cause an issue though, as most of the flex will happen closer the the center/middle of the upper deck.

I'm finding that while the '008's bulkheads may be more LiPo friendly (no mods to the bulkhead or battery like on the '007) that there really is no good method of securing a LiPo in the chassis except to use Battery Tape.

On the '007 I could use all the corner battery stops and the battery retention bar to hold my LiPo 3200's. I did not know until last night that the '008 does not even have provisions to use the corner battery stops on the inside of the chassis for a LiPo or 6-Cell, just outside. There are 4-holes for the T and L battery stops on inside for 5-cell configs though. What I did to hold/stop my 3600 LiPo from hitting the spur or reaching the belt was to trim the T battery stops down, removing the alignment peg from the bottom. I had extra T-battery stops and cut down four of them and mounted on the chassis. This created a very solid stop for the LiPo. I then took the L-battery stops for the outside corner and trimmed the L-portion off, leaving the bulky portion for the screw hole and alignment peg only. This leaves a solid block to prevent the 3600-LiPo from moving back-forth in the chassis. Next, I spaced up the Battery Retention bar 1mm on each end, then secured the 3600-LiPo in the chassis. My only concern is that with enough force, I still risk ejecting the battery out the side of the car.

Can anyone point me to a range of pinion sizes for a stock motor in the '008? Only going to have so much cash left over, so I'd rather not waste money on pinons I'm unlikely to use.

Mostly racing on tight tracks, small straights.

what size track? Brushless? Brushed? for stock and 19/10.5 I have 40-50 tooth pinions. Brushless you will need up to 52 to make it down to 4.0 with 88 tooth spur lol. my 10.5 car I have 96/41 for a small carpet track starting ratio. range will be about 4.9-5.5 for 10.5.

Orion 4800 doesn't fit in 008US, at least without mods.
