Billy are you running an x-ray now? I was looking at the 008s and I was wondering what are the benefits to having the Euro editions and how do I convert it to US tranmittion? I would appreciate your help on any of this thank you.

A little correction.
All EU kits are now shipped with 1,7 & 2,375 pulley sets.
For the first batch XRay did a free update with a 1,7 pulley set.

Yes, I'm running the 008. If you are racing on rubber tires, I would definately go with the EU kit.

Joep is right, the EU kit comes with both the 1.7 and 2.375 pulleys. I forgot about that.

jonas, no one knows, because the plastic one hasn't been released yet. Considering how great the 008 Al diffs have been, I can't imagine the plastic ones being better. It's curious that the plastic ones aren't out yet - perhaps Xray is realizing they have created the perfect diff, and anything different will be inferior.

Guys, I have the T2 and the T2' 007 EU, do I really need the
T2' 008? Any big difference in performance? Our outdoor asphalt
racing starts next month or so, I'm still contemplating on the 008!
I know you will say yes, but any suggestions are welcome!

No, you don't NEED it, but you will WANT it.

There are a few things that make the '008 just a little better, but if you aren't a super consistent driver, than you won't be able to take advantage of all of it.

Some pluses that will matter no what are the weight. The '008 is about 60-75 grams lighter, and is better balanced, so less weight will be needed on top of the already reduced weight.

Thumbs up

Maybe I'll just wait till somebody with an '008 beats me in the track.
I'm a consistent driver in our local track. I love my '007, it's very easy
to drive even with the 4.5R Brushless motor.
