hi guys
I've measured rear toe-in and it's uneven with 1.5 shims 3 degree one side 2.5 degree on the other side What causes that ?
Bended pivot pin ??

I've found the same thing. Unless you have a tool that can measure toe-in specific to a single side of the chassis parallel to the centerline of the chassis front to rear, not left compared to right as the Hudy and Integy tools, than several items can affect the readings.

Could be a bent hin pin more likely down to play in the suspension system as it cos quite hard to bend those pins

I've got TM HARD Setup station It's Quite decent one like Hudy setup station with all bearings and all...
Pivot pins rolls ok on setup board looks ok to me so it should be something common on 008s and like 0.3 difference between each side It's a bit annoying but I don't think you can even notice that with any other simple setup solutions ...

the stand is alright, but not if the wheel axle gauge adapter isnt screwed on tightly.. i've noticed mine comes loose once in a while and can skew the results

How much clearance does the T2 008 have for a battery pack under the bulkheads/top deck? I am wondering if a Core RC lipo 5000 pack will fit.

It wont but if you look back a couple pages you can see where EA posted some picks where you just add a couple shims under the top deck...hope this helps

Without any mods, still fitting under the top deck, max height is 22.5mm.

so iguess this means that you have never raced foam before. if that is the case i would go with parma cyan front and magenta rear on the pro 53 rims. this tire combo is very smooth on steering but if it is too smooth for you than i would go with the parma magentas all around on the pro 53 rims. hope this helps

Putting electronics in my new T2 008 EU spec.

Got a question.

First, the manual say the steering linkage and server arm should form a 90 degree angle.
After mounting my servo, there is no way that is happening. I have it mounted in the rear most hole and the link is as short as it can be. When I rotate the arm to make a 90 angle, the servo output shaft would have to be almost at the mounting post.

Anyone mind posting pics of their electronics mounted please.
