I looked up some setup sheets on the team xray page and there was a guy here local on there running a T2 onroad TC with really soft shocks infact yellow in the front (the softest) and light blue I believe in the back (3rd or 4th softest) and I thought that that was kinda strange. BTW I fixed my alignment problem, apparently that little nob on my transmitter that says st trim stands for steering trim :-), now it pulls ever so slightly to the left.

hey man,

I have had the same glitching issues when using an AM/FM radio. I believe it to be some sort of interferance outside (electric dog fence maybe). When I use a spektrum radio it goes completely away.

I might end up getting myself a spektrum at the end of september for my birthday, but for right now that minor glitch isn't hurting much, rgith now I'm just trying to find a good set up, I found one on the team xray site, if you would look at it let me know what you think of it, http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...D=711&setup=t2

TIP:

Always start with your steering trim at "0". If your servo saver is bias left or right... you should adjust your "subtrim" so you servo saver is perfectly centered.

Then - adjust all of your mechanical linkages (steering / servo links) so your car runs true (not pulling either way)

Once you set your toe-in, or toe-out, then the only linkage you should have to adjust would be your servo link. This is the best way to set up your front end steering.

Hopefully this helps. Let me know or better yet, the best way to get the most out of the hobby is to share your knowlege and help a fellow racer.

Good luck!!

Hey josh, first of all, congratulated with the purchase of your new car.
As far as setup tips, I would like you to refer to the Xray setup book. This explains almost anything and will answer a lot of your questions. I couldn't find an online version, but maybe somebody else can find it for you.
If it's not out there on the internet, maybe somebody can send you his book or a copy of it. This will help alot for sure.

I have the manual, and its not so much the taking it apart and setting it up as much as the hey this is a general angle of camber, ect ect, that you want to use for this type of activity, and adjusting it this way or that creates this and loses that, and the manual does do a little with some things. I did find a setup for an asphalt T2 in florida but the shock setup seems funny, if yall would take a look at it let me know what you think I would appreciate it,
