Hey guys,

I just recently picked up a T2 '007 and I am wondering if there are any tricks to mounting a lipo in this bad boy. I was told by the previous owner that he just mounted it at an angle, but I'm concerned with what might happen if I get into a crash. Any help would be greatly appreciated.--Al

Hi Al. If you can find a smaller lipo then it is good to slide it under the top deck with a battery tray, you can get a steel battery weight tray from Hyperdrive or Ea motorsports.
You could make the top deck higher to fit every battery just by cutting a old top deck and using the front and rear pece as spacers tpo raise the deck. and lastly you can just run it at an angle, I run mine on an angle all the time when i am testing different lipos and the car does handle fine that way.

Thanks, Paul

Paul,

I was wondering how easy it for you to travel with all your stuff to the races you attend. Do you always fly with your gear or ship it ahead? Does Xray take care of the logistics for your stuff? Are you always running new cars at every major race? Just curious.

Remember me? Im the guy with the Jilles body.

Hi, yea i remember.
Its not that hard to travel with proper gear, I always check two bags, i have one hudy bag for parts, tools, charger motors, batterys and my car. then i have a big suitcase that i put my cloths, transmitter, spair bodies, and tires. this way i dont have any carry on's and it makes flying much easier. for nitro races i get fuel shipped to the hotel. i accidently flew home with a 1/2 quort of fuel from my last race, somehow TSA didnt catch it. Ooops. but dont try that.
I dont build new cars that often atall, i have had all the cars that i am racing right now for over a year, but that is Xray.

Thanks, Paul

Hey Paul,

Long time reader first time poster!

Over hear in New Zealand we run 13.5 class and open mod class with lipo outdoor on bitumen surface but we are permitted to run foams. I am looking at getting a new xray soon and was wanting to know which chassis you would recommend, US or EU spec? I wasnt sure which would suit our tracks better.

Cheers

I'm not Paul, but I'll lend my opinion. You're better off with the EU spec car because it's easier to stiffen up that car for foam than it would be to get the flex you need out of the US spec if you ever chose to run rubber tires.

Hi, I do think that the EU kit would be the best option, i would think (but dont know) that a spool would be best and a Eu car comes with it. unless if the serface is increadibly high bite i would go with the EU kit. Thanks for posting!

Default WGT X10

Hi Paul,

I am the guy that got the door prize of the WGT X10 at the Portland OR Xray Challenge. It was really cool to see you run and I had the privilege of being the only guy that corner marshalled your car during the 25 minute nitro main. "Flat tracking it" and all, I still think about that... just awesome....

Anyway, getting to my needs :-) I've decided to race the xray X10 WGT kit at the IIC race in a side saddle lipo configuration. I went to the teamxray forum for setup sheets and they don't list the X10 at all... yet. I know the X10 was raced at a race or two and am wondering if there is something other to go by than the supplied basic carpet setup sheet included with the kit.

p.s. I played Paper Toss for a couple days then looked at the outrageous scores posted and gave up. Whats your high score dude ?

Cheers,

Jake D.
