Have to agree with Steevo. Xray products in general are considered the cream of the crop. The T1R is something of a unique bird. Xray really isn't marketing it as a Novice or Sport chassis. They try to make people aware that this is a full blooded Xray race machine wrapped in a less expensive package. From everything I've read, they've succeded. As you are in Australia. be aware that the T1R chassis can suffer some deformation from high heat. You can read these comments in the Xray T1 thread . You're researching this well.........keep asking until you feel comfortable with making a choice but remember......we've all followed fellow racers advice only to find that the car doesn't fit our own driving style.

I too have heard the talk about the chassis tweaking in the heat but to date I have no problem with my chassis tweaking. Xray do warn about leaving it in your car on a hot day but to be honest if you do that then you are asking for trouble anyway.

If you look after your car like most people do you won't be leaving it out in the sun in your car on a hot summers day so like me you should have no worries.

Like evoracer said, you are going about it the right way.
In the end evaluate all you have heard and weigh it up and go with what your head tells you... but if you are leaning towards the Xray I am sure you won't be disappointed

The Evo2 chassis will allow various battery configurations. I have not put a stick pack in one only saddle pack or side by side configuration. I would imagine the stick pack could be Taped in.

The Evo2 chassis will cost you about $80.00Australian from overseas.
Don't try and buy it here in OZ as it sells for about $160 Dollars here!!!!

The New Evo2 chassis has 6 slots each side for batteries.
All the Evo2 standard and option parts will fit the T1R...

I have never run either the T1R or TA04R in Stock 540 class so I can not comment.

Forgive me if I am wrong but I get the Idea that you have only stick packs to work with which is influencing your decision.

If this is the case I thought that I would mention that stick packs can be pulled apart and made into saddle or side by side packs easily..

I just thought I'd mention that just in case
