What can be grinded, that I dont know. I also have a TC5R and it suffers
from this also thats why I bought a spare steering post just in case it got
thin and snapped. The wild movements of the front belt will hit/rub it.
My T2 2009 is brandnew, still waiting for electronics and adding some
stuff like motor guard and batt holder. I dont want to use the front spool
that is included, prefer a ball diff instead. Looks like I have to accept this
flaw. Or use a bigger pulley or tighten the belt to reduce play which I
dont like to do.
I just read the link .Looks like some people had problems...

I may be able to help! you mite have your middle pully backwards the one with the spur gear. Or if that is not it put a new belt check it and make sure it is centered if not loosen all main upper and lower deck screws and tite back carefuly on a flat surface and if it still does it you can move one of those diff adjusters more on one side so the belt goes to the drivers side of the car. Whew hope that helps. I love my 09 and i run diff front and rear and it feels great specialy going around the T3's lol

Ok, Ill check my center pulley, but Im sure I assembled it the right way.
New belt? Im using a new belt, the car is brandnew.

The problem really is the ball diff pulley, it's wide, wider than the spool
pulley, thats why it tends to go sideways thus hitting the servo saver.

Thanks for suggesting though

hey guys,

am thinking about buying a 1/10 electric car, my first to be exact and since i know what's Xray is all about. am really interested in buying either a T2 009 or the T3, i found a couple of lightly used T2 009 for a very good price instead of paying 500 bucks for the T3, i will run on an indoor carpet track, 100' by 50' and quiet technical with a 95' straight,
now my questions:

1- how different the 2 cars are from eachother? main differences?
2- how's the T3 better if its better?
3- is the T2 009 lipo friendly?? or does it need a mod to accept a Lipo pack??
4- am not gonna race against Paul, jilles or hara but will the T2 match up to the new 416X, and all the newer Kits? i know it depends on the driver and i have enough skills to make it go straight
5- i will buy the Exotek chassis if i get the T2, will it improve the handling?

cheers

ALi

1. T3 overall has more steering, inherent traction, and is easier to drive.

2. I don't own one but everyone I know loves it as it's another great evolution of the Xray touring car series. I've driven them and can attest to #1.

3. 009 is lipo friendly with the optional lipo pads. You'll be able to fit most packs under the top deck with this.

4. The 008/009 is still very competitive and should not be discounted at all. I regularly see the older car beating up on the newer car. This isn't to say the new car isn't nice - it's just that modern touring cars are so similar in design that it's very difficult to make huge strides in development between models.

5. Dunno.


My advice is to either find a used 008 or 009 (they are the same car) from a reliable source or purchase the T2R Pro. It's the same exact design as the 009 but comes with fibreglass pieces in leiu of the carbon fibre. All it needs to be race ready is a set of turnbuckles.

I honestly suggest the T2R Pro because of its low cost and nothing beats a fresh, brand new car. You might find a good deal on a 008 or 009 but you're bound to need to replace a few things.

Hey Dane,

thanks alot for the answers and the great info. i was looking at the T2R Pro and it seems like a very nice car too. why i prefer the 009 is because of the orange aluminum parts
so, you are sayin, if i have the money, i should buy the T3? if on a budjet, i should get a brand new T2R Pro.

thanks alot

Ali

I'm saying that if you have the money and you are one the fast guys at your track, you might want to consider the T3. Otherwise, do the T2R Pro.

Xray comes out with a new car every year and next year I think we will see a lipo-only chassis which might be something to look into more deeply. The chassis could be much like the Exotec or others. It might be a good idea to hold off on the latest and greatest for now.

No problem! Have fun!

Default Motor forward conversion w/ 38T pulleys

Anyone tried this conversion? Any good? Seems like the T3 uses the 38T pulleys but I could not determine if it uses the forward conversion as well.

I found the conversion on the 009 left it a bit unstable for my liking.
Only ran it a few times at my local track, during one race day put the kit parts back in and was immediately faster.

The T3 doesn't have any 'conversion' as a lot of the essential parts are different anyway.

I've been racing the 009 at my local track since mid season of last year. before that was the fk 05 chassis. the 009 is such a dominating sedan i can't image the t3 being better. i myself am waiting for my conversion kit to come in. if it alters the stability in anyway shape or form its out and on eBay. Xrays have become the dominating sedans at my local track. we have a racer who's building a t3 for our next race. can't wait to see if it is an improvement over the 009.
