grease to use would be either mugen super grease (amazing stuff), or the hudy grease. most hobby shops should be able to get the mugen super grease easily. I just recently switched from mugen grease to hudy. found the mugen grease has better cling.

Default Rubber VS Foam ?

Hello to All,

I have couple of questions before I purchase the T2’009, I plan on racing outdoors during summer as well as indoor carpet racing in the winter. However TEAM- Xray has to chassis to choose from US Spec –EU Spec which do I go with?

1. Overall which tire is better for on-road racing foam or rubber?
2. Also what would be the best choice of a Li-Po battery ROAR Legal for T2’009, price is not an issue?
3. Are there any specific modifications that need to be made to the car do to weight of Li-Po?
4. Any additional information would be great.

Thank You
Bart

Purchase the EU spec edition for rubber tires witch seems more likely for you to run rubber tires.

Any battery that fits will be fine. I use a 5000 mah trinity pack

To get the car to balance with the lipo just add weight to the battery side of the car with either some sort of a tray or stick on weights.

It looks like the new motor position kit for the 009 includes front and rear pulleys. Why? Are they really 38t, while the stocks are 34t? Perhaps it is so the front belt can stay the same? But going to a 38/20 internal ratio makes gearing 17.5t motors even more annoying and impossible with Xray parts. Is it some designer at Xray not wanting all his efforts on developing the 008's alternate pulleys to be tossed out as pointless?

If you are looking for a used car the 007 is a good car. I am sure you can get a good deal on the 007 car. You will like the performance of the car. I have a friend that is still racing an 007 car and does well with it.

are you sure? my little metric guys that I have now fit, but there is quite a bit of play in when the tip is inserted and I am afraid of stripping out the heads.... i was starting to think that maybe they are standards.
