Are you in a rush not to wait on Nexus to be back up? If so, just order from RCAmerica.... of course, it may be quicker to wait for Nexus to be back up and running.......

Default Spur Gear question

Im running the T2 009 EU which comes with a 84 tooth 48 pitch spur, now I run 13.5 and with this spur I wont be able to fit the right gearing on so will need a 80 tooth spur. Looking through my xray parts list most the xray spur gears are off set ?? but the one that came with the kit isnt. Not sure what off set does and do I need it. Are the RW spurs gears any good as they make some to fit the T2 009

Yes, you should be using an offset spur, don't know why your kit came without. The RW stuff is good.

4 years of development advances things a lot. The 009 is light years ahead of the FK05, although the FK05 was a very good car in it's time.

Any more direct comparasin, I understand it is newer. Looking more for specific advantages.

well from the 05 to the 007, the suspension geometry changed making the car faster but at the same time more consistent / drivable. ....

Hey JimmyMac,

I had the same problem to. I even set the the tension to the loosest setting 's and it was to tight. Next Time I race Im going to take out the 38 pullies and put the 34 pullies back in. That should cure the belts being to tight, and bring the ratio back to 1.70 instead of 1.90.

Hope this helps

there is another alternate notch where the top plate bolts to the bulkhead you can put the adjuster there for extreme loose or tight belts.

cheers

Doesn't work. Still too tight.

I'm thinking eccentric bearing holders might do the trick.

So i was looking over my xray tonight, just trying to plan out how I am going to lay out my electronics... and I found a question. Does anybody ever mount their receicer... standing on its side, in FRONT of the battery? A typical micro receiver, standing on its side clears both the little slot for battery tape, and the steering assembly / tire. It would seem to me a decent way to get a more natural balance out of the car.

Is this a good idea? bad idea? something I am not thinking of?

Cpt.

Hey Guys I tried the car with the 34t pulleys no go.... the belts where way too loose Lol... Im thinking of either getting a 18t center pulley just to ease some of the tension. But it will change the ratio to a 2.11. That might work for now.

Im going to look at other tour cars and try there belts, maybe a Associated or a Yokomo belts and see how they work. maybe they wont be as tight. All Xray has to do is redo there belts for this up grade or redo there pulleys.
