Hi guys,... I'm new for the carpet racing. Can anyone give me some tips for carpet racing set up.

Iam using T2'009 with 23T stock motor, Sorex 40 rubber tyre, we are allowed to use paragon addictive in this race

1. What sort of sorex tyre should I use?
2. Should I tyre warmed the tyre before race to what degree of temp?
3. Should I apply paragon addictive then tyre warmed my sorex?
4. What kind of setting should i adjust for carpet racing?

Cheers....

For those who have been asking about the SMC lipos and the Xray lipo weights.







It is a really tight but it does fit!

Try Sorex 28's, i dont use tire warmers, try all in back and the inside half in front, the stock setup is pretty close. Just put your own little things on it to adjust to your driving style.

What is the difference between the t2 pro and the 009? Is it like the cyclone S and TC?

yes it's like the difference between the two cyclone's . it's a good entry level car some of the differences is that the 009 has carbon fiber chassis where the t2 r has fiber glass chassis from what i understand . definitely a better car than the hot bodys car

The 009 basically has all the bells and whistles. Carbon Fiber which makes it an overall lighter car, the orange anodizing, and the Hudy spring steel (i dont know if the t2 pro has this or not)

I have a problem. Im running carpet on rubber tires with basically the stock setup (shocks are layed pretty much all the way down). Yesterday when i was running i had a really bad push, but then figured it out. After figuring that out, my back end was so loose i could barely make it through the sweeper without spinning out. Its loose in the infield also, but i really need it stable in the sweeper. I tried to take the rear sway bar off to make it lazier and give it more traction, and it worked a little, but its still pretty loose. I dont really know where to go from here. Maybe a stiffer sway bar in the front. Any suggestions?

ALOT!!! I bought thr T2R-PRO and ordered it with the Lunsford Turnbuckles, because it comes with NON-adjustable buckles. also the diff in the rear is plasric, nothing wrong with it it's butter smooth it's just theres no external diff adjustments. This was also upgraded to the oo8-009 diff.
Now if you plan on running on low-bite asphalt the T2RPRO is the way to go, nothing I mean NOTHING can touch this car on low traction asphalt/parking lot tracks. When others are fighting for traction this car is stuck!
I ran the car on carpet and busted the front aluminum axles at the CVDS. I would get the steel axles especially for a front spool.
But I would recomend the 009 whisch is what I converted the T2R-PRO into, except for all the Orange anodizing. It will be cheaper to buy the 009 than to upgrade from the t2r. my $.02

Just finished building my 009 and felt a bit ripped off. I'm guessing it's just a newer production run, but my layshaft, servo mounts, and rear diff are anodised black not gold/orange (yes I realise the diff was never orange but hudy/xray grey). Don't get me wrong it still looks good, in fact I'm thinking about having my 008 anodised completely black, just doesn't look like the box. Anyone else notice this?

According to the parts cross-reference, no.

You are correct in noticing the subtle changes and yes they are just production changes, although please keep in mind Xray products are amongst the best in the industry!!!

Have fun running your new car ..........and best regards!!!!

found out the only difference in the 008/009 multi diff and the 007 is the outdrives on the multi the 008/009 have a wider spade slot than the 007 but I just used the 007 narrower spades
