not true raven, the evo 2 is XRAY's pride, it is probably the highest quality touring car out now.

If you can get a good deal on a T1 then take it. It will work very well for foam carpet and asphalt. You basically only really need a belt tensioner for the T1. You can always get the c hub conversion for it later. I have both cars T1 and Evo2 and I think the T1 is stiffer and better suited for foam carpet. Trust me you will be happy with a T1, if you can get it for a good price.

It's over $300 better. If you are on a very tight bugget then definately go with the T1R. You can pick one up for roughtly $215. I love mine and it is built like a tank. Besides the T1R's can still out run an Evo 2. It's a matter of how good the driver can drive. Xray can sure make cars the right way.

LOL your T1R doesnt out run my Evo2 on our track!!!!

Either way you cant go wrong. If you buy a T1R and decide you like the carbon fiber chassis and the shock towers etc. you can always purchase them afterwards. If you run on carpet youd be better off with the Evo2. The T1R flexes a bit too much for carpet.

Hello,

Since the T1 was introduced there were 3 versions
the T1, T1 EVO 2, T1 [email protected] FOC (Freedom Of Choice)

T1->EVO2
Same length for all suspension bodies, semi stiff upper deck, some hopups (ie better ball bearings)
EVO2-> EVO2 FOC
The ability to choose the c-hub suspension

The T1R is a T1 EVO2 with c-hub and instead of carbon has some sort of plastic


No matter what you choose you can't go wrong!


Nick

Havent got any myself, but it's quite often that people speak up about how good the Raycer is. Easier to setup and easier to drive fast.

Personally I love the look of the EVO2, but I'm really impressed about the value for money in the Raycer.

from my constant mucking around and frustration found out that the c-hub works well when you require a softer setup that needs to roll a bit(carpet, ashphalt with rubbers), and the pivotball works when you need a stiff setup that doesnt roll much, (high traction ashphalt with foams)

this is the opposite ends of the what the suspensions work with, sometimes there is an inbetween (high traction asphalt with rubbers, c-hubs might work better)
