I use an 009 EU top deck, an aluminum top deck mount and have all the screws installed in the bottom of the chassis. Seems to help quite a bit.

in addition i am using the aluminum brace on the bottom front of the chassis along with the middle bar between top deck and bottom deck...

has any one used other xray springs on the t2r pro like the 2.6, 3.0 recommended for the carbon fiber chassis?

I guess to me, the biggest thing I am not understanding is that they are using threaded rods instead of turnbuckles.

Other kits, even there cheap RTR ones that other manufacturers sell have turnbuckles and the vehicles are still cheap. They aren't titanium or whatever is popular now, but at least they have something you can turn without having to pulling the rod off.

They will, I just belive you'll need some shims for oneway (at least that's what I remember). Diffs should work without problems as they are the same (just use same diameter pulleys as 008 had 2 different sizes in kit).

i have a multi diff from an 07 in mine , have used it in 1 way mode but now using it in spool mode only thing i found is if u narrow the front width of the car (take the spacers/shims out from the bulkheads) i had to use 50mm drive shafts instead of the 52mm as it tended to bind somewhat
hope this helps

The O07 ball diff (XRA305000) is not the same, the offset is different. The part# for the correct diff is XRY305003 and that fits (008, 009,T2R pro)

Sorry I thought it's the same, we had local driver that said he did fit it into car. Maybe he had diff from 008 and just thought it's from 007

so is it true that the aluminum upgrade parts will over stiffen the car make it more prone to traction rolls and or just not getting the proper grip...what do you guys think?
