Default Xray T2 009 setting up

Hi,

Just finished building my XRAY T2 009 EU Edition... what a piece of art !

I'm now ready to set it up according to the book provided with the xray.

But .. I don't have any tool for such purpose.

Would you recommend me to buy all the setup tools ... Hudy .. not Hudy ?

To build the kit up to the book settings you do not need any set up tools apart from a set of vernier's to measure the lenghts of certian bits to get camber / droop right.
But if your are looking to race and to keep a consistant and well handling car i would reccomend buying a set up station, they are invaluable tools for setting the car up and make such a different to the handling when everything is set right.

As for which one, well i run the full hudy set up station and it is fantastic but there are other ones on the market that will do the job just as well

I would recommend the hudy or Integy setup station.....Also Ride height gauge and droop blocks and droop gauge these thing will keep you square at all times.....A MIP or integy tweak station is nice to have in the pit box as some dont like to lug around there set up stations on club nights. Also always have a setup board or a known flat level surface to check ride height droop and all angles with ya at the track......IRS balance buttons are great its a cheap way to get your balance set from left to right.....This essential if you are running lipo......I run the 009 and its ssssaaaaawwwwweeeeettttt.....Where do you run and on what type of surface and what type of tire?

Thanks for the kind replies ! That's really nice.

I was considering getting the Hudy All-In-One Set-up Solution for 1/10 Touring Cars in UK. Do I need other things to get everything correct ?

I plan to run 2S IP3800 35C on my T2 009 EU. I will run on asphalt with rubber (or foam)

Regarding my futur club, this is a video of the track

This looks like the original to a track on VirtualRc. Like this layout alot. More brake than I am used to but the size makes it easier to do. I would run pavement endlessly if I had ready access to this track.

I already have a 9.5T Stock LRP motor... I was considering getting a 6.5T Redline Tekin sensored motor... is it a good idea or should I go for a 5.5T instead ?

Cedric,

Did you need to purchase the LiPo kit in order to allow LiPo packs to fit on your T2'009?

I am hearing mixed things about needing or not needing the LiPo kit from Xray in order to make the LiPo packs work.

Hi Harry,

With the T2 009 EU, there's a lipo conversion bag that's delivered within the package. It's two carbon pieces that make the main piece of the kit higher, but I don't think that's needed.

The lipo carbon tray that you can buy as an option is nice because it secures the lipo really well. The IP 3800 35C fits perfectly on this chassis

Hope you understand my english words

In other terms the Lipo kit is nice to have I have mixed it with the lipo conversion bag on the kit, it's very nice.

Perhaps it would help if I actually start building the kit...

Thank you for the information and your English is just fine mate!

Cheers!

The Hudy all in one has eveything you will need....The Irs balance buttons are great though you might want to check those out if you dont mind carrying your setup station around you wont need an additional tweak station as the hudy allready has one with it.....I would purchase the asphalt top deck and the ecs EU drives these will give the spool a little more steering and a little less chatter......Get some different weight oils and springs and sways and your ready to go....Hope you can understand my english
