Default The difference

Would there be any major diference in chassis performance if I upgrade grom T1Evo2(2002 y.) To T2 007 or 008 ? Becauce I can`t seem to get some replacement parts for it, or it becomes too expensive to change those old type CVD`s. Only thing why to choose Xray is the local spare part support(somewhat at least).
Would it improve anything?

I can't say I've seen anyone with that car, but just the fact that you can get parts for a current gen chassis should be enough weight to switch. In theory the car should be better, but there are a lot of factors that influence whether or not YOU will be faster with a new car.

1. Worn out bearings, new bearing directy through dealer - out of stock
2. Disbalance
3. Heavyweight 130 above minimum
4. CVD`s
5. Battery slot incompatibility, too big cells, old slots are just too small. Already filed it much away.
6. Rear end body mounts too high. Impossible to lower even more.
7. Lack of spare part support.
8. Amost no setup support(no guidance, my setuping skills only)
9. Pivot balls durable as hell.

Depends on category you're racing. I liked T1 Evo2/FK04 for stock category. We've got guy at races that use T1R with 19t motor and it perform quite nice. I had almost all Xray cars since T1Evo 2 (I only didn't have FK05) and I belive that change to T2 series will be good choice. If you can - buy 008 it's bit better than 007 as you've got anti-rollbars in kit and also composite spool (if you're racing on rubbers)

what is about this Xray multiflex thing? They seem to have it on 06-07, but somehow is pushed away in 08and 09. Did Xray somehow made a mistake or something?

if you can get parts, the cyclone is a better choice for rubber than xray.
Plus, if you use the hard front c-hub and knuckle, it is bullet proof. I havnt broken a single one in over a year plus their is a truckload of pro setup sheets/support.

But if all the guys at ur track run the newer xrays, by all means go for it.

Currently we have two people who run Xray 1/10, but all 1/18 are xrays so I can just get parts easyer through Xray dealer. I suppose we have 3 cyclones one with robitronic, Pro4, Kyosho TF5.

I would go with the cyclone then, it is easy to get parts online, and is more proven for rubber tire

How can it be more proven for a rubber tire? Other stuff besides setting up the car is driving it, and that just sounds as a cheap ad to me. And I think Xray has version for rubbers and foams. For me all the TC`s are same. Only matter of color preferance and local support.

I've been using the evo2 in vta and it seems to work great. Only ever broken a ballstud. Very durable.

I just got an fk04 to give a shot. Seems like parts are easier to get for this car even though it's close to the evo2. In a couple weeks of looking around I picked up 2 complete cars,2 new chassis and enough parts to build at least one more with spares on top of spares. All for less than you will find a nice T2 with no spares.

I like running the older cars, people are always asking what they are.

Not to mention I'm cheap.
