I wonder if the racer car will perform similarly to the c-hub evo2.

Looks like a tub chassis on the new car?? wonder if it will be as stiff as the T1 or possibly stiffer??? HMMMM...... I know the Tamiya tub cars (TB/04) are stiffer but heavier than their plate brothers....... Also is the EVO2 that much better than the EVO1??

Will the c-hubs and carriers from any other car fit the EVO c-hub arms??? And can the arms be bought seperately?? Don't get me wrong I love the looks of the X-Ray cars, but prefer to shy away from pivot balls, and don't really want to spend a ton on the conversion if I decide to get the car.......

Yes. I think the EVO2 is better than the EVO1.

the c-hubs are great...I was lucky enough to get a used twice ran EVO2 w/c-hubs for $330.00.

RC- can you please explain why you think the evo2 is better, and since you you have both cars, can you tell me if the c-hubs look like they are interchangable between the x-ray and TC3....

Hello Impactplayr,
just thought I'd give my opinion oon the 2 cars.
I suppose in general one would hope that the second version of a car is better than the first...otherwise why would you bother buying it..
In my opinion as far as the actual performance goes there would be little to no difference... There are though, a few design Improvements in the Evo 2 that make good sense.
For a start the adjustable cams in the bulkheads that allow you to adjust belt tension.. This is a good improvement...
Secondly the shocks on the Evo 2 are a better design because the shafts are keyed rather than having a thread for the piston to screw on to... The threaded pistons on the Serpent shocks are supposed to be prone to stripping...
Finally the chassis design allows for more battery placement options which is quite handy as I have found..
There are other minor design differences in the Lower arms and more shock positions drilled in the towers etc..

In my opinion though, there would be nothing seperating them on the track.
I would suggest if you have an Xray T1 just buy the Evo 2 Parts next time you have to replace something... they are totally interchangeable.. For Instance if you have to buy a new chassis get the Evo 2 one or if you break your front lower arm just buy a pair of the Evo 2 arms and replace them both..
You probably already know this but I'm just elaborating on my Initial points..

Cool now all I need to know about is the C-hub interchanability and the c-hub arm availability...LOL

The more I think the closer I feel to getting and EVO1....... which seems a much better deal to me, right now......

It is better only because the original T1 is no longer available!

I woudl agree with Steevo comments on simply upgrading. The first thing I did with my Evo 2 is to junk the flex upper deck and install the ole one from the T1!

I like the ultra-flex deck.

the C-hubs on the Xray and TC3 are not interchangable. the hingepin on the Xray is thicker..about 3mm..and on the TC3 is about 3/32in.

Not only that, the TC3 c-hubs are smaller and won't fit the larger Xray steering block.

Well hopefully the T1R will come out in the magical $150-$200 range, I think the T1R w/ C/F topdeck and towers could possibly be the hot set-up...... I may just wait until the racer comes out......

IMPACTPLAYR...if you're going to spend $200.00 for a sport model... you can pick up a full graphite T1 on ebay for about the same price. I've seen EVO2's go for under $250.00 loaded with options.

Well I can pick up a T1 EVO1 NIB for $199 why would I goto ebay??? Besides look at the picks the only real difference is the composite c-hub suspension (which I want if I do get an X-ray) and the composite tub chassis, topdeck, f/r shock towers......

Hopefully the sport version will fall closer to the $150 range ........ I am still undecided, I have to pick up my G+ first.....

Wait for the T1R, you will be happy you did and you know you paid for an excellent car and the engineering that went into it.
