I don't think it is a secret. It's just an inherent feature from the design of the tub chassis.

If you look at the chassis there is a ridge running down the middle of it getting higher the further aft it goes. I would imagine that this is not solid so should promote airflow towards the motor.

Talking Conversion?

Hi Guys, I just got an Xray T1 second hand, I am wondering what parts I need to convert it to the Evo2?
I got the supertune rear shock tower and am waiting for the front tower to come in, I also have the main chassis on order.
I cant fit the rear tower as I only have the standard shocks at the moment. I take it i need to order a set of Evo2 shocks and springs etc......? What is the difference between the Evo2 and the originals shocks?
Also can someone post a pic (closeup) of the way the shocks mount to the towers on the Evo2?
Thanks,
Big Pete.

I think on the EVO2 you can internally change the dampening instead of changing pistons all the time. On the T1 it might be fixed.

The difference between the T1 and EVO 2 shocks are in the length.
The EVO 2 shocks are all the same length, they have keyed pistons and they're made by Xray not serpent. With both types of shock you have the option of running fixed or adjustable pistons.

On the myTSN forum, he states that all details will be released on 14 Feb. However, he did agree with me regarding what the in-line flow cooling system. That it is a molded scoop or derivation of a scoop in the bottom tub to direct air towards the motor.

university_dave :: That is what I saw also. Pretty neat feature provided tiny debris isn't lifted off the track and sucked into the motor vent.

They'll always be debris flowing in...just be sure to clean or brush after every qualifier.

Yeah I know, a motor shim kept me out of the A-main at the mud-bowl in Killeen and my car does not have the tunnel the new tub chassis has.

No, you can fit the ultra-tune shock tower with the old serpent shocks. Use the top row of holes, that's what they are there for. The new shocks use either the middle or lower rows. So you don't have to order new shocks.
I know the new springs fit the rear shocks, and could probably fit the fronts too, but if not then the aluminium spring collets would definitely let them fit.

Which car has the best support in your area? I feel the XRAY is the most durable kit of the three and very open for quick trackside adjustments. The other two kits may require a little more wrenching for some setting changes. I have owned TC3's and liked them very much so I would highly recommend AE. I only had a Losi for a few month and also enjoyed it.

I will vouch for the durability of the Xray. I had 2 big crashes this weekend on Asphalt. The second time after a major hit the car flipped and rolled a few times before landing back on its wheels and continueing flawlessly. This was at high speed (10Turn Mod) at the end of a long straight so it was no light touch. I must admit I was surprised, I expected something to be broken. The TA04R I hit popped a shockie and bent a Universal.
