Default T1R vs. evo2

Okay-the T1R adjusts the rear toe in from the back of the arm-which is great. The evo2 from the front of the arms!!! Not bad as long as you pull the motor out. So my question is this!!! Will the "feel" of 2 degrees of toe in be the same if you switch from the T1r set-up from the evo2???


if anybody has the T1R already-could you please look in the manual and post the part numbers needed to make the conversion. I just want to do it for convenience!!!

I had taken apart my T1 apart and cleaned everything, car is smooth.

My Evo 2 is just sitting on the shelf for now. I'm only using the Evo 2 for carpet, and the T1 for asfault.

yea, he showed up at one of the parking lot races. He doesn't show up at SoCal Raceway as much anymore. Usually only before a big race to get back in the groove. Is Atomic making it out to the Reedy Race?

Dunno, maybe one of the XRAY drivers in Austin can answer that question for you. Are you going to the paved Nats in N.C.?

Oh sorry, I thought Atomic ran at your track. I'll talk to Ralph. Heard Shreven might make it out. How about you?

No, Ron does not venture to our area very often. I run into him at the carpet track in Shreveport or when I make the trip to his home track.

I am not going to the Reedy race.

Hey,

Do you think Xray will produce the C-Hub suspension arms in aluminium?

I got KO on the weekend, my rear lower arm got snapped and my rear shock exploded... It was a good hit ! All my oil was on his windscreen.

And the bad thing was it was another Xray that hit me.. At least i got his number plate!! hahaha

JBrake-how was Toledo??
The evo2 the rear of the arm is fixed by the aluminum tube. But on the T1r-the rear of the arm is not fixed and it is from there you add or subtract the rear toe-in. I'll post pics so you can see what I mean!!!

Here is the T1R first:

And here is the evo2:



this is the PB rear end, but its the same innner hingepin mounts!!
I also downloaded the set-up book for the T1R and it describes changing toe from the rear.

Hope this clears up my last post.

Can you say, is it summer yet? 3 months of carpet is plenty for me. Ready for some nitro!!!! The rest of the Columbus Area guys did well. Mo finished 2nd behind Cyrul in stock 12th and Switzer finished 2nd in stock Sedan behind Cyrul. But really, was anyone going to beat Josh? I've only ran on 3 carpet tracks but Hobby Stop is by far the largest and has the best "barriers" I have seen yet, real easy on the cars.

I see how you could change toe by using the rear mount, but I don't see how that wouldn't shorten the rear track at the same time. If you put the 3mm clip in the front "permanently" then you could adjust from 0* to 3* of toe in, but the rear track would be (+/-)6mm shorter. I think that is how you are suggesting it would work?

ya, i would guess if you adjusted the toe-in using the front pin mount that would make for a shorter track in rear as opposed to adjusting the toe-in with the rear pin mount which would make the rear track slightly wider.

i agree with ray though i would rather change to the adjustable rear mount instead for convenience, although i am still running the pillowball so no need for me haha.
