That sounds like an interesting project. Let us know how it works.

It would probably only benefit someone running on carpet with foam tires. And even more to the point-in very high traction weekends only (i.e. 60 entry weekends). I am sure the regular evo2 chassis set-up will be more than stiff enough for everyone else. I am also worried that parts breakage will go up as the normally flexible bottom deck will no longer absorb crash impact as well.

So this would be a stick pack chassis only? It would be nice see it go down the middle, but i don't believe that is possible with the belt. How would you secure the batteries?

I don't think you could make the car any stiffer than it is with the original T1 chassis and top deck. I can't twist it at all when I set it up like that.

Acer bearings are in the xray...speed bearing change too, I changed every bearing in the car in 45 minutes. Car is very smooth now, hopefully it will sound like a little jet engine while the car is going around the track Sunday will be the test.

Devin,


I dont know why-but my evo2 is whsiper quiet untill its topped out and then it makes the coolest sound. I high picthed whoosh and whine that gets louder and louder down a long straight. Its so cool!!!

my buddy who has a brand new evo2 fro some reason is much louder. Maybe its the RW spur I run and he runs a Kimbrough???

But I would hate to go back to my trusty old TC3 just cause I'd miss how quiet this drivetrain is!!!

Ray, I have noticed that sound is made in the mod class, but not so much in the stock class. I think it's due to the high RPM motors/bearings where stock runs bushings with more friction. I have a friend that ran a 6 turn in the xray and it sounded awesome going around the track. He's running 48 pitch too. Has there ever been a study between 64 pitch sounds and 48? I'm running kimbrough gears due to the solid alum mid shaft, it only has 3 holes instead of the stock 6. That limits the type of gears that you can run. What bearings are you running ray? I am really looking forward to trying out these acer bearings and my Reedy Ti 11 turn double! (though I think I might race stock class this sunday..not mod)

my xray is usually whisper quiet as well in stock right up until the last section of the straight. maybe your buddies belts just need to get a few runs on them?

i love those RW spurs, some of the best ive seen. gotta love em!

The RW spurs are nicely machined. I use to always run them. Now I run the kimborough gears because they are stay quiet for a much longer time than the RW's. Once the delrin wears thin on the RW, the noisier they become. The kimborough's material are so much more quiet except for it being out of round due to the cooling process.

The white pulleys aren't available yet in the US. When they are, go to your LHS and have them ordered. The Xray site maybe selling them online too.

Just wait another 2 weeks or so. They should be readily available soon. Oh, and they're not "white" anymore. The production version just like the other XRAY pulleys.
