I have my battery setup identical to the saddle pack setup that is reccomended in the manual and is in the picture on the box and in every picture in every magazine.

Matt04, I own both an xray(upgraded to an evo2) and an alex R2 cuda,I like both cars but I like the xray a little more,not as many problems with the xray as their are with the cuda..like eating spur gears(that problem can be fixed but it's going to cost you $90 us)If you want your xray to get out of the corners like a shaft car you get the 1.77 pulley set($30us)I think the Xray is easier to work on,has more radio room on the T1R than the cuda(I really did not like cutting part of the servo's mounting tabs)One drawback on the Xray..saddle packs.but as far as money spent goes the T1R is a screaming deal,the problem with the cuda is striped spur gears,in 3 years racing I think I have striped 1,then the cuda, 1 a day untill I bought the alum shaft mounts,I still strip them just not as often.My choice would be the Xray or the Tamiya evo III.

hi rick,
i know there's 2 holes on the evo 2 layshaft. but i've heard of the plastic nut loosen up sometimes! i'll just gv it a try and add a dab of threadlock on the threads to prevent them loosening up. thanks alot pal.

just curious not meaning to get at anyone, but why are saddle packs an issue? Instead of using another bar you have a piece of wire to connect to the next cell. I make mine real short, not tight but short. That way if I did want to use them in like an associated off road truck they will fit no problem and you dont have to deal with a lot of extra wire.

In my mind the only way to distribute the weight of the items you have to have on the car evenly, (batts, servo, esc, rx) saddle packs are the way to go, I only have the center weight on my car and the car is perfectly balanced side to side. The only reason for the center weight is so that my car is 53 oz.


just my 2 cents on that.

so how much does it cost to convert the T1R into an T1 EVO 2?and does the c hubs on the T1R a composit material like the T1 or is it plastic?

thanks

Snowbird Nationals

Has anyone here raced at the Snowbirds, who has an EVO2? Looking for a good starting setup for stock and 19 turn.

Appreciate the help,

OK, but what are you using to space it on the other side? Normally the oneway takes up that space where as the solid lay shaft comes with a spacer specifically for that purpose. Buying the solid lay shaft is just so much better because of the rotating mass that you are eliminating. that's my .02!

Good point Porche. I've found that the stock batt positions is the way to go. By moving the batts forward or to one side, that will upset the balance of the car.

For you guys that are running the 1.77 gears, did you have to tighten the positions on the rear bulkheads as there could be more slack in the rear belt? Im switching to the new 3mm high speed rear belt. If so, how many did you advance to have a loose belt but not slipping?

devin,

I didnt have to move mine at all. when the car is still it looks as if the belt will rub against the motor, but once you get on power the belt never touches the motor.

I didn't tighten the eccentric hubs either. I did have to purchase a large spur gear so that the motor clears the new pulleys.

Thanks guys. I'll have to see if I can round up a 128 gear as a 124 is the biggest that I have. Are you guys still running around a 7.2-7.5 for a monster stock with the 1.77's?
