EVO2 does come with the same composite plastic arms/hubs/c-blocks. For any rubber tire racing I would recommend the T1R. If your weather conditions are EXTREMELY hot I would get the EVO2. The guys at the Nats switched to the EVO2 and their cars were much better. It was about 100 degrees there.

If your weather and track temp is not crazy hot I would get the T1R. More traction and saves money........

Default t1r and carpet

Would you guys think that the t1r with the solid top deck would be stiff enough?I tried it and it seemed more then stiff.At least as stiff as an evo2.

The car is just as stiff as the Evo2 with a force applied to the car front to back. But the car is more flexible than the Evo2 with a transverse force (twist), even with the graphite solid top deck.

Neil,

I run carpet/foams only. Mainly TRC and Jaco.

TRC:
Plaid front 26mm
Cyan front 26mm
Lime front 26mm

Magenta rear 30mm
Tan rear 30mm
Purple rear 30mm
I often cut the rear widths down to 28 and 26 depending on track and conditions.

Jaco:
Purple/Orange front 28mm

Purple rear 28mm
Double pink rear 28mm

Paragon traction compound or Jack the Grippa by Corally. Prefer Paragon when allowed.

RBLove,

What procedure do you use to cut down your widths. I have some 28mm that need to be cut down to 26's. Do you slap them on your lathe, spin and cut through with the bit? Or use an external cutter, xacto or someother thing? Im curious as I need to do this. I have a Hudy with carbide bit.

Default HELP!!!

Hey guys,

I am building my third generation of Xray for testing and racing!!! This one is a original Xray T1, but with the 1.77 PUlleys. Here are my two very important questions.


1. Is the Center Steering POst of the Old style steering different than on the EVo2?? One looks offset and the other looks centered.

2. The old T1 front bulkheads do not have a belt tensioner eccentric. Anybody know what setting it is as comprared to the EVO2 bulkheads?

Thanks in advance,
Ray


This car is going to be PB front and c-hub rear. Hope its fast in stock class on foam/Carpet!!!

Ray, on the original T1 with the non-flex top deck the bearing insert is offset to the left. With either of the flex top deaks the insert hole is larger and centred, and the bearing holder itself is larger and offset.
Can't help with the other.

Ray,

The steering hole may be centered, but I "believe" the plastic cup that hols the bearing is off set??????

As for a set up with pb? I "think" at Cleveland I ran the same piston and spring, no sway bar, and car was money. I can try to help you Tuesday. Between myself, Pulfer, Junior, maybe Ian, and you we have no excuse but to be DIALED...........

Devin,

I put the tire on my truer and spin it in the opposite direction, then I use a utility knife to make the cut. I use the utility knife over an exacto because it is much stiffer and does not flex. IF the exacto starts to flex you're screwed

Been there... did that

Had a tire that was 28mm then down to 18mm then back to 29mm then down to 22mm then back to 25mm then a big slash all the way to the outside wall

Be very careful

Maybe it's not a good idea to try to cut it that way. Wouldn't it be better to just get the rims in that size?
