Default How is the T1R

Guys,

I just got my T1R and havent assembled it yet. Still havent decided whether to assemble it or just sell it to my bro. How does it compare to shaftdrives like the Evo3 and R2. Will this be competitive in Stock or Spec class. I know for a fact that the Evo3 and R2 have very free drives trains. Will the T1R have drive train disadvantage or is there a way to free it up, or is it free enough as is? This will be my first belt driven car if I decide to take it.

I want answers from guys who arent biased with belt or shaft!

The Xray is very free as a belt car, the new pulleys help that even more and change the internal ratio.

The car is extremely free right out of the box. It took me a couple of months to get my FTTC3 to free up. I didn't have to do anything to the XRAY.

I race mine in stock and it is extremely competitive. If anything it is a lot more efficent then the majority of the cars I race. It is only going to get better as well. Plus it is box stock, no option parts on it yet.

Later,

I ran my first Xray box stock for several months before the optional parts became more readily available.

I have purchase that shock tower when it came out. I only been running my T1R for a short time, and it's stock out of the box, (except the 1.77 pulley set), the car is just as fast with the other cars out there. Everyone is knowing my car is fast, now I just have to keep in pace with the faster guys on the line.

Guys I have a question about tires and inserts. Just ran my Evo 2 Sat. and it ran well. I do however think I may have been off alittle on tires, and inserts. Track is asphalt, around 100 degrees track temp, medium tight layout, fair traction, no additives to the track. What tires and inserts would you look at running preferably Sorex tires but not a must. What insert could I run to help eliminate the air gap. Thanks for any info. Kevin.

Why do you want to eliminate the air gap?

I guess coming from offroad I want the tire to feel full. That may be a better explaination. It feels like the tire can roll over a bit and usually that speels trouble. any ideas or am I way off. Thanks Kevin.

Hi Kevin, the setup b/w offroad and onroad are drastically different. Just because you completely fill in the tire in offroad, that it will work in onroad. It actually is the opposite. As for the tire rolling, it is extremely difficult to notice. In fact, you first notice it when you pull the car off and look at the tires. If your car feels like the tire is rolling over, it may be the car or the setup.

The tire needs an air gap. That is what gives the car traction.
