At this point in time I disagree strongly with that statement. I've been faster today with my T1R than I've ever been with the Evo2. Got down under the magic 13s lap barrier for the first time ever today.

Alot of the choice of car depends on track conditions, weather, driving style. What may work really well in one location, may not at another.

I think both are equal in competativeness, so why would you spend over $300 for an evo 2 when you can buy a t1r for close to $220.

You can run side by side saddle packs but to run them side by side all on one side you need the long 6 cell battery strap.

I ran side by side packs when I first got my Evo2, the balance of the car was all out of whack and it really hindered performance. I switched to saddle packs and haven't looked back since!

The Evo2 really wasn't designed to be used with side by side packs because the location of the motor is in the center as opposed to completely on one side (where all the electronics are).

Running saddle packs are a must.

saddle packs are the only way to go on either car. If xray didnt think that was the case, dont you think on the T1R that you could run either? Plain and simple saddles are the best way to help keep your car balanced.

I prefer the c hubs over the pivot balls personally. I feel that the car just seems to drive better for me with the c hubs

I think for $50 bucks the composite chub is a no brainer.

Downstop Question?

I am just curious about something here. With say a TC3 the droop is usually set at 6 front 4 rear. But with the Xray it is 2 front 4 rear. The XXX-S if I remember correctly is pretty close to the same as the TC3.

The question is why is the Xray the opposite of these? More droop in the front and less in the rear. Instead of less droop in the front and more droop in the rear?

Can't argue with the way the car works this way, just curious as to why this is.

Later,

There are many reasons, but the safe answer is it's what the R&D team came up with as a starting point.
