The x-ray spurs seem to fit on the car really well .

Hey, just wanted to say My T1R front belt was a bit tight I adjusted it properly and it worked great. I've got the 1.77 pulleys and have been running the layshaft oneway so I had to run the 2.125 pulleys and the chassis worked well but not as fast? So needless to say I put the 1.77 pulleys back in and was on top of the qualifiers and would have won the A if not for that last BIFF. So if there is a question the 1.77 are a better choice (less drag=FASTER) I like Robinson spurs and just drill the extra holes? where do you find the RW spurs? I reside in the Midwest so finding out about the hot stuff is a little slow to arrive? However I'm really looking forward to my next 5 min. TEAM X-RAY

Xraycer, the 1.77 pulley set is no doubt better than the stock pulley set. The car is faster with it.

I have mixed feelings on the pulley's. For carpet racing on foam tires I "think" the 2.125 pulley's might be a little better. Seems to provide better acceleration. The 1.77 pulley's seem to provide a little more top end. The drive train definitely free spins a hair better with the 1.77's,but the 2.125's seem a little quicker on small tight carpet tracks.

Either way is a win-win situation. It's a good car.

Kimbrough spur gears fit the solid layshaft the best. With the RW or other brands the holes do not line up properly to get all three screws in.

RW Spur gears are distributed by Schumacher:

The original equipment spur gear (at least those supplied on the original T1) are Kimbrough. If you look carefully at the gear you'll see the name.

Robinson Racing super mach spurs will fit but only with modification to the spur, you must drill out the other two holes, I used a reamer and it worked perfectly. The spur has absolutely no runout in it.

I run on a tight carpet track and everyone running x-ray's say the 1.77 pulleys are faster.

See if you can drive their car and tell for yourself. It's hard to tell for speed, but I can assure you, it loosened up my drivetrain a lot.

Proud winner- what type of layout do you run on ? It's almost time for our carpet season to start. Just kinda curios?

RBLove- I'll probably do the same and try both pulley sets. What spring and oil set up do you use?

Anyone having a hard time getting 5mm ridehieght on their EVO2 with 60mm foam tires and the Foam Front Shock Tower? My Spring Collar is all the way at the top and I am at 6.5mm and cannot go lower unless I use the droop screw to compress the shock.

Med Front Arm
6degree Carrier

0 toe-in

Hard Rear Arm
Outside Camber on carrier
Stock Camber on Bulkhead
AE 40 Weight 2 holes Violet
Middle on Arm
Middle on T!R Rear Tower
-1 degree toe-in
-1 degree camber
Med-tight Rear Diff

24/128 Reedy 8x1 KR
Purple Orange Front Tire
Purple Rear Tire
61mm Tire to Start with
no droop screws used...in the arm just backed off on front and rear.. Front has no play on spring and collar, Rear has about 2mm of play beteween Spring and Collar.

XRaycer

On carpet with foams:

Losi 50 weight front and rear
Typically used 33lb magenta colored X-Ray spring in front and the 30lb pink X-Ray springs in the rear. If an EVO car I like the front sway bar, but on a T1R I liked the car without. I do however like the traditional bar style sway bar better than the blade. It is the bar they came out with for the Raycer.
