The main differences between the T1 and the Evo 2 are the chassis (evo 2 has 12 battery slots, is more flexible, has adjustable bulkheads. Some small differences include steering with more ackerman choices, slightly shorter suspension arms and chubs if you get the FOC kit. All parts are interchangeable so you can add what you want and make the car suit your purposes. I think we posted all this before, what more do you need to know?

we tried it once where we race... but problem is there will be more weight on one side than the other... the kits designed to have side by side batts has the motor as a counterweight on the other side, while the xray has the motor at the center... this posts a problem since the side opposite the batts would be lighter... its like what they did with the atlas kit... difficult to set-up...

I made an editable setup sheet for the Xray Evo2 with c-hub suspension. I will take a few seconds to load, because I didnt vectorize all the graphics on the xray setup sheet but it works perfectly. Here's the link to the setup sheet:

if you have the full version of adobe acrobat you will be able to save these setups to your hard drive. But, if you only have the reader, you can only print out a copy of the setup sheet that you just made.

well most of us place our saddle packs at the back, but a few racers did your batt configuration... that is the configuration of the old corally cars...

well basically your config gives you more front traction...

Moving the weight more forward with also reduce the amount of weight transfer to the front during corner entry. This is a bit counter intuitive, but when there is more weight on the front to start with, there is less to transfer to the front.

So moving the bats forward is like running more positive rear droop.

Personally I have the batts all the way back, with about 1.5 mm droop using the "hold the tires down and lift the chassis" method. (about page 179 or so has a description)

I find that it is very sensitive to droop changes - I may move one side up one or two slots to see what it does. Then again I might just add a bit more rear toe to reduce the corner entry twitchyness.

I also haven't tried to move the rear wheels all the way back yet. Probably the easiest to change so I think I'll try this next.

Sorry - just thinking as I'm writing.

Default Xray Carpet Setup

I am getting an Xray for Christmas and was wondering if anyone has a setup for indoor carpet. Also, should I use the adjustable or locked pistons?

Thanks for the info.

Use the Lopez setup on page like 178 or 177 under PUCHO and make changes from there.
