So, you can see I'm lost.

Anyone want to help?
Anybody else want to help?

aviaar-did you get my reply to your PM about joneser? hes cool!!

Anyways-I ran the T1R on carpet when the Evo2 FOC was the hot ticket. It will be JUST FINE_dont let anyone deceive you. If your not within 0.7 or so per lap of the fast group at your track-then the FK is just another $120 yu could spend on a servo or speed control.

Also-dont worry about the long vs short arm for now because everyones got spare arms in bucket fulls in there parts boxes and will sell-em to you CHEAP!! And the arms dont break-so you'll only need a spare front and spare rear arm. All the c-hubs, hubs, etc are universal between all c-hub Xrays!!!

Now-if your on that edge of being a regular A-Mainer and need that extra 0.2 or 0.3 per lap-by all means-unnload your well used T1R for cheap and buy the FK!!! Or whatever the new updated version is by then.

aviaar -

rayhuang is right if your still learing, hitting pipes, etc. the newer car will not make much if any differance for you. All the minor improvements and ligheting are to give you that extra thenth of a second, and will never make up for any mistakes you may make on the track. My advise is if you drive consistantly quick clean laps pick up the new car otherwise stick with what you got and focus on your driving.

As far as largest spur gear, I've seen the mod guys run the stock 93T. Going large will give you more torque, and will push the motor lower in the chassis. But the car's drivetrain won't spool up as fast as a lower tooth spur gear of the same pitch.

Hi Neil
How do you like the BMI product?
I just pick up the Fk xray and who's got the best set up for carpet track (rubber tires)?

The BMI chassis gives the car more steering, more so than the stock chassis. Sorry, I don't have a carpet setup.

aviiar....let me add my two cents to that question. As I told you, this is not my kit but I did own a t1r and did run it on carpet. The car was every bit as fast as the evo2 was and was easier to drive. I sold it because I did not need two cars that were so close. If you are a reletively new racer the t1r is an awsome car. Way easier to drive than a tc3 and still fast. I just built and raced the factory kit for the first time. It is awesome! by the time you get the diff and the spring steel axles you are approaching 400.00 so its a tough comparison. There are some HIGH bite situations that the T1R may not be as good as the evo2 or the factory team but if you are a new racer, you wont notice the differece. If you are racing outdoors then the T1R is a great choice. Money not being an issue then the Factory kit is the choice.
