there is no "official" conversion, so there are no instructions. You could use the factory team instructions. they will be pretty close. go to www.teamxray.com and download them. that would be the quickest way to resolve your problem

Our shop gets all our Xray parts through Horizon Hobby with no problems at all. If your local shop orders from Horizon then you are fine.

Default distribution

You guys are jumping to conclusions. There is going to be a distributor that handles it. I am surprised it was not announced but lets just say that he is someone of note within Team Xray. I am sure he will do a better job then Serpent did.

Default Rear-end/handling question for Evo2

To keep the rear end from sliding out coming out of the turn, what would the steps to correct this action? I'm looking for steps, in progression, to correct the problem [what would I look to adjust or change first, and it that had no or ill effects, what would adjust or change next, so on and so on]?

Talbot's Hobbies in San Mateo (just a few miles down the peninsula from you) carries parts for the T1FK. You can also order them online at http://h1071209.hobbyshopnow.com/pro...e.asp?page=XRA

read the booklet and find what setup works best for you not someone else.

Thanks. Just looking for suggestions since I went from -2degree toe to -1degree looking for less friction/more forward speed. I'm at -1degree camber but haven't really put the caliper to the foam tires to look for uneven wear yet.

My RR loves rear toe in -3degrees and front toe out, +2degrees. Coming from a brief stint in nitro, I was trying to avoid overdoing the toe in, and looking for alternatives.

Thanks for the time! ^5

I know, I know. I'm looking for the easy way out, aren't I!

Seriously though, looking to see what others do and compare the thought process [and experience] behind it.

Thanks!

the difference between 1 and 2 deg toe in is a lot on the xray. 1 degree does make the ray quite twitchy. josh and some of the xray boys only go to 1.5. so you may have too little toe in the rear. also at mike, i beleive that most are running between 2 and 2.5 camber in the rear. I have been using joshes carpet nats setup and i believe it is at 2. I am certainly not the fastest out at mike's. chekc with gary or larry or jeff. I believe that those guys are running close to 2 on camber as well.
