The T1R is A very good car, I think it;s the best you can buy for that price (in europe).
It's a bit heavier than A evo 2 so it's a bit slower,
but if your A club racer you don't really need to have A lighter car.

Hey guys, got a problem hopefully someone on here can solve. I have a Evo II with the aluminum from steering knuckles, I need to remove the axle/bone to replace the bone (it is bent) but everything seems locked together.

I tried lightly tapping out he axle, but not luck, it looks like the aluminum is flared out, any suggestions???

Thanks in advance!

Use a very small file to file down the flare, or if you have the right tool, a dremel will be the quickest.

yes, the chassis is quite a big difference. and if you really want that little bit more weight off then go for the FK bulkheads

I don't know precisely how much heavier it is, but you can upgrade the T1R to A FK if you want.
Though you shouldn't forget that there's A pricetag on that!

John, those walls at Mimi's are pretty hard aren't they. When you whack the walls the aluminum tends to mushroom slightly. Place a small file against the flare where the locking clip goes and rotate the axle against the file to remove some of the metal. From experience, I can tell you from experience that you'll need a little more than light tapping to get it out. Replace them with the spring steel axles.

I've screwed a carbon plate upper front bumper brace, but I'm yet to break a medium 3 degree C-hub (which I've been using the whole time I've had the car)

yea ive been running my t1r. just bought a extreme rc chassis for it from marshall havent tried it out yet. waiting for my eccentric hub carriers and fk battery holders.
the t1r itself is VERY nice. (thank you jon,) yea. only things ive broken are c hubs. and one arm but that was a big hit.
i like my t1r. and yea. its fine for me except for the weak chubs. really considering dropping $50 for the tamale al ones. ugh so expensive tho lol. and right now im wondering if i should get some springs or some low ratio pulleys first. i only run stock. and handles nicely i think. sure its not as planted as it might be with the best stuff but its completely doable for me as of now. and im sure you can mill a bit off the bulkheads if you really need to. and replacing the tub chassis to carbon fiber made it quite lighter and a LOT stiffer. shoulda at least bought a stiffer upper deck a long time ago

Question about X-Ray T1:

I'm racing my T1 on carpet with foams, I have diff in front and rear, when I hold one front wheel and hold the spur and turn the other, the diff slips. How much slippage should there be, or should there be any??

Note: I have a TC3 as well and it doesn't slip like that.

Let me know. Thanks.
