Team GP - I didn't get an answer from you about the rear uprights. But I'll ask again and then some.

Somewhere on Xrays site some time ago I read that the 1deg rear upright was able to give more cornering speed. Not sure on that but maybe in combination with something else? Could you please clarify?

Also, what is the difference between adding rear toe by shimming the hinge pin mount versus adding rear toe using the Team Tamale uprights?

losirunner: i agree with you.

guys: can anyone suggest a good asphalt set-up for my 05, were running on smooth sealed asphalt and another track where the asphalt is similar to a parking lot's. tanx in advance.

by d way, i believe the instructions for the multi-diff is in the last page of the manual.

Is there any point in buying the Alu Upright rear upgrade for the 05, part no. 303355?

Is it a performance upgrade or just a trick looking part?

You can find my somewhat out-dated analysis in the XRAY Forum. I haven't analyzed this lately, but the team drivers have reported noticing more corner speed when using out-board rear toe-in. This is the main reason why the T2 comes standard with 1 degree of out-board rear toe-in. I'm not sure exactly of the reason for more corner speed. However, from my analysis you'll see that the rear end gains stability throughout the four different phases of a corner (entry, middle-off-power, middle-on-power, exit) with out-board rear toe-in. And with stability and control drivers can enter corners at higher speeds and also get on the gas faster. But don't quote me on that.

Using shims for "in-board" rear toe-in will affect a lot more than just toe. As you shim the rear of the arms out more, wheelbase will be reduced, the rear track width will increase and the entire mechanical flow of the rear arm/shock combination will change. This much of a change may or may not be desired. But in most cases drivers are looking for more of a fine tuning element when they opt to change rear toe.

Default Xray 05

Hi Guys,

Can anyone give me a link or tell me what I need to mount a motor in an 05
(In the way of screws/Hex) is this a std part as I cannot find it in the parts list, nor do they come with the motor (LRP TC 2).

I dont have a shop near me so I have to purchase via web.

Thanks

Dave

I use a washer behind those screws. I am using the .030" Losi washer/shims. PM me your address and I can send you two of the washers.

How do you tell the difference between the std and the opt. 0.75 lower suspension holders?
I think I have a set of 0.75's but see no markings.
Thanks for any help you can give me, so far all my other questions were allready answered before I even had them!

The hinge pin holes are slightly under the center mark. The standard ones are right in the middle of the mount.
