I guess everyone has their likes and dislikes about a car but I have both cars and can tell you that I like the BD better. For me it's an easier car to drive and to dial in. I turn faster and more consistent laps then with the T2. I haven't really had problems with tweaking. I put a little threadlock on the upper deck screws and tightened them down a little snugly and I've been good to go. I like the T2 also but I don't have as much confidence in it. I feel my car has performed inconsistently at times. The car will be good then get loose all of a sudden then be good again. It was like that with my 05 car too. That was just my experience. I'm actually looking to sell my T2

I have a speedtech spool and it make the car viberate to all get out in the front of the car. Everytime I steer the car left or right it viberates the car till I think its going to fall apart. Is this what the aluminum or these titanium spools going to do. That is why I was asking what everyone is running. Im unhappy with the speedtech spool and rather have the titanium spool, I just dont want it to do the same thing as the speedtech spool.

That vibration is caused by your universals, not the spool. That's where your problem is. You're gonna feel that with whatever spool you use until you fix that.

Are you using the stock BD universals up front? If so, the first thing you want to do is replace the pin that connects the the bone to the axle. The stock pin is too short and will come loose and break during a run. The pins used by the Barricuda work great. I haven't had a problem since buying those. Speedtechrc.com carrys them. Some people use piano wire too. I just don't remember the size. When that pin starts to come loose it can cause vibration too. Sometimes it's hard to get a universal not to bind. I've had universals be very smooth until the grub screw was tightened. I really struggled with it. I wish I had a fix for you. Mine worked okay from the start but I just bought the TiR universals which work even better.

on the front cvd's the pin can and has caused me problems. you can use #53 drill blank and make your own. drill blank stock is approx $3 ea or less and you can get several out of each piece. if you can not get drill blanks a #53 drill works by cut the pieces out of the solid portion you only get two pieces per drill though.

also use a good high temp grease when assembling these - go to pepboy or a car parts shop to get a high temp wheel bearing grease.

put some of the grease in the spool and dogbone when installing in the car this will help eliminate some chatter and binding as well.

hope that helps you out
