Default Xray T2 009 with 304900 Gear Diff

Hi All,

Recently bought an xray gear diff (part number 304900) for my T2 009, the sites selling it including Amain say that it should fit but after assembling it I've tried fitting it and it won't go in. Seems like the original belt is too short.

Is there a different belt that needs to be used to fit it?

I believe the T2'009 in stock form used 34t gears for the front and rear diffs. There's a conversion to get the T2'009 using 38t diffs for the front and rear, but I'm afraid you bought the wrong diff.

Spec-R makes a 34t gear diff for the Xray T2 line.

Default re t2

I think from memory you can fit a 38t spool and different belts to use the x ray gear diff. unless you like oil everywhere stick with the xray diff spec r is heavier and leak.
look up option parts for t2 on xray website. pretty sure may even be t3 belts so any spares you can still use if you upgrade.

True, all you'd need is the front diff to be 38t, as well as get the correct belts.

Didn't think it'd be that simple...

Once you change the pulleys to 38t, the belts are exactly the same as the T3 and T4's

I run a '009 as my wet car with those pulleys so I can use the same transmission spares as my T4

Sorry to hijack your thread, but does this diff fit in the '008? Running with the 38t pulleys...

If you don't have clean bearings, good transmission and a perfect car, trust me when I say this...someone else does.
