In cali we run alot of ashpalt and we need the one way or muti-diff but we are looking at $60.00 not $40.00 if you run stock carpet rubber tires a one is faster

The man in question is on the Team and has done lots and lots of practice and R&D.

Do you not remember when the xxx-s came out and Francis and those guys race a oneway and spools in the xxx-s for a while? To each his own. How many setup sheets have you copied and then have a car that handles like crap. Most people will have to alter any pro drivers setup sheet to fit his own driving style. Think outside of the box, if it weren't for that, we would still be drving pan cars.

I ran a oneway on carpet with my CMG a few years ago and it was really fast and easy to drive. So, yes I do believe it can work. I also tried the stiffer rear spring trick, and he is right, it transitions much faster through the cicanes and kinks.

I also never said anyone was wrong, you did. To each his own.

This whole argument has been beat to death on the FK05 thread. Does it really need to be brought here to the T2 thread as well?

The man in question is sponsored by Xray...but not as a team driver, rather as factory support...Guy will openly and honestly tell you that himself.

The One-way setup and testing is a project that he is working on. The information uncovered in this project may not be for everyone, he is just providing it for those who do wish to experiment.

Personally, I am more interested in standard setups that will directly apply to the kits as received by the consumer, however, I am not going to try and bash or discredit Guy as he has put lots of hard work into the project.

Thanks Chris P, that's what I was trying point out. I know his situation with Xray very well, and I didn't mean to imply that he was a factory driver.

I really appreciate those who have spoken on my behalf.

However, I would rather take all the heat myself and provide any response (from a technical perspective) when necessary. Please just carry on the informative conversations concerning the T2. The less said in response to those who disagree with my posts, the better it will be for other readers.

No setup sheets just yet, but if you look at the previous page I posted the setup Dumas and Blackstock among others were running...

Just curious. When you guys built your kits is anyone using a little dab of loc-tite on the screws that go into the aluminum pieces?

Because with my FK'05 I had a slight problem with screws coming loose. Like the one's underneath the chassis that screwed into the bulkheads.
