Well the car is built. I didn't waste anytime.

Maybe I missed this somewhere but when I put my Jaco 2 stage foams on it. In the front they rub the steering knuckles. Is there a way to shim it out?

Oh Yea thanks RCamerica and Jaco for the new foams. What a great way of marketing by Jaco..

Someone told me that RC America bought out Jaco. Is that true. Also lets not crash our new T2's since spare parts wont be ready for another couple weeks. Unless you were smart enought to buy two of them for $369 each.

Anyone else have one of their quick roll center adjusters missing the threads? Luckly a friend at the track had a 3mm tap handy and was able to fix it.

I got mine built up yesterday and had a couple question areas. I have places where the tires rub on the suspension, both front wheels rub on the steering blocks in the back where the tie rods hook to them. and the left rear hits on the bottom of the shock eyelet (with shock in outer mounting hole).

I also noticed that on the right rear bulkhead, that one of the top deck screws sticks down about 1mm through the top into the area that the battery is supposed to sit and it makes it very hard to get the battery in and out of the slot with that screw sticking down.

That being said, the car went together very well like all xray cars do. I didn't have the problem with the spur gear screws hitting the brace with the PRS gears that some are talking about.

I hope to have it on the track this weekend.

If you read the building manual. you will see that it should be a 5mm screw there not 6mm wich used on the rest of the top deck..
