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.
kjuliussen's answer is spot on for the bulkhead screw.

If you go up a couple of pages, you'll find that Korgae provided a part # for shims to be used in order to space out the wheels. The other two options are to either use one flanged wheel screw washer inside the wheel hexes to space them out, or lightly shave off .5mm of material from the inside of your front rims (you'll have to remember to do it everytime you put on a new set though).

RC America did not buy out Jaco, they will just be distributing the tires, 1/8 & 1/10 gas and 1/10 & 1/12 electric foams...

If your rear wheel is rubbing just take the inside edge of the rim down a little with your Xacto.

teamgp's answer is spot on with narrowing the front tires with your rounding file when you true them so they don't rub the steering blocks.

This what he is talking about. From Korgae.

For anyone looking to play with the width of the T2 ( or have a issue with the how foams fit the front of the car) I came across this XRAY shim set that works better then planned.

Part # is 96 4030 (Washer S 3.5x12x0.2) the inside diameter perfectly matches the threads on the axles with no slop the outside perfectly matches the hex. Each shim is .2mm thick so it allows you very fine adjustment with width putting one on each side increases the width by 1/2 a mm. 10 shims come to a pack.

Take care

Korgae

Default cvd binding

Hey Guys, Just got my T2 built but was wondering if anyone has had any issues with their CVD's? one of mine binds up when the set-screw is tightened? If there are any Xray/Rc America Reps. on this forum any info would be great.
I've checked the coupling that the set-screw threads into, it has no burrs nor does the cvd itself. when the coupling is inserted into the cvd without the set-crew tightened down it rotates smoothly. The binding happens when the whole thing is put together and the set screw tightened? Thanks in advance-Alvin

As Rocco has pointed out, RCA is JACO's newest US Dist. JACO is very pleased to be working with RCA in distribution of our tires and joint marketing projects.

RCA approached us to include the tires in the T2 box as a gift to RCA's valued customers. RCA & JACO chose to include our most popular compound ( JAC2160 and JAC2156 Double Pink/Orange and Double Pink) the same tire the complete XRAY team used to dominate the Novak race last weekend.

Enjoy the tires, enjoy the car

To the racers in California maybe a good incentive to attend the 2006 ROAR Carpet Nats

Default CVD Problem

I've had the same issue with mine. The problem is part number 305231. I called RCA to get a replacement. I also have a problem with the rear bulkhead on mine though. It appears that a drill bit snapped off in mine where the sway bar is supposed to bolt on. I'm sure they'll take care of it though.

I had the same problem as well and just move the binding cvd to the rear where movement isnt as important. Seems to be fine as there is no binding to the rear suspension at all. I will call RCA for a replacement as well.

I have a question regarding the XRay shocks. Is it common for them to sit right up against the shock tower? I am just used to them having a spacer in between. Any help is appreciated.

My IB3800's were a very tight fit. What I did was sand a little of the rear outer corner battery holder. Then the batteries slid right in and out with no problems.

Hahaha, I ran my car without battery tape, or anything to hold it in but the little braces, and the bulkhead, and it didnt come out while I was runnin. Of course, i didnt really hit anything either. but I did run it on some tile floor and drift with it, that was fun

Default CVD

Hey Peter, Thanks! I'll try to drop by tomorrow. What time are you planning on being there? I'm going through another phase of trying different cars. The T2 looks awesome aside from the little cvd issue-Alvin
