There are alot of bits out there to do the job, and there are many sizes and degree angles. Lowes sells the bit that i bought for 10$, its an 85 degree bit, shiny silver in color, 1/2 inch drive, and it does NOT have a centering drill bit. Its very sharp and can do the job by hand, although a drill will make the job easier... the bit is sharp enough to ruin the gear with the drill. Your preference though. Just go slow. As stated earlier, ill add pics tomorrow when i get back from work.

2 questions..

-How is everybody running there battery wires over the top deck or through the middle? Which way is less likely to hit the belt.

-Also I was going to buy a new digital servo. Can anybody reccommend a good high speed one. Preferably one that mounts easily on the T2 and does not hang over the edge.. Thanks..

I have had my KO servo for 3-4 years. They make great servos.

Go under the upper deck and use the battery brace to hold the wires down. I'm still wondering how I'll get my GTB wires and where I'll mount the big cap now that the belt goes over the upper deck. Anyone have a GTB mounted yet?

I run my wires under my top deck, no chance of it hitting the belt that way, and looks neat and tidy.

Futaba low profile servo is what i run, nice and small and the PT fits on the end

Hey guys, I raced my t2 for the first time today. After about 2 packs of practice It was dialed like my fk05 was.

The biggest difference I saw is the rear wheel isn't lifting... I always had to run anti-dive with the fk05 on high traction carpet. now I had pro-dive and the rear wheel wasn't close to lift. I'm in love. The drive train got even freeier after the day

Oh yeah just so you know, I tried some schumacher MI2 c-hub on the car and they fit very well. I was scared to break it so I had to find some parts. Just need to add a set screw for the lower pin, and the metals bushing fit perfectly. the knucle sit a little less than 1mm higher but I guess it would be better than nothing. they have some 6 deg too

You cannot expect Xray to build a car to fit every servo on the market and fit every stlye of foam tire. Very simple , less than a minute fix, and the parts are included to space things for you. Nothing extra to buy.

I think alot of guys are here just to complain...shut up and race.

Team GP,

Thanks for all of your tiips....went smooth...

Kevin Smith
Anytime.
