Do you have a part number for these or where I can get them and what size would work best?

Any suggestions? i looking for a foam that would fit the car, i dont mind cutting to make it fit for now.. Id rather run the car with a bumper rather than breaking parts

I really liked the car and am happy with the quality. Cant wait to see my time improvements over my old car :

I fount a 112 on my tool box and was wondering what pinion should i start with. I have from 30 to 40 but i think i need to get some for this car for it might need the 20 - 29 range... the track is 92 x 48 to be exact. Im running a stock 19t (nothing special just regular motor) if i get a 116 or 118 spur what gear do u recommend to start with?

thanks in advance,
Ryan
I read that one of the guys used a corrally rdx bumper and modded it a little to fit. I think the 05 would work with two new holes drilled in it too.

Thanks for the advice.. my bad i forgot to mention that i will be running rubber.. cs-22 is the spec tire for this comming race...

Im currently using the stock rubber setup from the manual... and try to read more setup for rubber from this forum... and a checkout the Xray forum for setup ideas. Im not thats good of a driver so i will try and play around with the setup.. if it doesnt work maybe copy some ideas from here.

Time to look for RDX bumper....

thanks
Ryan

I'm not sure on the gearing for rubber tires. You might also want to post the question on the XRAY T1|T2 forum.

thanks for the advice, I signed up to the forum when i bought my T2, but the forum never sent me an activation email. I've emailed the webmaster twice and had no reply... My account is still sitting on the system, inactive, I just cant get in until I'm verified with the activation email. if your chummy with any of the admin/mods, perhaps you could mention this for me?

my username on the xray forum is "James Mandy"

cheers.

Steve, you should set up a comission based referral system

6mm hubs
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...nid=269&id=823

5mm Hubs
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=269&id=5106

4mm Hubs
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...nid=269&id=824

You can get the part number by removing TAM from the speedtech part no.

The car is put together and I was so excited to run it this past Sunday at SSH but with that snowstorm we had there was no way my beemer was going to make it to the track. The car absolutly is the worst in the snow. Rear wheel drive and Michelin pilot sport tires dont mix.

I will be racing it this Sunday though. I just better run clean lines and stay away from troube as I have NO spare parts. And from what I hear we will not see any for about another 3 weeks..
