Did you hit anything with it??
Also...make sure that the shims are the right sizes.
That all I've got....
I have not even driven the car yet. I suggest everybody check there rear toe in. This might be with all T2's.

Harsh and Juan: I went to Gilroy today for some practice with the T2 using a 19T motor. Guess what ? My average time was a 12.7 with the majority of my times being under 12.9 seconds. Fastest lap time..................12.4 seconds. Looks like we'll be dipping into mod times at Gilroy with our T2's !!!!
See you at the races.

My left rear toe is 1 deg and right is 1.5 deg. My plan was to use .5mm shims on each side to achieve 1.5 deg of toe. I'm actually using .75mm on the left and .5mm on the right in order to ballence it out. Must be a poor mold or something...

Almost the same, just made afew changes to the rear. Dave's set-up is pretty easy to drive at Gilroy. But, a stockton set-up wil be totally different than Gilroy's track.

About the rear toe in...

imho it is a manufacturing tolerances problem of the chassis and/or the bulkheads. Ive tried to twist the rear bulkhead assy and this will have an impact on the rear toe, but I cant get it symmetric. At the x-ray site there are reports as well and at my local track we have seen this issue also. So far there are no official statements from xray regarding this.

Just went on their website. How do you specifiy or know which ones have the countersinking in them?

All inventory was updated with the countersink holes. So if you were to purchase any Touring spur they will include the countersink holes. We have not had a chance to update the pics on the web site yet but new pics will come.

I tried that too and a bunch of other stuff too but nothing worked.
This is crazy! I cant believe X-Ray would send these kits out, So far me,You and a bunch of other people are having the same problem. I mean I know I can shim it out to even it but this is weird because the rear king pins will be on diffrent angles. also one cvd would be in the outdrive more than the other.
The whole thing just pisses me off.

The rear toe is off a whole degree from left to right and everything is shimmed the same on both sides.

I am sure there are alot of drivers out there that have this same problem but just did not check it. I dont know this just sucks..

I run 112 and 114 spurs mostly, and they've been doing the job for both 19t and stock.
Have there been any problems with getting pinions and spurs to mesh with the T2? I know on my FK 05 there are certain combonations that will not allow the two to mesh up. Basically the motor needs to be able to slide towards the back of the car and it cant due to the way the motor plate is designed (cut out). Thanks for any information as I am looking to get the T2.
