All,

I'm sure XRAY HQ will investigate the rear toe issue. Please be patient as we are extremely busy with the high demand for kits and parts.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

What is the stock arm mounting washer size and number of them? The set up sheets are a little unclear on this when adding a washer.

So do we know if it's in the hubs? Or where the rear toe thing is? ...if it's in the hubs, then we could run 2 rights, or 2 lefts??

If you are referring to the shims placed in between the suspension holders and the bulkheads, they are 1.5mm. One is used to space out each front arm suspension holder. For the rear arms, per the stock manual setup, one is used to space out each of the forward holders and two (total of 3.0mm) are used to space out each of the rearward holders, which also results in a total of 2.5d of rear toe-in (including the rear hubs which have 1.0d of built-in rear toe).

Harshguy, Did you check your car? Do you have the same issue? I just want to know if everyone is having this problem or just a select few..

I just checked mine on an Integy setup system and mine seem to be 2.5 L & R. If anything it maybe 2.5 & 2.75. Which I can accept as my 415 wasnt perfect in back and it worked great.


Not sure if this would work for the guys with issue, but what about lightly sanding the one thats higher?

gotta calm down i think haha..

just went for another tinker. the more i fiddle with it, the more the settings vary.

i had the toe change from 3deg one side, 2deg the other, to backwards, then 2.5, etc...

when i set my camber absolutely perfect. the toe was fine. and there's a bit of slop which can give varied readings.

all good really. im not worried haha

I agree mine would very from 2.5 per side to 2.5 left and 2.75 right, again this is with a setup board. I think guys who are using a more crude way of measuring toe are just having more error in the readings.

Today was my first day out with my new T2, my first Xray car, and all I can say is Wow! I only took a few laps with it, but the car was great. Compared to my FT TC4, the T2 just has incredible punch, corner speed, and top speed! I could put the car wherever I wanted to and it would hold it's line. Now I see what a touring car should really handle like. Wow! Can't wait to get back to the track tomorrow and start tweaking that baby to really see what she can do.
