Hey Guys,

I'm in the market for a touring car and have pretty much decided on a T2. I've never run onroad only 1/10 and 1/8 scale offroad. I'll be running on an asphalt track. Does the T2 perform well on asphalt out of the box? Also I have a GTB 5.5 I would like to run in the car. The chassis space looks pretty tight, what is the chance the GTB will fit? If any one is running a GTB setup and has pictures I would appreciate a sneak peek.

Thanks

when I first built mine, the arm did not fall freely. But after a day at the track, it's smooth like silk now =)

bogus.
I don't have a set up station, so I don't know for sure if I have the same toe problem that is being reported.

However, I set a new fast lap record tonight with my T2, beating the previous record set by a full factory XRay driver with his 05. I know my t2 is allready pretty close to being DIALED, and is much quicker than my nicely equiped 04 I had been running.

It is entirely possible that a small ammount of tolerance in the drilling of the rear A-arms or uprights are responsible for the small difference in rear toe. Consider if the arms were drilled only .5 degrees off, it would ammount to the 1 degree difference. .5 degrees across over an inch is pretty close, like a few thousandths of an inch. The difference could also come from the hinge pin holders that attach to the bulkheads.

All I know is my T2 is super fast, and I have no complaints.

I ran mine on asphault, with the chassis setup in the softest position, white springs up front, yellow in the back, and a muti diff. its as good or better than anything i have driven . out of the box setup i dunno how it would be on asphault, as i changed the front diff, and al 4 springs before i even hit the track.

I ran my T2 with the stock set up rubber tires all I changed was the springs to 17lbs rear and 19lbs fronts . this was my first time out amd I took second in the A main . this is the first time I maked it to the a main in a long time. the car really works . This weekend I am trying the stock set up with foams on carpet I hope this will do as good as the rubber ser up.

Dude.. you dont need a set-up station to check the rear toe-in on your car. You just need a camber gauge. I use the RPM plastic one. It works fine.

Take your car and stand it up on a flat surface. Mine pretty much stays standing up because it rests on the rear body posts and then check it with a camber gauge.

Not to give a lesson here but rear toe-in is one of the most sensative adjustments. If you go from say 2 degree rear toe-in to 1 degree toe-in you will feel a major diffrence. The rear of the car would be alot looser.

Same as me 2 degree left and 3 degree right but I checked mine with a camber gauge. A full degree off would make the car handle really weird.

I dont know but I hope X-Ray will address this issue soon..

The GTB 5.5 will fit in the car, but you might have to put your reciever in top of the servo.

I got an idea to fix the problem ourselves. We all can become pen-pals and swap one rear hub. We just need to send each other the correct hub.

I can't see how this form of measurement can be that accurate. If your car is leaning one way or the other in the slightest amount that would change your measurement.

Now I see that someone measured on a Hudy board that would be a lot more accurate.

I agree. It is probably not as bad as he thinks.
