Rear end temporary fix. Use the FK05 rear hubs and drive shaft components. No toe end problems, no spare part problems.

Because this car was supposed to be able to run on asphault and then be able to hit up a carpet track with a couple of changes. Just thought i'd let you all know that. 3mm chassis huh...
I know a team driver and he told me that in addition to the stock 2.4mm chassis the Factory Team has access to a 1.8mm and 3mm chassis.

Did you guys, actually, believe Xray wasn't going to raid your wallets for an aftermarket chassis? That's way too many sales to miss out on.

Default Sway Bars

Got the idea from Mark Smyka, you need the sway bar linkage from the 05, front 1.2mm sway bar for the RDX and set of wire cutters to remove the end tips

Default Backwards Pinion???

I'm trying to attach my motor. It appears that the pinion must be installed "backwards" in order to fit. Has anyone else had this issue? It seems that the motor sits too close to the spur gear, which requires the reverse position to get optimal contact between the spur and pinion. The only other option I see is to shim between the motor and the motor mount. Maybe this is preferable, but it seems difficult to install this way. What do you guys think?

FYI....The front sway bars from the 05' work on the T2. You can also use the rear sway bar mounts. If you had or have an 05' you don't need to buy more parts.

I believe that the front C-hub/knuckle/axle combo from the '05 work also. Of course that adds all of that "unsprung weight" back into the package.
