guys that top plate does work, i seen it yesterday. it makes the car stiff so the tweak issues some of you are having should be solved.

I guess it may help carpet ahsphalt racers reduce tweak too.... you could still leave a lot of the screws out to keep flex...but maybe it will be too stiff.

The new Rubberneck / Pdub bumber for the T2 is awesome. It offers great protection and is a direct bolt on. IMO it is a must have.

Thanks guys for putting out another great product!!!

Mark.

Hey Mark, is it available on the website??? I look last week and order a standard TC bumper...figured I'd just cut one to fit.

Yes they make a great product....have one on the 415

Does anyone know if the 'newer' kits are having any of the original rear toe in problems or some of the other small problems? I assume XRAY has adjusted their tooling of the assembly line, but I am not sure if those kits may be on the shelves yet. Any updates on any changes that are being made or have been made? I'm looking to get one in the near future, but I need to wait until there are parts on the shelves and all the initial build issues are taken care of...

I spoke to Rc America and was told the fk05 battery straps are discontinued.
They are going to replace it with the ones made for the T2, which will be released in about a month or so.
I need to get these battery straps asap because I dont want my batteries flying off the car when I hit a board.

the way the batteries fit in the new T2 i doubt that your batters will be ejected and returned to sender, even if you hit a board.

just be sure to round all the edges that the tape goes thru so it doesnt get cut.....

I agree, the batteries are not really going to come out too easily. Actually, I think taping them is a better way to go anyway. Would rather have the tape rip than have the battery brace pull off and destroy the chassis.

They dont make it for the T2 yet but you can get an fko5 bumper and adapt it.
