I just ran my t2 this past weekend and thought i would toss another comment form someone who is very happy with there car. I have the rear toe problem but on the track it didn't seem to matter as the car was more planted and smoother than any other car i have driven to date. I do have confidence that xray and its distributors will cure the problem, but based on the results the car has been getting it is clearly working.

So how about we just use these cars for the reason we buy them, and just have some fun. It is a hobby afterall.

One very satisfied xray customer...

Hey Guys is this normal. I mentioned this before. I only added that one gold shim on the feft side to compensate for the toe-in problem. Look at he cvd's they are barely in the drive shaft. Is it like this on everybody's car when you add one shim on the left side like X-Ray tells you to do?

Question:

Are you running 2 1.5mm shims in the back PLUS your 1 degree outboard toe? That's 3 degrees total! Do you really need that much toe?

I measured it. It is coming out to 2.5 degree of toe on each side. I normally run between 1.5 to 2.5 degree of toe.

You installed the suspension holders the wrong way around.

The side facing the builkhead is flush, the side facing the wheel is curved. The hingepin is offset on the holder...

See pic below... the red lines.

Frako, can't take credit for it, Steve from Netherlands caught it first.

The answer is NO!

You coming down in 2 weeks? Bring Mike and Ritchie!

Thanks Guys for spotting that problem. I guess I just goofed. i dont have my tools here but when I get home I will correct it and maybe it will fix the toe-in problem.

I also have not driven the car yet Thank God. I knew the back looked a little funny. Thanks again. I love this forum. Thanks Shane(Futureal) for making it for all us racers

Oh and yes the shocks can still move freely...

And where would you like payment sent to?

JK.

Could those who have had the toe problem please check their cars to make sure all sets of the holders have the flush side towards the bulkheads.

Mine are, still a toe problem ...but even if they're backwards, is there an angle built into those thingees? And if so seems like as long as they are *all* backwards they should be off the same amount left to right.
