metric screw heads are 90 degrees.they are available at mcmaster carr,MSC,or a local home depot.go with a good c'snk for the carbon fiber.you dont want to get a bad finish on it.

3/8 diameter is all you will need.the countersink is going to be 1/4" diameter when you are done.

hey guys

been reading alot of people with the "tweak" issues i have a T2 but did not race it yet

but i was checking out the x-ray team drivers set ups on xray.com and many if not all of the team drivers at the novak race were adding 10g up front batt side and 5 g rear batt side and blackstock added 14 g front batt/7g rear batt side . . .

so i guess my question comment is "did everyone that had this "tweak issue" also have weight added to the car??? or was that a make weight thing for the race???

Chris

I am headed to the track today for practice and will try the shorter T2 shock ends.

I was there today and they had parts on the wall. Call them if you want to try to get something shipped. I will also mention that the aforementioned 4 pack of shock ends worked flawlwessly on the 05. Just make sure to replace them in sets to ensure equal shock length L to R as they are a bit shorter than the original 05 shock ends.

Chris08527,

Team drivers and any driver entering a big sanctioned race must be at min. weight. Drivers add the weight to be legal and place the weight to balance the car.

Litespeed,
the motor side weighs more on my car by at least 100 grams if not more. This is with a low pro servo, gtx and futaba hrs reciever, and stock motor. You have to add weight to the other side because of how it is distributed. The motor will stick out and make the car unevenly balanced left to right. Put it up on the hudy pins and see which way it leans. I have at least five grams right behind my motor...

Ok, reason I asked... and here goes.

My IB's seems to weight a lot more than my electronis (19T or mod motor), I have to put more spring loads on that side to get the chassis to be flat and ride height even on both sides. Before anyone says the word "tweak", the tires are even all the way around, droop the same and chassis flat as a piece of glass on the setup board.

So theory behind putting more weight on the already heavier (batteries) side..... since I'm putting more load on the springs, I put weight on that side so counter the extra springs load.

I just want to check my thinking here with everyone.

Dom
