Well, parts showed up yesterday since we paid for blue label...

They are all pretty much gone now! Still no battery strap nor rear hubs. Anyone knows a place that has the new battery strap?

That's part of it (BTW, this is an FK05 discussion as the T2 does not have height adjustable diffs). More important is the torque generated by the diff itself. The higher you put the diff the more front-rear weight transfer you get.

Since motors and batteries are getting better and better touring car (belt driven) designers are all focussing more and more on reducing front-rear weight transfer. The added motor torque as well as additional torque due to high voltage batteries has increased front-rear weight transfer to the point where cars become undriveable. This is why most cars nowadays have the layshaft as low as possible too. It is also one of the reasons shaft driven cars seem to have more difficulties nowadays. Torque steer is more difficult to keep in check and highly depends on the amount of torque that the motor generates.

Rob and Tony, thank you for the input. That definately helps, and sorry about putting this in the T2 forum. It just seems like most of the tallent and knowledge has moved here from the FK05 forum, so I figured that I could get a quicker and more accurate answer here...looks like I was correct!
Thanx again!!

The blue aluminum for the T2 looks really nice.

The Parma brace has had the ends cut off & the bolts just go in the slot.

I also used button head screws threaded into the knobs that are long enough that I don't have to unscrew them all the way. I just loosen them and slide the pack out. It is also adjusted so with the strap tight, it has just enough tension to hold the pack down but not tweak the chassis at all since the plastic corners hold it in.

I've only ran 3 packs through the car the other day but with old 3300s & dirty motor, without any adjusting, it ran as fast as my Losi did in race trim. It just seems to rotate really good. Not sure if that means anything but I'll find out Sunday with it's first race. The CRC top plate is pretty sweet. It fits perfect & really makes the chassis stiff. R.W.

guys I just bought some parts for T2 on speedtech.
It seems like they have front/rear arms, front hubs, steering hubs and some other minor parts available.
A lot of parts are still not in inventory.
Just thought I'd give you guys a heads up.
If anyone need parts for the T2 (arms, hubs and such), you should check out speedtech.

yeah, pretty much only arms available now. When I got on, I didn't see any steerin knuckles at all, think I got the last c-hub as well. Stormer does not ahve front knuckles either, just c-hubs and arms.

Has anybody bought a crc t2 top deck that didnt include countersunk screws and wasn't countersunk? Just wondering because the package and the invoice say 3mm-New Revised Unit. So I was just curious if this is something new or what

thanks
