Hi Guys,

Just want to post a quick note that we got another small shipment of T2 parts in stock today, including some more C-hubs, steering knuckles and a few of the carbon battery strap. Parts are still just trickling in, and we hope to get more next week. Thank you all for your patience.

Hey CoryCraig,

If you can't locate 2 new blades in time for this weekend, just take the two from the rear and use those in front and move the worn/damaged from front to the rear. The rear blades rarely needs replacing as the punishment on those blades is much less. All of this is assuming that you didn't already do this.

Steve

Hi Everyone,

I just found this site, so I am new here. Iíve being involved with this hobby for about 12 years now. I have a lot of building experience and with engineering background. Anyway, I raced with a HPI Pro 4 last season; it was a pretty good car, but I was surprised to find so much play in the suspension and steering for a pro level car. The play is comparable with an entry level Tamiya car or a bit more.

I was looking to get a HB Cyclone or a Tamiya 415 MSX Refine 2, but then I discovered T2. I have heard that Xray makes good car and first saw Xray T1 about 5 years ago or so. The only vehicle I have from Xray is a M18. Iíve read that T2 has some rear hub problems, but the good results from races donít lie. My impression with x-ray is that they value the functioning of the car more than anodizing eye-candy.

I am looking for a car thatís easy to work on. Pro 4 is not bad, but certainly is not the easiest car to work on. Can T2 owners give me some feed back regarding how much plays are in the steering and suspension? And also the effectiveness of multi-flex feature, quick roll center adjustment and external damping adjustment feature. By the way, I race on temp. race track and asphalt and rubber tires.

I would really appreciate any inputs, thanks.

Thanks
