Britracer, I spoke to Juria in person at the Snowbirds. I also keep in touch with the guys at RCAmerica and the reason for troubled parts support is the move to the new building. I thought they were through with teh move, but turns out it has been a long drawn out deal and the machines still aren't all up and running. Not to mention like Breiner said carbon fiber is hard to get right now. The lack of parts has absolutley ZERO to do with RCAmerica so quit slamming on them. Juria said they are working around the clock trying to get things back up to speed. I would call it growing paignes(sp?).

The T2 is a great car. Mine was simply awesome at the Snowbirds as well as everyone else I know. Try to be patient and have some understanding.

i'm with you on that, the Corally looks very nice and the price is not bad for what you get.

RC America is the main source for all US distributors and regardless of who or what has failed; they are directly responsible for maintaining parts support for their customers. Good customer service is not about shifting blame or making excuses so we appreciate the information but you are not doing them any favors. Whatever issues they might be having internally should be of no concern to the racer who has been sidelined for up to 6 weeks due to a lack of critical parts.

If the racers were given a choice between having the car immediately or waiting until full parts support were available before the car is released, most would still choose not to wait. However, Xray and its subsidiaries must now cope with the consequences of that decision, including the complaints. Patience and understanding are great virtues but are rare in this world of heavy competition and instant gratification. If the issues or "growing pains" aren't quickly resolved and the only solution is to buy an extra kit or purchase parts from the aftermarket, some people will start to look elsewhere.

They will be at least as strong as anything else on the market.

We are initially thinking the price will be around $75 US for a rear hub kit, which includes the rear hubs, and the option to make them between 1, and 3 degrees in .5 degree increments (and they are always adjustable, your not set to anything, you can change them at any time).
A second option will be .25 increments for an additional $20..

As for material, we are looking at 2024 right now. It has characteristics that may be better for this part than the o-so-common T6 7075..

It seems everyone has posted how poor the support is and how attractive other car manufacturers are now looking. If you truly think switching to another company will do the trick, then by all means do it. Coming on here day after day after day and complaining about it to no one but fellow racers is certainly not the best way to be heard.

I for one would love for someone to come on here and tell me about ONE company that has not had a difficulty at one time or another with their product or their manufacturing process.

The problem lies here....Xray has set the bar so high through the quality products they provide both competition (XB8, T2) and "play" (M18, NT18, M18MT) that people have come to expect perfection everytime. We all know that perfection is rarely attained... Since there have been such few "hitches" with Xray, the moment there is a snag everyone gets on their case. Let's not talk about other manufacturers who have 6 different versions of their car out in the hands of team drivers for continued testing, or perhaps some that seem to have an issue with parts durability.

I for one would rather have to be "patient" and get the best possible kit and parts with the most durability that money can buy and if waiting is what I have to do then so be it.

Funny thing is, just like in full scale racing or sports..no one bash's a team or driver that is doing poorly or is not performing up to standards... They wouldn't be on anyone's radar. Everyone always wants to knock the top dog off...and if the past 3 major races are any indication that would be Xray.

Well said Butter!

On another note, anyone thinks Corally is looking better and switching. Send me your T2 and I'll send you my RDX. I have no use of that RDX anymore.

Another suggestion, TC4 has great parts support, please give up your T2 and run that instead.

I agree, they have been so good for so long....and they actually have a few problems and everyone throws them under the bus. Like I said before...if you aren't happy with the car get rid of it and get something else. Easy as that.

just watch out with the anodizing.2024 doesnt anodize as good as other aluminums.i would hate to see someone make a real nice part and have the anodizing make it look bad.just contact your anodizer and let them know its 2024 and the finish you are looking for to see if they can do it.sounds like a nice product.

Thanks.
