I have a T2 for sale.$350.00 shipped anywhere in the USA. I drove it one time on carpet. I counter sunk the top deck, shock towers and the bulk heads. I also didn't care for the flex system so I glued a solid piece of graphite on the front top deck to stiffen the car and to try to prevent tweak. For 385.00 with all the spring rates and the 6mm wheel hexes.

Just have to say. I got it Thursday, built it Friday, looked at it saturday. Drove it today at the track. I would quit racing before I went back to the FT TC4 after driving this car. Honest as I can get, I went from running 70-74 laps (90 ft oval 4 mins) to, today I ran 84 laps on an 88 lap (TR) pace before I got upside down from a fellow racer. This was taken from the basement to the track, and setup at the track.

RC America and XRAY I LOVE YOU .


Hands down best car out there period!


Keep up the damn good work!

I use the Basic Foam setup for my Med Ozite track and it works good. Although Im also using 3mm shims all around and 3.75 in far rear. Im using Violet in front and Whites in back, they seem to be working well. 1.5 Camber rear, 1 Front. 2 overall Toe in Rear (1* Blocks (stock ones)) and .5 Toe up front.

So I started on the Basic foam setup sheet the T2 came with and played with it from there a bit. Im still running the same Droop in front and rear as the sheet says, Im also going 2 pistons open all around instend of what the sheet says. It seems to be working very well and I love it.

Hope it helped.

RCknight... you'll have to tell us your current set-up, so we know where to start. At first read, your car is transferring too much weight off the rear off the car. You can stiffen the front to resist the weight transfer, or (I prefer) soften the rear so it doesn't transfer the weight as fast. Also, limit the rear droop (downstops or "uptravel" however you want to think of it) so the rear doesn't lift as far.

You can't get answers because we are too busy whining and bashing xray

They say the team drivers use the 3mm shims all around to widen the rear track width this gives the car a more planted rear. I heard some adds 1mm under the wheel (or 6mm wheel hex) too. I tested the all around 3mm shims plus 0.75 (that gave 2.0 toe in) and it was awesome.
I run the dark blue springs rear with that setup.

Hope this helps a bit...

Not to sound like some stupid Ad, but I just bought a T2 from a guy who built it and never ran it, I put it on the track for the first time at our point series this weekend and TQ'd with it. For the last 4 yrs I have been running an Atlas YM 34 and have been strugling with a carpet setup and finally after 4 years gave up (great asphalt car though). I have listened to people over the years bash Xray and their cars and their Prices and have to say that I could not be any more impressed than I am with this car!!

This is supposed to be a public forum, not a cheer squad for xray.

I am entitled to my opinions, as is everyone else.

I feel this would be a pretty dull place, if every post was

"wow its a great car"

"yeah, its the best"

"perfect"

I have said again and again this is an amazing car.

I am just fustrated with this parts saga.
