As I read through this thread I find it odd that I am running a T-2 because I am waiting for parts for my RDX.

hwman: dont let the rear toe issue stop you .... this is how i look at it, the car is awesome as it is (and you know that already right?), so any fixes down the road will only make it better! the force is strong in the darkside! HAHAHA ....

kuha ka na! ganun di rin naman pantay mga toe-in ng iba mong auto diba? hehehe

..... pardon the greek post guys! i just thought i would be more convincing if i injected something in our native tongue.

I just recently purchased a Xray T2 I plan to run the stock and 19T class can anyone (PM) me there setups for (asphalt with foam tires) what compound tires should I use for a (med bite asphalt track) and what (tire traction should )I use and (shock oil and pistons) etc,etc,...I looked on the Xray site and I did not see any setups for asphalt with foam tires also I heard you have to gear differnently (going to a bigger pinion) and as for gearing can anyone tell me how to gear these three motors for foam tires

what pinion and spur :

Im racing on a med sized asphalt track with med bite

Monster Stock

Trinity C2 19t

Reedy quad Mag 19t

Id prefer a pinion and spur rather than giving me a ratio or rollout if thats not to much to ask any help would be greatly appreciated

Britracer - I have two T2's and one RDX and all I can say is they are both great cars. Both have weeknesses and lots of strengths. Since you are going Corally, buy the aluminum steering knuckles as it is one of the week points of the car for me. I do think the T2 is faster at transitioning thru the corners but the Corally is so smooth and forgiving to drive. I had the Corally first but I am trying to make my T2 as fast as it's so easy to work on and even though there are problems with the rear toe, Xray engineering is fantastic.

My two cents

***THIS JUST IN***

Corally is now offering a payment/financing plan for those first time buyers of the RDX. Purchasing all those replacement arms, knuckles, and such can burn a hole in anyones wallet. Kudos to Corally for this agressive move for its customers.

Wow, to me it seems like everyone is making 'fun' of a fellow racer just because he is getting an RDX over the T2 for lack of parts support.

No not at all... the car... maybe. I have a good friend locally that has done his best ever with the RDX, but it is by far more brittle than his TC3 ever was... for him anyways. He has also owned an FK05 for comparison. There are other drivers locally that do well with the RDX, but it is definitely fragile.

I really like the T2...but my initial excitement has been replaced by annoyance, and as such I felt it best for me to change.

As someone who has bought both the "top cars" I am aware they both have weaknesses.

As for the person who posted about the corally weaknesses, I am yet to find out how weak!! LOL.

But the T2 requires investment out the box to make it solid on carpet, especially if you run at a track with 2'x2' wooden boards.

For my local track the 2.5mm Uber chassis was OK, but I am a trend whore and with all the good guys running the 3mm chassis, it was inevitable I was going to order one....I cant stop myself.

I think for the open box experience, the corally looks good, the initial investment is a $50 more, but it seems ok knowing the battery strap, aluminum hubs and thick chassis are already there.

I am sure I will be bitching on the RDX thread soon too, its my nature, I'm british.

do you have to get those super low RC pieces for the RDX too which adds up to like 8 or 9 bucks a piece for 8 of them?


i found my T2 works great for me with the stock chassis pieces so far....ive been messing with the pro-squat, anti-dive, kickup, etc. the last time at the track to get a feel for it more

soon to come....BMI chassississ

C'Mon Pit crew hook us up with the info..What do you know..

I am sick of people at the track looking over my car to just check it out and them saying "oh.. look you have 2 shims on this side and 1 on the other. You are missing a shim" Then I tell them the issue. Its kinda embarrising. I really hope once I put the new rear hubs on. WHENEVER THEY COME IN. that they fix the problem.

I am praying its not the way the holes were drilled in the chassis that is causing this problem(Holes not drilled straight). Well see..
