Wow you guys really should PM me with this stuff lol


Ok here is what happened. Curtis is a super nice guy and has great stuff. But at the track here they don't allow Atlas based motors for some reason. I don't get the rule, something about them not being avalible to everyone which isn't true cause every tuner out there has them. Anyways so that kept me out of the stock and 19t classes and thats all they really race there. It wasn't fair to Curtis for me to not to run his stuff and have something else in my car. I explained it to him and he understood.

He aslo had alu rear uprights from xray... and speedtech has 6 degre c-hubs on stock, I consider those as option parts too.
this was ralph burchs car from the novak touring car champs, this was the prototype car that he recieved way before the race to test with, thats why some of the parts look different.

Im racing on a med sized asphalt track with med bite

Monster Stock

You might want to search the XRAY forum online setup sheets.

Well? I checked the X-ray forum and noticed that recent questions concerning these problems are skipped over or just pain ignored. There is constant reference to the one post about the uprights.

I'm not mad, just curious.

Has X-ray identified the toe issue? Are there any plans to fix it? Are the currently availble rear uprights made to new tolerances or are they the same as the kit ones? Are the uprights even the problem?

Thanks,
Deric

I understand that some kits had no problems. I also understand that X-ray has acknowledged that some kits DID come with problems. I'm just curious why there has been no other "official" word from X-ray.

My car has no tweak issues. The rear toe is off by a little less than 1 degree. I have shimmed it. While waiting for parts for my RDX (go figure) I finally got the chance to run the T-2. I think it's a great car. Better than the RDX? I don't know. Is it stronger than the RDX? I don't think so. I've broke parts on the T-2 also - fortunately they were available.

Brit why don't you move to complaining at the RDX forums. You sold your car and move on...


Back to productive talk about set ups and tips to making your T2 faster....

Xray has infact posted regarding the tolerances on SOME of the rear hubs as having been off. They were in the process of correcting the issue and producing corrected hubs.
