Butter,

The only post I could find says they are "investigating" a solution to the problem to be incoporated into future production batches. That post is also over a month old.

Again, I'm just curious if a real problem has been found and a real solution is in the works.

Hi, just got done getting it together, awesome build. Just 1 ? on tools. I have a Hudy wrench set (black handles with silver stripes.) and the 1.5mm wrench head just doesn't work on some of the screw heads like the wheel hexes and the shock hex screws. What are you guys using? Does the cheaper Hudy 1.5mm wrench work?

On the diffs, a guy at the track said not to put diff lube on the back of the diff plates (side facing outdrives) because it makes it not as consistant. Any one else found this. I built it like the manual said.

Thanks

I am loving my car but has anyone found very fast wear on the blades at the front. I know this is due to the one way but they are splitting after a few runs.

My experience with the one-way/spool is that if you hit almost anything, you'll break a blade up front...

Stumper1- That was the post I was referring to..the post you said is about a month old...so imagine identifying the problem, correcting the manufacturing defect, manufacturing the corrected "version" packaging and shipping overseas...it takes time. Not what you wanted hear I'm sure but it is the the truth..non-sugar coated. I suspect that the parts "shortage" will be a thing of the past in the next 3-4 weeks....

Hope this helps.

The problem has been found and corrected, all of the hubs down here at RC America and at any hobby shop that has ordered them are correct/accurate.

Rocco,

That's what I was looking for - an answer. I've seen this type of question being posted on the X-ray forum and just ignored.

Thanks!!

Im picking up a Parma TC4 bumber for my T2. The holes are exact same spot, although I think I will have to take some of the back off so the brace and fit on it perfectly. It is a little thicker, thats why.

I did drive my T2 today, it was pretty good, but I think the front is sort of diving into the turns, what can I do to prevent this?

-Mike

If you want an aftermarket T2 bumper, then why not order a PDub or the Parma T2 bumper(I believe I saw that it has been announced)?

I need it by friday. I will order one eventually. Anyone help me with the front diving?

Here is my setup:

http://www.teamxray.com/xforum/xform...D=239&setup=t2

Another thing, bunch of foam from the tires got into my motor and onto the side of it, my brushes then were touching the motor and it would not move/get power at all.

I moved the brushes and blew out the foam and sprayed it out with motor cleaner, it works now. Any ideas why it stoped? Any ideas how to prevent this from happening agian?

A little off topic, but I am looking at placing an order for a new T2. I'm just trying to get a list together so I can order everything at once. So far I put this in my cart:

T2 Kit
Battery Strap
Motor guard
CA (for sealing chassis)

Anything else that I will need to build the car??

Also, any good places to get it for a good price? I found brooklyhobbies for $369, but I have to pay tax since I am in state, which makes it over $400 so I might as well order from stormer. Any help is appreciated!!

If you don't already have them some quality metric wrenches (1.5, 2.0, 3.0mm)

You may want to check the www.teamxray.com website for some setup ideas and get some appropriate springs and tires for your given track surface or conditions.

Xray did an update /replacement with thrust bearings for no charge on the FK05's.
Hopefully they will do the same with the rear hubs.

In love with the T2, no problems at all, but decided to keep the FK05 as a backup until the parts shortage is resolved, do have to put up with some harrasment having both cars in the pit spot, I think its mostly gealousy
