His skill is about medium range right now. I can keep it off the pipes, but doesn't run smooth and clean lines.
The only way the battery strap can tweak the car is if the cells don't sit level or sit too high (from not filing the slots). The easy way to cure this is to put a washer under the posts for the strap so the strap doesn't "bow" itself due to the outer cells being taller than the post. I have a washer under mine so there is just a small bit of "play" between the cells and strap. With the cell supporters on the chassis and the strap, they won't go anywhere, and you don't notice the small play on the track.

If it makes you feel any better about the 9550, it's the same servo Lemieux used during his string of winning races. Doesn't seem the servo hurts anything at any level, and the size fits nice without over hanging off the chassis. I have the same one.

I think the only class that you will notice over 100oz of torque making a difference will be offroad trucks and 1/8.

Good to know. I'll be driving stock for a while (can't afford the parts for Mod, nor amI good enough), so the Futaba will be more than enough fomr me....

Parma makes a great bumper for the T2 as well as others. Very Very stiff.

Yeah I was going to buy the 9550 but Larrys was out of it and only reason I wanted it because it was Low Profile, but the JR is alright, and don't stand out too much, plus its faster but nothing you will really notice.

The T2 battery strap is slotted in the front hole at the thumb screw. with the screw tightened down the strap still moves,this allows the chassis to flex without the strap binding. I dont see how it could induce tweak. Even with my 3800's the batts still have a little play.
Pretty ingenius design to let you set the chassis for max flex and not have the batt strap bind up.

Recently put one in my T2 and I love it. I though the car was going to overly agresive with the steering with the upgrade, but it wasn't. The car is much smoother, and feels more nimble, and didn't have ANY negative affects.

My recomendation.
how about the KoPropo 2113 and 2123 @ .06 and 131 oz ?

Default T2

I was looking at a few xray setups and a few guys are
putting a spacer in the front to toe out the front hinge pins.
.5 to 1.0mm in behind the front roll centre block at the front.
what does this do give more steering or less.

This is referred to as 'in-board toe-out'. It generally gives smoother steering transitions from corner entry to exit. However, it is not necessary for all setups. Take a look at the XRAY forum In-board Toe Out thread for more details.

So is this shim in addition to the standard shims that are installed when building?

cool. So just the front 2 roll center hubs get shims to add toe out similar to how it is in the rear right?
