from what I've heard only the belts and diffs will cross
because what's better than having to buy a $55 diff when a caster block breaks Look on the bright side the T2 parts should be in stock by the arrival of the T4

I have to agree with the the majority... my car is run with foam tires on carpet... so far 1 broken rear shock tower..... no tweaking of any kind... stock chassis with Stiff Pickle top deck... rear toe issue? don't know, never measured and cant tell on the track. The car is fast and easy to work on... just won the A at the final Hurricane Series race at Trackside yesterday. I have no complaints with the car other than the spare parts issues that I hear from team drivers should just about be over I loved my 05 but I feel my T2 is better

The chassis and rear hubs will work on the T3. And it comes with extra spacers.

What spur do most of you all run? 48 or 64?

What do most of you run for pinion with your spur? Just wanted to see what everyone was running or thought was best.

thanks,
scott

It's a pitty that the forum is dominated by negative vibes about fairly normal or non-existing or one-off issues.

TOE-IN
I got 2x a series 1 T2 and yes both have a toe-in tolerance, but not stopping me from setting good times. And as stated the T1 FOC, FK'04 and the FK'05 have this tolerance too. The tolerance causing the toe-in difference is located in the holes in the upright holding the lower pivot. During assembly most people (me2) make those holes a little bigger to loosing the movement of the upright. But even if you don't do that, the play in all pivots, production tolerances of the parts and accuracy of the setup system will lead to toe-in differences.

The last run with the T2 I used the new ALU uprights from xray and yes the play / toe-in diff was less left to right. But that is very logic because ALU is allways more precise to manufacture than composite.

TWEAK
I ran last year the EVO2 / FK'04 and FK'05 and I can say they all had tweak, caused by rough contact or even by running a few times over curbstones in full speed. That's why I always recheck my car's setup ..... if I have the time

BREAKING PARTS
We all want a very direct reacting good steering car. To get that we want the materials to be as hard as possible. So ALU is 'better' than 'composite'. But ALU is more expensive and it can bend giving irreversable changes to the setup. So we want HARD unbreakable COMPOSITE and we want the CHEAPEST part to break in case of a crash. And that's exactly how the T2 is designed. Xray uses HARD composite material and in case of a crash the upright / arm / caster block break. Great! I hope it's not a discussion that I (we?) prefer that over a broken bulkhead. And yes if the crash is harder or under a specific angle you will break a shock tower.

I ran the T2 outdoor two times over the last weeks in cold conditions (-6 degrees C / 21 degrees F) and had some smaller crashes and had no tweak, breakage or any other real issue. The only issue was me making mistakes and learning to drive.

If you have a real issue with a Xray products mail to [email protected] (I did a few times and had very quick answers).

I'm going to have season full of fun with my T2 and I hope more and more people start driving the car and share their findings here.

My opinion is clear: The T2 is a good positive next step in the evolution started with the T1 a few years ago. I hope this evolutions will go on!

Greetings,

Joep
it's a great car! I would just like to get the parts I want. Like aluminum shock bodies, steel diffs and to be able to buy them separetly.

[B]Does anyone know where I can find at least a few of the aluminum option components (i.e.: steering blocks, C-Hubs, rear up-rights). It seems that RC America is telling my LHS that those components haven't made it to the states yet. Tamale is backed up. Does anyone know of someone or have some of these things on a shelf? [/B

Ooh yeah, the car's great...few minor things to look out for, tweaks etc.
Considering the short amount of time the cars been out and the sheer number of people gravitating to it and finishing well, I'd say other than a parts availability issue...all's well. (Remember the Corally guys fought over parts for quite awhile too.)

Thanks,
Unfortunately their a bit behind due to demand, I'd be at the end of the list and waiting quite awhile. It's not like it's that big a deal, just a few bigger races I'm going to I'd rather not take the chance. Or...just don't hit [email protected]#t. I love the car though .
