You get chassis, BOTH top decks. and shock towers for $129.00. screw holes are countersunk. even on the shock towers.

This is the BMI website.

I set mine up the same as this. GTX on it's side/back, batt wires soldered under pcb instead of ontop, so they come straight out under the top deck. works a TREAT.

only thing is, from a safety electronics point of view, you shouldnt really cover the top of the cap like this.. (pointing toward the chassis) incase it blows, etc..

anyway...

Take my word for it....The BMI towers are stronger around the RC holes.

I got a T2 which I plan to start off in stock for a while.

Now, some more silly newbie questions.

The T2 comes with a 87t, 48 Pitch spur right?

I plan to get an 86t and 88t spur also.

Also, from what some of the local guys have told me, the pinions I will need will be anywhere between 23t-28t

Now my questions:

1./ What brand pinions do most use with the T2, and will they fit ok with the spur range I mentioned?

2./ Where can I buy this brand of pinions online?

Thanks
all wrong sorry to tell you. the car comes with a 84t spur & you will need pinions between 18-25t use the t2 rollout chart as a guide.

i am currently using a 87t spur with 21t pinion wich is a 28.10 rollout.

may i ask who told this info?

i told him it came with a 84 tooth spur, but i also told him heaps of other info (ie to get a 87 spur)...and he probably got confused

Xray has also made a running change to the front and rear shock towers, leaving more material around the roll center holes for additional strength.

The CF parts shipment RCAmerica received should be the updated towers. This was a change to the towers, not an option tower, so the part number listed onthe T2 parts list is still correct, the part itself has merely been updated.

You need to base your roll-out on what works at your track. I'm rolling out just over 30 with the CO27. As far as the motor getting hot, it may be undergeared and working too hard, it could be overgeared and working too hard. If you have alot of drag brake dialed in, it will also heat up the motor. I don't think anyone here is trying to ignore you, just alot of variables involved in gearing. Check with the track locals and see what they're running. Even if they're not running the same car, the roll out should be close.

Yeah I just got some in stock and they are beefier around roll center area.

Try a 20t pinion and take a temperature reading from the motor after a 5 minute run.

A good temperature for most stock motors would normally be between 170F (cold environment) and 195F (hot environment). If it is higher than 195F then go down another tooth on the pinion and do another 5min test run. If it is lower than 170F, then go up a tooth on the pinion and do another 5min test run. I always try to start out with smaller pinions and then keep increasing the pinion size until the motor comes off the track between 185-195F. However, some motors like to run cooler near 170F (co27) and others warmer near 195F (P2K2).

Rollout and gearing in general is explained on page 40 of the XRAY T2 Set-up Book.
