Then, if the T2 is a better car I will sell my 04, but I have tons of parts for the 04, what parts are interchangeable from the T2 to the 04?


Thanks!!!!!
Don't get rid of your 04 thinking the T2 is that much better. The T2 is a great car but if I had a 04 and parts instead of the car I had, I may not have switched. This car is my best car yet, whether or not it's best for you depends on personel choice. The T2 is easy to work on and more refined the 04 is still a good car.

Im sure they will both be just as good as everything else you have made!! Got money in hand waiting on them both....Got a new 100x80 asphalt track right down the road to race on this summer!!

Default Got a set of rear aluminum uprights and they are....

very nice. I keep chuckling to myself about how nice parts fit together on the T2. I also love the way the shocks mount. When I'm in a big hurry, I seem to drop and lose shims/nut.

This car's about spot on perfect, other than needing hard coated aluminum shock bodies and having a screw that holds down the shock piston. I don't think I could go back to anything else at this point.

I got the track width shims, 30 springs and changed my setup. I can't wait to see how she drives this Wed. I need lady luck on my side, since I've had no good runs the last few races.

For 64p on a T2, the smallest spur I was able to fit was a 110t and the largest (slightly sticking out the bottom) was a 120t.

First off, 64 pitch allows a finer adjustment between gears. One tooth doesn't make as large of a difference in your final ratio. When using a large spur (120), you have to use a larger pinion to get the same final ratio. (ie.. 100/25=4.0, 120/30=4.0) Since the larger pinion has more mass that the motor has to spin, you can lose a small amount of torque. However, it doesn't allow the motor to slow down as much either so you should never miss the torque. I think its called "cogging effect". The other issue with the larger spur is that it moves the motor forward more on the chassis. Not good, not bad, just different. Depends on what you want. Hope that helps.

That is a very large gearing combo that should have burned up just about any motor. What motor, tires and track surface did you use that with?
