Rear hub or upright? Aren't those the same part .

Mine was about .5 deg off stock...I ended up having to change my LR upright when I broke one, and that change made mine even.

Some people reported theirs being off something like 2 degrees, though . I'm not sure if they built the car wrong (like by installing one of those lower suspension holders on backwards), hit something, had a bad chassis, or what.

You dont need to go with a solid top deck. Just counter sink the stock one and never worry about it again.
That's a really good idea, thanks. I've got a drill press and a proper counter sink so this will be a easy fix instead of spending money. I'm surprised they didn't countersink it from the factory.

I could see a solid top deck having the same issue now too, since my biggest problem is the top deck is getting pushed back into the rear bulkhead at an uneven angle. That would happen with a solid as well, but maybe to a slightly less degree.

1.Most guys are using the mazda 6,I use the stratus 3.0
2.The car is pretty much awsome right out of the box, the only things I can come up with is the multi diff which I think comes stock with any kit not purchased in the US, maybe swaybars and of course shock springs.
3.I find that if you cut your corners close and tag a rail or dot the stock caster blocks and steering knuckles are the only thing that I have broken on the car. But after purchasing the Xray wide plastic bumper I have not busted any since P-dub also makes one for the T2.

Other than that the car will win striaght out of the box
good luck.

In one word....NOPE!

My T2 was fast right out of the box and I have NEVER noticed any ill handling issues associated with the rear toe.
I hope this helps and enjoy your new ride!!!

OK, I will like her as my girlfriend.
Excuse for my poor English, I am a rookie from Shanghai. T2 is my first car. I am choosing the ESC, Q2C, GTX or Twister2.1?

Go to www.mcmastercarr.com, search: countersinks, click drills and countersinks, get the 1/2" body, 1/4" shank, choose 90 deg $8.75

it shouldnt hurt it buddy.if you just run a 90 degree countersink in the 82 degree one,you can get pretty good head contact.on another note,carbide countersinks are the way to go with such an abrasive material.carbon fiber does not like to be cut like alloys,it likes to be shaved.a countersink with any sort of helical cutting edges will split the material.multi flute countersinks with multiple cutting edges are ideal for the job.they go through carbon fiber like a hot knife through butter with no lift in the material.hope this helps.
