Hehe sorry about that....

I just decided to order the car this past week and spent the last 3 nights reading all 150 pages or however many there are here again. (I stopped reading around Febuary originally) and they were giving me tips on parts to order.

Much appreciated everyone.

It's kind of hard to get "cosmetic" shims for all parts of this kit due to the odd requirements for normal toe adjustments (i.e. .4mm, 1.15mm). It is good that Xray includes these in the box...but complicated when you lose one (like I did!).

For roll center adjustments, it's good to have a decent supply of standard .5mm or 1mm shims.

And if you are running carpet w/ foams, it's a good idea to either purchase some 3x6mm shims or a pack of the stock 1.5mm shims for increasing the track width...it seems pretty common to go with 3mm inboard (compared to 1.5mm stock) for track width on carpet.

Unless you are using Parma wheels because they are offset different.

That is what I really like about the Parma foams...no wheel spacers needed to keep the wheel from rubbing the steering block!

You guys can always run the Tamiya 6mm wheel hex clamps to space the wheel out a little more than the stock 5mm.

To keep the width right use .5mm shims to replace the stock 1.5mm spacers.

Hey guys. I just wanted to give an update on the "Tweak Plates". They will be running tomorrow and will ship Wed or Thurs. I had two made for this weekend's FSEARA race and they came out very nice. If anyone cares to contact me about one the e-mail is [email protected]
or just give me a p.m.

Thanks, Art

My one complaint:
Too many other people have them.
I'm going faster, but then all the other T2 owners are going faster too.

Well just think of it as spec racing.

Appears everyone at our club either has, or wants one..

Default Quick question on replacement parts

Hi folks, quick question on the front universal bone for the T2. Are there any after market universal bones for the T2? Or everyone basically just use the original from Xray?

TIA.

Just use the Xray Multi Diff. It's very good and versatile.
