T2/MSX: if you wanted to use the car on carpet then you should choose the T2 because there is no front diff available for the MSX...

Guys who owned both cars say T2 is easier to work on and the parts fit and finish is better (less slop). But on asphalt both cars are great.

I was thinking about buying the BMI Chassis to fix the problem.
I have 2 T2's form the first series. I replaced the rear hub on both cars and the problem is solved. And some deviation on the amount of degrees is enclosed in the design.

yep, i was just at the track and a mate tryed a setup from a team driver. it was really really nice, infact if was night and day to my crappy setup. let's just say i learnt a lesson to sometimes just revert back to stock. the body did make a difference but the setup was gold. i will try the team setup from my mate at the next event i am running and post it if it works. this setup had no push, if anything it was alittle too loose ont he rear. it is almost how i like hy car to handle. thanks for the help.

I still think there was a problem with Hubs.
I did some measuring and found discrepancies between the two hubs in relation to the hinge pin holes.

The current problem is in the rear hubs being off, but according to Xray they were all found to be within manufacturing tolerances. From what I read, Xray is taking extra steps to make sure they are correct now, no problems, huh? Basically they know there was a problem, but dont want to send out any freebies to anyone.
I also did read of some first batch run cars having some chassis missalignment problem. Surely, those have been corrected as well by now unless there are some 1st batch cars lying around. For the most part every TC I've owned has had problems to deal with, just hurts when you lighten your wallet almost $400, and have small problems.

Hey guys. Just wanted to give an update on the tweakplates. They are in and those who ordered already will be shipped out in the morning. I have 8 pieces left out of this batch. Give me an email if you want one. Thanks.

Very easy, you put the chassis on the Tweak Plate and then bolt it down using the 4 standoff screws (thumb screws). You then loosen all the top deck screws and retighten them. The result is a perfectly aligned chassis. No need to break out the blocks to see if the chassis is flat. It makes wrenching a luxury. I have one and I can't see how I will ever go racing without one again. I think he still has some left in the first batch that ran yesterday I think. Email him. ([email protected])

Jared Scott and Eric Anderson from EA have just received theirs. Jared is using his at the LRP race in Germany this week. Ralph Burch and Mike Blackstock are also getting one. You know if they are getting one it's obviously no joke that the plate is money.
