I ran my T2 for the first time in Expert Stock yesterday on asphalt and was very impressed with it. I TQ'd and almost won the Main despite being down on power to the eventual winner. The car was smooth, transitioned well, tracked straight as an arrow and seemed to carry good speed through the turns. Pretty good for a first run. I was running the kit setup too. The car looks promising.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones. I didn't have the toe problem. Not much of one anyway

I tried that...an outdrive broke on the first wall I hit ! The sandpaper trick would probably work much better on the old aluminum outdrives that weren't milled for less weight.

I talked with Larry about these tonight, he said there's about a degree difference in steering throw... Don't know if there is a ton of difference in feel, but there is more room between the knuckle and a jaco wheel...

Hey Guys,

I'm throwing a spool in to the car to test for the Reedy.

I need to know what a Spool is going to do and what things in my setup I need to work on to make it work,

Thanks,

Nick

Did Xray update the shocks when the T2 came out? Or are they the same shocks as the T1?
