Ive only driven a T2 two days, both days with the BMI kit-I guess the tweak issues have been played to death, but my cars still perfectly tweaked even after some hard impacts (like my buddy going backwards during a qualifier-POW). STarted with the Dumas Set-up from Natsadded 6-deg c-hub-Wow!!

NOw to try one of Lemieux's set-ups with slammed front roll and high rear roll.

Ray Per your post you admit that you were driving a hybrid car (B-Ray) and not an Xray T2. The tweek issue is with the original T2.

Another race day... and still NO tweak... but wait... that's not possible... I read that they all tweak with the slightest touch of a board.... maybe I assembled it wrong

Parts availability in my neck of the woods is tough. I have a roller for sale it's freshly rebuilt if you know anyone looking for one. I have to say that my T2 is from the second batch and I have not had a problem with it. No tweek and no tow issues. I'm thinking the guys that jumped the gun to buy them when they first came out where the ones having problems. I am also noticing that the people having problems are the ones trying to run it in flexy mode.

yeah,thats the biggest problem i see with the component grade carbon fiber that comes with alot of these cars.the flex characteristics are great but it doesnt fully return after it twists and creates tweak.if i run a stock chassis i just put it on a tweak station after each run and twist it back to position.thats what i do with the cyclone.

Use heat shrink over the pin, and put a flat spot on the pin with a dremmil.

It is possible, if the total of both left scales is the same as the total of the right scales the car is balanced left to right.
Once the chassis balances left to right everything else gets easier!
Diagonal sum weight is the most important reading to get the same.
