TeamGP and Ted-thanks. I wasnt thrilled with the front slammed and for sure I felt like I actually picked up a push in some corners with the front slammed and rear mid RC, so I had to go with the rear high to get the steering back in the car. IN the end-I think I am going to go back to mid RC all around and find the steering a different way lol.

Thats what I luv about being an RC driver/mechanic with the vehicles we have today. So many options to choose from!

Here is a link to some of our tips:
XRAY T2 Tips and Tricks from Nexus Racing

I suggest performing the tips marked "easy" when first building the car, and maybe trying some of the other stuff later on.

Default Belt pulling to one side, common?

If you look from the back of your T2 chassis and spin the drivetrain a few times, does the belt on the front pully pull to the right (looking form the back)? It will pull all the way so that it just clears or touches the side walls of the pully gear, causing unwanted drag.

My T2 hasnt been run yet, ive checked for tweak and nothing is twisted. The Bearing holders/belt tensioners are the same both sides, and it pulls to the same side no matter which way the belt is put on. Seems like the front diff itself could be in at an angle?
The back one is perfectly central though.

I asked anoher T2 user who said his does the same, but he says its no problem for him. Things like this tend to bug me though

If you could check and tell me if yours does the same or not, or if you found a way to get rid of it please let me know

Looking closer it seems the front and middle pully's dont prefectly line up, I removed some material form the inside of the front pully to move the gear along and the belt runs perfectly down the centre now, no chance of it rubbing against the side walls and causing drag.

I understand that you are looking for perfection, but this little test of yours is pointless. The chassis is going to flex while the car is in motion and the belt is going to wander on the pulleys. It may spin down the middle in your hands on the bench, but it won't stay there on the track. Not that you would notice it anyway.

You're probably right, but it was playing on my mind.

There is a horn for hitec. Look in the manual, it should be the same as Airtronics I believe. I stuck a JR 650MG in mine, had to space it quite a bit to keep the arm from hitting the upper deck.
