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
Under a load the belt does seem to run in the center of the front pulley, running on carpet the fuzz buildup seems to be about equal on both sides of the belt.
Its an optical thing.

i'll order the airtronics one, but it clearly does not list hitec as one of the uses in the manual...

Dynamite makes an alum servo arm, its striat up, if you mount the str rod on the servo side of the arm you can mount the servo flush with no spacers and no rubbing on the top deck.

I used the "F" Futaba one . the "K" KoProPo one will work also but fits tight until a new Futaba sized one like the dynamite Aluminum one.

Which type of the spur gear is better in T2? 48P or 64P?I'm using the 48P of xray, but it's too noisy when racing.

Check your gear mesh. The pinion shouldn't be mashed tight against the spur gear. It should have a little bit of play in it. Some spur gears aren't perfectly round so make sure to check for play all the way around the spur as sometimes it'll be tight on one side and not on the other. FInd that happy medium.

Almost all the factory sites say there's no difference between 48 and 64 pitch as far as speed. The only advantage to 64p is you have more ratios available.

I've asked a lot of racers why they went to 64p and most answer because they already have a full set of 64p pinions.

I have a slightly different thought process...Indoors I run 64 pitch, but when I run outdoors since there is more chance for a small pebble to kick up I run 48 pitch....

I had the same thought too TigeRyan, but I find that the PRS 64p spurs gears are far more durable than the Xray 48p spurs, I can run the same PRS spur for at least 5 weekends on outdoor asphalt with no problem at all. With the Xray 48p gears I am lucky to make it through a whole day, even with the new hard spur gears. My .02 cents.

Don't waist your time the thing is 80g under weight, at least mine is! In american terms that's a little over 2 1/2oz. I'm trying to get creative on how to add this much weight. I'm installing a batterie strapp and 2 25mm fans, a heatsink on my speedo I may eaven get the motor guard.

?? Parking lot track like Superior or permanent? I race on a permanent track up here in Jacksonville and used the same spur for over a year with no problems?

That'd make your car worse.
So you're gonna remove weight form the lowest possible place, the actual chassis, then stick lead on top of it? You might also introduce too much flex into it.
I'd leave it.

Yes new92, Superior, NewRed, B and B, ect. Even the dedicated tracks that I run at are usually not very clean like Speedline is. B and B gets a lot of sand blowing in off of US 19, NewRed is very bumpy and sometimes dusty too, and like you said Superior is a parking lot track. 48p Xray gears would not be such a big deal now that I have a T2 because they are much easier to change, but when I had my FK05 I hated pulling half the car apart just to change the spur
