We just practiced on Sunday.

Saturday, Donny and I both got down to the 8.0's and he had the race won, got hung up, I passed him, he passed me back with a little rubbing which sent him into a pipe and he broke. I won by default.

Sunday's practice session finally broke the 8s lap. We are now changing the layout to use the rest of the track. It will be onroad only and "maybe" once a month let the oval drivers run on it.

The weights that are not threaded are intended to have the screw pass through them. Use the threaded weight on top of the unthreaded weight to "sandwich" it in place.

As for the ackerman location, per the Xray FAQ:

"Unless otherwise noted in the setup sheet you are viewing, please use the inner ackerman position to indicate the location of the servo saver (which is opposite of the composite bearing holder tabs).

Therefore, the forward "dot" in the setup sheets refers to the servo saver being positioned forward and vice versa.

NOTE: The original T2 Setup Book has these positions reversed. Update will be posted in the near future."



Hope this helps.

Default New T2R

Interesting new release for the budget minded.


Wonder what the specs will be like other than the tub chassis.

thanks mike.

I also posted on the xray forum. got same response.

my only concern (keep in mind my balancing tool and front weights are not here yet so I cant try this out)

If I needed to put for example 5g weight on the car, all of my 5g are not threaded. I guess I could always put 10 on both sides and add the 5 to the unbalanced side?

and for my middle weights the 20g is the only one threaded leaving the two 10g unthreaded. What if I needed 10g?


if all the kits come this way, then great, I was just concerned that maybe one of my weights came unthreaded when it should have been threaded.

No problem. We've been getting a LOT more life out of the blades since we started using this tip!

A torch gets the blade hot much quicker. You will have to be careful not to overheat...but it is definitely more convenient to bring a small pencil torch to the track!
I also have a heat gun that has a smaller-than-normal opening on the top that is very useful for this.

The stuff ive used for years to flush out bearings seems to react with the rubber sheilds on the T2, gonna try some different stuff.
Anybody else experienced this?

I may be wrong, but I don't see how they could move.. not with the way you have to turn the shock shaft to change them and how it is fastened around the shaft itself.. But who knows with a hard enough hit. I know I have banged some boards good and haven't had them move yet.

The shock shafts have to be fully extended and even then there is a a notch that you must get the piston into so it locks before you can change the valving. If they are on the car, and you have any amount of downstop in the car, the shock will never fully extend. So I don't see how it could happen, but anything is possible.
