Default Problem with T2 Graphite Battery Strap w/ Alu Stands (Set)

Problem with T2 Graphite Battery Strap w/ Alu Stands (Set)

Hi, i've just bought the graphite battery strap and i found that when i try to tighthen the screws to lock in the battery, the graphite plate is about 1-2mm longer and it doesn't fit in the aluminium stands. Have i installed it wrongly? There are no instructions given and i mount it on the chassis plate near the battery. Need help. Thanks.

The end of the strap with the thumb screw is slotted. Look at it closly. You will see what I'm talking about. It usually is stuck. If you pull on it, it should loosen up and be the correct length.

Hi cornerspeed,

Thanks for the reply. Are you refering to this part in the picture below?

So if i pull this up, the screws will loosen up and will fit?

Yea, that's it. Actually the CF is slotted(hole is elongated front to rear)so no, don't pull up. Pull/Slide forward or back to free it up.

I was just curious as to how many guys are running sway bars on their T2. I race on carpet and do not run any and the car seems alright.

I was thinking about trying them out. Is there a big diffrence with the sway bars on the car?

I'm not much of a carpet racer, but you may want to indicate if you are running foam or rubber tires.

Harold,

What are the common parts that break/need replacement on the T2?

Thanks
