I can't imagine the upper deck being as low as the battery brace. Xray must be getting rid of the long bulkheads. I hope they keep the rear cf brace separate. Battery side would have to be shorter, otherwise it won't work. I hope they flip the motor and battery so the lipos will be more balanced. The electronics are much heavier.

It's going to be great to see what improvements X-ray has made on a already near perfect TC. I hope they get rid of the plastic blades and make the plastic diffs the same. Then all I need are some aluminum shock bodies with aluminum screw caps for the o-rings. I guess I'll have to wait on my tweak plate. I'm sure it will be great....lol
The Plastic blades have been around a long time and are a benefit to just about everyne who runs them.

I for one most definitely do not want to lose the blades as they save a tonne of wear and tear on the aluminum of the diffs.

I have run other cars that did not use blades and it didn't take long for the diff outdrives to get notched.

For me, the front cvds have been a problem. The cvd will pop out during a crash and tear up the outdrive. $60+ to replace one outdrive is nuts. Either the cvd need to be deeper in the outdrive or they need a retaining collar to keep them in place. I hope to see these new outdrive people have been talking about. Now, I know those Pro drivers never have a problem, but I'm talking about club level.

Have you guys seen that? Juraj Hudy's article about Xray's recent stuff:
http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/new...cene%20Stories

This sentence got my attention:
"Part of the new technologies is the most modern color-coating and hard-coating fully-automatic robotic line which has been exclusively designed and custom-made for us this new coating line is the most modern and advanced in Middle and Eastern Europe."

It means that soon we gonna have xray alu parts in all kinds of colors

Default I like the idea of high quality aluminum vers.

lower qaulity aluminumbeing coated. I like the polished look anyway. With all the changes that means there are going to be some hicups. I hope they can handle it.

Black shim is 0.75, this means you have 1+1= 2 degree toe-in

Default rubber tires on carpet

Anybody use a tight chassis with rubber tires on carpet? I started with a bmi carpet chassis then went to the stock and set it with lots of flex. The bmi felt a lot better.

i run a medium chassis/top deck flex, CS-22 rubber tyres, carpet.. rather soft springs too.. making the car stiffer just makes it too unsettled and 'drifty', having said that, I use a one-way on carpet

Default Tam shocks?

Hey guys, has one of you fitted Tamiya fluorine shocks to his/her T2 (or T1 for that matter) - is it a direct fit, or do you need to invest in additional caps/ballcups? Dimensions ok? anything more to consider? Thanks!

Cheers,
Paul

it s a direct fit on a T2 (same length +/- 1mm)
on a FK05, you need to adapt the length shock end caps as the stock ones are too short..
But they work great.. you should email a friend in Asia on his gmail email so he can bring back some for you...

You need 3 hole pistons as standard (kit are 2) but for some extra swiss chocolate, he may help also...

you're everywhere, aren't you? Was wondering if you ever performed any work during your working hours

Ok mate - thanks for the feedback! What are the bottom end like, just normal open ballcups with the same diameter as the rest of tam cars (ie the blue alum balls on the TRF versions)? I'll try not to ask my buddy to bring too much stuff back as I don't want to put an INSANE amount of stress on him

Thanks everyone,
Paul

I'm using these shocks on mine. Direct fit as said Patriiick but be carefull of the lenght because with some shoch position on the tower, they can be a bit short so I had to unscrew a little the ballcup
