What is a good website to find after market parts for my T2? I am looking for rear alumn. hubs....I knew of a website (now forgot) that listed a lot of different manufacturers down the left column and you could click on each one to view as to whether or not they made up grades for your particular car or not!
If anyone knows what the heck I am talking about that would be great.

Default Alum parts

if you're going to get Aluminum parts, go with Team Tamale.
very durable (way better than Xray's bend-a-easy aluminum) and great fit and finish.

Yes, but I was looking for some other manufacturer, other than Xray.
I too heard they are kind of soft.
Thanks though!

it is worth the wait. they are the best machined parts available for xray. they use the same bearing as as the stock plastic hubs and they don't bend.

Larry at teamtamale.com, he's the owner and maker.
he might be able to tell you when his next batch is going to be cut...or he might have them but hasn't updated his website...not sure if gets time to update his webpage often.

I agree with theisgroup...i've had the TeamTamale stuff on my xrays...darn things are almost indestructible, he uses the best material out there.

worth the wait....you won't regret it.......also the alum steering knuckles with the ackerman are the bomb.

Hey Chan-lover, the Tamale stuff is the way to go. I bought the Xray knuckles and Tamale rear hubs. The only difference was the price hike for "Xray". I thought the Xray quality would be better based on their pictures but it just wasn't so. See ya at the track.

Default rear toe in

I've been going over my car for like an hour and can't figure out what my problem is. When I put it up on the set up board I have 2 degrees of left toe in and 3 degrees right toe in. Left side has 1L hub right has 1R hub. Same number of spacers on each side. Pins are straight. According to the instructions it should be 3 degree on both sides with the spacers I'm using. Any ideas? I have the bmi carpet chassis. Anybody have a similar problem? I'm tempted to used different spacers on each side but I feel something must be wrong.

Check to make sure that your screws for your hinge pin mounts are not bent..

They look straight.

Any other suggestions? I'm gonna tear everything apart I guess but some suggestions of what to look for would be great.

The easiest way to check the screws is to monitor them as you tighten or loosen them...of the head stays centrally located ...then you're ok..if the head moves in a circle...it is bent and should be replaced.

Isn't this the same problem people were complaining about when the T2 first came out - unequal rear toe. Here is the "official" response from Xray about the issue. XRAY Announcement on T2 Rear Uprights.
