can anyone tell me how much droop in the front and rear. and how to set the droop. because the droop blocks are for the downstop setting which i can't understand because when you set droop it changes your downstop setting.

Default Delrin Spool

Anyone else try the delrin spool? It seems to have a lot of slop in it. As a result, I end up with a lot of 'lash' within the spool and the blades wear out really quick. The multidiff, when set up as a spool, is solid as a rock. Anyone else notice the same thing?

Default rear toe

Still no luck figuring out why my left side toe in is less then the right. I switched in a new hub and it made no difference. Any more ideas? Is it normal to have to shim one side more/less than the other?

Default T2 Shock foam inserts

Would removing the foam inserts in the shocks help on low grip tracks?

porschejim911, I have just finished reading this entire thread and I assure U that this has been covered. If U do a search for "rear hubs" (in this thread) U should come up with the pertenant info. But in the mean time, if U switch the rear carriers on Ur car, U would notice which one has the most drastic difference and that would be the one to change. If you've already changed one hub carrier and did not see a diff. then it is probubly the other. They did say there was a problem with tolerences in the first batch of T2's and yes, shimming them differently is an option but there were those that said it wasn't that big of a thing and to just run it like it was and not worry about it.

Ref. Page six on a search of "Rear Hub tolerence"

PlainOleDave is correct about the first batch of composite rear uprights. The tolerances have been reduced now.

Keep in mind that if you use shims to even the difference out, the cars handling will change noticeably. The uneven shims will cause the cars left and right wheelbase to be uneven, as well as a few other handling characteristics within your suspension's dynamics.

I thought this was the case but why then would a new hub from a new batch at the lhs also be off?

was looking at some pinions .. and was wondering whether xray uses metric or non-metric (std) pinions that come with the car?

eg. . tamiya apparently makes metric pinions .. whilst robinson has standard (non-metric) pinions?

james - my best guess would be .. don't play on carparks!
the t2 is a racing machine .. not a carpark basher

the standard spur is a 48 pitch gear, compatible with the 48 pitch robinson pinions

I'm very new to carpet and I am attempting to set up a T2. I've noticed that due to the location of the front shocks on the shock tower and A arms in relation to where the rear shocks are mounted the front feels much softer then the rear, even when stiffer springs are added to the front than what is on the rear.

It took a 20LBS spring in the rear and a 33LBS spring in the front just to make the car feel even. Is this something that is common on T2 set ups? Is a stiffer rear desirable by some drivers?

I've notied some team guys that run on foam are using the white 17LBS spring in the rear and a Violet 33LBS spring in the front which follows what I just explained, but some drivers are running my old set up- Pink 30LBS springs in the front and royal blue 22.5LBS springs in the rear. Again that makes the car feel very soft in the front and like a brick in the rear. ...I'm very confused.
