I bought a T2R and so did a buddy of mine. As luck would have it, I get to put them both together; which is cool because I enjoy it.
However, I am having a problem with one of the drive shaft/axles binding. Out of the eight I have assembled; seven of them work flawlessly smooth...
But no matter what I do I can't get one of them to not bind.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Other than that, both cars have gone together great and I am very impressed so far with the kit.

Besides cleaning the bad unit and relubing, I could suggest checking the blades on the driveshafts. If they aren't on the pins properly or are disformed, this can cause the driveshaft to bind.

Good luck - I just built mine and I'm impressed before driving it

Do you mean the axle side or the blade diff side? If the axle side triple check that that pin is not sticking out one side at all.

It is the axle side, but the pin is not sticking out of either side.
If I just hold the pin in place by placing a finger to each side; it moves freely in all directions.
However, once I tighten the grub (set) screw; it binds in one direction.
I.E. it will move freely left to right, but will bind when moving up and down.

Did you maybe put too much thread lock on the set screw in the CVD, it may have leaked onto the pin and seized it up a little..

You may want to order a new sleeve and pin just for the heck of it, my kit came with 2 rear pins improperly machined, maybe its just a fluke.

The T2 uses the long-style bushing (like those on the FK05) only on the bottom of the C-hub...it has a short bushing for the top.
They will probably only fit the top of the T2 C-hub if you cut them shorter.

Thanks to all for the advice.

I lightly filed and sanded the slots where the pin travels... it is better, but not perfect.
So.. I just went ahead and ordered the new parts.

Has anyone had a problem with the axles or one way clicking as you drive 100% left and right. It's as if the wheel has an inexplainable wobble. The plastic shims are between the outdrives and the housing. And the dogbones are straight. No bearings are shot. The action is smooth until steering linkage cranks to full left or right.

Default Difference?

Quick quesiton, probably a long answer:

What is the major diffs between T2, T2R and T2 007.

T2R is FRP chassis right
T2 carbon fiber
007 the lower deck and all

Main question is are the diffs, shocks, drive train, control arms, etc all the same and interchangable? or are there more differences than the chassis plates?

Thanks
