How about the ball bearings? Are they mostly in the same sizes as the T1FK05?

Not sure if this is off topic or not, if it is i apologize.
1. http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/pro...48&kategoria=0 that is the "special" xray stuff but any light bearing oil will do the job
2. not sure but as far as I remember they use to be pre-oiled on the FK05...

You have to reduce the width of the fronts to stop them binding.

if you want to run the foams, which come in the box, you need to shave the inside edge of the foams/wheels on the truer to stop them binding on the knuckle.

Not exactly what I imagined when the car was carpet ready.... and seeing the team drivers are already trying a non-flex top deck....not exactly great.

Yes, you could shim them out a mil or so by adding a spacer outside the HEX, but that would widen the track width and give less steering.

Also, if you want to run PRS spur gears, which I do, you need to dremel the heads flat on the screws on the layshaft, and file away some of the chassis to stop the spur gear binding.

If you run a JR servo (I have the 9000s in there) you need to shim the servo back A LOT to stop the arm binding on the top chassis. (Maybe 5mm) so the servo hangs off the edge of the chassis by quite a bit. I am putting a futaba low profile in tomorrow.

its gonna be intresting to see how many others "with the car" agree or disagre with you......

and no matter what the team drivers are always gonna be trying new things to see if they find something better, no matter what brand of car it is....

I don't know...I was checking out a T2 without all of the screws yet installed in the top deck or bulkheads and it was already significantly stiffer than my FK05 with adjustable top deck..

The team drivers will always be continually testing new parts. Did you also notice that the wide deck that was shown didn't have any standoffs mounted on the outside holes?

What exactly are you implying?

I was running today with 1 xray team driver, same issues, other than the servo, as he was running a futaba.

I run a KO servo in my T2 and i agree with Brit racer. I had to shim it around 3 or 4 mm in order for it to stop binding against the top deck. The Servo now hangs off the chassis slightly.

On a better note, I ran the T2 on Mid-high bite ashphalt today and the car is a weapon! Ran it with Red XRAY fronts, Violet rears in the stiff configuration on foams and it was really dialed....

I was implying that 20 people that dont have the car yet wont have seen what your talking about, so there was no reason to hear from them "yet" I read this thread and the one on the xray forum and the cars have been out for almost 2 weeks a lot of places, and your complaints are really the first I have heard, granted most, if not all of them run rubber tires, so they wouldnt have found the tire rubbing problem, but they all run servos and no one has mentioned a problem other than that there is no hitech splined arm included in the kit, and I was totally suprised that you would think the team drivers arnt supposed to try new things or run anything that didnt come in your box, and so you want to run an aftermarket spur gear that mounts different from the xray gear and you have to modify something !!!! DOH I gues xray should have anticipated what you were gonna do.......
