LiPo Optimized & Ready
The high-competition T2 platform was designed primarily for using NiMH battery packs. With the advancement of battery technology, the T2’009 has been optimized and prepared to accommodate the most popular LiPo batteries packs. Special graphite pads are inserted between the top deck and bulkheads which raise the top deck by 2.5mm to allow the fitting of LiPo battery packs with a height 24 mm.

Lipo Conversion Set
With the enormous popularity of LiPo batteries, XRAY is proud to introduce the LiPo Conversion Set for EU and US Edition cars. This set allows the use of popular LiPo batteries in EU and US Edition cars.

Due to continuous development of LiPo batteries, XRAY cannot guarantee that all LiPo packs will fit due to the fact that there are no set rules for the LiPo pack properties (e.g., sizing).

Optimized Drivetrain
The ultra-efficient XRAY drivetrain has been carried over from the T2’008. With the current trend of high development in the electric motor industry, the drivetrain has been optimized to work efficiently with all most popular motors: stock, modified, and brushless motors. As such the T2’009 comes only with 34T diff pulleys and large 20T center layshaft pulley.

The drivetrain features optimized diffs specifically used for foam and rubber spec racing. For rubber-tire racing the Front Solid Axle is used, while for foam-tire racing the adjustable ball differential is used in both front and rear.

(click to enlarge)

Optimized Drive Shaft Lengths
When it comes to high-competition design, the transfer of power to the wheels is extremely important and as such the T2’009 uses optimum drive shaft lengths specifically for rubber and foam racing conditions.

For rubber-tire racing using larger-diameter rubber tires, longer 52mm drive shafts are used to allow the drive shafts to be positioned more towards the car centerline in the front diff/solid axle outdrives. This generates more overall traction and makes the car easier to drive on low-traction tracks.

click to enlarge
(click to enlarge)

For foam-tire racing using smaller-diameter foam tires, standard 50mm drive shafts are used as the foam tires have generally higher traction than rubber tires and as such the shorter drive shafts give optimum torque transfer to the wheels.

(click to enlarge)

New Super-Lightweight Drive Axles
To reduce rotating weight the T2’009 features super-lightweight wheel axles which have the outer diameter specially ground to remove the material while keeping the same strength thanks to the use of HUDY Spring Steel™ material. The lightweight drive axles reduce rotating mass up to 35% compared to regular drive axles.

click to enlarge
(click to enlarge)

New Rear Drive Shafts
With high-competition performance in mind, the rotating mass of the drivetrain was reduced. The T2’009 features lightweight aluminum drive shafts machined from premium Swiss 7075 T6, hard-anodized and additionally black coated for stylish looks. The aluminum drive shafts are designed for use in the rear, and come in both lengths specifically for EU and US Editions.

To maximize durability and safety during runs (and to better withstand hard crashes), super strong HUDY Spring Steel™ drive shafts are used at the front of the car.

(click to enlarge)

Lightweight Composite XRAY Solid Axle
Rotating mass is one of the most significant influences on the performance of an RC racecar. With the great success of the T2’008, the T2’009 features a unique lightweight composite XRAY Front Solid Axle. The Front Solid Axle has a very stiff structure and ultra-light weight that was achieved by molding the entire solid axle from XRAY’s own self-formulated composite material.

Outdrives are fully exchangeable which allows very easy and comfortable servicing, while the unique drive shaft connection — eliminating the former drive shaft blades — enables direct power transfer to the axle and eliminates play between the drive shaft and outdrives, improving steering precision and increasing overall steering.

The XRAY Front Solid Axle is included only in the EU Edition, but is available as an option for the US Edition.

Aluminum XRAY Ball Differential
The T2’009 features a high–competition, super-smooth Aluminum Ball Differential. Manufactured from the premium Swiss 7075 T6 and additionally hard anodized to increase the lifespan of the outdrives. The differential is externally adjustable and comes factory pre-assembled.

XRAY’s innovative and smart Labyrinth Dust Cover™ diff protection system has been carried over from previous T1/T2 platforms where it has been very successfully used for many years. The special internal labyrinth design of the diff covers prevents dirt, debris, and carpet fibers from getting into the differential, thus reducing servicing and ensuring long life.

The XRAY Aluminum Ball Differential features carbide balls and a high-quality carbide thrustbearing for ultra-smooth running.

The EU Edition features the XRAY Aluminum Ball Differential in rear, while the US Edition features the diff at both front and rear.

Ultra-lightweight Aluminum Bulkheads
The ultra-lightweight bulkheads have been carried over from the T2’008 and are a work of engineering art, where luxury meets simplicity and practicality. The bulkheads are CNC-machined from premium Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum and are strategically machined to provide the lightest possible skeletal support framework for the car. Thanks to the ultra-low platform it was possible to create the lowest, smallest, and lightest bulkheads ever. The bulkheads are color-coated in a distinctive orange color. (Note: color may vary slightly between products).

The rear bulkheads feature a split design, allowing the rear suspension to be mounted to separate bulkheads while the center layshaft sits on its own, super-narrow bulkheads which are positioned closer to the center of the chassis. XRAY’s legendary attention to detail is noticeable in all the precisely chamfered edges. The split design of the bulkheads also enables super-easy access to front and rear differentials and the middle layshaft. Exchanging diffs and spur gear has never been quicker or easier.

As with previous XRAY cars, both front and rear bulkheads feature integrated belt-tension adjustment through the use of adjustable bearing eccentric holders, eliminating the need for a separate belt tensioner. All ball-bearings turn in composite hubs to reduce friction and improve drivetrain efficiency.

XRAY’s attention to the detail and perfection is evident with their TQM (Total Quality Management) approach. Not only are all bulkheads inspected during the production process, but they are also mounted to the chassis by expertly-trained staff to verify that the car’s “backbone” has been perfectly manufactured. So when you open the box, you will see and appreciate the beauty.

2 Different Chassis
There are 2 different chassis available for the T2’009, each specially designed and optimized for the particular type of racing conditions where the car will be used. The EU Edition was designed for rubber tire racing, features a 2.5mm thick chassis CNC-machined from premium grade graphite material, along with slots for 6-cell batteries. Standard 5-or 6-cell battery packs can be used as well as LiPo batteries. The US Edition was designed for 6-cell foam tire racing, and features an ultra-thick 3.5mm CNC-machined chassis of premium-grade graphite material. Both EU and US chassis will accommodate regular RC car LiPo batteries.

(click to enlarge)

US Edition Milled Chassis
The extra-thick, extra-stiff chassis of the US Edition features top milled pockets where all parts are connected to or mounted to the chassis. This allows bulkheads and all other parts to be mounted very low, in fact they are at the level as the standard 2.5mm chassis. The extra thickness of the chassis enables the car to achieve an ultra-stiff torsion and flex setting required for high-competition foam-tire racing. XRAY knows that even the smallest details have an impact on the handling and performance of the car, so every chassis is CNC-machined in-house by XRAY using the most modern German milling machines; these machines are fully robotically controlled to ensure that every chassis meets the tightest manufacturing tolerances.

(click to enlarge)

Centrally-positioned Layshaft
The middle layshaft is strategically positioned towards the center of the chassis on separate, super-narrow middle layshaft bulkheads positioned along the chassis centerline. The middle drive pulleys are positioned along side of the main spur gear and as such the drivetrain energy is transmitted from the motor through the centrally-positioned spur gear to both middle layshaft pulleys… ensuring maximum balance of the car.

click to enlarge
(click to enlarge)

Alu Middle Layshaft
The aluminum layshaft is strategically CNC-machined to minimize rotating weight without compromising strength or integrity. The hollow layshaft is perfectly round with zero runout, eliminating drivetrain vibration and producing a positive balance. Composite pulleys key solidly to the layshaft.

Proven Suspension Geometry
From the narrow arms, through the tiny front and rear suspension blocks, to the small and robust steering blocks, every suspension part has been specially designed and optimized to provide responsive racing characteristics in all racing conditions. Over the years XRAY has successfully gained and utilized extensive suspension geometry knowledge and self-developed suspension stiffness technology, which have been utilized when designing suspension parts. The ultra-lightweight suspension parts are molded from a special composite material that makes the parts very light yet very durable to withstand the rigors of high-performance racing.

The T2’009 features optimized suspension parts carried over from the T2’008. The arms feature a single optimized shock mounting position and integrated anti-roll bar mounts. The rear arms feature two anti-roll bar mounts for super-fine adjustment of the anti-roll bar.

The EU Rubber-spec Edition features standard hard composite mixture arms (marked “H”). The US Foam-spec Edition includes well-proven, extra-hard arms (marked “XH”) manufactured from specially-formulated composite compounds which makes the arms extra stiff.

The front suspension arms allow 3mm adjustment of front arm position.

HUDY Spring Steel™ CVDs
The T2’009 constant velocity drives (CVDs) are exclusively manufactured from special world-renowned, top-secret, self-developed HUDY Spring Steel™. The T2’009 drive shafts are the world‘s tiniest yet most durable driveshafts used in electric touring cars.

The drive shafts lengths have been optimized for both rubber- and foam-tire racing, and as such the EU Edition features new longer 52mm drive shafts while the US Edition features standard length 50mm drive shafts. Spring steel drive shafts are recommended to use in the front only.

The drive shafts are strategically lightened – see the hollow end of the dogbone – to guarantee the lowest possible weight without compromising strength or durability. These specially-lightened drive shafts can only be manufactured from special HUDY Spring Steel™ which was developed for extreme racing conditions. The drive shafts have been additionally hand-ground for maximum precision and to provide true rotation and unbinding drivetrain operation.

Premium HUDY Greases
The T2’009 includes premium HUDY Graphite and Diff greases.

#106210 HUDY Graphite Grease is a high-performance, advanced-technology semi-fluid lubricant which incorporates both extreme pressure additives and finely-dispersed graphite for load carrying. It is intended primarily for the lubrication of rotating parts and loaded gears. In addition to providing outstanding load carrying, it is formulated to have excellent adhesion and resistance to "fling-off" under extreme conditions. The grease reduces wear and increase the parts life.

#106211 HUDY Diff Grease is a high-performance, model racing car general-purpose silicone based grease, formulated to provide extra protection against wear, corrosion, and water. HUDY Diff Grease is recommended for most types of rotating and moving parts in any RC car. This silicone grease is especially well-suited for use in ball differentials, axial (thrust) bearings, and in any other ball-bearings that require grease. Suggested for use in any heavy-duty application where high pressures or loads are present. This grease provides excellent protection against rust and corrosion while resisting water wash-out, making it particularly suitable for racing in wet conditions. The silicone grease operates within a large temperature spectrum and will work in all extreme conditions up to and over 100°C.

Optional Battery Holder
Being a high-competition racing car, the T2’009 uses tape to hold the batteries to the chassis to reduce unnecessary weight. HUDY Fibre-Reinforced Tape #107870 is recommended by the Team XRAY factory racing team for high-competition racing.

The chassis also features holes for an optional graphite battery strap for 6-cell battery pack (#306163) which features the XRAY Smart Battery Holder System™. A captured aluminum wheel enables you to easily secure the battery strap without clips. Easy, smart, quick.

The race-oriented XRAY battery holder was designed to ensure that it won't affect chassis stiffness even if you tighten the capture wheel excessively.
