Xray emailed me back. They updated the kits and this is the correct chassis. They removed the posts so people would have more room.

It was great, I hear BOOM and joey is crying, falling to his knees over his broken xray. It was sad, but inside i was laughing because he calls my cars brokomos every time i see him.

Lmao I can relate the only thing the roles are reversed. One guy always busts my chops about my xray, this weekend he broke two parts and couldn't race so of course I had to throw in a few jabs about his yokomo parts availability. All in good fun

Thanks for the input guys. Will start out with a 19t and go from there.
