They managed this with their set up kit. It's plastic and it's expensive. Fastrax sell an even better version, in anodised alluminium, in a smart black case, and lots cheaper, yet the magazines are all praises for the Hudy product, and hardly anyone knows that Fastrax make an even better one that's cheaper
So despite the fact that Xray comes out with a far better superior car to corally, you will not accept that Fastrax make a blatent copy of the hudy setup station? You seem very hypocritical to me. Rick

I think there is a lot of copying going on in the R/C industry, much like any other manufacturing industry. It's nothing new, really; if there's a design that works and money to be made, someone will go for it.

The original Xray T1 did bear a striking resemblance to the Corally.

Just put on some nice graphite 4mm thick shock towers from GPM. Man are these things trick looking on my Yoke SP. Maybe not silver like Masami's car but they are trick none the less. I already have the GPM rear 2 degree hub carriers. I just got the 5 degree front caster blocks and steering hubs from GPM as well today and they are also trick looking. My car is pretty light so the extra weight of the aluminum is welcome and also the blue stuff looks cool.

The overseas cars do tend to look better because is seems they have more access to trick r/c parts. Most of the stuff comes from overseas so it don't surprise me at the cars I see.

The HPI is a cool ride but does require alot of additional stuff to work well. Still a cool looking car.

Masami's car is very cool looking and still can lay down the times. Hara is also blazing fast as well. They are two of the best right now and can win any race they enter at anytime.

Nice, better than the pictures I can show. I don't have a digital camera yet but my work actually said I can spend a few hundred and get one. They told me to do some reseach and then purchase one for me and the owners to use.

I see you have your shocks all together. Which way did you go with the bleeder screws or did you just use Associated caps for now? I see you have a Orion Core stock motor in your Yoke. Have you ran this motor in another car and if so how do you like it compared the the Reedy MVP or the Trinity P2K2 or Green Machine3? I just don't care for Trinity so I'm looking to run another brand of stock motors. I did run the MVP of my buddies last week and it was pretty fast. Need to gear it a little lower but it ran fast times for me. I have not ran a new Orion Core stock motor for a long time. The only one I have run was the Chrome stock that was out a few years ago from Orion.

I love the core stock!!! Its all I run in 2wd buggy stock. So...... I plan that it will work in TC. I did use bleeder screws ------ some screws that have the same thread and length BUT a hex head boy that made it aaaallll easier . So they went together perfectly. Only one problem remains but its not a biggie = the front oneway pulley is a tad offcenter even tho all screws are in right. But since Im gettin the front ball diff Im not too worried

It is probably just out of round a tad from the molding process. Cool you got the bleeders to work because it really makes the shocks even and no air in them. They are a tad bit messy but the end result is worth it.

I will have to get one or two new Core stock motors.

Yah I like the veeery even and non pressurized feel but mainly how each shock was easy to get even. ACTUALLY its gonna take some practice to get NO air in it... cuz right now i do have a bit of air in it its hardly any tho
