Originally Quoted By Evoracer I'd really like your comments guy's...the more I look at and read about the Xray,the more I want one. Thanks to those who have already commented.
Evoracer, I have driven just about every touring sedan that has been on the market and I have been racing for almost 10 years. The reason I switched to the XRAY can be attributed to the following:
Fit and Finish - There isn't a touring car on the market that goes together as flawless as this car. You know how with some cars the parts that come in the kit they fit well but when you have to replace broken parts the new parts fit and finish are really poor. Not so with the XRAY!! The same quality fit and finish you get when building the kit is the same for replacement parts.
Quality - This is by far the most durable car on the market. The drivers at the track I use to frequent were brutal. They would use you as a berm for every corner and the XRAY would not break. Now I'm not saying that it doesn't break, because it did have a couple of weak points. The first is the rear shock towers, this was due largely to all of the holes they placed on the EV02 shock tower. This was fixed by simply doubling up on the shock towers or you can simply buy the composite shock tower from the new car. The second week point was the graphite bumper brace, this to can be remedied by using the bumper brace from the new car.
Adjustability - This is by far the most adjustable car on the market. Many cars boast of being super adjustable, but what they can't claim is that the adjustments are easy to make. On the XRAY if you want to change caster settings, you simply reposition your caster clips (less than a second), if you want to change your roll center, remove two screws and move the supsension up or down (wow that took a hole 3 seconds). You want to adjust your rear toe, no more fooling around with different blocks, simply insert your allen tool and turn the pivot ball to the desired setting (shesh that took a hole second). I guess you kinda get the point. I can be really lazy when it comes to setting up a car, if the correct adjustment will take to long I wont make the adjustment. But with the XRAY the adjustments are so easy to make I'm constantly trying new things on my car. Some people warn others to stay from the XRAY because the car has to many adjustments and that it will be to overwhelming. This just simply is not the case. Most of the people I know that purchased the car ran the kit setup for a couple of months, it worked that good. You can make as many or as little adjustments as you are comfortable making and if you make to many adjustments you can always go back to the kit setup and guess what you'll be closed to being dialed!
The car is just flat out fast! I can honestly say that the car has made me faster, not necessarialy because it's superior to any other touring car out there, but because of the total package. Because the car is so easy to adjust, i'm no longer content driving an ill handling car for the night. Because the car is so balanced, it's really easy to go fast. I could go on and on about this car but I think this post would be entirely to long. If you decide to go with the XRAY I guarantee you that you will not disappointed.
