As far as the car goes it is very well built. I was at the charity race in Glen Burine, MD not my home track. They had plywood for walls. I ended up moving it two feet, I thout I was done but the car keep going. I started sixth and finished fourth. Over all the car is very tough.

Just my .02...cents

Ha, ha...that's about the bigges lie I have heard in years....aluminum bulkheads dont just "break"...you have to really ram them at 50mph into a concrete wall without front bumper and bodyshell to damage something like that, and the most that will happen is that they'll bend....but snap? C'mon...especially Xray T2 bulkheads...they use high grade tough aluminum components which are one of the in the RC world, like Schumacher's.

Seized bearings= you must have not paid attention to the Xray memo concerning the bearings before installing them and running them...once you do this, the bearings are great, like the Mi3's. It does suck that you have to add a bit of oil to the Xray '007 bearings, though...

About bulkheads breaking....c'mon bro...maybe you bent them after a very hard crash against a steel pipe or something at 55mph while trying to chase some nitros with your BL/Lipo and foam tire combo and rammed into the steel pipes w/o front bumper and body shell Maybe that willl bend them, but not snap them...

I agree...It's been really nice to see Schumacher's approach. They got us the parts a month in advance, and then kits...at least I can get basic parts for my Mi3, while my buddies running their TC5's are scared to break somthing cause everything is in backorder...

What do you mean? Xray will send you anything after you first send them a hefty sum of cash for the parts you want replaced
