While searching for a replacement chassis, I've found that Integy has the car and parts. Their selling the un-assembled kit for 89.99....shipping looks like 15 bucks. http://www.integy.com/st_main.html?p...prices=&page=1

They have my chassis too...10 bucks!

After reading through the whole thread I have an addition to the above query. Can you use the standard height sakura x1 rear shock tower instead of the trf416 tower?

Hope to hear from the experts soon.

Cheers,

Only ordered them mid last week, so probably won't have the bits until end of next week, or early the week after.
Got the parts today. Easy fit. Front zero bulk heads, rear XI tower, and add a 2mm spacer behind the ball stud.

Check the layshaft screws to see if they are loose or missing. Also check the layshaft bearings for wear.

We sell this car for $89.99 with $4.95 shipping. Its a special order item though so it takes a few days to get it in. We plan on stocking them with the major parts in the future.

Hello all,

I was just wondering if the X1 motor mount SAK-X03/PK fits the same mounting holes as the SAK-S17/PK?

Just asking as the SAK-S17/PK has been out of stock for ages!

Cheers,
Patrick

How many days would it take to ship it out? I'm interested in buying one.

Not quite, the screw for the motor mounts root arm is out by a few mm. It's 3mm further rearward for an XI mount on zero chassis. I have a zero mount on an XI chassis, just drill and countersink a hole.

Okay, so I'm going to ask several questions here and the answers are relatively important (yes I have read most of the thread, just double checking and making it easy to search for in the thread for myself). I am going to be testing one of these cars for our carpet track locally, to have another "entry level"/moderate price range chassis to get people racing this fall. In our area many people are not willing to drop $400 for a TC6 etc and then electronics etc etc, before they know they like it. From everything I have read, these kits are great kits and can compete with their Tc6 and Xray counterparts.

I will be testing the car as built from the kit to start (so I know what to expect and how it runs, when advising people on the kit). Then I will be getting parts that I hear are very helpful/necessary. Here are the things I know that I should try: 19t Pulley, aluminum spur gear adapter, and the vertical motor mount.

Some other parts I want to have for setups, are 1mil shims, different springs etc.

Our track is approximately 80x36, maybe slightly smaller, CRC carpet. The track will go from a "green" track to a track with a nice dark groove over the period of a few weeks nights or sometimes one weekend race day.

What springs would be good to use that 3racing offers for their mini shock? I will also be trying regular TC shocks with Tamiya shocks later, but want to try out what most people will have/ be able to get easily.

As far as Xi arms, these are supposedly harder and therefore break more easily? Is this correct?

I know there will be more, but for now this is a good start. I want to try to order a kit soon, build and start testing, so when carpet season rolls back around I'm ready to go. I'll probably be upgrading mine with carbon/graphite chassis' and others parts down the road, but I'll get that info down the road.

Thanks in advance.

Can someone please tell me what springs the kit comes with? And has anyone figured out the spring rates for their springs? It looks like their description of a spring tells the wire size, length, and number of turns, but not any sort of force/distance ratio.
