Default Spec-R

How do the suspension components from spec-r compare to the Xray parts? They're about half the price, but are they durable? Have a lot of slop? Anyone used their low friction belts, anything noticeable in terms of performance?

I just bought a pair of ECS driveshafts from Arrowmax-rc, and they are very, very good. The shafts are spring steel and there is zero, or almost no vibration at full lock. The best part is the set costs $50...I got three day shipping from Hong Kong and the total cost was $75.

How about Arrowmax and CSO?
I have a set of XRAY, but I was wondering if the others are as good being that they are almost half the price.

Time for upgrading my T3 11! VBC Racing has just got the right stuff for me. Is CRC the main contact in US? Or shall I purchase off their online store?

Hello guys, I recently acquired a Xray T3 2010 practically brand new, pretty new on this scale and would like to know what are the must haves for these cars as well as what spare parts are required to have and what would be the best place to order them? Also as far as belts how often do they need to be replaced.

Oscar.

Hello Oscar!

Which class will you be running? In my opinion T3 is a perfectly competitive car so I don't see why you should upgrade it. Spare parts depend on how much you crash- from my experiences with Xrays I can guarantee you that you can drive a full season without replacing anything. Do you have local Xray support?

We are having a meeting next Wed in order to establish what motor and esc we will be using since the class will just open in my area but i guess it should be around 8.5-10.5T. So far running xray is just me and another guy with a T3r. it's nice to hear that the car is reliable. Does a set up station like the hudy all in one play a mayor roll in the cars performance?

If you run 10,5T but boosted, with proper ESCs- then that speed is quite high, but again it depends on which type of driver you are. If you have Xray support near you, then you don't have to buy anything in advance. I'm running 10,5T Super Stock (boosted) this year, last 2 years I have driven 13,5T with a T1 (!) and I only replaced the rear belt, just because I felt it should be replaced.

Not for me, sold mine, my car drives loads better with measurement taken off the wheels not the gauges. (set the car up against the wheel tyre combo you intend to run)

Thanks for the help guys, as mentioned previously we have a meeting next week and we are looking to reform the rules for the class. The guys were using the hobbywing ezrun 5.5t combo but we noticed that it was to much speed and runtime was very affected so we decided to step it down a bit.

Would like if you guys could provide feedback on where is the sweet spot for our track (motor&esc, boosted or non boosted), track is huge almost a perfect replica of the Messina track in Italy:

Try this: http://www.unitytool.com/tweakboard/index.html

I had the Hudy All In One with aluminum case, but I sold it and bought the Unity and will never turn back.
