Anyone know of some low friction belts for Xray? or perhaps some that fit from other makes?

Many thanks in advance...

Top Photon rear belt fits great. They make a low friction one. It's white.

Soak your belts in wd40. Low friction.

This is not necessary. The belts are already low friction. I used used belts at Birds and my car was extremely fast in stock. No reason to do anything to the belts beyond setting the correct tightness.

Had my first proper race with the T4 today. I'm very pleased with it. Coming from the TRF417X I found the XRAY harder to drive, with kit settings, but faster. If the driver could keep up with the car it would have been great! After a bit of tuning to make the car easier for me to drive I sneaked in the A final. Now just some small adjustments to make it handle even more to my liking =]

We used to soak belts in WD40, and I mean put them in a bath of it overnight and then let them dry out thoroughly with Schumacher belts.

It never weakened them, but I also can't be bothered to even attempt it with Xray's belts.

Default lipo strap

Hey,

Has anyone tried Xray's new carbon graphite lipo strap? Will it fit on the T3 12 or is it just meant for the t4?

Please keep in mind, there isn't really anything extremely special about Andrews cars, it just comes down to attention to detail and being thorough with EVERY aspect of the car. If you don't have the basics down(prep), you can't properly test setup changes and you definitely won't know their true effect. Lastly, I am lucky to work on a talented young drivers car, because sometimes, the car isn't as good as it looks, he will just wheel the shite out of it regardless. At the Snowbirds I was fortunate enough to get it right where HE wanted/needed it..

As for wheeling an Xray, I just might, but only to improve our testing program. I use to race years ago, but now I focus on my real car instead.
Corey, I noticed some of the other successful drivers at 'birds used the graphite arms. Did you guys do any testing with these?
