Any tricks on rebuilding the shocks? First time with 25% rebound no problem following owners manual but after a few weeks later I can't seem to get it to work again to achieve same rebound. Tried following same instructions again with no luck. I heard the stock bladders swell up over time? If any of you are rebuilding it differently with success please share

I got same issue with 1 damper. I just cannot get the re-bound down and after too much trying I get air inside, I will try to hold the damper upside down and open the bottom cap instead tmrw, I found some tips about doing that.

Anybody have any advice on reducing off throttle oversteer? Finding the rear swaying out too much coming into the corner and wiping too much speed.

HI,

I installed today a standard servo Orion 1017

but it doesn't fit good, I had to remove all the shims that I used with the first low profile, removing the adhesive label from the servant and given a narrowed down to the plastic of the steering group that touched but
I have little space, the manual talks about a minimum of 0.5mm of space

i removed the shim on servo but touch
T4 is built only to serve low profile?

hi all,
i have a question regarding the upper clamp position in the front... the T4 manual says that, as initial asphalt setup, you should use position 1 on both front and rear... but the same xray, in the "T4 basic asphalt setup sheet", says that you should use position 2 in the front upper clamp.... and most setups i see on the net also are on position 2 in front... can someone clear this aspect ? it would help...thanks,

Same issue on mine with a Savox servo. I trimmed down the thickness of the servo ears to help remedy the rubbing, but it still touches the bellcrank arm. It actually rubbed off the sticker on the servo. To supplement this, the bellcrank arm could be trimmed a little too. Certainly not ideal.

We noticed last night there appears to have been a running change to the servo mount. The older kits have one "nipple" that keys into either the chassis or the brace that goes across the top of the servo. Newer kits have two nipples.

Now you know about your XRay's nipples.

My Xray Nipples appear to be optimized!
