Anyone w/ an XI Sport able to tell me what pinions will fit w/ the stock 85T spur? I also ordered an 80T spur, all 48P. I'm shooting for a 4.5 and 4.0 FDR, but not sure if the needed 35 and 40T pinions will fit. Is the motor mount the same as the Zero S? or do we have more options?

Cheers

Cullen

Im pretty positive the 85/40 wont even think about clearing. I have it at 70/40 (3.5FDR) and i only have 1/4" at the most..

I have yet to race mine yet, but it went together easy. The one thing i would recommend to buy with the kit is the bulkheads. they seem really soft and the screws don't bite that well.

SAK-X05/PK (XI Part)
SAK-X06/PK (XI Part)
Thanx very much. Great list that really helps a lot..... lot of work making a list like that haha....
Made the decision definitly gonna purchase the IX Sports version.. will be the first time that I wont be buying tamiya

Started my build last night, will finish tonight. Nice kit with surprisingly good quality for the price.

Are the new composite graphite plastic bits considered an upgrade over stock plastic? How do they differ. I see they are about 15% more expensive.

It's stiffer than stock ones.

Thanks.

Anyone racing these lately? I am getting a big fan for this chassis. Price is right, spare parts cheap, model is durable and has great grip. Perfect for "sport racers" like me My upgrades - SSK driveshaft, aluminum servo mount, rear end stiffener and stabilizer set.

I got myself second chassis beside my shorty setup (see post #175). I made it also for mod with all the "bells and whistles" (Sanwa low profile servo, Sanwa receiver, Tenshock X211 4.5 & 5.5T motor, Hobbywing Xerun V3.1 and Gens Ace Alpha 6000). 1390g with normal Mazda 6 body and LRP CPX tires. Not so good balance though :/

We got today quite a nice race in Trieste, Italy and among the field of latest and greatest models Xray T4 , Serpent Eryx, ... I got 3rd place in A-main mod. I tested both models before the race, the shorty setup needed 100g of strategically placed metal on the bottom chassis to balance perfectly and become legal @1350g. 8.5T motor slightly boosted (5 deg) and turboed quite heavily (22 deg) on Xtreme Stock Xerun and Shorty Gens Ace 4200 gave enough power for my hand

The other model with 4pole motor - I do not know, some problems with ESC/motor, ESC kept telling me overheating only after 1 lap no power till 50% throttle :/

And about stiffer arms - if you make mistakes, these are not for you. They shatter like glass :-p Stock ones are great for me.

As Spring said. they are stiffer, although if you are still in the walls, avoid them like the plague. I bought all graphite spares, and they are very fragile. I broke 4 arms in a few hours (the walls love me)

So if you are at a point to shave hundredths off your time, they are great. if not and you find yourself kissing objects. don't even bother.

I bough replacements in the stock material and graphite. However, I can't break anything if I have nowhere to race. I built this to run at a soon to be carpet track, but that seems like it may never happen.

Anyone know of any racing near central ohio?

Funny, I'm going to Toledo over the break. Maybe I can sneak over for a bit...? Any idea of the hours? Or are they open for practice other days?

Thanks,

Cullen
