I don't use the 7000, but I do use the Reedy 5500 and it gets very close to the motor. I use an O-ring stretched around the battery stops in the center of the car to help push the battery away from the rotor on the motor.

Sorry to disappoint. It wasn't for a lack of trying, that I can guarantee.

As a member of the freshman class to invite you had a great run. I hope someone got you a video of your near win round. The force of the crowd was with you!

Andrew Hardman is with Yokomo, he always ran Xray, and was always quick, guess he must have made the switch, great guy always helpful

Sorry, that must have come across as a slight on the Xray drivers and I'm sure you were all trying very hard in a very tough field.

Was just hoping the Xray's would pressure 'him' a little more

Hope to be at the Worlds in Oct, so you can come and hand my arse to me

Without Hagberg there, I didn't really expect a super strong showing from XRAY, no offence intended to the other guys on the team, but they just aren't quite at that same level. At least not on a consistent basis. Guys like Volker and Rheinard seem to be on another level from almost everyone else on the planet.

Damn aliens

1 or 2 of each arm (f/r), caster blocks, hub carriers (f/r), driveshaft blades, and one set of body posts... these are really the only things I have ever broken.

+1 Blades, replaced about 4 or 5 in a few months.

Haven't broken a single part in 2-1/2 years. I've replaced blades one time each season. O-rings and bladders incase I want to completely refresh the shocks. One front arm, one rear arm (both are universal side to side). I keep very little for spares.

I have more in springs and shock oils than any parts.

I seem to recall 57mm from end to end measured with verniers (not to the centre of the mounting balls)

No doubt. I came from a Corally and Associated and over-bought on spares with my T4. Since November of 2012 I've broken 1 c-hub. Initial buy in was a bit higher but operating cost of this car is next to nothing.
