To anyone who has used the new closed layshaft bulkheads, how do you remove the layshaft in order to change a spur gear now? Do you have to unscrew the layshaft bulkhead on the battery side from the bottom chassis in order to get the layshaft out?

Thanks

You can slide the right mount out and then the layshaft/spur assembly. On bigger spurs you'll have to loosen the left side mount as well.

Correct.



Has anybody used the white Tamiya or Yokomo blades on their Xray successfully?

Funny thing is that I don't do that with a Tamiya or HB car just Xray.
I think that maybe they are trying to design the car for 'EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY' hence the 10% (?) overdesign.
Having said all that I WILL order one when they come out ...lol
Barry coming back to orange... nice... I knew it was just a matter of time.

Hey guys,

I seem to have a problem with my Xray ECS shafts. At full lock they touch the front of the Chub inside. My Arrowmax ECS shafts don't do that.
Has anybody had a similar problem or a solution for this?
I don't really want to dremel the Chub...
Thanks.

Regards,
David

I have seen that happen when the C hubs are reversed, though they may touch a tiny bit on full lock even normally, but I'd not worry about it, it's rare to be at full lock on most tracks, if you are chances are you need to dial in more steering to the car setup.

Thanks, but Chubs are in the right ( and left) place.

I found the problem:
I tested the shaft with full lock (steering block and Chub touching).
What i forgot is that the T4 platform has slightly limited lock.
I noticed that after connecting the steering rack to the steering blocks.
Now it's working, but the distance between shaft and Chub is still next to nothing.

Regards,
David

I ran mine all winter with heatshrink over the pins and never had problems indoor. I drive with full lock and the heatshrink isn't damaged.

Pre orders? Blimey!
Half of the UK racers have posted photos of built cars on their Facebook pages already
