Thanks!
both fit.....I used a 12th scale servo because that was all I had......works good enough to not change it.......also saved on a little bit of weight

Which front springs you use on carpet with R1 Ride rubbers? I tried today Ride R1 with original box setup and the car tends to slip from the back, much better with Solaris tires S-TFF0MS1H/ S-TFRSSS1S with box setup, strange thing thinking this car was designed with R1 Ride tires in mind. The question is will it work better with softer front springs with RIDES?

Regards

I found, for ride r1 fronts the soft (silver) Tamiya springs work best.

Looking at Janīs last ETS setup (Muelheim Kaerlich) it says 4,5 mm (9 x0,5 mm shims) over steering blocks. I have changed roll center using 4 mm shims under lower front arms but I donīt have space for more shims over steering blocks (just the 5 x 0,5 mm as original instructions manual)

Some ideas?

Regards

Default Kingpins

Just got a X1 kit and as I was putting it together I realized that one of the kingpins doesn't have the groove for the e-clip. Contacted Xray now I am waiting. Any ideas about what I can do in the meantime? Thanks.

Hi All,

After a disastrous experience with another brand of F1, I'm looking for a car that will have the quality that I am expecting for my $.
Two cars are currently on my radar and the Xray is one of them. Apart from being hard to buy one, as most of the online stores I frequent are out of stock is there anything else I should look out for, and/or buy to compliment the kit?

I'm also looking for a car that can handle different tracks, with varying levels of grip without having to drastically alter setups, is the Xray capable of this or should I be looking elsewhere?

I plan to exclusively race on outdoor asphalt tracks using rubber tires, and no intention to race on carpet at this stage.

Regards
Rob.

Greg said NBHC will have some soon. in the next weeks from what he said.
Kebab ran his last week and was happy out of the box. i think it needs a bit of spring fiddling

Hi Rob,
I have read about your experience with the other car. Very unfortunate story.
The X1 is very nice car. I could compare it with yokomo YRF1, which I own too. The X1 is much better for me. Out of the box runs great. The metal and plastic parts are of much higher quality compared to the YRF. Much more durable too - it have experience some serious hits without change of the setup. Been an xray it holds setup really well.
I am still due to run it on asphalt as it was issued at the beginning of Dec 2014. I doubt anyone will have experience on asfalt apart from the xray team drivers. With the prototype Martini won an ETS event last summer.

"Disastrous experience".... Rob is that the Street Jam you're talking about?

With my X1 it handle quite well with the kit setup at Castle Hill (I used the sideways battery setup) and i found just changing tires changed the handling.

Hey Rob,

The X1 was run at our latest round of the VIC cup series and besides it looking awesome it was awesome on track out of the box. Track is an asphalt netball court surface but was prepped with sugar water to increase grip. Check out the article on rcformula1 to see some photos and results.

Looks like an awesome car.

Rob, all questions I asked myself before I ordered, haven't got mine as yet, been pre-ordered with RCmart for a month now. They say it will be in by the end of the month, but not holding my breath.
Like you, I'll only be racing out door asphalt so keen to see what people suggest.

The reason I chose the Xray is because I know it's going to be tough.
I've never had the confidence to push my other F1 cars as hard as I know they need to be because 1 small mistake and your day is over. I don't think the XRay will be as much of a problem.

Yeah the front arms on my 3Racing FGX were as fragile as glass. I used to freak out when guys would drive within a foot of it on the track! Although my F104 is pretty tough.

Does anyone know a way of 'polishing' the plastic pivot balls that go into the suspension arms.
The arms don't move very freely at all so I need to find a way of making the balls slightly looser in their holders.
