I agree with what Niznai has said, + 1 on that.

The parts on the xray are very strong and durable as well. Another good point is that xary is very sensitive with its adjustments, meaning that one change here, you'd notice it immediately on the track.

before, it was a great kit for carpet, but this year, it's great for asphalt too!!! 1 & 2 finish at the recent ETS finale

I'm lovin' my T4 '15

What final drive for 10.5 Blinky for large-ish asphalt outdoor track 130'x70?

Also what spur/pinion will get me there? 64 pitch.

Thanks for the help.

Default New Low CG Carbon Chassis

Hey guys, now available is our new LCG Carbon Chassis:



It is cut from 2.0mm quasi weave, so the flex characteristic is a lot like a stock chassis. The pockets are 0.5mm, therefore lowering your electronics by about 0.75mm over the stock CF Chassis. Another benefit is the motor pocket is nearly not there, so this almost completely equalizes the flex side to side on the car.

We used this chassis on asphalt with a lot of success during the EOS Asphalt season. The car generated lots of grip on our low-medium bite, bumpy asphalt parking lot tracks and maintained good steering throughout. G-Man Herve was able to take down the 17.5 TC title for the 2015 Texas EOS outfitting his car with it.

I also did some testing on our carpet track and honestly, it felt a lot like an aluminum chassis with slightly more response. It certainly decreased traction rolling and made for an easier to drive car over a standard CF Chassis.

Nice idea (as always)!

I am running on medium grip asphalt and carpet tracks mostly. Should I go for the 2.0 or 2.25mm version?

It all depends on how much flex you like. The 2.25 might be slightly stiffer than the stock chassis and the 2.0 is pretty close. I like the 2.25 on carpet a lot, and it was fantastic on low bite asphalt, before the grip came up, my car was better than most other cars on the track when I did the testing.

I think the 2.0 with some bulkhead braces might be very close to the settings on the 2.25 as well. So perhaps the 2.0 has a little more versatility. The other advantage of the 2.0 is that it allow to lower the roll center a little bit more.

Please could you let me know the lowest teeth spur gear that works on the Xray T4 without any modification.

I still use this as my reference for FDR and spur/pinion combo for the T4 '15.

This isn't mine but got it from another Xray thread here, T3 2012.

I did see that pdf, but the lowest Xray Spur I can find is 78T( 64 pitch). I'm wondering if any aftermarket manufacturers make Spurs with lower number of teeth?

Are the pivot balls in the lower shock mounts supposed to be free like the upper pivot ball mounts, or stiff? My upper balls move with that 'engineered-in play' but there is no free movement in the lower ones. Everything else on my car is perfect, aligned, and running beautifully.

Yes they should be free, you may have screwed the plastic ball cup too deeply on to the end of the shock shaft which can make the ball tight in the cup.

Yes lots, I use RW spurs with the XRay Offset, if you search this thread this question gets asked a lot I believe others are Panaracer and I can't remember the others without searching the thread

and since I've been pestering you all so, I thought I'd share a few pics I took today. I've been running HPI Super Radial tires until today which have less overall grip but break and slide more predictably and smoothly on the unprepared pavement I run on most often. These Sorex slicks are nice though so far.

And the Hitec servo wire bundle looks messy in this pic but it's actually neatly coiled in a loop and zip-tied in a stack above the servo attached to the top deck. Everything is really neat.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, the standard driveshafts are 50mm. I'm looking for the shortest driveshafts and I've found CSO driveshafts that are 44mm. Does anyone know of any shorter driveshafts?

the front is 52MM and the rear is 50MM.

if you will be using 44MM driveshafts, they are designed for the front and you would also need to buy aftermarket spoolcups for the 44MM to fit.
