Anyone try the new graphite/ composite front end parts yet? I just put mine on today but haven't had a chance to run it yet.

@ Peakki so the old retainer's from AE 4640 will also work?
@ Migigu is it correct that you are running an LRP WT Flow without a Booster or Lipopack?

Claude
Old retainers, maybe, but the alu ones are way better. Good fit for AE springs!
I really don't remember so well that have I used old AE retainers.

Tires are CRC and a trued to 41mm rear and 40.5mm front.

Same motor, ESC, receiver, servo (tiny little airtronics one, can't remember the model but mounted it directly to the chassis with one custom screw hole so not even using the servo mounts), servo saver and body (AMR Light Weight). The XRay is definitely a tank of a 12th scale.

Perhaps this is something that can be worked on for the next version? Who knows. Going to get a Hiro Seiko screw kit for it but can't see that shaving off 15g considering the little number of screws on the car.

Well Xray X12 2014 & 2015 cars have more parts in some places compared to CRC.
CRC antenna mount is really light. Xray antenna mount&cf plate&alu stands weight >5g if I remember correctly.
Rear end is really solid in Xray, I think that the alu parts are heavier&stronger vs. CRC ones. Shock maybe weights more also?
Xray has big steel balls in side links also...
So xray is a bit of a tank...

Send a note to Avid ..

In the meantime .. they make the 4.9mm studs and you can use the TC ballcups (open or closed) to fit.

Is really hard to find 4.2mm ball studs. I now use in steering knuckle, asso ball cups, and titanium ball studs of a different brand that I do not remember.

I hope someone knows more

Ive been out of the RC scene for 8 years and its not until recently after a trip to a local track with my ex-colleagues that I decided to try and get back in it. I decided to splurge and get myself a 2015 spec X12, Turnigy batteries, esc and motor (did some research before I purchased, Im not looking for racing, but something to bash around at the track and 1/3 the price of others is too good to pass up)

Lipo batteries and brushless wasnt a thing when I still played with RC 8 years ago and Im getting confused. The battery part I think I understand, but the whole motor rating is a bit confusing. Copying one other guy here a few pages back I bought a 10.5T motor, but still confused as to how to gear the car. Anyone have any pointers or updated links on the rollout calculation as respect to brushless motors?

Hopefully I will get my car soon and start building.
