Yokomo to the rescue. Crush the kiddies!

So Destiny is Xenon Racing? Cf. the logo on the arms.
Wonder why they haven't used the Xenon brand, considering their products already have a good reputation.

Xenon do all the plastics, all the metal parts are by Roche the carbon is sourced in the US somewhere.
It's sort of a joint venture between Xenon and Roche

Default great weekend with the destiny

Had a great weekend at the brca club mans at west London raceway, I managed to tq the 17.5 blinky class and win the two a finals.

The car ran faultless all Sunday, didn't have to change any thing on set up.
With the club mans you are aloud two sets of tyres for qualifying and finals, I managed to save a set of tyres for finals, just showing the cars strength on new or old tyres.

Thank you to zen-racing and moody fools

Despite the fact I run Xray, I have to say Spencer's Destiny did look very good on track yesterday.

I'm very happy with the performance of the car. It's fast and easy to produce consistent lap times with the kit setup on asphalt, easy on tires as well. I know it may be a minor point to some..but I really appreciate the quality of the supplied fasteners - speaks to the overall quality of the kit.

I would recommend a few things:

XRay T4 XHard bumper. It's a bit thinner than the stock bumper so I added some thick O-rings below the top bumper plate to take up the slack. You could also trim the bumper's mounting points for the top plate to as well. This eliminated suspension damage and the steering rack from dislodging from crashes.

The new steel drive cups for the spool will be a great addition. The XRay ones will fit but don't appear to be available anywhere.
