Yes, the wire is for battery, there should be two wires coming out of the box.
In the picture we donīt have the battery inside the box, so thatīs why there is only on wire shown.

Lanscaper: We havenīt had any issues with the link type front end. Lower arm flexes a lot more than with the original upper arm. I think during the whole race season this year we managed to broke only one lower front arm and that was in very bad landing from a big jump.

Best post in a long time GarageJ-thanks. Hows the fit of the 808 body? My X2 is coming in at around 3265 grams depending on tires. Maybe the body and stone gaurds will get me closer to your weight

You X2 is very light. What are the things you change to make it very light?

Mine is light, but garagej's is even lighter. Lightest servos, my own milling done on the cooling head, alu/ti hardware. Just thought of weight when I went to put each piece on

Check the attachments.

On one of the pics is original VS. modified.


We also used the CRT.5 radio box. This needs an adapter to be made to mount it to radio tray. Just a little more work.


One more secret
We made our own link type front end. After the testing it made the car turn more smoother and really improved the handling over bumbs.


Our car weights around 3200 grams, race ready. We managed to drop the weight by milling the chassi, new front upper link, smaller radio box, narrowing the chassis and using narrower 808 body etc.
hey thanks for the tip at least my x2 wont be that fat and old school looking buggy anymore.

808 body fits pretty nice. If you use X2 CRT side guards, body lines follows the chassis really nice. Body mount hole on rear is same, engine hole is same,tank hole needs to be removed a little to the right. On sides of the body, you need to leave some extra material under the cutting line. So I succest you mount the body to the car first and then mark and cut the lower parts.

Hope you got it.

Do you have a pic of the left hand side of the buggy without body, want to know how is the clearance between the pipe & side guard?

befo 5: Check the attachment.

Never had any issues with clearance. Anyway we donīt use the original pipe mount at all.( You can use it though) We attach the pipe to the side guard with zip ties.

Thanks for the pics GarageJ!! I was wondering the same thing. Does your pipe touch the fuel tank though? Are you using zip ties for weight reduction or....?

Already have some X2 crt stone guards comin

We use zip ties to reduce some weight and also it keeps the pipe in place better than original steel rod. IMO

Pipe doesnīt touch the tank. There is about 2-3mm cap between.
We have not melted down any tanks at all with this setup.

BTW. My son who is driving this car ended up in 2nd place overall points on Finnish Championship series. Not bad from 11 year old kid.
He really loves to drive his X2.

Switched to the 1.0 degree rear anti squat plate and the buggy handles very well, no more unpredictable rear end kick out while cornering. Picked up some off power push, but on power is still fantastic and have had several good race results with this setup at 4 different tracks (Dirtburners, Whitehouse Hobbies, REO Raceway and at SIC). Adding the aluminum suspension ball kit this week to drop more weight.
