Default Certainly looks different in the shocks

the shocks look really laid over is there a reason for this ?????? is the chassis longer trhan the original XUT?????
thanks for the link and your XUT II looks really cool.
is it any lighter than the XUT ???

you mean the shock position?
yes it`s lighter than the old one. my truggy have around 4350-4380gramm raceweigth (fuel, life...)

diff are the diffs from the clx. comes with 44 or 46 tooth main wheel (?) :-)
the rear chassis brace also comes from the CLX buggy

the chassis is also longer than the xut I chassis. it`s the same length than the mugen mbx5t has.

yes to drive the XUT II is very easy. its very nice and easy handle. the rear brace is small. we think it`s to small. the XUT has much flex in the rear. it`s good for handling but we think it not good for the cluthbell......

i became a new chassisbrace yesterday. it`s a little longer but i don`t now if its long enough to get more stability. i will test it.

the shock position is good to drive on tracks without holes, astro turf, high grip and corners they are long.

if you have a track (bad track) with many holes and so on you can`t drive that shock setup. we think it`s no way to find a good setup for that. so we go`s and make holes for the shock positon from the XUT I for these tracks.


befor i was a teamdriver for GS i had the X2, losi and the mbx6t. all these cars a fully developed but the XUt II is loyal car. its very good to driving and durable how i don`t have a car before. really!

Default another question

good morning i have another question and it is that over here in New Zealand we dont have astro turf tracks or really smooth tracks and my home town track gets quite rough and as i see it off road is about having roughed up tracks so is there a way of then standing up the shocks as i am going to buy the XUT II but only if it can be run on clay or dirt tracks.
my XUT team Pro with the advanced kit is a great truggy and if the XUT II is even better then i am looking forward to getting one as am saving now for a XUT II and CLX Buggy so will be needing some setup help when i get them..
Cheers

Ok I'll wait and see, but it has already been proven here that radically laid down shocks do not work in the US.

+1

This may only be a prototype for all we know... There could be considerable changes once the US Spec arrives.
