Xray plastic breaks. Smolnik used them at the last 2 races and broke an Xray arm both times. Now he is using my turnbuckles.

Get the lunsford steering rods and servo arm rod.

Do you have a naked pic of it? I don't think I've seen your yet.

Is that you on the left in the pic with Smolnik?

I drove for Xray for 1.5 years and broke about 30 arms, amoung other plastics. I was the one who convinced Xray to make Soft arms that don't break.

The CEN Matrix TR Arena weighs a lot more then the XB8. I used to break the front upper turnbuckle all the time too. I then started using Lunsford or Kyo ones until Xray made theirs stronger. But if you put a turnbuckles that is 4 times as long and made of titanium, the Xray plastic arm will break 1st.

I don't ever take picture of my car with no body. But it was in RCCA last month in the Nats report.

Yeah it is kind of an inside joke I guess.

Without his chin patch he looks alot younger than he really is.
