Hey Switch,
Any 1/10th scale buggy rear's and any 1/10th scale 4wd buggy fronts will fit....... Proline,Losi,Panther......... all are great.... just depends on the terrain type you're running on for the tread pattern...... The XRS should be a great car...I've been thinking of getting one for a backup or just another X-10.... eather way ...their a good choice....

Awesome. That makes things easy as my lhs has proline 4wd fronts(and 2wd rears) in their walls. I did get mixed thoughts about it. One person said it doesnt handle the rough stuff very well, but another said he saw one in action, and it handled very well. I have also read online that it is suitable for the rougher offroad. I really might have to give it a try.

I've been running the Inside Job's from proline for a while and just started to run some panther's...... Insides Job's are great and the Panthers have been very nice too..... I really like them...especially since taper pins 4wd fronts can be a pain sometimes to get....

the car also looking at it, seems more for the clay or blue groove tracks. just looking at it, doesnt seem to be a rough track car. but i could be wrong. .
I guess I am the second sponsored U.S. driver then! I haven't recived my car yet, but when I do I can't wait to get it on the track!

tradhunt, what do you think of the Inside Jobs? I was thinking about getting them for some clay tracks I might race at.

Hey Kendall,
I really like them. Seem to grip really good.....You're gonna like the car very planted and very reactive in the air... I'm selling my BJ4we trying to thin out the heard a bit but might get another X-10 for a back-up.... I think you'll be very happy with it.... especially once you find the right setup....I'm no pro but if you need help or have any ? feel free to PM me or e-mail me.... George

Hey Kendall or Tadhunt,

I'm trying to find the contact info for sponsorship in the U.S. and don't seem to find it. I'm really interested in this car and used to run for MRC as a factory driver. Most of the V2 stuff on that car was "influenced" by myself and another factory driver. I actually spoke with Richard and Ian at the Rcx show in '05 but never could reach them directly. They were really interested in me running the car but some personal stuff has kept me out of my full race schedule.

Can you help a guy out and e-mail or Pm me the info. I'm out out on the west coast in the Sacramento area. Won most of the 4 wheel events out here...Thanks

Johny had some issues in a couple of the qualifiers.
He ended up qualifiying 10th in the b and finishing 5th.
He had a great showing for his first race of that magnitude.
Look for him in the "show" in the future.

later

Hello guys, itís my son Johnny that is one of the drivers for TTech. At the MOD Nats last weekend Johnny qualified 10th and finished 5th in the B-main. We were having problems with our Novak GTX speedo, no real rip to it. We got help from Tekin now and I donít see that as a problem any more. We also run for Panther Products and ran Bobcats in the front and the new Switch 2.0 in the rear, both were the soft compounds. Before last weekend we did not have the car really setup correctly. When its build right you can and will be able to follow the setup sheet that comes with the kit. When we first hooked up with TTech the car they gave us to start with was a demo car that had made it rounds, at the MOD Nats was a different car and its performance reflect that. As far as handling rough tracks, the track at the Nats had its rough areas. On Friday they had a mock qualifier and my son was able to beat Adam Drake. There was a pothole that Adamís car did not handle well and it helped his car fly off the track twice. The X-10 faired better and we will take that win with pride, you never know when you could get that chance again.
Kendall, keep in touch, as teammates maybe we can get this car on top. Good Luck.

John and Johnny
