Default Thanks

Thanks for the pics (earlier post). I am planning on a similar set up in my new X6. A word of thanks to X Factory. Great service and very quick with advice. I received my X6 kit two days faster than they estimated and that is even with Christmas mailing going on. I really appreciate their attitude toward customers and I am looking forward to running the X6.

Merry Christmas to all.

I mounted a B4 sway bar kit on my X6 last night. I took the rear shock tower off and dremeled a slot in the bulkhead to hold the swaybar. So the bar is sandwiched between the bulkhead and the tower. I then took some tamiya ball ends that you run the screw into and put them inside the arm using the original holes that I had to drill out. Hopefully you get the idea from the pics.

Great job Matt. Swaybar setup looks factory. Hope you can race this Sunday as I'm going to run.

Thats great. Lets hope both are cars work good for a change or where in for another long night. I did get the shocks fixed so no leaks after sitting for 3 days so the new HPI orings did the trick. $2.50 repair so thats not bad.

Word on the street is that BK himself is confirmed for our annual Winter Rage race here in Oregon. Should be exciting. I haven't seen Kinwald up close since the onroad nats were held here.

It will be interesting to see how the X6 car handles. A couple people here have them and i have considered getting a 2nd b4 to convert and try myself. Too many cars in my stable have kept me from doing it though.

Yes, we do expect Brian to be at the Portland race the last weekend in January. Gotta get on the plane tix next week.

Hope all the N.W. racers come out for a chance to meet and run with Dirt. Let's pack the place!

Right on, Penguin. The whole gang, including even me for podcasts, vids, etc. will be there.

Ceci is in the midst of putting an huge load of vids up on both sites -- check 'em out! Belgium, Oswestry, Hot Rod, Pheasant Run. 2WD up now, 4Wd in the next day or so. Big load of podcasts to follow. Then photos from Hot Rod, Pheasant Run, Milwaukee.

We'll get that stuph up just in time to get to CRCRC, I hope, where, of course, there will be lots more.

Anyway, Alex, Paul, Brian, and me, along with the legendary Penguin Daddy!!

Associated front arms

But really I'd get a few spare rear arms, rear toe in bars, and a shock tower base.
