bigl,

I wouldn't worry about the quality of the XRAY. I have run the car for 3 weeks now and there is no noticeable slop anywhere. The tolerances they have designed into the car ensure that it will operate properly in racing conditions. Dirt, fuel, mud etc. will accumulate under normal conditions. The car was designed to account for those conditions.

kinda hard unless you run indoors. at least where i am the season is comming to a close. if you want durability feedback just ask gene hickerson he's been running it for a while now.

bigl, the only other issue ive seen with new kits the the notch in the diff pins being off center. and from what ive been told and seen, it was a first production run error and hasnt cropped up again since.

Default Tex Racer if you could PM me the information at the K3 stuff

It would be greatly appreciated. This past weekend it was a 3 way 777 battle for the win but I know two of us felt our cars where not that good once the track rutted up. The track got real choppy in the main and the car was a handful. Our cars still bested the other manufactures but I think that was majorally just because of driving skills. On a smooth track the 777 is really good.

Yea the 777 is really nice on those smooth kept CLAY type tracks.
But in the dirt alot of guys use the K3 rear blocks and find a way to get more drop in the shocks.
The car has a issue with coming out of the hole hard with it being in stock form.Not as stable as the K3 was and doesnt handle rought tracks at all.AT ALL.lol.
Some guys have tried K3 towers that supposedly have lower shock mountings.More drop for the shocks.
I will talk to JK and see what all he has done to his car on rough tracks.I have already left Kyosho and with another company right now that I seem to like their car alot better on all tracks.

I will PM you with what JK gets me.
