the bushing are small inserts that capture the hinge pins. the inserts fit into larger mating holes in the chassis to secure everything. by using the bushing with an offset hole in them you can change the angles the hingepins are held at by only changing the bushings. no castor blocks to change, no toe or anti-squat blocks to change. just remove 2 screws to pull the block away. pull the hingepin out of the bushings. put in the appropriate bushings for the change you want to make, and put the same block back on with 2 screws. really fast and easy to make adjustments. and the manual that comes with the car has an incredible setup section in it. you can download the manual from www.teamxray.com if your interested in reading up on it, and it also describes how adjustments are made and gives you pictures of it.

Randy,

Aren't you the guy that said you didn't want to turn marshall nitro cars because you didn't want to get your hands dirty? Maybe see ya at Revelation sometime.

It's starting to suck that there is no XRay USA yet... So far my kit came with a bent brake plate, and I'm missing the large O-Ring inside my front diff. Anyone know if its the same size as another manufacturers, or anyone have one I can just buy?
