XRAY X4'22 Helpful tips & setups

Tips:

Installing the hex on the driveshaft - Make 100% sure you have the flat spot lined up on the axle with the cutout in the hex as shown in the manual. If you do not do this, it will make disassembly so much harder. The flat spot is there so you can fit a flathead screwdriver in between the shaft and the c-clip to pop it off when you want to remove the hex. Also, when removing the c-clip I would recommend pointing it down into your pit mat/towel so the clip does not go flying and disappear.

Assembling the upper arms - Make sure to grease the threads on the camber screw (302640). This will make assembly and camber adjustments much easier. Also, when adjusting camber you want to make sure you hold the upper arm so it does not twist while you turn the screw.

Droop - It is important to remove the shocks. All team setup sheets will show droop settings with shocks removed. Simply detaching them from the arm will do. This is a change from how we set droop in the past.

Setups:


**If the super mods on this forum were actually right, and handled things correctly, they would not have gone back and deleted all the posts to hide things

***And since they are in the deleting mood now, they might as well go ahead and just delete all the images of the setup sheet, as originally requested via private comms.

It was a setup sheet. Clearly labeled as X4 Ď24 both in file name and at top of the sheet as it would normally be.

however, the link is no longer there. Time will tell how accurate it was.

Looks like a Mugen clone. The steering arms are going to be destroying shocks when you hit the boards.

The existing X4 cars could be called a Mugen clone. The new shock placement is a big differentiator.

'22 has one. It's a shim in the centre of the steering rack.

I've been running xray for a couple years now and am switching to Mugen. Especially now after seeing the 24'. Awesomatix and Mugen seem to be a few years ahead of xray in technology and development. Not to mention the excessive price Xray charges for spare parts, the kits are overpriced for what you get compared to other brands, and it's almost become price gouging levels. Time will tell, but the new shock location doesn't look like a good place for the average club racer on a budget.

How many would you like? If you order today you may have an 800R in a few weeks! Supply is flowing again.

Somebody please bulk-buys driveshafts

The bulkheads still look like they could need some strengthening, as I see some stress concentrations that will cause bending.


Front damper position behind driveshaft. See control arm with "expensive" 3d shape.


The lower A arms look more complex and besides compound there's 4 individual designs.

Lower arms have damper pickup moved down. Nice expensive A arms!!


Active rear shocktowers are also adding cost,


Active shock holders like MTC2

Rear bodyposts are attached to bulkhead again. The rear chassis overhang is still improvable in my eyes.
.


Interesting to see 1.5mm Alu chassis option... if that ever is going to be flat/straight?
interesting going like the MTC2 but with the shocks in a different location its weird set up sheet got released before the 14 part mini video series

Maybe WGA members do the script.
