Default How good is Xrays quality??

Here is a link to a roll my car experienced while leading the final last weekend.
It travelled 6m (18') through the air and rolled 9 times. Stripped the bolt out of the rear C hub. Was easy to fix and no tweak. Try doing that with some other brands!!

The video didnt work for me it says "Windows Media Player encountered an unknown error."

But anyways your experience just goes to show the saying "You get what you pay for" ...xrays may be a little expensive but they are definately stronger than any old brokomo BD or tc alloverthefloor (tc4)

Your point being ? I did worse crashes than that with my MSX (including one ending up in a pole, oops) without damage at all. Your car's only rolling, which don't break cars really, hit something and you'll break.

I've had some real bad crashes and drove away from them with no problems. (BMI chassis) It's the slight grazing on a board that seems to rip off a steering knuckle and take the C-hub with it.

I love my Xray FK05, I just bought a used Serpent Vector. As soon as I sae the familiar looking spring steel axles and drive hubs and Xray quality I was a happy camper.

Another "subjective" post, I have seen every car break more than once. I am glad you fixed it easily though.

Yeah it was on the motor side as well. You could kinder see the car lose it then flick back and head for the plow disc. Make sure your spring collars are even, thats why I hit the plow disc.
