I've heard Ralph say that Xray 30 was like Asc 50...

Yes, it's a typo. He was in fact running the 007 US Spec.

None.

The US spec kit will come with a 3.5mm chassis.

It should be available the end of October-First of November I believe.

With the results of the Xray/RCamerica team at the IIC with only 2 weeks worth of testing on the car I would say it is worth the wait. It TQ'd every class that one was run in

I think I finally recovered from the long week in Vegas. It was a great weekend, not only for myself, but for the rest of Team XRAY. The new car is just plain awesome. I knew from the first pack I drove it would be good, and with every run on the track it just seems to get better and better. Mr. Hudy has done a great job with the updates and I think everyone who gets the chance to own one of these cars will be more then pleased. Definetly a must have for all you serious carpet racers out there.

I would just like to thank John and Ralph at RC America for giving me the chance to run such great race cars, as well as Mr. Hudy for provivding the next level engineering (as always). I cannot wait until the next race where I am sure a '007 will be on top.

If anyone has any questions about the car let me know and I will try to answer them ASAP.

30 in AE and Losi is very close to 30 Hudy, When you go higher in hudy the steps become much larger than steps in the others. Example 40 hudy is similar to 70-80 AE/Losi. Most of the AE and Losi are very close with it varying slightly from batch to batch. Trinity is way thinner than all of them.

I must admit that I had hoped to continue running my T1FK05 over the winter months but the results from the weekend are just to much so I have placed my order today for the EU 008 version. Hope to have it before the first round of Carpet wars (26th Nov).
So that means that this months purchases include:
1 off T2-007
4 off Orion IB4200 WC
3 off DNA shells
2 off Moneymakers (CP)

Ouch, but you gotta live the dream I say.

I got my hands on the 007 today... let me tell you, is it ever amazing! The car just looks so trick... I like how the bulkheads are much smaller now. I think that this will be so awesome for carpet racing.

Too bad I have to stick with my T1FK05 for now.

Not bashing you here...

However, last year I did some compression & rebound speed tests with brand new XRAY adjustable piston shocks between XRAY 30/35wt and several AE and Trinity weight oils. Here are a few old posts with the results:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...il#post2062166
< == look at both of my posts on the page

http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...il#post1900997

I agree that Trinity seems to be thinner, but not by much when compared to how much thinner AE oil is to XRAY oil.

IMO from further testing over the last year with four piston holes open,
XRAY 25wt = Trinity 40wt = AE 35wt (best guess for AE)
XRAY 30wt = Trinity 55wt = AE 50wt (all tested on shock tool)
XRAY 35wt = Trinity 80wt = AE 70wt (all tested on shock tool)
XRAY 40wt = Trinity 100wt = AE 90wt (best guess for AE)

Keep in mind also that the amount of holes open makes a big impact in the amount of change noticed for both rebound and compression between the oils. It seems that the difference between oils lessens as you use less piston holes. This is probably why people may see that AE 30wt is close to XRAY 30wt if they were to use say 2 hole pistons instead of 4.

The only way to be sure on what is changing, is to build identical shocks with differing oils (make sure they have the same # piston holes and amount of rebound). Then put them on a shock measuring tool and see if the needle stays in the middle on compression and rebound. You'll find that the difference in compression is slightly different than it is in rebound as well.

Thats why I luv the XRAY adjustable shocks. When changing oils, you can normally get close to what you want within a few clicks.

Come XRAY, give credit for the new chassis where credit is due.

I dont understand why a few guys are saying this....The chassis layout on the 007 is the exact same as the T2. You can interchange the chassis. I have nothing against Jason at BMI as he is one of what I consider good friends but Xray isnt copying anything from him. His chassis all have Roll centers and COG in different sponts than Xray's do. This new chassis is the same way. They didnt copy his shock towers they remain the same.

So I dont know what your beef is but take it somewhere else.....Its hard to say Xray copied anyone when its their own car.
