Default Shock Assembly (new to xray)

When assembling the shocks, there are two small o rings, one thinner one that goes around the base of the shock body and the thicker one on the piston shaft.

Do most of you build your shocks without the o ring that goes on the piston shaft? What difference does this make?

Thanks,
Phillip

I sure do! I ran it this past weekend at the Nat's warm up race and it was MONEY! I ran a T2 when they first came out outdoors and it was such a nice car. The quality is so much better than some of the cars I have ran since.

I run the O ring. It does 2 things. First it will help to seal the shock. Some seepage is OK. The second thing it does is it will slow the reaction of the shock a little.

Smile Shock Assembly

Thanks dodgeguy! That is what I was thinking. I just noticed on many of the setup sheets that NO was checked next to "O-ring On Shaft" section.

Appreciate the feedback!

Just to be clear, the setup sheet reference to "O-Ring on Shaft" is actually referring to a 3rd O-Ring placed on the shaft itself after assembly, between the shock mount eyelet and the shock body shaft cap. You always use the thin and normal o-rings on the assembly of the shock.

Kn7671, Those are the spurs I have. I was thinking about it yesterday and thought, Set the gear mesh with the open screw (having the other with little play) and then lift the spur up enough to tighten the other screw and then tighten down the spur once again. Thank you for replying.

And i need a baseline gearing setup
Im running a Novak 3.5BL GTb speed controller and Orion 3200 lipo with rubber tires. Any help would be great

Thanks
I know your problem, I have used the adjusting rods and screw them 1 to 1,5mm up. This is in my opinion nescesarry on bumpy tracks, because if you keep them to tight to the drive shaft it will bend the drive shaft.
For your base-set up go to the x-ray home page and in the corner on the right above click the forum select your car and look in the set-up sheets
for a simulair surface as your home track, I know for sure you find where you looking for.

Buy, Ed IJ t2' 008

Hi, Steve.

I like to ask you about the novak engines, what is in your opinion the difference between the LRP or Speed Passion engines and the Novak.

I just bought my new 008 and I m about to install the electronics. Have you seen any pics around showing a brushless 5-cell setup, where I could get some ideas on how to wire the thing.

Thanx
