Paul, how do you get a mid length camber link on the xray? it seems like it's either short or long.

Franz: Hi, I talked to scotty about it just yeaterday. Im not sure yet weather i can do it or not, i do have the week open but it is right after two other races and that would make it a month straight on the road. so as of now i am undecided. but it would be nice to come again because those races seem so fun..

fat Bear: no problem, sometimes im not the best at explaining things but hopefully you were able to get some good info out of it.

Brian: Sorry, The post was kinda weird because i was trying not so specify for any one car but yet i kinda was. I guess in my post i didn't say exact locations because i was trying to give a general rule of thumb which sometimes helps people more than just saying where i run them and that's all.
but on the front of an Xray I would consider long on the tower being med legnth, and obviously for foam i would run long as well. for the rear i consider med being short on the hub and long on the tower. Thanks,paul

Ross: no problem, thank you for coming out and supporting the event. this was the second Xray Challenge race, and they have both been alot of fun, i have met and been able to help alot of people. I really think that the xray challenge series is good for on-road racing, it gives people a chance to learn alot about their cars, and i think that keeps people excited about racing.

Ridge_racer: the Pulse motor will not be availible in time for that race, it is still a little ways out. But the Duo motor is honestly the best motor in my and many other drivers opinion right now for 13.5 and 17.5. if your looking for a new motor i would strongly suggest the duo right now.

If you increase the timing you will most likely have to gear down, and i wouln
d not suggest taking the timing back from the stock position.
Hi Paul, my motor came with the screw on the left most hole (2 empty screw holes on the right of the screw. In this position, the "TRINITY" is parallel with the solder tabs. With the screw in the middle position, the word isn't parallel. So is it at zero timing now?

Another thing, the A.B,C phases are not printed on the motor, is it A,B,C looking from the side with the sensor wire just like most others?

thanks and cheers!

Big thanks to Paul and Andrew for all the help at the X-Ray Challenge Race at Jonesboro. Learned alot about the little things I was not doing to make my car run better.

I take my hat off to both you and Andrew for the couples style driving of the Mini-Cooper, next year the servo switches on the radio need to be reversed.

Hope to see you at another Challenge race.

Thomas

Big Dog: Hi, yea i will be around to help. I dont think that i will be racing, but you never know. see you then.

Stocker: right now your motor is in the mild setting or least timing. at that setting the motor still has timing but not much. we normally run the screw in the center hole, we rarely run it where yours is now. the a,b,c, solder tabs are like any other motor on the market. Thanks

Eflite300: Hi, i would start with mid roll centers all around. Middle hole on the front tower and one more stud up in the rear tower for the shocks.

Donor: Hi Thomas. Thanks, i know that we both had alot of fun. it was a great race. hopefully we can do it again.

I think you should put you car down and show us what laps times we should be doing.
