The o,1,1 refers to the shims on that end of the hinge-pin, so 1,1 on the rear of the front arm would be 2mm longer than if they were in front of the arm.

You can run a rdr of 9:1 with the 34t pulleys Just use the 116t 64p spur, or 87t 48p spur, with the correct pinion size.

With the wheelbase use a 1mm shim on the front and rear of the Front arm. On the rear use 1mm on the back of the arm and a 2mm shim on the front of the rear arm. Hope you got that I actually prefer a shorter wheelbase on the car, so swap the rear shims around after if you want to try it out.

And if you want to get fancy, upgrade the shims to the orange aluminium ones, like i did. For this use a0.1mm shim on the rear to get out the slop.

Dude
they didn't allow people to film it
Hence it's too early to show the ideas to public ...

Xray had only one car in the final and that car (Hagberg) finished last. Just wondering if that was the prototype ?

There is NO new car coming out this year and odds are it wont be till the next worlds race till a new car would be out, but they are testing ideas. xray is currently doing a production run of 009's.

I love these discussions, Xray has released a new car in time for chrissie presents every year since their first car, and every year they talk about how their wont be a new car.

Save your pennies, keep the older car for a few more months, and put aside some time in december to build your new Xray
