building the 009 (first 7-8 hours [just the build])then puttin all my electrics from my 007 into the 009 and then going thru the 007 and puttin my sons electrics into it from his fk04 then doing the balanceing act and of course the setup board/tweek station my butt/legs ached all day sunday from sittin in a wooden kitchen chair for almost 31hours i took a smoke break about every 2 hours but it was all worth it sunday night
i havnt built a kit since 2001 (tc3 FT) and the xray kit was very clean to build all you had to do was put it together (99%) unlike the associated cut, sand, check build....
i wish the old color springs would work on it though with those springs it will not go below 6mm ride height
I just put the light blue springs on the front of mine today and I set just over 5mm.

Will the RW XRAY-Series gears fit in the 009's? I read that they fit in the 007's and the 008's but it didnt say anything about the 009's.

i did three chars for vta this weekend using these battery straps i like them but i did add a second set of standoffs to help support the strap
with the strap i got my car to balance @ 1433g
i will have pics posted soon in my thread about these straps/lipo protectors
i call them
also i would think it would work on many other cars that tape the battery in and H.K.S. hobbies has them cheaper

asphalt shocks all the way in in the front, one from inside rear, soften up the bars 1.3/ 1.2 for club level grip rear bar about 4mm from the end.. and adjust to your liking..
