Cute site. I do hope the pack gets to my shop before christmas. I would love to run the car with the electronics that were made for it. Then I'll get the 300 motor conversion. But it has to run first!

A while back, Ofna sold a red 'brick' receiver pack. The cells were nice and square, but I couldn't remember what size they were. Anybody have a pack like that? They also sell the cells individually. I wonder if you can stack 6 together and fit them on the stock chasis. How do you solder something like that, I wonder...
Novak also sells a brick pack like it that is now NiMh. Would probably fit perfectly but with more power than a 5 cell pack.

Yeah that is a major problemo ... I took the whole wheel assembly off and then used an allen key through the rims to push the wheel out. That will really mess up the brake disk decal.

Anyone knows anywhere to get options? I mean 4 degrees toe in is bad news!

That I do not doubt, its 2 yrs old and hence a lot of options, great options. I have seen some that were fully done up, they cost a lot and its a nice piece of work.

I had the opportunity to watch the X-Ray last week-end, it was already more competitive than the full option micros...with a bad battery, had a lot more corner speed since the 4 wheels was stuck to the ground (carpet)....just need perhaps a stiffer chassis since the stock onehas a lot of lateral flex, the stock diifs are very smooth and the transmission very free...

Did penguin make the custom, no hole or sloted chassis for you?
How much did it cost?
Thanks Andrew

Nevermind, I found out that you paid $160 for two of them.

I use 1.5a to 2a and 7mv/c. (using a duratrax digital paek charger)

Use a fan on it when charging at 2 amps.

I can't believe the component quality on this kit!!!

the fit and finish is amazing! They looked into so many small details, there are flats on the plastic pivot balls where they attach to the parts tree so that if there is a tiny bit of flash it won't interfere with the functionality...

Parts are logically grouped and assembled in bags that correspond with the build steps.

The parts have been removed from parts trees and packaged int he previously mentioned bags and you have to look REALLY close to detect any flash on the loose parts.

Working with the Hudy screwdriver packaged with the kit is a whole different world for me...it makes me actually not detest Phillips head screws!! (well..as much anyway)..MUCH nicer than my Mastercraft drivers from Canadian Tire

The instructions are about the cleanest, highest quality, easiest to read set of instructions I've seen on any kit....

To look at the quality of the parts, the components used...the design, the quality of the packaging and included pieces you'd expect that this thing would cost a LOT more than the HPI....

My only guess is that HPI is making HUGE profits on the Micro RS4 if Xray is able to deliver a product of this quality and complexity at this price.

If this car was launched to introduce hobbyists to their product line for when they're ready to step up and race...it WORKED..at least with me it did...

If I decide to pick up a TC...I'm definitely going to give XRay some STRONG consideration.

Xray's craftmanship is second to none. I have the EVO2 and it was just as easy and enjoyable to build as the M18. Everything just fit perfectly. You won't go wrong picking up another Xray.

X-Ray is ALL about quality. I'm also driving an EVO2. The car is just solid. I haven't installed the electronics in my M18 yet, still painting the body Can't wait!
