Good Luck
Maybe I'll use the slots for the wider wheel base. That way I'll be able to manipulate the inner wheel.

What do you mean manipulate ? Once you have the wheels in. Theres not much you can do unless you want to change the wheelbase. I do run mine wide track...i put a piece of lexan in between the inner & outer wheel. It prevent traction roll coming out of corners at high speed. Thats why I hope that they come out with a one-piece bolt-on wheel set. Get rid of the inner wheel. Easy to replace, less rolling weight, less warping too.

I paid $10.99 for a racer pack which had 20 female batt connectors and 2 males. I got them from my local hobby shop. I tried them today and I really like them so far.

Methinks I will wait for the Xray kit to come out. That blue is too cool (wait, is the IPD available in different colors? I forgot to look). Looking at the Xray mount, it looks like it has holes for a 180, 280 or 300 motor, which should be just fine. At this rate, I may end up with 2 cars with all the leftover parts (plan on getting the ball diffs, which would leave only the diff covers and bearings as major purchases)

As for the esc, I'll either get that V3r they have at the shop or find a Futaba 230 online for cheap. Since they both fit and deliver more amps to the motor than a mini esc, it just makes a bit more sense. It's just a pain to wire them...

I just ordered it from R/C Mushroom. It's $54 USD and shipping is $18. So I order a few other items to offset the shipping. I should have it by friday or monday. Stormer doesn't know when they'll get it, and I'm actually saving $3 on the total deal.

Has any one used them before? I alway worry about using a internet hobby shop. The local are a sure thing

It's my RISK TAKER attitude.

Does anyone know if there will be a kit that includes the option parts?

I'll be buying one of these in the near future and plan to use a graphite chassis right from the start and wanted to save a bit of cash by not buying the basic kit first with a bunch of parts in it that will be replaced right away.

Just wondering if they'll have a "Team" version or something soon.

underdahill how are i have chatted with you before. even though there is a big demand for these little cars it hasnt got to the point that you can call or write xray and get special packages they are so busy making these cars that they barely have time to make the option parts.
keep an eye on the banners up top for the fast and furious hobby store they have the cars fore 85 bucks thats 15 to 20 dollars cheeper then everyone else if you were to buy the stk chassis by it self it'll cost about 15 or 20 dollars then buy an after market plate and your set. i have driven the car for 3 months againts modified versions it does well under cetain situations , there is no need to go ballistic enjoy the car and mod it little by little. good luck!

Yeah... you've answered some of my goofy questions before. I agree that I should just mod it bit by bit over time.

I was just wondering if there were plans to do an xray "Team" kit in the near future. I'll just snag the stock kit if nothing has changed when I go to buy one.

underda hill i doubt they will make a team kit for this car then again maybe! this is more of a novelty thing at the moment but ofcourse we the r/c racers turn everything into a serious competition.
