To all that are waiting or thinking of getting a T1M.I just now realized that this kit does not come with what I call a bible.What Xray calls a set up book.It tells you basic set up and internal gear ratio.The T1M instrution book does not tell you what your internal gear ratio is.I have searched hi and low for this info in all the bookletts that was in the kit.But to info.Good thing that I own a T1R to gather this info from.

thinking about getting one. they seem very cool.
what im worried about is getting bodies, setups and finding a place that sells the buggers. my LHS doesnt, and the place i usually buy my stuff online from doesnt have them either. Horizon seems very overpriced (i could be wrong). where did everyone here get theirs?

oh, BuMp! btw

I ran my T1M for the first time this weekend. I first tried it with a 19t Ultrabird handout.... Was plenty fast, but since I had my hands on a 8x2 D5.. I had to try it.. Car was fast and stable.... ran for ever. Ran the stock setup with a Yok/Xray Stratus on CS 27 premounts. Very easy to drive with the stock setup.


This car is a friggen blast !!!!!

Very easy on tires, and very, very durable with those super short arms.

Does anyone know What bodies fit this car ?, ones that we can buy readily ?

It would have been nice to have a small setup book with the car, I could not find the ratio.... and just took a shot on the gearing...

I think the gearing would be the same as the T1 (2.125). They use the same bulkheads and diff gears, but have have shorter arms, right?

My T1M arrived last week after a six week wait but now it's been on the track it was worth the wait.

Using a 12 x 2 motor and have geared on 27/93 with the low ratio pulley set installed ( 1.77 )

Kit set up except for 40wt oil and only 2 rear toe in.
Take off CS22GL pre mounted tyres.

Car is a blast to drive and is very light on electrics - Nothing comming off to hot and the com hardly gets marked.

Default Try it, you'll like it

If you are on the fence, sup, just get the kit.

I am not a racer, but I would were there a closer track.

That said, I really like my T1M. Smooth. Tough as nails. I've cartwheeled it, rolled it a bunch of times, and it did not lose its setup whatsoever, let alone damage anything (cracked one shock ball link a bit, but only a wee bit).

I have only tried my T1M with 4 cells and with 7 cells. Motor/ESC is a Novak SS 5800 BL (had to grind the chassis to get it to fit -- against the recommendation of xray staff). With 4 cells the T1M is pretty classy. With 7, it is of course nuts -- a fast, very dense brick.

The T1M is plain a lot of fun. Get one, if you are remotely interested and have the budget. Very well engineered car. Looks kind of out of proportion with the 1/10 wheels, but hey, if they didn't do that the product would be a non-starter.

My next car will very likely be a regular T1, since I can share so many parts from the T1M and the T1 is a more common scale. I have yet to install/try the front one-way, the low-ratio pulley set, etc. I am learning as I go.

Finding the 165mm bodies for the T1M is a complete, utter hassle, though, unless you want the stratus. I asked one other mfr, and they said they had no plans to do anything.

It seems like xray has sold like next to none of these anywhere -- seems that way anyway.

Unhappy T1M Grip roll

Hi everyone

I raced my T1m last night for the first time, It surprised me on speed I am running 4x 3300s and a fantom v2 8x2 turn with 93 - 21 gearing, it was ballistic but on corners i was going for a record on barrel rolls.

I have white springs all round, 5mm ground clearence, cs22 then lp24 all with too much grip. Standard out of the box setup.
Can anyone help?

Regards
