i've had just about every car out their except the photon, which im waiting on now, cant wait to try it out, but at the current time i feel the xray 009 and corally phi were the two best cars on the market hands down. they both have new cars which it seems most people like the privous model better. having two cars as good as those two i would have just made small changes because how can you really optimise a car for lipo unless you throw out a car like a losi. hopefully xray and corally can figure out something.

Those who also have the car please take a look and let me know what you think because I'd like some other opinions before I order two more mounts.
You've probably saved Xray a gazillion of dollars. They should really thank you. Expect suspension mounts to ship out soon.

Just had a look at putting the front suspension mount on the rear .Looks okay, if need be you could give it abit more clearance with a dremel.Also you could go to 34t pullies and belts and it would be sweet as.

The problem in the back is the large spur not the diff or belt (judging by the manual pictures). The mount however should clear it comfortably.

I just had a look at the back, should be ok as I think there would be enough clearance with the provided spur gear.

So there is a pretty large gap there to be able to use for 17.5 and 13.5 with the standard motor. That might be pushing the correct rollout for 17.5 on larger tracks with foam tires.

Exactly what I wanted to know.

Does anybody have a trick on getting the roll center holder into the ball cup? The kit went together very smooth until this part.

I used a big pair of channel locks but wrapped a tripled over rag around the ends first to keep from scratching or scaring up the ball or holder. That is a PITA to get those things in there! But they do not ever wear out...thats the good part about em!

Do we have to use the unidirectional ones?

Yes. I believe the holes in them for the ball is a different size.

Just looked them up and they are 5mm just like the other ones. The only difference seems to be the unidirectional part which i cant see why we need to use those.

The side with the Dot is smaller to prevents the ball from popping out in a hard crash. If you can't get it in, just use the non unidirectional ones.

If you still want to try to get the unidirectional one working

1. Take piece of wood.
2. Make small hole in wood for the nipple (nipple is on the side where you screw into)
3. Place wood on ground
4. Place roll center nipple in hole
5. Place Tape on hammer end
6. Place hole over ball end of roll center
7. Hit with hammer =)
