Greg: You caught me in a hurry Had someone waiting on me and I did an incomplete type I use -10% exp as I tend to oversteer sometimes. Was at 35% Goal is 0%, Radio is a 3PJS. Use delay on my servo also (S9410) 10% I think, at work. Use dual rate on the steering. What I meat was I has the dualrate is at 15% below full or 85% C-Hub gives you a lot of steering. I have just started noticing the scrub on the steering. I have noticed as you get better you notice more things on the car that change. TidewaterRC track is an oval with the TC doing the infield in addition to the oval. The transistion from the banking to flat and tuning 180 is tough. I also like a car loose, but the rear C-Hub was to lose for me. Like the car was at -2 camber or cold tires and no tire tack. I could drive the car, but I did not like it. To much oversteer. Hate a tight car!!!!!!

Have you tried putting a aluminum screw in the hole to help support the arm? This should stop the arm from colapsing.

Greg, broke mine in the same area. But not the hole, cracked the web 90 degrees to the hole. I need to try the screw and reinforce this area. I think the arm takes a hard hit on the wall

The locked front should work like a one way of sorts. It will have the roll and pull of the one way. with more initial turn in.
I run my diffs at 1 1/4 turn out on foam carpet. Lets car grab well all over the track. I use a dual rate of 55 percent as well with that
I just dont like the steering in my cars so i am not going to the c-hub.
Thanx for the measurements as well guys. just wanted to know because i was doing some geometry of shocks type things with the rear swisscheese tower.

On Trinity Tech Talk, there's a good thread about locked front diffs. Seems like most guys who have tried them say the car pushes more on corner entry, but on corner exit the front end really bites hard, car launches better and has more steering.

That's in XXXS's and TC3's, don't see why the XRay would respond any differently.

IRS is looking at building an aftermarket solid front axle for the XRAY touring car. They already make this part for the TC3 and have looked at it for the Losi. Any interest?
