Selling, and it is in the sell/trade forum. There's just so much activity on that forum that it gets pushed to the second or third page within a day. Thought that since many Xray enthusiasts visit this thread it would be useful to post an additional link. You never know... Ebay is my next move.

Thanks,
Dennis

That is what is I heard. The upper front brace and the upper brace is composite. I heard the C-Hub will also be composite. Not sure about the tub.

guys think about it. this is a very preproduction prototype. what better way to keep cost down than to make the parts fron a cheaper material. as i'm sure the production units will come in two flavors to meet the marketing needs of the company. a sport more economical maybe RTR model and for us racers a top of the line graphite everything serous race car. or it could just be a micro car. the car that goes across the screen at the end of that movie short looks very small anyway dont get your shorts in a knot just yet cause right now everything is just speculation

You can use any of the industry standard wheels for touring cars. 24mm wheels with 12mm hubs.

Hopefully my Evo2 will arrive today.

What do you guys recommend for battery configuration..
saddle packs or side x side...

how does the car handle with the 2 different battery set-ups?

Try the stock setup first (saddle packs). You will find that to be the best at neutral handling. I have run six cells on the left side, which is fine but the car will be heavy on that side, meaning that it will turn better one way than the other. I have even tried saddle packs with left side forward. That will give more steering, but I had a problem with too much weight transfer to the front causing the rear to break traction. With the stock setup, that will be a great starting point and just adjust accordingly to your driving style and track size. Good luck.

Default Wheels Screws Included

Yes the kit include the wheel screws which I believe are 4x8 button heads. The diff screw is not included the steel screw is better for this application - but if desired I can look into it - do you know the size of the screw??

Thanks
