I have to agree with Manticore. There was a long time lag between my C4 and Xray. By the time I got the Xray the C4 had been demoted to "display model" status! I have since even brought it down further to "sold" status!! Maybe someone out there is enjoying it right now!

Darkside. I also felt that the performance of the C4 was seriously hampered by the overweight Serpent arms. Have you noticed how light your car is before you put the A-arms on?! The Xray does not have this problem because the parts are siginifcantly lighter when compared to the C4. I only had the original C4 not the 4.1 so that made things even worse. Just my 2 cents!

the drawback of C4 which really pissed me off is the diff !! it has poorly designed with those o-rings. the small dogbone plastics are pain in the @ss to fit them in place.

A drop of superglue and a 'bucket' of motor cleaner would have sorted out the O ring problem! and two dabs of assoicated black grease would have sorted out your dogbone problems! Its a good thing you run the Xray now, because neither of the problems exisits!!

dtm: Yeah, the arms are thick! But, I gladly exchange the weight for the security of knowing I will never break an arm. The diffs have worked flawlessly for me so far. As long as you don't let the O-rings get any grease on them the diffs work perfectly. I have found a very reliable method of inserting the axle pins, so thats not really an issue either.

One thing that has not suffer though is the handling. If you haven't tried a Corally since the original C4, you might try the newest one sometime if someone at your track has one. Its really a good car.



Its good to see the Xray getting more widely distributed, maybe a couple of people around here will get one. We have a good selection of cars at our local track, but not many T1's.

Default Xray Availablility and Questions

Hey, do any of you guys know of a hobby supplier that has the Xray and plenty of spare parts in stock? If you could list either their website or name, I'd appreciate it.

Also, do any of you guys know if they have made shock towers that space the top shock mount locations farther out? It looks like a nice car but the shock towers appear to have the shocks leaned in too far. Was it the Griffith version of Corally that came out with different shock towers?

WOW!!!

That is a 4.875 FDR and a rollout of 41.22. I would not think of running that high.
