hey zombies,

ive looked thru there and didnt see where there is a basic c-hub setup avail. I see many racers who have entered theres, most for carpet, but none by the webmaster like the basic pivot ball setup listed on the last page.

TheISGroup :: Racing this weekend? Which track? Both? Your speedo should be in this week. Can't wait till I can get my A-arm from you. LMK if you want to try my Solid Diff.....it's very easy and fast to install.

rccadet,

what differences have you noticed by using the solid diff vs diffs front and rear? how does this effect the handling of the xray?

Solid front diff (spool) gives tons of on power steering, but pushes like a dump truck off power. Your set up and driving will totally change to run a spool..........

If the rear is not tight, less droop, it tends to swing it out. I add weight to the rear of the car and use less droop. I am running Mod so that is why I add weight. In Stock I used the stock config in the front but with 0 droop and in the rear I have the Roll Center mod installed and use 2mm of droop with the shock on the tower at hole two and hole two on the arm.

The car is very twitchy I think but I like its sharp 'eye-blink' response. Entering turns is not a problem. If you touch the brakes when approaching/entering the turn it snaps to attention and drives right in. I have not had a problem with over/understeer yet. Had to tighten the rear diff a bit more.

I now have the Solid Layshaft installed and use the normal diff up front. Not as responsive right now. I hope to get my c-hub a-arm from TheISGroup and will try the solid layshaft and solid diff setup.

RBLove :: I've not experienced the push. I have while now running the PB in the front and c-hub in the rear but was able to tune that out.

I'd be very interested in hearing how the car performs for you rccadet as I too have the solid layshaft with a spool coming. What top plate are you running by the way? I tried the ultra flex this weeked and I liked how it allowed the car to "dive" into the turns.

Oh yeah, Ultra Flex top deck is what I use also. I was using the Flex deck and the car pushed with it, changed to the Ultra Flex and the car is now on rails.

With the PB installed up front, I use hole one on the tower, two on the arm, 1 mm droop, two valve holes in the shock. Normal essentric setting with the upper arm. The rear I use hole two on the tower, hole three on the arm, 3 mm droop, 4 valve holes, and the roll center mod.

Default Two questions please.

Guys,

Can someone please give me a $$$ figure for a new X-Ray Evo with these options-LHS prices please-not full retail.

X-Ray Evo2
Rear roll center bridge
C-hub conversion front and rear.

Next question-is the Raycer a top-line race kit, but with a molded tub chassis-or is it a "Cheaper version" of the kit, lacking lots of the pieces that make the Evo such an awesome ride?

I am thinking a TUb chassis might be better suited for racing on carpet w/ foam tires!!

Thanks,
Ray

Ray...

You can get the new 2003 Evo2 that comes with both Pillow Ball and C-hubs in one box...saw some on ebay selling for $350.00 thats only $30.00 more than a std Evo2 w/PB.

Rear bridge: $18.00 (less on Ebay)
C-hub Conversion kit: $170-180 (less on Ebay)

The Raycer is the sport version "cheaper version"
If you're doing some serious racing..get the EVO2.
