I know some of you xray drivers run 1/12th as well. So here's the question. What are your lap times compared to your touring times? I ran .4 to .6 sec slower in 1/12th(4 cell mod) than mod touring at the last race.

I'm a bit curious on how other people do.

Your front belt should fine if it doesn't flip around on its own. Running the belt a little on the loose side is better anyway. If it gets excessively loose, then you might want to tighten up the Bulkhead Adjustment nut. I run mines really loose too.

Jimmy and the boys,

One question and this sounds really Newbie-but I have had the button head screw come loose on my front wheels twice now.Its embarrasing!!!! I am running the stock wheels with the belleville washer on the correct way!!!

Do I need to use Blue Loctite one time??

Thanks,
Ray

I have had them come off once in the alum hubs but never once in the spring steel ones. I used locktite on the alum. Knock on wood, i'll probably have one slip on the spring steel

Hi Ray,

I've had only one occasion running the CS27 which the washers won't fit. So what I did was exactly what you had in mind. I applied only a very small drop of loctite on the end of the wheel screw and once it's dry, it'll tighten up really good. Best if you run the Spring Steel Hex hubs because on the stock ALU, its a little harder to unscrew.

Another way of doing this is go to a hardware store and buy some smaller washers. Another suggestion is apply the wheel screw onto the wheel, then slide an o-ring on the other end of the screw before putting the wheel on, then tighten it a bit harder. The O-ring should help hold the screws tight against the hub. This is one of the gripes with the XRAY. Hope it helps and I'll experiment with it a little more today and see if there's a better solution. Happy Racing.

Jimmy

You're right on that Devin, The Spring Steel seemed to have a better thread and tightens down further then the ALU so it actually slightly squeezes the wheel against the hub. Although a drop of the blue loctite won't hurt. LOL

I'm glad I finally found someone who agreed with that theory...it's been a hard search. Thanks. I got your email and sent you back one.
