yup.. after tinkering with for several minutes...what I thought would work..doesn't..

I think I need those open ball ends to mount on the slot, and drill all the way through the ball on the sway bar to make it work...

I guess it's probably cheaper to get the new front sway bar set.

jayco76: Well said

I am not the best driver, but I do have fun. Coments I get fromt the TC3 drivers are"wish mine was that good" and "Boy this car drives nice!" That is what is said when they drive my T1 vs their TC3. Had one and sold it. Now that the T1R is out, more are looking at the X-Ray and their quality.

Rob is my hero! Looks like I will be heading to Ycity, I was hoping my pipe would get here for the Serpent so I could go down to Joyce, but doesn't look like it is going to make it.

Eddie M. - Track looks nice. Is that the driver stand over on the right? Can you guys see the track well enough with the driver stand that low? Is it limit to low ceilling's?

Unhappy

Yes, that is the driver stand and we can't build a higher driver stand due to the fact that the ceilling is only 9 feet high.

Default 19 turn rollout

Jason-on a 19 turn-Specifically a Putnam Excessive Force C2, I gear them really, really high and they love it!! I gear them higher than a P2K2!!! So I would recommend 1.00 to start in practice and check temps. if its not burning skin-go 1.05. if its still not on fire-go 1.07. Last Sunday at my track i ran 36/96 with 2.30" tires on my Tc3. (Ran Xray in stock class) and after Main thought I could have gonne 38!!!

Boy was I undergeared last Sunday at track. I went in today to do track maintenance and ran a battery pack. Went 5 teeth higher on pinion and motor was just warm at end of 5 minutes of running as hard as I could!!!

Thumbs up

don't listen to ray. he is extremely slow and burns motors every week. nah, actually ray, you're xray was supafast this past sunday. everyone knew where you were on the track, because all we heard was that soft whistle from your monster! a thing of beauty. now i guess we'll be hearing more of that, with the boys having their xrays on the way! time for me to get new bearings in the lab so i can get back that "stealth" sound.

Hey guys I just got back from racing my xray. I ran 3rd and 4th out of 4 cars. I was getting smoked on the straight, because my motor has seen 3 hard race nights on it. Plus this is only the second time I've been to that track and with this car. Yeah I'm making excusses. It makes me feel better.

My question is how can I get the car to transition faster. Over all my handling was great. I already went down to 30 weight oil. Would changing the anit dive and squat to 0 degrees help. Or how about lengthing the camber links.

Ohh and after racing this car the TC3 is a pile or crap. I had to work so hard for the TC3 to work. Modded chassis and the Baker setup all that jazz. But with the xray everything I've tried has worked. Anyone wanna buy a TC3????

try using the rear roll center bridge...

I agree... after running the xray the TC3 is garbage...I quickly sold it along with my fully hopped up Pro3...

Seaball-thanks I think

Car will just get better and better!!! and I did run my Tc3 and my Xray on the same day and I can say they couldnt be more different in charector. I wouldnt say the TC3 is junk!! I thought my TC3 was as dialed as it has ever been-and it is!! but after running the xray-I now know for sure how much easier it is to drive. I cannot do as fast a single lap with the Xray as I can the TC3, but I can run just as fast or faster run than the Tc3 and not work nearly as hard.

IN 19 turn I ran 23 5:08 with TC3 (12.9 fastest lap). In Stock I ran 23 5:12 (13.1 fastest lap) with Xray and Xray was undergeared by 3-teeth on that run.
