T1R chassis / solid layshaft w-LR pullies / T1 bulkheads / composite c-hub kit / Lowered front foam tower / multi tune rear shock tower...I switched to the "tub" chassis due to damaging impacts to the servo on the T1 chassis...I have also noticed the composite chassis to be a bit more responsive to steering inputs...

Hi Guys,

Where do you shop for X-Ray parts ?
I live in France and need a good shop that can deal with international and of course which has good stock, good price and above all which is very serious.

Thank you for your input,

If you are after a good solid car to learn with PM me or come see me at the hill one night, i have a std T1R i run in v8 540, and have won or come second at every meet it has been run. For sale if your interested. Have not decided on a price, make an offer

If you want a rock solid car, then the XRay T1 Evo2 is bar none the most durable car on the market. I have abused my Evo2 to hell and back, two weeks ago at the FSEARA state race a turnmarshall actually stepped and fell onto my car, the ONLY damage suffered was a slightly cracked shock tower and one of the rear body mounts was bent, that's it! The chassis wasn't tweaked or anything, if this was a TC3 or another similar car, the whole rear end would have shattered or something, lol.

I agree, the xray is a very durable car. I had one incident where I tapped (or I mean full speed colided) with a PVC coupling coming off a straight with my front right wheel and it busted both the upper and lower arms plus the supports into the bulkhead on the front right. I couldn't believe it, but I was going full speed. I don't think that will happen now with the RBlove bumper...that bumper is trick and really protects the front end.

Accord, I have to agree with you. I had a turn marshal jump on the back of my car and all the happened was he snapped both rear body mounts and trashed the body. The last state race I broke the first part on my car. All that I broke was the right front "c" hub carrier. I can't say enough about the xray. I don't think I will get any other car .. well maybe the new xray when it comes out.

Caddzilla, I see you live in Lake Worth, I live in Boca Raton. Where do you race at locally? I race every week at MDI in West Palm Beach. Also, were you at the last FSEARA state race at TQ hobbies?

Accord .. yes I was at the last state race at TQ hobbies. I was in the MDI tent with all the other guys from down here. I was the guy with the flourescent orange car. I go to the carpet track from time to time but with my schedule I don't get much time to race. I do plan on racing the next trophy race and the next state race at MDI Racing's carpet track later on this month.
