If you haven't figured it out yet, one of the new Xray cars is a 1/12 TC mini.

I just use the ones that came with the kit...nothing really wrong with them.... if an anti-seize compound is not placed on ti screws.... it will permenantly bond itself if screw into aluminum.

neil-Spilling the beans-eh??

For whatever its worth-my hybrid Xray with original T1 chassis with C-hub rear end, but PB front end weighed in with body and personal transponder at a svelt 51.1 oz!!! No sway bars, but it did have the aluminum rear hubs. I am pretty happy with that weight as it looks like I'll be adding weight instead of taking weight off for the US Indoor Champs.

I got my T1R with some mods done..... gave it to my neighbor to do the twist test and my EVO2 with Graphite Chassis is more flexible then the T1R. He even Cracked my Rear T1R Shock Tower when he twisted it.

Mods made to the T1R.

Put the Grahite Carpet Front Shock Tower on
Put the Solid Grahite Top Deck on
Rear Bridge
And the most important thing was I used the EVO2 solid Arm supports connecting the Bulkheads together in the rear and front of the Car. Without these the car did flex more then the EVO2 with Graphite Chassis.

I am ready for some carpet munching!!!!

With X-Ray releasing this 1/12th scale touring car to compete with the yokomo I wonder if this catches on if Snowbirds will have a class for it this year. I hope so!!!!!

Default xray evo 2...

i currently run a TC3...

through trading some stuff i might pick up an Xray Evo2. i've read a little about these and have scene the euro guys do really well (jilles g. xray/peak).

just wondering how much different is it from driving a TC3...

is it much harder to set-up...

are spares alot more expensive...


basically i only want to pick it up if it will be worth it.

thanks for any replies.

1. EASIER TO DRIVE (smoother and more consistent)
2. If you have a good working knowledge of chassis dynamics, it's no harder to set-up, but you probably won't have the advantage of having 50 other people at your track running the car to sponge set-ups from.
3. Spares are more expensive, but you'll break less. So it'll probably be less expensive in the long run.

I have run a TC-3 and the X-Ray, and I will say this with confidence, There is currently NO OTHER TC ON THE MARKET, that I would consider running.

C hubs are great for Carpet or Technical small tracks. On longer more flowing outdoor tracks the Piviot ball suspension is the way to go.
