I am not sponsered...nor is he.

Back about a 1 1/2 years there was a local guy here named Buster. Buster sold a lot of parts for X-Ray and helped them out. He got a lot of Prototype stuff and let local racers test it out. The guy I bought the car from was one of the guys that Buster gave a lot of stuff to for testing. I think Buster had the C-Hub stuff about 3 months before anyone knew that it was in the works. He and another guy did a lot of testing for XRay and gave them a lot of ideas and prototype parts.

The guy I bought the car from also did a lot of testing of different parts that he came up with or saw prototype parts and made them...like the rear arm mount and then redrilled the arms to see how it worked. I bought a T1 from Buster right when he was testing out the C-Hub stuff but he got out of the hobby right when the Composite stuff came out.

I would love to be sponsered by XRay if they have any openeings. . I thought I had a good thing going last year at the Snowbirds but they never got back to me.

If any of you guys are looking for parts for the Pivot Ball Suspension I have a Pivot Lot on ebay right now....

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ADME:B:LC:US:1

There are some extra things mixed in but basically you are saving 56% buying this lot. I also think you will never need to buy Pivot Ball parts again There is a lot of stuff

They are the Old Serpent Shocks Springs...

2 of the Axles are used but not bent. I had about 15 Axles and went through them and got rid of the bent ones that were noticeable...1 of the used ones have a wobble but one of my new axles I bought for my car had the same wobble and it was brand new so I figured that since it was hardly noticeable I would not scrap it.

to do the rear toe-in on the T1R you have to put spacers on the front arm holder. 1, 2, 3 mm spacers will give your toe in. These spacers go right behind the motor.
