that "Andy Moore" writing on the graphite, is it just a decal?

I've seen some graphite with weird writing (like the one in the pic) before and it was decal.

Definitely the low ratio pulley set, it does free up the transmission quite a bit.

As for the others, it depends on the track you are running on (one-way/spool) and how your car is handling.

Hey Xray owners, check out these pics of the modifications done by Eric Chambers. This was done to stiffen up the flexible plastic C-hubs and also to keep them from breaking.

i didnt think of that

if someone has a mini xray try the lower wishbones on your evo2/t1r and see if you get the same width

this seems to be what has given the factory xray boys all this extra speed recently

Try tapping the hole and only making the ball snug, not tight.

Interesting mod...how do you think it will work with the alum c-hub kits? The arms are still composit, so flex I guess the same. Anyone have a parts list of what he used for this mod? Does this take away from the rigidity from the top deck?

Yeah-Eric was saying that the front arms were still too flexible and they need hard FRONT arms. Actually most of Erics Xray parts came from me!! He is running all of my old Xray stuff and that was a LOT!!!

I dont know the answers to these other questions. Eric is VERY smart-and a very good driver to boot. I'll see if I can get him on here to answer your Q's about his mods!!

John..

I know the plastic C-hubs tend to break alot.
when I had my EVO2 with the Alum C-hubs.. never had any problems with anything breaking even with the composite arms...
if you want to lessen the flex...get the optional med or hard from arms... Dan might have some left...he can hook you up with them.

I ran this mod on my other cars...especiall the Pro3... even though it is stiffer... the forces that come into play will transfer elsewhere...other parts of the chassis will break.

I did this mod on my Pro 3 as well. Help stiffen up the front as well. I run the med arms on my xray along with the alum c-hub up front. I haven't seen any problem of performance but maybe this mod will help the car perform better as well?

I've only recently start having problems with breaking the C hubs. It always breaks on the bottom where the spindle sits and its always been the front right hub. I've bent 2 dog bones lately and 3 hubs in the last 2 race days, so I'd also like to know how this mod works. I can't justify spending $50 bucks on aluminum hubs. I'd be afraid they would bend also. I don't have a problem spending 4 bucks, but that adds up too.
