I'm having trouble mounting my saddle packs to my T1... how do you guys build yours to fit? Actually I might want to go with the evo 2 chassis and try stick packs with the car. What do you guys think about that?

i threw all me deans connectors out and converted all me packs to Corrally connectors this eliminates all bar 1 wire , if you take about 2 inch of 12 gauge , noodle wire and solder the packs together with the wire this allows plenty of clearance from the belts including mounting batteries into your car and allows easy storage in your battery boxes
sorry i dont have a pic of mine but i am sure lots of other Xray owners know what i am talking about and may have a pic
to post for you

As war11x says, just solder a short wire between the cells. I wouldn't go with a straight pack. One of the reasons the XRay is so good is weight distruibution, and using the inline packs will mess it up.

Try working a bit more with the saddle packs, and throw the deans out, well at least for the batteries.

I think I finally got it to work. What I was trying to do was get the packs so they could be straightend for use on an equalizer...

Man, i just took apart my front diff... feels like the diff balls are square! Talk about rough. I think it's time for some carbide.

*update* just bought 24 carbide diff balls from Acer. Man they have great prices!

Just wanted to give my boy Alex Lopez a little shout out. His car is money. I will ask him to get on here after the US Indoor Champs and post his set up. It is very good..........

X-Ray has some really cool things in store.

Good luck Alex..

Well I tore apart both my diffs... turns out the roughness was due to a bad thrust bearing. That's all I can think off as I swaped so many parts to trouble shoot. I'm going to replace the front diff with a one way though i'm confused. What's the difference between these two parts???

Alu Solid Axle Hard Coated - Set (About $20)
http://www.teamxray.com/xshop/show.p...deda99f57588a6

One-Way Differential PRO - Set (About $50)
http://www.teamxray.com/xshop/show.p...e46a0942138ad6

To me they're exactly the same except the more expensive one looks nicer. Which one should I get???

The one way should free spin when you let off the trigger, the solid axle is just that, a solid axle with no diff action.

oneway gives the car alot more turn-in, solid axle is like a oneway out of corners but you get a little less turn-in but you can use the brakes without spinning out.

I imagine it's easier to dial out turn in than it is to get it without a one way... Maybe I should pony up for the one way.

I just got my new xray shocks... I'm finding that the original length for the front shocks (67mm) is too short for these new shocks. The lowest I can go is about 70mm. I have the original T1... do I need to get the evo 2 shock towers or will I be ok?
