Man I wish I had a local hobby shop that was worth a d*mn... anyway, it's a great kit but can be complicated for a beginner due to all the tuning choices. However, if you stick to the stock setup and make one change at a time you can definately learn the car, go for it!

Hey RcMike, I raced my Evo2 at Mike's new carpet track last saturday. It was a blast! Xray was #2 and #4 in the Mod-A. I love mine! It's a versatile car with all the setup changes you can make to it. I'm pretty sure Mike's carries Xray parts.

How are you guys building your xray shocks? I've been at it for hours now and I'm getting frustrated! I just can't get them the way i want.

If its the oil....

1. Fill them all the way
2. Compress the shaft about 1/2 - 3/4 of the way.
3. Put the little bladder on and squeeze out air bubles. Hold the shock at a 45* angle to do this. Put the lower side of the bladder in first then roll it on towards the upper end (with the shock tilted). This will squeeze out any air that is trapped.
4. Extend the shaft all the way and put the cap on. This will suck the bladder down and it won't pop off.

I also found some translucent bladders that you can see the air bubles under. i think they are yoks or something. Not really sure.

I get no air and the action is very smooth with only a little shaft extension when it is compressed fully.

Well after half a bottle of losi 40, i think i finally got all four to be somewhat equal. Thanks for the tips. (here's what i did differently... i put a four mm and a 1 mm spacer clip on the shaft to make sure each shock was pushed in the same distance. After that and following your advice they were all pretty good... i had to bleed a little out of one of the shocks to equalize the rebounds) I've got oil everywhere so good enough for now!

Default Xray SSG Chassis

Booyah! Just got my Xray back from Xtreme Racing. He was using it to prototype the chassis for the car...works on the T1, EVO2 and T1R




Looks sweet, the upper chassis is a bit stiffer then the factory stiffy, new chassis is stiffer then the factory Evo2(as stiff as the T1 chassis)

Check out Xtreme Racing

I dont work for them, but tell em Eric sent ya and he will hook you up!

I can't wait till I have the chance to throw this piece on carpet!
