I agree with 429racer. I ran pucho's setup for Alex Lopez's car two weekends ago and it felt great.

For you guys running Carpet/Foams at Snowbirds-you should look into getting a super stiff chassis and upperdeck for the car. It will pay off bigtime in highbite situations like the Bird and Nats and Champs. It will make the car carry more corner speed and will also help you find that dialed set-up. INstead of trying to equate chassis flex into your set-up.


Check this custom baby I had made for a local buddy of minewho runs Xray in Modified on carpet/foam tires.

Its a 3mm chassis and 3mm topdeck cut-out of super stiff Ice Blue Carbon Fiber. It has the minimum cutouts in it-it can to keep it stiff. Its way stiffer than even the original t1 chassis.

Nice work Rayhuang. Looks very professional. Just curious, how much would you charge to make a single peice upperdeck? Just regular graphite as I dont need the bling bling blue...

I am new to Xray. I got the setup from Pucho. What is considered the "standard hole" for the camber link on the front and rear?

I think thats the only question I have...

Thanks in advance...

I did look at those. I just didnt know if mounting it to the bulkhead was considered standard.

Can someone verify this?

Thanks

Victor from Warpspeed cut it out for him, you could contact him about it. Alexe's dad tryed one and it was so prety that everione wanted to buy it.

When I say standard holes I refer to those holes used in the standard set up, middle hole on tower fro the fromt and hole on bulhead for the rear.

Just wondering, what Xray going to do in year '04 for T1? Are they coming out with new spec.? Or is it possible, the Evo3?
Not mayor changes, just some changes to the arms (short) and the bulkheads (more options for rollcenter, anti dive, and anti squat.) everithing else is the same.

Bobby: I hope to se you and your dad down here for the birds and you guys can come get practice at our ne track.

Anyone know if the Losi thrust set that has the enclosure like the X-Ray will work with the EVO2?

It's been floating around that Xray might have a shaft car in the works. My sources are good and usually correct. Don't be surprised!!
