When I called serpent the other day, they were still waiting on it. They don't know when the thing will be in.

I love XRay cars but dealing with serpent is a pain! I've had nearly $300 sitting aside to buy a T1M since Thanksgiving. Frankly, I'm losing my patience.

Hello all,

With my new super stiff chassis about to be released for the Xray-I am building up a brand new FOC evo2 w/ all the goodies!!

can some one please post the part numbers for the short front and rear arms to do the conversion?

I was also talking to Dan Miles just a few minutes ago and he said to use a certain servo mount or elsethe short arms could hit the servo mounts. Does anybody have that part number too? or does it come in the FOC evo2 box?


The plan is to have these chassis available at the BIrds during practice. I hear you havent felt traction till youve run at the Snowbirds!!!

Thanks,
Ray

Ray,
Mail me at [email protected] and I'll send you the pics of what I was sent (pics of Josh Cyrul's Cleveland car). I will also have 1 set of the front arms, and 2 sets of the rear that I'll have on Monday.

From the looks of the pics, he was using the EVO2 servo mounts.

Got me...I won't have them till Monday. I assume you set droop the same way. They still use the C-Hubs so you would probably do it the same.

Because of the way the short arms are mounted (outside the bulkhead), I don't think there'll anywhere for the droop screw to contact the chassis, so you may have to set it with shock length. (and that's a real pain in the heinie)

From the pics I have, it appears that the droop can be set from the arms. Here's the pics (Josh Cyrul's car from Cleveland).

droop is set the same way as with the long arms. What I had to do with Alexes oversize KO servo was leave the bottom screw out, and use a T1R arm mount trimmed a little.

The Nats will be 12th scale only, but most other weekends it'll be the X-Ray or both. I'm trying to conserve the SWORDS OF VOLTAGE, and the tire stash for the little car, so the XRay will see a lot of miles this winter/spring.

Cool, I was worried if I decided to run those arms that I'd have to set droop LOSI style. I should've known the fine craftsmen and designers at HUDY would never make me do something so lame.
