answer i got was that the m18 was so popluar that they shifted production of the t1m to the m18.

here is the tread from the xray vip room on mytsn on availability:

YANG LAI (US) 12.27.03 at 16:51
I have had a hard time locating parts for my xray. Our Local hobby shop usually has a good supply of xray parts, but in the last month their selves are bare. I talk to the owner and he said that parts are hard to come by. He said that serpent has backorders most of the parts. especially the one that are needed chubs and arms.

BRAD HONE (US) 01.19.04 at 00:33
I have the same problem. I made an order direct from serpent online. My order was confirmed. 2 weeks later I only recived 1/4 my order. I have heard that this is why no one in my area sells anything from Serpent. The only reason why My LHS bought any Xray products Evo, t1 and M18s is because Horizon was going to be a distributor. I check on all backorder parts every day. Horizon has no word on when parts are going to be available. I have two cars to support and even though they are hard to break, they still do. Because of this I had to buy another T1 just for parts. And as far as Serpent USA I will not buy anything from them ever again. What customer service? They could have told me most of my order was on backorder. Thats just my 2c.

ED ENBERG (US) 01.20.04 at 21:35
You guys are right! Some key Xray parts and cars car have been almost impossible to get. There are many reasons for this. None of them change the fact that parts were in short supply especially during December and the first weeks of this month. The USA distribution channels and Xray are committed not to let this kind of problem happen again. Serpent USA did receive a shipment of parts (c-hub ,etc.) last week. Back orders have been shipped and new orders for these parts are being processed. You have our sincere promise to support the racers of Xray cars the way in which you deserve and are entitled.

thanks ed for keeping us updates. But I know that not all back orders are filled. We are not a big shop, and was told that our backorder was not filled with this last shipment, but were promissed to be filled with the next shipment, that is stuck in customs at this point with no date of release.

Eric:

I can feel your frustration It suck and I haven't seen anything like it (well a couple but nothing like the problem your having) I have yet to find a solution for it. Ill talk (try to) to Mr Hudy about it when the come for the birds. I know it's a long time to wait but thats the best I can do right now. I hope that they can come up with an answer.

On the weight loss front I know what you mean after HS I just balooned. I have to do it more for my health than anything else. I can't eaven get insurance becasue in overweight (individual coverage)

Talking push

Alex that was a fast reply, I guess that
why you are fast on the track, my setup
was voilet front spring and lite blue rear,
30wt oil all around, camber 2deg all around, my droop front was 3deg and
rear 4deg, p/o tire front and mengenta rear, car height 4.5mm, I had the stiff up
top plate and everthing else was stock.

I broke my only set of 6 degree hubs, so I put the 3 on instead and left the dive at 0. I changed the front spring to the dark blue. The car is very good, but running mod so I would like more on power steering mid to exit. The rear end could be a touch better. I was thinking about moving the front links up a hole or moving the rear link. Or possibly going to 6 degrees by adding 3 dive.

Please let me know what you think. I just want to try something small since the car is so close already. Thanks.
Scrad,
I've done a similar thing when I was out of the 6* hubs. I ran 3* hubs and 3* kickup. There was VERY little difference that I could feel between the two. I felt the 6*hubs alone had a bit more steering. Now that I'm stocked on parts, I'm back to the 6* hubs.

I say try Violets all the way around, and reduce your camber in the rear to 1.5* and see how that works that should improve your steering.

Also Eric, I am going to try and do bump stop for the steering too. Dont know if I'll have it done by tnight though. I checked my servo saver spring and mine is brand new. Its definately not as strong as on other cars.

I hope I dont break anyparts tonight too. I only have a couple of spares for the arms and c-hubs right now.

Heres a pic from bottom. NO cutouts and 3mm Carbon = super-duper stiff car!!

Ooops-forgot the pic.

pucho or Alex-did you guys run the Xray with 7mm of shims in front of rear arms at Cleveland? If yes-thats almost exactly the same as the wheelbase on the Tc3.

I also used antisieze compound on every screw going into aluminum. I remember all the seized screws from the last time I owned one of these cars. Their was a lot of discussion about this before. Was there any issues stemming from using anti-seize (copper based). Just curious.

That looks awesome Ray. Hurry up and get the black ones in. One thing, is the geometry on those EXACTLY the same as the stock chassis? I know the BMI chassis moved the batts forward a bit.

Tim-Call me-I should be callng YOU about set-ups. I really cannot race this at big events though-only the Demon1 and 2. But I LOVE Xray's for the most part. The CVD issue, siezing screws and breaking c-ubs left and right and most important-poor parts supply from Serpent i could do without though.

Blake-I hear ya!!! Brig on the black chassis!! Ths car turned out exceptionally nice-thanks. I had mucho FUN doing the chassis and battery slots.

ON the chassis-its 100% the same as the T1 layout, but with all the drill holes of an Evo2 for placement of servo-etc.

Ray,
Thanks for the info. I'll be out at the Gate next weekend to race. See ya then.

As far as breaking c-hubs, I had HUGE problems with this the first few weeks. I bought Jr Norton's old EVO2 and it had a Buds TC3 bumper installed up front. Since then, I haven't broken a single C-hub.

Blake
