Has anybody sheared the threads off of a shock shaft? I had this hapen this past weekend.
Another racer who drives an X-Ray told me that there were updated shafts and pistons available, which keyed together better, and were less likely to strip out. Does anybody have part numbers for these and for the aluminum shock bodies.
Also, is there a better shock seal(o-ring) cap available? The plastic one seems loose on the plastic bodies.
The comment keeps getting made to phone Buster and see if he has parts in stock... Buster... Do you run a hobby shop? If so, where are you? Do you ship to Canada?

New shock shafts are #30 8034 set of 4 with adjustable and non-adjustable pistons.

If you are breaking the shafts at the bottom threads then these won't help you! I have broken two before!! You can get Serpent shaft replacements if you cannot get hold of Xray....they are the same!

Anyone using the new HP belts? Just got them, but I haven't been able to try them because it just snowed 6 inches here. It seems to have freed up the drive train a little.

Hey Joe,
Yes the HP belts are a must! HOWEVER you CAN just grind down the stock belts. The HP belts are hand ground at the factory from stock belts. We install stock belts onto a chassis, and spin a motor up with about 2-3 volts, then we just shave down the belts until they reach the desired thickness.

I ran on carpet for the first time yesterday at KinetixRC. I witnessed the Mr. Hyde character in the car. The T1 was hooked and the burst out of the turns was incredible.

As for the Mod setup, I tried it with rubber tires and spun the sauce off. Never could control it so I ran stock only. I will use foam tires next time.

I ended up changing to 64 pitch 120/30 and the performance level jumped again.

I saw Ron take a few hot laps and he is dialed!

I am hooked on Ozite!

Hi guys.

Does any of you have Xray T1 and XXXS ?

Does Xray go faster? Easier to setup, race?

Every time I looked at the ad of Xray T1, it looks so cool with graphite and aluminum parts.

Does belt have any problem like dirt stuck in or slipping in acceleration?

Is it easy to get spare parts and hop ups?

Sorry for the stupid questions.

I'm thinking about buying belt driven car but I can't choose.

Well, so far I've only run my X-Ray on carpet, so there hasn't been much of an issue with dirt/rocks in the belts...But the chassis is open in these areas, so I don't think rocks could stay in there to cause any damage.
In comparison to the XXX-S, the X-Ray is much lighter than a stock XXX-S. If you bought the graphite package for the Losi, maybe it would be closer. This past weekend, I was racing against a XXX-S and we were very closely matched for laps and speed.
That's about all I can say...

I own and have driven both. On carpet with foam tires the XXXS wins. The T1 just doesn't have it in the turns. The car seems to hesitate too much unlike the XXXS which rotates much faster through a turn. I haven't raced my T1 on carpet with rubber tires but from what I've seen it looks very promising. In stock class the Xray seems to be at a disadvantage. In mod it seems to do a little better but it is still off the pace of the TC3 and XXXS.

If your just starting out then go with the T1, you won't be disappointed. In stock, when I was driving the T1 against several sponsored guys running Losi's and I was about .5 sec off of the pace per lap; and that was on a 16 sec/lap track. It may not seem much but that put me down almost a lap down from TQ. Another thing to consider if your starting out is that the T1 is built like a tank. You don't have to worry about it breaking. And the kit is very easy to put togther. Virtually no slop and no binding unlike the TC3 or XXXS.

Cool

Does the T1 need any hop-ups out of the box? I will be running stock rubber class.

Baudler, you'll need the front and rear sway bar kits (.5 and 1.0mm rear sway bars to start) the front roll center kit, the rear roll center kit, the front one way and the front shock spring clips (to allow usage of rear shock springs on the front).

It could use the HP belts too, but I don't think that'll be neccessary at TCHR.

I got my car from Dave with Associated Gold springs on it. The car is frickin MINT!!! Track me down for setups for it. It is AMAZING how well it handles!
