Cheers.
Thats was happening to me but only in modified(I tried it on all tension settings.) I then discovered it was because the teeth on the one way pulley had a nice groove in them on one side(i think a rock or soemthing wen't throught it. Try swapping diffs and see if there is a difference. I did and it never came off with the Novak B/L (very tourqy) even though the belt had a huge kink in it due it's constant flipping

Default Belt flipping

I had the belt flipping over on the front pulley because the belt was too loose.
Because of this the belt became "bent", tightening the belt didn't help and I needed to replace it.

I sure found out the Xray isn't meant to be a RWD car

Default Battery help

Im wanting to run 6 cells on the left side for oval racing, but the battery does not fit in between the balkheads. Any suggestions on what to do? I hate to file the bulk heads down but dont know what else to do.

what car are you running? the Evo 2? And to let you know 6 cells on one side of the chassis will throw your weight off alot. I have never done oval before so i dont know the rules, but you should stick with saddle 3x3.

FACTORY KIT
Has anybody used the long wheel base yet . ie;; did it put more weight over the front wheels to aid steering?

I've seen Ralph Burch do it at the recent ROAR Nats, it puts an extreme angle on the rear universals. Works fine enough to make the A.

I like the mid range set-up [257]; better tracking and power transfer on carpet.

The longer WB worked ok on asphalt track, with medium bite and sweeping turns.

Good luck!

Anyone have pics of a T1-R (or any T1) with all electronics installed? Car is ready to go - just need to mount electronics and run some wires!!

Thanks,

Thanks vassago, kennedy and pyramid! I am going to try going back to the stock setting...if it happens again.

Yeah, you are right about the 2 wheel drive. That was wild! Interestingly, after a few laps I got used to it and I was able to turn a lap within .5 seconds of the fastest lap in 19t...hmm, maybe this 2wd thing will be the "next thing."

Here is a pic of how I wired my old Evo2. I use corally style battery connectors but you could wire it the same as this and just solder the batts like most people do.

Default quick question....

I was thinking of using the outer holes on the servo saver, where the steering linkages go. i realize that the linkages would be a bit shorter and ackerman setting will change too. What are the genaral effects/characteristics with handling by doing this?

Also on the Xray site, i see the they came out with an ackerman option. I cant picture the part installed on the car. Has anyone tried this already? or have any pics? Any info would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

Default Long to short arms conversion

Hi guys,
Other than the arms themselves, what other parts are required for the conversion to short arms. I have a T1R. Thanks a bunch.

I just bought Evo 2 with the BMI chassis and the short arm suspension, first of all let me just say this thing is sWEEEEET, but of course all of you Xray vets already new that, right? Anywho, I've got a situation, can any of you guys either post or email me the instructions that came with the short arm conversion? I only have the original Evo 2 instructions, I kinda stumbled through rebuilding the rear but I'm not sure I put it back exactly right. And I still got the front to go. Can someone please help a fellow racer?
Thanks guys.
