Default XRay?

I know Xray just came out with the Fk kit, are they going to make another kit coming out before 2005 or during 05?

Why did you asked? T1FK is not capable to enhancing your satisfaction?

I think what you will see is running changes. Then if the team guys make significant mods, then maybe another evolution.

Hi Guys,

Just received my T1FK yesterday and started puting it together - wow, it doesn't take much time It is going together really well; everything fits nicely without slop and very little binding.

I was surprised that there were no anti-roll bars in the kit - now I'm running rubber tyres on a small indoor track, do you guys find that the anti-roll bars simply aren't necessary?

Any suggestions on which is the best servo saver to use?

Cheers, Mark.

For $300 dollars they should at least give you a front roll bar. Also a dummy transponder would be a nice touch.

I added the front roll bar because with the front one-way installed the car turns so good that the rear end sometimes wants to come around. The front roll bar helps improve rear traction.

This and traction rolling was my concern.

I saw some pictures of Xrays with non-standard servo savers and was wondering if a third-party servo saver was the choice of most guys.

Default Camber question

I run Nitro with foam tyres a lot more than electro with rubber. To set the camber on my nitro, I make sure that the front tyres wear flat and for the rears that they are slightly coned (i.e. worn more on the inside).

For rubber tyres should I take a similar approach? i.e. the wear on the fronts should be even across the width and for the rears, the insides should show a little bit more wear than the outsides?

Cheers, Mark.

mark i base my camber on tire wear. read the tires carefully to know the proper camber. for me i set it that both front and rear tires have the wear at the center.

Rule of thumb is to have the wear even in the center.. that`s would largely depend on kind of inserts we are using.

Use the one from S710 steering is good enough..

Hi Pyramid, you always seem to visit the same forums as me You aren't my long lost twin brother are you?

Do you mean the S710's servo save is a better choice that the Xray one?

[email protected] trying to cut down the habbit for online too much

Anyway, as for my current use of S9550 servo, also that I mounted the servo stay (that aluminum things) not in the most forwad position (closer to center of car) due to that the suspension holder (all plastic only, step 4 front transmission) on that side need 5mm spacer in order to line up the same with the other side, I need horn that will make my servo linkage towards more to the center of the car. The original Xray will make it closer to the servo while the one from S710 will make it farther (closer to belt) and still need +0.75mm spacer to have the linkage straight.

Did you get what I mean?
