I agree completely!! There was a big smile one my face when I realised I didn't have to build the diff I also liked the fact that there is a bag containing all parts for each chapter in the instruction manual. No searching about for parts in obscure bags

Have you driven yours yet?

I am contemplating buying a Xray Factory Team, but i was wondering what parts of the car would be able to be anodised, as i noticed some of it was duraluminium?

Also i noticed that the driveshafts are steel, can you get any aftermarket aluminium versions?

thanks very much in advance
Duraluminium is a Hudy invetion that is very durable and has small weight.
Driveshats are aslo duraluminum!

I'm also interested on anodizing my FK. Do you know who will do it and in what cost?

Those who have the T1FK: which option parts did you find necessary to buy? e.g. anti-roll bars, weights, etc.

With the exception of different springs/oil, which option parts did you all find necessary to tune the car for a circuit?

I'd like to make sure I have the necessary parts before hiting the circuit.

Also if there are any particular parts which you find you often break.

Cheers, Mark.

I'm always a little afraid of using alu, as it can bend quite easily But the Roll Centre thingy would be usefuly, I think

Default shims/washers?

Stormer is cheaper than horizon and he carries almost everything from xray range!

Do you where can I get anodized aluminum shims/washers/spacers to replace those plastic ones http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/pro...kategoria=360?

Thank you

Nick

Yeahhh... I think that Bro has lost something precious

On the alu Caster, as Jilles suggested, it will gives more stable cornering speed and more neutral steering feel. I guess the plastic one tend to flex?

Moreover, with the alu caster, you will gain more (noticable) steering throw (more radius) but he also mentioned that more radius will slow down the car more... Well, I guess more radius is better since we could always make it less by using TX EPA.

Which Jilles? Lord Jilles?

Sounds reasonable what is being said there, just that I run on a very small tight circuit with pleanty of opportunity to hit the boards I think I'll stick to the plastic parts first of all and see how robust they are.

Cheers, Mark.

My next one is the Tamiya 415 - I'm doing a head-to-head test with it and the Xray T1FK to see which is the best for me. The loser gets sold......maybe
