xxxkat- Tom is right. I would start with those springs and 30wt oil. I would also recommend that you try 4 hole open piston in the front and 2 in the rear.


Deves- If you go to www.teamxray.com, you should be able to find the part number there.

Bend at teh waist. Always remember to look at the person without appearing to be looking distrustful. It's part to the bow-ritual, yet can be reacted to very defensively.

Good luck and be weary of the cook preparing your blow fish - I look for chef that's sober!

Default Quick Picture!

Hi Guys,

Just a quick picture of the two contenders in the shoot-out review I'm going to be writing in the near future - TRF415 v Xray T1-FK

Cheers, Mark.

Question for Alex Lopez, what springs do you run on your FK in stock on carpet?

i just hope you put new tyres on the FK, or are you biased towards the Tamiya

As baised as they come I was thinking of running the FK without any rubber on the wheels at all I hate gluing tyres and I only have one good set

Is this a foam setup? I'm looking for a good rubber tyre carpet setup. I have a very good setup for the TRF-415 I'm using for my Xray/Tamiya review, but I'm looking for a good starting point for the Xray T1 FK. There are lots of setups out there, but can anyone tell me if there is a really good one?
I don't want to be handicaped in testing the T1 FK

I just put on 28 mm Jaco foams premounted in my xray but they seem too wide. The rear tires hit the eyelits of the shocks when i use the outer hole on the arms and the tires hit the front when i do a full turn left or right. Is there some osort of spacer or something i am supposed do to allow 28 mm premounted jaco tires to fit on my car?

You could try putting a wheel washer or similar on the INSIDE of the wheel as well as the outside. I had to do that with one particular set of wheels/tires, but I don't recall the make.
If your club follows strict rules make sure you check the car width. Easy to adjust if you have pb.

have you tried running the xray red springs, ive tried softer springs (on asphalt and carpet with foam tyres) and the car goes slower, probably due to too much grip, what do you think?
