I balance my chasis with out the battery. I figured that the batteries, 2000 or 2400, vary in weight a bit so I did not factor it in.

Manitcore: But without the motor opposite the battery, wouldn't it take quite a bit of weight to offset the battery? That would also make the car quite heavy wouldn't it?

O'well I guess Xray has accounted for all of this already, I don't see how though. I still like the usual battery layout for the T1 and Corally C4.1.

Maybe Xray are thinking about breaking into the "Oval" market!

Is it just me or does the 24 tooth pinion they supply in the kit very under geared? I pretty much find useless with the 90 tooth spur that came with the kit. I ended gearing it 31/90 with a 11x2 just to keep up. What's everone else geared at?

Woo.... 90/31 for a 11x2, thats a total gearing of 6.169 you must run on a very large track or have a very "hot" motor at the end of the pack. I run 125/35 total 7.589 with an 11x2 on a tight technical track. At 125/36 my brushes will start to discolour!

I wonder if you can stack 10 of them together and make an antenna!

Have you seen these in Mong Kok yet Manticore?

Is there anymore X-Ray T1 Kits with Hudy-set Up combo out there?
I am assuming, the above quote that the T1 kit came with the Hudy set.

There's a T1 kit at my lhs has one with the Hudy-set up, They only have one in the store. It's in Daly City Ca.


Damo: I'm intrested in the wrenches only, let me know how much you want them for it, if over 40 don't bother, i could get it for 50 from a friend.

RCCadet - How does the T1 handle compared to your TC3. I am about to buy a touring car and trying to choose between the T1 and the Losi.

I have found a T1 with the Hudy set up tools. Can someone please tell me what tools come with the set up?

Thanks
