Is there a huge difference between the FK chassis and the carpet chassis they came out with?

Even when I ran the Yokomo car I would run double upper decks and custom chassis stiffeners for the lowest bite tracks, I have always liked a ridgid chassis, so I'll propably go with the 3.5mm chassis right off the bat as well.

BTW, how's the motor business coming along, havent talked to ya in a while.

I replace the plastic caps every other race day. Andrew S. changes them every run.

Randy,

Not really, the took out all the battery slots and all the holes the that factory drivers didnt use, instead of the stk fk chassis(i think its 2.5mm CF not sure tho) this is 3.5 and very rigided...i think 3.5mm of cf is pushing just that the fact that its a little on the heavy side but it works, i got my bmi chassis and i think id rather own that aftermark chassis then X-RAYS new 3.5mmcf chassis they just relased.

just my .02 lazyboy

If I were Andrew I'd be changing them every run too, but since I gotta buy em still, maybe once every raceday will have to work

Hi Guys,

Spoke with Ralph (RC America) yesterday and it seems like they'll be receiving their shipment soon and can be shipping them out to us as early as end of next week (which means we'll have some early the week after) for those of you that pre-order the FT kit, you'll receive an email from us, so be on the look out for it

There are still room available on the first shipment of FT kits we'll be receiving from RC America, so if you've been thinking about one, now is the time to get that pre-order in The price might also drop once we get the shipment in and check out the new price from RC America.

Steve Wang

It's like having 1 tuner.. Xray. And the new chassis (no, its not specially made for carpet) has the battery slots position moved further front by about 5mm for better balance

Pyramid,

YES, I know! I have read all pages, but there was different info posted on other boards and I guess my actual questions is "what really is the advantage or benefits of the XRA305215(smaller ones) over the XRA305315 or vice versa?"

Besides, the forum needed a Bump anyway.

Mike

the difference between them is that, the smaller ones are for pivotball suspension (but you need the smaller pivotball steering blocks) the 22mm are for the c-hub and steering block conversion. I use the 22mm for my xray in the front there is no need in the back since they dont get grooved.
