So it's basically not worth it to wait.

Way to go Xray.

Josh, the last word is that there are some on this current shipment (might be at RC America already), but there weren't going to be enough to fill all the back orders.

However, another shipment has already left Slovakia last week that should be enough to fill all the back orders and then some. The good news is that they aren't coming by boat, they are coming by air but they still take a few weeks to get through customs and all that BS. They're expecting mi-late December at the earliest and mid January at the latest, but I doubt it will be that long. They should be caught up in the next 2 shipments so don't get discouraged yet. I ran my T1FK two SAturdays ago for the first time and it was soooooo sweet. The only thing I did other than stock is the aluminum rear uprights. I have a BMI chassis waiting to go on it for a higher bite track.

Jason, thanks for the info. Do you know if Horizon will be carrying the kits still, or will they be discontinuing their xray stock with xray's new distribution system?

I'm pretty sure Horizon is out of the Xray business...lol. They were charging way too much for the parts. But since RC America is selling to individual hobby shops it would be silly to buy from another distributor unless you just couldn't afford the buy-in.

The battery store I work at on my days off (from the fire station) got an account with Xray so I can get parts for myself and some of our club members at a good discount. I would probably sell stuff on the internet but I don't have the time to do it.

Hmmm...alright, thanks for the info. Horizon works out to be cheaper for me, so that's a bummer.

Thanks again,
Josh

Default Motor Cooling Fan

Have any of you installed a motor cooling fan in your factory kit? How have you mounted the fan? If anyone has any pictures please post. Thanks

Trinity has a new fan that screws to the motor. The fan kit comes with 2 heatsink type mounts that screw into the endbell where the brush shunts screws are than the ends are tapped so the fan mounts onto them. Really cool deal 5v fan and aprox 1x1. There $10

Hi guys, im going to be ordering an xrc chassis etc tonight and while im at it i might aswell order some other bits and bobs.

Thing is, for ages ive been trying to get my shocks to stop leaking, but with new seals, new bladders and new bodies even i havent been able to get them stop leaking.

So i was considering the tamiya shocks but i have a few questions.

1) are they a direct fit? any mods needed?
2)will xray springs fit? ive got a whole spring kit + more which would go to waste if they dont fit
3) finally what are your views on these shocks? are they really as good as people say?

if their not the best around then what shocks are?

I've used the Tamiya shocks in the past and they're nice and smooth. I saw an XRay with the aluminum shock bodies this weekend and the aluminum shocks are much, much smoother than the plastic ones. You might give the XRay aluminum bodies a try - that way, you'll definitely be able to use your XRay springs.

yeah i was considering them but how will they help them to stop leaking?

i think the way xray have designed their way of sealing shocks is fairly poor..i mean one o ring at the bottom and the bladder helps leaking problems at the top a bit.

but look at pro4 shocks, they have a series of orings and washers..they are awesome shocks.

ive never been a big fan of xray shocks, ever since my first xray.

im pretty sure im gonna get the tamiya shocks but i just need to make sure that xray springs fit them..do they?
