nitro, give Buster a call, I'm sure he has them. Heck I just stick it in my pocket when I'm not using it. It's always with my loose change.

You should bring your T1 up to Frederick and run some mod sedan with us. It's a blast.

Mounting the front eccentrics so that the hingepins run through the centers will keep the front end geometry the same as the standard parts.

You can rotate the eccentrics 90 degrees from that position, raising the hingepins or lowering them. Raising the hingepins lowers the front roll center, lowering the pins raises the front roll center. A lower roll center would tend to provide more steering grip and/or softer steering response. A higher roll center would provide a sharper steering response, but less overall steering grip.

You can also mount the hingepin at an angle by setting the front eccentric lower than the rear or vice versa. This provides reactive caster. With the fronts of the hingepins lower than the rears caster reduces as the front suspension compresses and increases as the front suspension extends.

Default kevlar belts

Does anyone know anything about these belts? Any benefits or are they just replacements? Thanks for any help, Dave. Also, Trips, thanks for the quick reply.

Check out the previous articles on MyTSN in the Xray VIP room. There is a detailed explanation of all the settings!

Unhappy Luck you don't live in Australia

Although the Aussie R/C industry is only the size of a Fly on an Elephants backside, the Xray has out sold any Pro race car on the Australian market at a cost of AUD$900.00 with the Hudy promo kit. This kit has set the new bench mark for any new R/C car on the market. Recently seen at a race meet held in Sydney's Olympic venue, the Dome [www.autosalon.org] as the class favourite, it would be great to see the Euro and US R/C community support racing in Australia. The distributor in Sydney does a fantastic job with stock service [Custom Model Cars], however, some $ support to allow the sport of R/C racing to grow would mean cash flow towards importing guest drivers [instant celebs]around the World to drive with your friendly Australian counter-parts

Enough said,

IDM

Hello fellow Xray drivers. The ROAR On-road nats is going to be 60 mi away from where I live in Aurora, Colorado and I can actually compete this year. I was wondering if we would like to organize an 'Xray pit' where all the Xray drivers would be pitting. Who would be interested? BTW, here is the info:

Default balance weights

Does anyone have to run balance weight on their chassis? I got the Hudy balance kit and mine appears to be level.

It seems the hype with the XRAY has died down.

I ran my XRAY this past weekend and broke an upper arm while trying to pass on the outside. I was trying to rush by another car for the next turn and it was a risk I could have done with out. Clipped a board. Bummer. The track was deep and the driver stand only two feet high. It was a challenge.
