when you guys are racing ROAR events, how and where are you adding the weight we need to make limit.

I bought the center weights for the car, with the BMI chassis I only need to add 40 grams. With out it I was well under buy 140 grams.

It's a wise decision on the part of Jason to place all the weight in the chassis. It's the lowest part of the car causing the center of gravity to be lowered as well. Yes, it is heavier because it's a superior graphite and also thicker as well.

Default Setup

Hey guys. I was setting up my car to Joshs '04 carpet nats setup(for a starting point) and noticed that the front is softer than the rear. Is this correct?

What I changed from the setup and it seems that alot of people are doing this, is if you are running the side-by-side saddle packs like the stock or BMI 350 chassises run light purple springs up front (Pepto Bismal pink springs) and Violets in the rear. The setup he is using works perfectly if you are using the BMI split chassis. Thats all I did was change the springs and the setup works perfectly.

That's what I did as well. But changes I made to suit my driving: Xray 30wt all around. 2 holes closed in front and all open in back. I set my front wheel toe to 0 and I used the 1 degree caster clips in the front hindge pin holders to give the pins 1 degree toe out. I also didn't max my wheel base. It's stock length at 258mm. Droop is at 1 in front and 5 in back. This set up lays it down for stock and 19T. The 350 chassis is a must for carpet.

A Josh tip: Cut off the unused outer holes on the steering/servo saver block. This usually hits the bulk heads during hard hits and will keep you from breaking steering blocks.

I second the servo saver tip removal idea. I actually just dremeled mine down (for visual sake ;-)) and it prevents breakage of steering arms.

funny thing, the servo save on the original t1 is exactly that. just the 2 inner holes

There’s also a couple of good starting setups on the Xray website.

Dittto jdwca, the car looks so good and so well prepped... it's nice to find a mod to do to the car. I dremeled mine down clean to look factory done. I feel sorry for my buddy's Xray. He's so sloppy I offered to clean up his wiring and such overnight, just so I would be able to look at it next race day.

Default Motor Screws

Seems i can never keep motor mounting screws around for any of my cars. I also cant seem to find the right size anywhere.
I belive the thread is 3mm but finding the right length is a pain as well.

Does anyone know a place where i can buy specific screws to mount my motor? i belive they are M3x8 Socket Head
