mine where tight then 4 kids later

Really
i have had no slop at all in any of my 3 Xrays , i would think you may have a worn out component in the steering
as for your balls being tight take them out of the car and pull the seal of , then spray a heap of cleaner or the likes in them and spin them until they lossen up , re oil them with full synthetic oil or sim and reinstall
this should help

Jayjp, I ran rubber on asphalt for the first time last weekend and took 3rd in the A main. My car was faster than the results suggest, but my driving was off. The car was very balanced and I had more grip than all but the leader. Here's the setup:

http://www.teamxray.com/xforum/xform...7&setup=t1fk05

If using my setup on an FK04 or EVO I'd suggest taking out the anti-dive and running both front pin holders in the middle holes, as well as running both rear pin holders in the middle or upper holes. This is due to the fact that the FK05 is front heavy and the FK04/EVO are slightly rear heavy if both saddle packs are in the rear slots.

BTW, If you're using Xray oil, put 30wt in all shocks with 3 holes open in front & 4 holes open in rear.

Default chassis question

I just bought a Tc4 TC and battery config. is side by side and I also have a T1 raycer , My question is is there a chassis that I can buy for my T1 that uses a side by side config?

Thanks

I recently bought an Xray Evo2 FOC car, and I was taking it apart and reassembling when I noticed something. Right now I've got the C-Hub suspension on it and that is what I plan on running. I noticed that the guy I bought it off of was running his a-arms on the outside of the bulkheads (see pic).When I look in the manual, it shows them on the inside. The shafts seem like they'd be to long if the a-arm was on the inside. Any ideas?

The FOC came with long suspension, and yours has been upgraded to short suspension found on the FK04 and FK05. So you might want to download to FK04 manual if unsure.

It depends on what kind of 19t. Reedy quads are rpm based, C2s are torque based. I've found 5.8-6.2 depending on motor and size of track. These motors have a sweet spot, so you need to be in that range. I use 767 brushes and go purple +, green or red -. Cut it every run. Others have ideas too. "Lickrim" uses Reedy quad mags and gears around 6.0. He uses black springs on pos side, 766s with 10-15 min break-in, cut every run and use same brushes all day for club racing and 767s for big races. For mod, on V2, go about 12 degrees of timing, hard springs, sprint brushes, and gear about 8.8-9.0, same gearing and timing for Reedy PT although if you use single wire you can go up on timing, but that's by feel. For mod I'm assuming you mean motors 10t and below.

Why can't you use the old ones? I guess if they are unable to reuse, you might have to replace them with another part just like anything else. If you replace the hub and the bearing is blown, you have to replace that too.

well the part itself makes its own thread, you are threading it into the part and i guess its just in there good and i cant get it out, maybe ill keep trying that and might just have to buy the pieces. what do they do anyways, are they stoppers to the suspension doesnt like over "suspend" lol?

If I'm following you right, you're talking about the droop screw in the a-arm. It is used for adjusting droop on your suspension. It is a big tuning feature.
