Questions?? Xray Chassis Identification

To all that may be able to help or offer insight. I recently scored a vintage Xray T1, which was the owner stated was an Evo. Now I have been out of the TC scene for quite a while, so am unfamilar with the platform. From what I see it may be a cross between two Xray T1 versions. I can tell the diff's are installed wrong (right to left configuration), and I noticed the front bulkhead was not anodized as the rear. I bought this for my 6 year old son to use, and for him to start racing in the 27T class here, but want to know what I have here. I also want to make sure, so I can download the right instructions from the Xray site. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

It looks like the front bulk heads are from a T1r, I got two, it looks like an evo chassis. I got the t1 chassis with 6 battery slots on each side.

It looks like my T1FK. The Evo has a different upper arms in the front..pivot ball type. I would say the guess is right about it being a hybrid......alot of guys bought the FactoryKit conversion to get rid of the pivot balls.....The manual is at Xray...there is a long and short arm version so check closely what you buy at the LHS...I bought a incorrect part once....

thanks for all the help,

One last thing, of which I do not know is a big deal, the rear and the front shocks differ, in both overall length and the front shocks caps have a sort of pin that falls into the top caps groove, where as the back ones have a molded sort of key that keys into the top cap.

I'll look at the manual tonight and post a complete answer,,,,,,,,but I think the rear shocks are different...they use a clicker type damper adjustment. You can rotate them and do some adjusting.....not sure on this...I bought mine used as well and haven't had to open up the shocks.

I belive the x-ray shocks are the same from front to rear.

Take a look at this page, you can used a fixed or adjustable pistions, you might have one kind in one fixed set of shocks and the others might be the adjustables.

The rears are the sam as the EVO 2, and the fronts are the same as the original T1. They are all adjustable, with three clicks each.

I read some more in the thread about the T1, and now I wonder if it was a good investment to have my son race it, being that spares are hard to come by.

The T1 shares parts with the FK04 and the other T1 series cars.

The shocks on the original T1 are different front to back the rear are longer. The original chassis was only saddle pack the same as yours. The one with 6 slots each side started with the evo. The bulkheads on yours look to be evo/fko4. The original also only came with pivot ball susp. The "C" hub came later. Parts can still be bought for all of the Xray models.
SCOOTR117 is right about there being arms of 2 different lengths. The long ones attatch on the inside of the bulkhead.
I sold my last original T1 and my evo about 2 months ago and the new buyers have bought both new and used parts since.
You have got in my opinion an excellent car for your son to learn with. Very strong and still, believe it or not capable of competing at club level near the pointy end of the field.

I have been finding parts very easy, check e-bay, stormer, and other online shops. I just bought a cheap car and used it for parts.

Thanks everyone for your help, I have ordered a few parts from Stormer and found quite a bit on ebay. I splurged and bought my son a set of new Xray aluminum shocks. So once all the parts arrive I will assist him with rebuilding the car and getting started.

Thanks again,

I will send pics once completed
