Just a heads-up...there are 2 FK04's on fleabay right now, both look to be in top shape.

Here is an 05 rubber/asphalt setup from the XRay forums http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...6&setup=t1fk05

Not sure how far off that is from the box setup as I don't run the 05, but either would be a good starting point. I'll let Chris step in here as he currently runs the 05 chassis as well as the Evo 2. You could also try searching the thread for "asphalt setup" "rubber setup" "05 asphalt setup" etc...happy hunting!

Thanks. I've been reading the Xray Forums for the past three days. There is a lot of good information. Your not going to see that kinda info for other companies. lol. If only the parts were little cheaper!

Keep an eye out in the for sale forum and on the 'bay for parts lots or parts cars...or if there are particular parts that you need (like front end parts which take the worst of the beatings we dish out), post an ad in the wanted to buy forum. I was blown away with the responses I got in a wtb fk04 thread just a few weeks ago, so there are cars and parts out there to be had cheaper than full retail.

Got some pinions tonight and I am a happy camper...with a 116 spur a 44 through 48 will fit (this is with a Speed Passion Ultra Sportsman 13.5, your results may vary slightly). No belt rub with the 44, with the 48 the lowest point on the motor is dead level with the bottom of the chassis. Again, with the chassis dremeled to allow the motor to swing down. This gives a FDR range of 4.28 - 4.67. I'm guessing here, but I would bet that a 114/50 would fit as would a 118/42, giving a (theoretical) range of 4.04 - 4.97...almost a full point swing. I think that would cover 93.7% of tracks anyone would race on (barring oval jlfx ). This is all calculated with the low ration option, so the standard 2.125 would be a bit higher FDR all around.

I have to put in a nod here to XRay's spur gears...I have run Kimbrough gears exclusively since racing gold-tub RC-10's converted to pavement oval cars, but the 116 I picked up tonight was XRay and the difference is immediately apparent...so much more precise all around. My "standard" gear mesh was way too loose with the XRay spur...only the tiniest bit of slack is needed and the drivetrain is noticeably quieter and smoother as well. I'm a believer.

Thank you sir
.07! I think you will have all the servo you can handle! I almost didn't post pics because of the Z590 hiding under the receiver
