Thanks for all the info and I am sure as soon as they are out you will all be talking about it. I would still like to know if anyone has an opinion on how the car is to work on? I will be checking back often.

Hi X,

As far as the car... I love it.. it's easy to work on (it was my 1st car) and it basicly "fell" together unlike other cars which required hand fitting. Once you get into the ballpark with a setup it's rock solid.. I can't say enough about it. I got up to speed with help from a friend of mine and then really started to get better to the point where I am racing with the faster drivers and taking home trophies from the A and B mains.

Buster,

One question regarding the new parts.. They have been released by X-ray on the site and there are pics and all... but what do they do

I run basically on a asphalt, low to mid traction. I would say a pretty tight track, but too tight for a one way...I still might try it...

Any insights?

KansasRacer :: I would not use the one-way on a tight track. It may simply be my driving style but I have more control of the car with a diff. I bought my SS Axles from Buster a while back. I have met the boards a few times knowing I would have bent the Alu axles.

Do you have the Essentric Upper Pivot Pin Holders? I find when placing the upper arm to the lowest setting I can track through flowing turns at much higher speeds. The car has been on rails lately. Again I race on a open and flowing track where you never let off the throttle, but it may be worth while to experiment with that setting.


HighX :: the car is a dream to make adjustments to. It has to be one of the easest to build and easiest to perform track side setup changes to. I put more effort into my Losi to change perhaps the rear wheel base, rear toe-in, and front caster for example. With the XRAY you won't tear the car apart to make those adjustments.

Thanks for the update Buster. I should be calling you in another two weeks.

Uhh that would be Mario Hudy you are telling "old news" to. I think he is letting us know because it is his car design and he cares to make sure we are informed if we are not in the VIP room. So to respond boldly...make sure you know what (or who) you are talking about.

More importantly.. ask Mr. Hudy what if anything they are doing about the upper front bumper breaking so frequently.

Don't crash...don't break!!

No...seriously. I use to have the same problem as you, I haven't improved my driving but I have done a mod. If you go to your local electronics component shop you can buy those PCB boards (fibreglass). Cut one out to the same shape as the upper bumper and epoxy the two together. Don't cut any holes out the middle and before you epoxy, stick some of those carbon fibre 'look' stickers in the hole position (just slightly larger than the holes- not all the way across).

This will give you a massively stiff upper bumper. Since doing this mod I have had zero breakage! Some people like to use a more flexible upper bumper, but this will cause more load to go the the front tongue of the chassis, which is even more expensive!

Alternatively, you can just epoxy two original upper bumpers together, this is just a bit more expensive!

After doing this mod you will have to use longer screws to hold down the piece and use shim to shim the front body mount posts...don't forget the longer screws, otherwise you will strip the gearbox threads! Good luck!!

The upper bumper will be solved as this is the only part there is receive feedback should be improved. It will done asap.

Enjoy racing.
