Can you use Stick Battery Packs With the Xray?

You can buy an optional brace, but why would you want to use sticks?

Oh...sorry if I sounded rude. However, it might be cheaper to convert your batteries to saddle packs, and you get the added benefit of better handling, as the heaviest part of the car (the battery) is more centered on the chassis.

Hey everyone, my xray was running great today! I just need to find a little more corner speed. Any setup tips? I only managed 2nd place in the A-main. I should have had 1st!

Did you vote on the cars in the paint contest yet? I have my X-Ray there with a similar tribal design on the hood.

F1-Fanatic: Thanks for the setup info! This gave me a good stating point. Car ran great, turnin neede some help, but the banked track transistion to flat is hard on all the cars. Both of my buds loved the car Went through 6 packs and 2 motors in pratice Did not get to race the X-Ray though as 1 I broke the shock on the last pack, ( 3 cars in a 1 car hole LOL) and 2 weight. I ordered the center weights, already have front and rear. Anyone else have to run 53 OZ weight limit w/o transponder??? What is the ROAR rule?? My car weighs 51.7 oz with front and all the rear weights.

Buster: Question on the C hub. Is this better for a banked oval where we transistion from a 25 degree bank to infield loop? X-Ray I have to take the corner wide whereas in my TC3 I do not.
Got any shock shafts??

Ouch!! Which speedo did you break? I have the Quantum competition in the X-Ray and Quantum Sport in the TC3. Running the TC3 now as I an still looking for a shock shaft for the X-Ray. Serpent is closed till 24th so I am unable to order parts.

What do you run for 1/12 scale? I was aproached last saturday at the race by 2 others looking to start a 1/12 pan car class. Was considering this as I have an extra reciever, servo already. Know this much || about pan cars. Any place I can look or advice you can offer.
