Cool Euro Foto

Thanks to Team XRay:

This picture is really worth taking a closer look at:

Starting from the back of the car (find the differences):

- Carbon plate on the hubs to get the link even more to the inside;
- No pully in the back + dellrin parts;
- All cups are cut;
- Different one way in the front;
- Additional screw point on the C-hubs. Looks like a possibility to get an additional link like Tamiya has;
- Different antana pipe holder;
- Not sure but front bumper plate looks different to me;
- Phillips screws (??????????? why?????????????????)

Indeed XRay is still looking at further improvements!

Thats really about it!

6 and 7 will only break if someone smacks you from the rear. 2 and 3 will let go when you go for a heavy 'roll'- you can prevent this by running 2 pieces of rear damper plate bonded together- incredability strong!!
Is #7 a commonly broken item? I've seen cars take some pretty hard hits and have never seen a shock body break. Is it because it's plastic? Just curious

I thought so too...until I saw a friend break one and then I broke one! The shock bodies can literally break into two pieces if the car behind uses your car as the brake...a la 'GT2' style!!!!

However, I would not say it was too common!

Thats interesting...he is using the rear longer axles in the front with spacers and the pivot balls tighten right into the A-arms. Wonder what that will do to the car??

Just picked up my EVO2, if anyone is looking for one Ultimate Hobbies in Orange, Ca. has them for $309.00. They will also mail order them.

I have noticed when tightening the screws on the rear bulkheads the drive train binds. If I loosen the screw for the rear brace then everything frees up. Any suggestions. I'm wondering if I have the spacer on the one-way pulley shaft the wrong way. Should the flat part of the spacer be against the one-way pulley or the other way?

Also I noticed that the pictures on the box and on the web page show the car with white springs, mine came with silver springs. When I looked at X-ray's spring selections, I didn't see any silver spings. Is this a new spring?

Any other suggestions would be helpful as well.

Wink Silver spring

The Silver spring is in fact the white (soft spring). The first kits all came with silver springs. Furthermore the new spring set will be available soon (no exact date yet), since they wanted to fine tune the differences between the various springs in order to get the best springset available.

RCFIEND....Mine done the same thing. The reason its binding is the bearing in the LR bulkhead that goes into that plastic cup (not motor side) to hold the layshaft mount isnt seated all the way into the cup. I had to but a perfect size nut driver (on the race of the bearing) and tap it in. It should sit all the way in the plastic cup.
