I never got the threaded part out where the axle was in any condition to have it glued back in

Use a CRC axle if your breaking the Xray axles. You need to use extra bearings or shims for the diff but it works. Or you can get the CRC hubs as well.

Were you able to get the bearings off the axle after this happened? I've never been able to do that with out destroying the axle For me, once the threaded portion came unglued it expanded the axle and actually split the end. This happened 3 times.

If you can re-glue it let us know how it goes.

New to WGT, and have a couple of questions.

What size motor do you run in the WGT class? 13.5 or 17.5?

Who makes a race spec 1s compatible esc?

Thanks for the help!

For indoor we drive 17.5T 2s lipo or 10.5T 1s lipo.

Outdoor we drive 10.5T 2s lipo (100+ km/h...). But often the club (drivers) decide which motor will be run during a race.

Hobbywing has a great 1s 120a esc on the market. You can use this one also for 2s lipo's

Default Servo for 10.5T outdoor

New to WGT, just picked up a roller. Will run outdoor 10.5T 2S lipo. What do people like for a metal gear, fast, good torque servo that fits?

Hi David,

you must use a low profile servo.

The Futaba 9551 ore savox 1251 are the one i use.

Don't forget to put 1.5mm shim below the servo mountpost. ortherwise the servo don't fit.

Have fun with the x10!

i just built one of these cars.

It has a steel tube rear axle out of the box...maybe they have changed cause it sounds like may have been graphite before.

I have not taken it to race track yet but the kit, like other xray stuff is top quality, way better than my previous pan car.
The only thing that doesnt seem quite right (although not a problem) is the range of adjustment for height of the rear axle. I have to use the +2 inserts (lowest ride height) with worn set of tires and would never use any of the other inserts.

Hi Jeff,

Xray makes good quality! It is one big party to build one out of the box
They change the graphite rear axle for the steel one. I tried both and i'm very happy with the new steel one.

The X10 is een large X11. Unfortunatly XRAY have't though about the ride height of the tires of the X10. That is why I bought the ride height from CRC. These one are from 0 till 3.5mm The tires out of the box are 63mm. Your ride height will be 8.5mm. That's a little bit too height, so you can make the tire smaller to 61mm. Ore you don't mined for a practice and drive till they are on the right ride height for the race. That's what i do. I drive 1 ore two times and then they are oke.

Good luck with your X10 and keep posting!

Halewijn

yeah well i gave it a run on carpet, starting with base setup. with a couple of changes got it handling spot on.
First thing was the preload on the centre shock spring (base setup sheet: 5mm) I reduced this to almost none so there was a slight droop on rear pod when lifted off the ground. I added some spacers to raise the hight of the rear ball end of the shock to make it a little harder as i do not have any harder springs to use. Ideally i want a harder spring and probably thicker oil too for centre shock.
Then i added a little more caster. I played with front track width but default (no spacers) was best.
Its a very solid and consistent car i had alot of fun driving it as it went exactly were i wanted it thru cormers. I run a 2 cell shorty pack and 10.5T so its very quick and light. Asphalt next!

ok i've now got mine running. I was just after some information on tyres. I have Dbl pink and other colour tyres. What i want to know is the different shore ratings and the different manufacturers comparisons.
Like what shore rating is the dbl pink wheels.
