What do you thing i might have done wrong, moving the spacers around on hinge pins won't move wheel base enought but turning the arms around and remounting shock etc can get 225mm.

Cheers Paul

But they are sold by RC Mart to me as 225mm chassis.
And they told me they are only selling the 225mm and not 210mm

Hi Liam,

Haven't tried, won't have the opportunity to until the next CWIC meeting, assuming there is an M-06 there again.

Apart from the Scirocco being WRONG WHEEL DRIVE the rear overhang is not so big on the shell either.

Dave

PS Good debut for the Triumph at the CWIC today, TQ and win in the first A-final, driver error led to DNF in second final.

Wheel base is measured between the centres of the axle shafts and not between the edges of the wheel hexes as per xevo001.jpg

I know, the ruler just there to show its no where near 225mm.

Have turned the rear arms around and remounted shocks and top links to get it to 225mm. Waiting to here back for RC mart as well.

Quick post to let you know that the Xevo Triumph TQ'd the last meeting of the CWIC (Chippenham Winter Indoor Series) here in the UK, winning round 9. I ended up third overall in the series having done half of it with an M-05, the Xevo TQ'd both the meetings it was used at.

Email me at [email protected] and I'll send you a scanned copy of my one.

Be warned, it's next to useless. No, actually it's worse than that...
