So then why does nexus racing have them under t3 and there called the "new style" weights and the description is for use with xray touring and nitro cars

hi all,

after a successful first run weekend with the Xray i can say i def made the right choice in getting the beast - so happy in fact i will be placing an order for another one next month.

i have a question on the application of this car in 21.5? we are supposed to run our speedo in blinky mode for the nationals if running in the 21.5 class. do you think an xray would be able to compete in such a "low" power class? is the drivetrain that free?

i know it can obviously compete in mod and 13.5 but would it be capable of a solid performance in 21.5?

The front of the top deck has had a slot put in it, the slot in the middle was increased on the front end.

With the chassis, 0.75mm has been taken in on both sides front and rear in each of the corners. If you compare it to yours you will see the down stop parts on chassis seems to stick out further on the photos.

You can also see the servo has been moved fully inboard!

If it can compete in mod why wouldn't it in 21.5? The simple answer is, of course it will

I also tried 1.5mm shims at the front wishbones (no arm sweep), 2.8F & 2.6R springs.
0 & 1mm ackerman shims, shocks more upright, 1mm at the steering link knuckle and HPI Pink(F) and silver(R) springs.
Also 1mm at he front upper clamp

The biggest change was making the front upper link shorter which helped.
Didn't have time to try making the rear link longer, or reducing rear toe in.

Rear grip wasn't an issue unless I really tried to provoke it.

Would changing to the 2.0mm chassis give me a lot more steering?
Any idea's?

Thanks
Skiddins
Before buying a new chassis, try the mod that I've done on mine, trust me, car is much much better all round! As much steering as you want but back end is super planted!

Are you looking for more initial steering or more middle to exit?
