Says the guy that NEVER came to race. The '11 has definitely been a solid choice for weird traction. It's still not where I'd like it to be with its mid-corner hesitation, but there's a lot to try still.

, If you met my ex you would know why... lol. I came to the track a couple times lol. Now I get to race as much as I want , Come out to the Xray race dec 2 if you want to see what high grip is . Hesitation? Like mid corner steering? Try the 1mm washer on the front shock tower. BTW, I have a spare tcx if you want one lol.

It turns great, it just doesn't finish the way I'd like.

I got enough of high (and low) traction last season to last 3 lifetimes. I just want a car that doesn't traction roll and doesn't spin out randomly. So far the XRay gets that part right.

Make sure you have the spool in straight and the eccentrics aligned in the same direction. Never had a belt come off especially a new car, best to check your build of the front end again.

Also check the belt is tight enough

well one thing im thinking of is i did shave off a mm or 2 off of the star shaped piece that lies inbetween the 20t pulley and the spur gear.....i only did that to fit a robson racing spur....u think that might be the case?

Something not put together right. i would get someone else to look at it, if you can find it.

So u dont think its the fact that i shaved that piece inbetween center pulley and spur ....i think that might have the belt running a little off center but i will double check the front end and both hubs are in the same spot in the bulk heads

Hi all - I just wanted to give you guys a heads up that I've received a new manufacturing order of Side Piece Racing Nikita Outdrives for XRay T2/T3 touring cars. They go along perfectly with your new 2012 rides . The first batch of outdrives sold out recently at the Halloween Classic. This new revision includes a deeper U cut within the outdrive to support 52mm drive shafts when the front end isn't shimmed super wide.

Take a pic and post. Someone will figure out what's wrong.

When you us two servo posts of you hit sometimes the servo mounts can tweak the chassis so I am guessing he used the inside servo post and shoe goo. Will ask him in a sec.

Maybe he cut off the right ear and moved the servo closer to the belt? If you look at Ronald's car, it looks like he's doing just that. He also chopped off the nub for the left ear.

Can you ask Alex what shorty servo he's using? Does he go out of his way to have the ugliest wiring in RC?
