Default TEAM XRAY X12

Teaser is out on teamxray.com. I'm sure it's debuting this week at the IIC in Vegas.

Through careful analysis of the internal view through the front wheel arch, the location of the rear body posts, and the reflection beneath the body, I will say: inline, damper tubes, new caster blocks, antenna mount with round hole, a number of screws, motor mounted on the right pod bulkhead, and overall optimization for maximum maximumness. Oh, and Hudy spring steel steering links.

Bam. Done. Next thread.

No, but the ball ends will be. They have to leave something for the 2013 X12.

Of course. Much like the optimized cardboard box it will be packed in.

Would a car with "optimized balls" be enough to get Goetz to run 12th scale?

Never. The distraction would be too great (something to play with, I guess). That, and the cars are "too simple".

So you're saying that Goetz would prefer the challenge of "optimizing" his own balls?
