Remember Haraīs shaft prototype in Cleveland 2003? The motor was on the other side, and the car was very bad. Tamiya have also played around with that on there shaft cars, so thatīs most probably why all shaft cars looks pretty much the same.

Check back a few pages and you will find the pics. That's not the car. That is one that someone else is making.

Much more important is the location of the motor, as this is the moving mass under acceleration as well as under braking, where you go in and out of the corners. This car is far from finished, and thatīs why itīs called "a prototype". Before you hang anyone, or "demand" anything, plese let the team develope the car for a while, so the factory can produce the production product. Thatīs a process, and if you want the result to be good, please have some patient.

Default That car on page 8....

who is making that car? The one with all the Pro 3 parts on it. I think that car has some potential. Just put the batteries closed to the center and on one side. I hate splitting up packs in weird configs.

That was Andreas Myrberg Pro4 prototype. It will never make it into production.

Default Looks like it could be a great car....

maybe HPI should make two TCs like Tamiya. One of each. It looks like it's nearly finished. I wondered how it handled and why they dumped the idea. Wish I had a cnc lathe and the know how. I would make my own car. I just can't get over my old Pro 2.

Default The one thing I never see on a belted cars are...

two piece aluminum bulk heads? One that you can get the diffs out of easy. That's one thing I don't like about the belted car designs I've seen. I have never see it done and I don't see why it couldn't be done. Have it screw in from the top, 4 screws, swing it up, over and it's out. An external diff adjustment would be great.

Default Impactplayer....

I've have never had an X-ray, but just looking at the pictures, I thought it wasn't as tunable as the Pro 4 or TC4. I like the camber link design on those cars. I like the prototype, just make them cheaper! I just want something that handles well, has quaility and is very easy to wrench on. Having the black parts like the X-Ray's 1/8 scale buggy would give it some 'Bling' factor. Does X-ray make molded carbon parts for their cars? Every arm that I have seen looks like nylon plastic.

You ever heard the saying, "You get what you pay for." You can go cheaper like a TC4 but then you will cussing it the whole time building it or you can go with an Xray that will basically builds itself. The car is very adjustable and very well designed. As for the parts they make hard arms but only Factory drivers can get there hands on them. They aren't necessary since the stock ones are hard enough. Carbon graphite would break very easily. All I have to say is don't knock it till you try it.

Default I'm not knocking or bashing....

I just saying what I like in a TC. The X-ray very much appeals to me, but at that price, it would need just a few more design details. I'm just want certain things in a TC before I'll buy one. I have a personal priority list.

RCKNIGHT- The diffs on all of Xrays touring cars are externally adjustable, just stick your 1.5mm hex wrench into the hole in the long outdrive and turn the opposite wheel....easy as pie.... also as thecar sets it only takes 5-6screws to get either diff in your hand... and it doesn't upset the suspension setting either like on the TC# cars... because the suspension is bolted to the bulkheads the entire side of the car you choose comes off as one assembly.... agian more design genius....
