That will work fine ..I only did the cone washers as I wanted to drive a screw all the way through to eliminate the chance of a shock poping off do to the extreme G-Forces I generate when I hack someone out of a corner

Does that fit the 2mm chassis too? I run rubber and gear Monster Stcok Pro around 7-7.1, whith stock spur I'm a little too high and low, same with C2.

edseb,

As far as fitting the 2mm chassis it should not be a problem it should be comparable to a 87 (48 pitch) Spur gear.

I hope this helps out with your roleout.

Best Regards

Xray racers, just wanted to let you know we are having the annual Beat the Heat Race here in Memphis July 30-31. You can find more info here- http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.p...5&page=1&pp=40The reason I wanted to hit you guys up about it is that I've been talking smack to the Losi guys since I run Xray. I think they may be coming stong...lol
Anyways, Toastie will be here to run electric as will Ron Atomic to run nitro. If you guys wanna come see how you measure up to one of the best non-factory asphalt Xray racers in the country then come on down. Toastie isn't the only fast Xray guy that will be here considering I seriously doubt there are many that can come to my house and punk me out...

Feel free to ask questions and such. It's gonna be a blast. So far there's probably double the number of racers planning to come than from the last 4 years!!

Quick rundown-
stock- rubber tire 24deg ROAR stock
19t- rubber tire 24deg tagged arm. Adj timing OK but must be set to 24*
mod- mod; bring it! rubber tire

nitro sedan sportsman- 12 or rtr 15, foam tires
nitro sedan expert- 12 only, foam tires

all classes ROAR weight and typical TC legal race bodies or something real close (ala Snowbirds rules)

cookout after quals are over Sat night. BYOB
anyone not having FUN will be DQ'd immediately!!!!

Which piston did you use 2 hole or 3 hole? And are you still using Xray shock oil? I will be out at SW with Roger and the boys next month on the 15th, hope to see you there!

I've stripped a screw into the right rear bulkhead and demolished the threads in the hole trying to get it out. If anyone in the US has bought an extra set to use any of the other bulkheads from the set, please PM me so I can purchase a right rear from you.

I'm paypal ready! Thanks.

Default FK05 chassis

just a simple question to all Fk05 experts, Will the fk05's chassis fit the T1 raycer? Or what do I need to make my battery config. sidexside instead of saddle pack? I mean what chassis do I need?

Thanks

Does anybody know if there are any aftermarket spools available for the Xray05. I ran the Multidiff spool this weekend, but i am afraid of it breaking at some point. I know they used to make a spool for the older platforms does anyone know if it is still available or have one for sale. please email thanks.

Got my new FK'05 ready to go tonight, I can't wait to get it on the track.
I have never driven any of the Xray cars, only Tc3. What differences should I expect?
Will be running on carpet, using one of Jilles carpet set ups off the XRAY site.

I think RCMushroom might have one. If "TheGame" is reading I think he had ordered one and should be able to help you guys out.

You might be able to save the bulkhead by installing a helical insert. McMaster Carr sells 3mm inserts.
