FYI, I've put up pics of the TeamGP BMI chassis FK05 on the BMI thread. Results from testing it on the local indoor carpet track will be forthcoming.

BTW, do most of you read the xray forum as well?

I've decided to sell my 80% built t1fk05. It's on ebay right now...check it out. It'd be perfect for those looking for a second spare plus all the essential hop-ups and some spare.

I'd post the link but I've been told by someone that I can't...so pm me if you are interested...

ok, got my kit. question on chassis prep: i'm going to bevel/round the edges and CA them as i did with my pan cars, but... do the batter slots need to be filed/glued? i'm not worried about the size of the cells at the moment, just if the edges are cutting into the shrink wrap. thx in advance.

gee-dub yes do the battery slots just like your pan car or you will cut your shrink wrap.

Well everyone I made the plunge about a month ago, and bought the 05. So far I have only one complaint, and it is a small one at that, I had my first experience changing the spug gear the other day....A most unpleasent experience

Being a machinist, I am going to attempt to make a longer layshaft, and put a small collar with a grub screw on the right hand rear bulkhead, I will have to make a bushing for the layshaft to ride in. The only thing I see in the way will be the battery strap, but that is a lot easier to remove one screw and a post to reach the spur. I know that Tamiya already has something very close to what I just described on the 415, so I am going to take a closer look at my friends 415 to see how it works.

I will post my progress later on if I think it can be done.

Where is the best place to buy the foam inserts for the xray shocks? My LHS doesn't carry them and I need them fairly quickly. Does anyone know of any place in CA that carries them? Thanks in advance.

Have you seen the new Serpent shocks which comes with Serpent's new 960 eight scale Nitro car?

Here is a link: http://www.mytsn.com/products/desc.asp?prid=4090

Since Xray have the same design shocks as Serpent USED TO have. I assume that this shock would fit easily to the xray car (probably only the shaft should be replaced).

What do you think - is there a chance that we get this new shock or I'm out of my mind.

I would be happy to change my tamiya shocks ( )

Actually, the pic of shocks looks as if the fronts are shorter than the rears. Another thing you will probably have to contend with fitting these shocks, the overall length may be longer than the original shocks.

Buy some aluminum bodies and your all set. I don't see anything wrong with the xray shocks. Stick with the xray shocks. Once you learn how to use them for different applications, you'l be dialed in no time.
