Default New Top Deck

One of the best things about the new top deck is the fact that it has a belt tensioner This means that you can run the belt very loose without it skipping on acceleration

How many of you are running pro dive on carpet, say holes 2-3. What is this going to do to the car? Will lowering the front roll center to holes 2-1 give me more steering?

I need more on power steering. I had my rear links in the lower holes on the tower and almost level and the car didn't have enough rear traction till I put about 3 laps on the car. So I raised it up and made the link level and now the rear end sticks good, but I noticed that the car will kinda hook a little right in the middle of the turn. I was thinking or closing the pistons on the front to help this, but I also need more on power steering.

Does anyone run 3/32nd diff balls? I have a whole bunch of them and would like to use them up, but I just wanted to make sure that they work ok.

Also what was the part number for the losi thrust bearing that will work for the diff?

Thanks

to give u more onpower steering try wishbones in holes 1 and 2 (bottom and middle)

so rear if the rear wishbone is in bottom hole, front of rear wishbone is in middle hole.


one thing to try is rear wishbone in bottom holes, makes the back end planted but without loosing steering...dunno why but it works well on tarmac i found

well the 3/32 diff balls come to about 2.38mm (or call it 2.4)..arent standard 2.5mm? there would be a fair amount of play in the gear..thats if the balls even touched the diff rings.

The kit balls are 2.4, so I figured they would work ok.

Raving-monkey, I was planning on trying the roll center flat in those holes.

brians11, What exactly do you mean? Are you talking about the newer rear hubs that have the toe built in? As of right now I have the standard ones with the 1mm clip on the arms.

exactly, the hubs with toe built in to them... it is supposed to help the car rotate in the middle and off.. also, you can put a spacer to sweep the front arms back like you do to add toe to the rear end... put it up front, maybe 1mm that should get you some steering

Scrad, can you enter your full setup in the setup sheet section on www.teamxray.com/xforum ? It would help us to be able to see the full picture of your setup and possibly notice something that is evident.

Unhappy

Ok guys, I had an anal moment a few months ago and sold my 05 with a huge box of parts.
Question is where can I get the tuning and spare parts for a good price?
I purchased a new never ran one yesterday, it has the box stock set up.
I will be running it on carpet and I don't know where to start.
The one I had before was set up and DIALED when I got it.
Any help you guys can get would be great,
Thanks
Dayton

Dayton,

Xray 30 wt oil is about equal to Losi 50wt and the same for AE oil.
