Hi,

The dampers used are among the best in the industry in my opinion!

I have changed the stock harder black bladder for the Serpent softer red one's in combination with rebound foams.
This mod is very easy, and cheap!
My shocks are now killer They work even better than my TRF fluid nitride coated shocks

Bye Thomas

Xray dampers loose a LOT of oil. Every Xrayer around here have to fill them up after 1 or 2 races, including me when i ran Xray some years ago..
The Xray dampers are also too long in my opinion, they could have made them quite many millimeters shorter..
But the FK'05 looks sweet anyway

I can't wait until I get my FK05!!!!
It's about time I retired my Xray T1 evo 0.5

Been trying to figure out a way to put pivot ball suspensions from my T1 onto the FK05

I love pivot ball suspensions!

Anybody else on the same frequency?

I've always believed that pillowballs is too heavy and bulky to work at hightraction conditions like carpet.. Might work quite good on asphalt tho

Default Leaky shocks

I have leaky shocks also
i know more racers that have leaky shocks then don`t
but since i have been on the x-ray forum & said it (tonyv knows me well now)
clicker system great
the seals not
so i use that associated green stuff for the shocks , i have no more leaky shocks
i used run 1-2 meetings then have air in them & seapege at the bottom


re FK05
Still can`t see why if the lowered every thing except the shocks & shock towers COG could of got that a lot lower just by shortining the shocks

still getting one though
