Hey Guys. Whats the easiest way to bevel out the battery slots. I know to use a file or sandpaper.

Is there an easy way to mark out where it needs to be filed down. Like putting paint or something on the bottom of a battery and then putting it in the car and cutting out where the paint is or something like that?

I think you're pretty much out of luck for a couple weeks. Stormer was the last place I know of that had kits, but they're gone now.

I'd heard that T&T here in Dallas had 'em pretty recently:

I tested the serpent shocks yesterday with 57mm foam tires. I can go as low as 4mm in the rear. 4.5 in the front (using foam shock tower). The shocks were assembledin "stock" condition with the original collars. So they fit no problem.

When you measure ride height make sure that the car is in ready to run condition (motor+batteries mounted)

Default Anyone else agree that...

Xray belts wear out fast? I wish Xray would make their belts last as long as Losi or Tamiya

i'm getting some normal wear & tear from the chassis plate scraping on the ground (very abbrasive asphalt), but as far as cracking the chassis, this thing is a tank. if you have pics, i'd be very in seeing where you are breaking at. the front bumper is somewhat cleverly designed with a molded guard (rib) at the front most portion of the chassis to absorb the impact where the car is going over an obstacle.

Whitelazer. You are not alone. First off lose the p-dub bumper. It is too hard and puts too much pressure on the nose of the chassis. I have split 3 myself and about every other gut at my track has the same problem including even a gut with a brand new BMI chassis!!! This is a major problem!!! Its the screws that are coming thru the chassis causing it to split. Best advice, ca the countersunk holes and use screws with bigger heads.

I am thinkinh about switching to a corally at least their chassis dont split. And before anyone bashes me about" stop hiting stuff" just remember people do make mistakes and hit a board going thru a tight chicane sometimes. We are not pro level drivers.

If you guys would just use the two outter screws in the chassis like was posted earlier in this thread you wouldnt crack the chassis at all or break any front end parts because you can still use the P dub bumper. Just leave out the middle screw in the bumper. It will allow it to flex enough not to break.

Yea but if your breaking a chassis now you'll be breaking 5 arms a week with the corally!! I seen a lot of very good drivers break the corally this past weekend!! Arms are the weak part of that car. And they arent much cheaper than an xray chassis
