29 gives you a rollout of 25.9mm 30 gives a 26.8, I have a monster stock and I've found that something around 27mm is a good starting point for that motor

To 48P or 64P spur gear...? Before I build my 05, I want to know should I buy the 116 64P spur gear (good luck finding one...everywhere is BO) or use the stock 48P gear....? Any CON of using 64P on 05?

Since I have 20-38T 64P pinion collection for my previous and current 12 scale, and I do not want to collect another set of 48P just for the 05.....

I am going to run indoor carpet for now....may be some outdoor asphalt next year......please advise, thanks.

PS...where can I find PRS 116T 64P spur...? And is 116T the one to get? What other should I try..?

Default Car pick

I am uncertain between Xray and the RDX as to which is a better car. I am getting back into the hobby after a year lapse and I am in the market for a new car. Most of the guys at my track are running the T1FK05 but I hear a lot of talk of the RDX as being a better car. Can someone tell me the main advantage of chosing the x-ray over the rdx?

Thanks!

JB

RDX is a very good car, but so is the Xray. I would say its 50 50.


The real big difference, durablity. Xray hands down is a much stronger car. It breaks 10 times less than a RDX.

I just got back into the hobby after a 5 year lapse. I got the xray. Parts are cheeper for it which is a big bonus. And from what i hear it's a better car. I know someone that's sold a cyclone and rdx to buy the fk05 and he says it's the best of the lot. I'm still yet to drive mine.

I would stay with the 64 pitch. EA motorsports has them in stock.

If you're running the 3mm chassis, pick up a few 120t PRS spurs. If 2.5mm, 116t.

mattman-
youre going to want to swap out the yellow and white springs for something stiffer like light purple and lavander. Find a set up on the xray forums or ask a local who drives an xray what they run. Then you'll have a better idea if you need to buy different c hubs etc.

CVD Blades

I had a lot of wear on CVD blades with the use of a spool. Are there any mods or fixes for this? It seems they need to be replaced every 2 runs or so.

The material seems too soft.

I bet you will get your car done way before me...my car is still collecting dust, hope to see you at IRP....btw, where are you going to run your 05?

Here is where I know my carpet foam setup....

http://www.teamxray.com/xforum/viewtopic.php?t=1315

And i know most of the ppl at IRP are using something very similar to that, may be a little bit different due to the personal preference (driving style) but not far off.....here are the basic foam carpet setup, and I hope you got the RcAmerica edition 05...that will save you atleast $100...

1.) Foam/carpet racing:

To adjust the T1FK'05 for foam racing we suggest the use of these optional parts:

---------------------------
301113...3.0mm chassis
301165...Wide Upper Deck
306510...Alu Top Deck Mounts (pair)

303160...Rear Lower Arm Hard
302329 & 302330...4.5 HARD
302095...Foam Front Shock Tower
302251...Composite Steering Block Right 3 Holes
302261...Composite Steering Block Left 3 Holes
308396...Violet (28lb) Spring Set

P-dub or Parma foam bumper

Thank you very much...I am running 3mm chassis, so I will pick up the 120T, but I can only find 116, 118, 124, 126, 128 thru places like KT, EAMS or Speedtechrc......no 120.
What about 2.0mm for outdoor...?
