Razorback - Try Ralph Burch's set up from the asphalt nats, I've been using it as a starting point at two different tracks and it is really good right out of the box. Only changes I made were to shorten up the wheelbase a little for the tighter corners, and last race I had to move the front shocks in a hole for a little more turn in. It's by far the best set up I've ever had on my FK05 for asphalt.

I have found one problem though, the setup calls for the shocks to be run in the outside position on the arm and to use a 3mm shim under the rear hub camber link, so now the wheel rubs in both places. It is only slightly rubbing in both spots, just wondering what you guys have done to fix this.

he was running the 2 degree aluminum rear hubs, they give more room for the shocks by turning the rear of the wheel away from the back of the arm, and might be a bit shorter.......

Default Overdrive

Hi, have any of your guys try the overdrive on your xray. I thought of trying it by putting a 32 gear on the front one-way and 34 gear on the rear ball diff. I heard about this on on-road gas car which give you a higher speed on the straight. Let me know if any of you have try it.

Xray got a steal when they got Paul. Kyosho made a big mistake.
