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.

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.
