Giuseppe, so true.

TonyV, just to let you know, your designer made some of the PDF downloads with crop-marks.

Also, on the '05 Set-up Sheet under "SUSP.HOLDER", what's the OPTIONAL=0.75? I didn't see it on the Optional parts list either. I also love the fact that you incorporated a spring chart as well. Great job! Can't wait to pick up my 05.

Optional 0.75 is to fine tune the rollcentre more, as it is now you can change the inner mounting of the A arms by 1.5 mm, but with this optional holder you can go halfway i you like. Also you can change anti-dive/kick up or anti/pro squat by 0.75 degrees now to. :-)

Andreas, thank you much! I noticed that the basic rubber set-up had the arms in the middle roll-center holes. Would Joel's FK set-up (pro-dive & pro-squat) work with rubbers on the FK05?

Yes sure, both pro squat and anti dive can work very good on rubber tires. Both me and Joel used that on the T1FK. However we have not made a perfect setup for rubber tires yet. That is much more complex then foam tires. Me Joel and Viktor Wilck will go for a race this weekend and we will test a lot of setups so I'll report back to you about setups after the weekend.
Other wise the standard setup is a very good starting setup.

Catch you later

Just curious, has anyone tried springs from other manufactures on there Xrays. I have an 05 coming and my hobby shop doesn't support Xray (I'm going to try to change that) but they do have Schumacher, Associated and Losi springs. I also have some Losi springs from my xxxs. They are also cheaper than the Xray springs because have to buy them in a 4 pack.

The 4 you get from xray are matched. Therfore your getting a better spring than you do from others. And I here congo springs from trinity work but, I have never tried them.

The Associated springs as supposed to work - I hope so, since I just bought a set for my '05. I have been told that the XXXS springs are too big in diameter - this from a pretty reliable source. (A buddy that moved from Losi XXXS to XRay T1FK last year)

I like to stick with the Xray springs. They are available in such fine increments that I really don't see any reason to use anything else. Also, like a previous poster said, they are matched, or so Xray says.

More options to buy. the motor protectors looks good.
very nice indeed but better buy them at your local lhs, world-model distributes a lot of rc products unfortunately they only sell by the bulk. first time order should at least exceed HK$20,000.00 and thats a lot of dough

I dyno/measured all my spring sets from all my cars and the Xrays were the most accurate, Kyosho second. So I sold the others. I would strongly suggest not putting Chevy springs on your Porsche.

Besides, we wouldn't be able to help you out with set-ups, because 30lbs Assoc. spring is not the same as 30lbs Xray. Oils differ too.

If you have a friend that may be getting an Xray too, why not split the spring sets. I never use four of the same color spring on my cars.

Sounds great, Andreas. Early next week I should have my 05 ready for stock setup testing. But I'm looking forward to you and the guys insight on alternative setups.
