My TK05 is in the truck so I cant look to double check, but im pretty sure that where my motors sits is not cut out like the pics above.

Interesting

well i think i have to buy some small pinons.

are you gonna stay with your 415 ?
Where do you get your FK05 from and what did you pay?

Yes Im staying with the 415 at least for the last indoor race. Dont know what will be later. I would like trying a FK05 but the new Yokomo BD and HB also look good. I think Im waiting until the LRP Masters, I hope I can see the other cars there for comparing.

Is it just you or some other people also are changing for Xray at your club?

Default shocks

I just got one of these babys and can I say what a sweet car its was one of the simplest cars to build that I have ever had until I got to the shocks

ok heres the problem I am having a hard time bleeding the shocks I have read the manual over and over and cant get them smooth the oil always feels like there are air pockets in them when I am done

and one more question is the any way to tell if the belts are adjusted right like a certin amount of play because the rear belt feels kind of tight to me

At first I though the shocks were a bit tricky to bleed but after messing around I found a easy way of doing it.

1)Fill the shock to the top, remove the air and re fill to the brim of the shock body. Then screw the cap on all the way to it is tight. (your shock will be hydro locked with the shaft fully extended)

2) release the bottom plastic cartridge ( the HUDY shock tool was designed for this) and then compress the shaft all the way in and let it rebound out to where it stops on its own. (oil will bleed out during this) re tighten the bottom cartridge and you should have a perfect shock that is very repeatable, meaning it is easy to get all 4 to reacte the same.

As for more or less rebound, I have been playing with the XRAY foam inserts or shock O rings, these ofcourse fit under the bladder and make a noticable difference.

Since I have building them like this, I have found the XRAY shocks to be super smooth and consistant.

Spend some time on them, and you will love them.




Hope this helps

They old blade style sway bar does not fit, but the wire one that was used on the short arms does work since all of the parts that would be in contact with the sway bar (upper bumper and arms) are the exact same.

Thumbs up first time xray owner

I have just picked up the new car and had a few questions. I was sick of waiting for the losi. First what size 64 pitch spur gear will fit and what brand? I thought I saw that some brands doen't fit. second is has anyone raced it on rubbei tire carpet with the stock setup yet and how is it? This was definately one of the nicest tourers I have built. Slightly complex but excelent fit and finish.

Look into precision spur gears the biggest will be a 116 tooth or you can try an 108 tooth also

Andy, I heard that 116T fits, but I only had a 112T spur to put into mine. I used a Kimbroughs spur which is about 1.5mm wider than the stock spur. It just nearly scrapes the motor mount, so I took a Sharpie and traced the spur across the inside of the motor mount and shaved off about 1.5mm by putting it on a circular bench grinder. Repolished it with a Dremel. Now I think I can run almost any brand spur that uses the mounting holes.

I heard everybody is 2 to 3 weeks away from any '05 specific parts.
They have the crossover parts (basically suspension)
but all the new stuff is off a bit.
Anybody know if I am wrong and where I can get a multi diff here in the US?

You are right, about 2 weeks until the hop-ups get here.
