I just came back from racing today. I made it to the A-main using my TC4. In the 6 car race, the finish was TC4,TC4, Xray FK05, Xray FK05, Xray FK04, and a XXX-S. There was a an RDX in the B-main and it did look pretty nice. But after I got me TC4 moving, I'm never leavin' it.

I'm not sure what that will actually do. The only thing I can think of is more weight forward. It hasn;t given me any weird characteristics at all. The car is just awesome.

To really tell if it does anything, you'd have to run the same car with the shocks reversed. But I am sure the positing of the shocks make for a more balanced car.

There are alum. hinge pin mounts that you use to make these changes along with roll center.

Goto www.corallyusa.com click on cars then manual and scroll thru that it explains how all of this works.

I tried to copy it here but it want let me.

I've run the XRay for the last couple months exclusively on a carpet track with rubber and foam tires. I recently went to the Pro4 and I believe both are highly capible vehicles

Thing was, Everyone was buying the XRay parts and I have pretty much a personal stash of Pro4 parts at the LHS. Plus a couple of my friends run the Pro4

I too have ran X-Ray's for the past year or so and am very happy with the car ... aside from a couple little concerns that can be found in any car, the FK05 has been great. It has actually knocked about a second off my lap times - such that a racer that I used to have to move over for 2-3 times to allow for lapping is now only slightly faster ... soon, and with practice, I should be able to keep up with him.

The biggest improvement that I saw with the car was how it runs in the tighter in-fields vs. my FK04. I am picking up alot of time on the technical stuff.

Only compliant I have about the car has been beaten-to-death in another thread.

Can't wait to try it outdoors.
