If you take the two springs in your fingers and Press them together the harder spring will compress less compared to the softer spring. That will let you know which one is the 2.0 versus the 4.0 or whatever versions you purchase.
Thx I will try it:-)

Just recently picked up a 2016 X1, and at the local track, the general consensus is that people prefer bodies other than the 2016 Xray body.

Is this also the general feeling of other X1 drivers out there? I like that the 2016 Xray body fits the chassis perfectly, as the only other body I've tried (Protoform 15) seems to require a decent amount of cutting to fit around the side shocks.

are there any better fitting options out there that are also preferred for whatever downforce / driving characteristics people seem to like more than the Xray body?

A simpler way is to measure the wire and then count the windings.

Nothing wrong with the kit body, no performance difference with any other body, at least not to me anyway.

Has anyone figured a way to make diff adjustments without having to pull the wheel and cap?

Newbie to the class so excuse the ignorance. What batteries do you guys run? I figured out a few pages ago that it's a 2s shorty but have no idea of the capacity needed.

I'm running a psycho cells racing (awesomatix) 5000 mah shorty pack.

as you can see from the photos above, its gets you very close to minimum weight requirements, but still leaves room to add balancing ballast.


you'll want a 2s "shorty" pack in the 3000-5000 mah range.
