Default T1fk05

I believe it is a T1 FK05, and I don't think there was an option for split bulkheads.

hmm. Kinda disappointed. I didn't know much about the on road cars and traded a slash 4x4 for it and lots of parts. I ran the part# of some of the spare lower suspension arms and they come back as t2 and t3 parts. But the bulkheads on mine look just like the T1 FK05.

Any down falls of this model?

Its quite old.
Xray parts can be quite expensive, parts for that car may be tricky to get , ebay is a good source for old xray parts.
Unless its in very good condition, it could possibly cost a FORTUNE to get the thing back in good race condition.

Ive had a few xrays, still have one, but I wouldnt recommend an older XRAY to anyone as a 1st onroad car. Think carefully before spending $$$$ on it

Fk05 indeed. Super, super tough car. Easy to drive and fast as well. I still have mine and I never broke ONE thing on this car. Not a single plastic part, no bent hinge pin or CVD, nothing.

The car runs great! I put a new castle creations motor and esc on it as you can see. I may put the speedvpassion motor and esc back in it and sell it. I like newer stuff, however it does run great.

Sounds like you got a bad trade, slash 4x4 isn't cheap to replace and the FK05 is pretty old. Sorry to hear it.
