I feel somone got told in here!

anyways quick question.. when putting the shocks onto the car is it the shiney side of the shock mounting part up or down?

Hope that makes sense, im guessing its shiney side out, dull side onto the ball?

I've made a correction on the inner camber link position in the setup sheet above. They are supposed to be at the lower outer position for short links.

I know they are not amazingly accurate but you are only talking of differences of about 0.01 millemeters. And these can be explained with torrances within the manufacture Also the shock cap-nut and the shock adjustment nut from the newer T2 shocks both fit on the older 05 shock bodies. This is just what I have found with my shock bodies, and I may well have the wrong bodies in the kit. But I doubt it as this is xray! Im sorry if I am wrong with this

But all in all this is an amazing car and I have really enjoyed building it and can't wait to race it! Well done Xray and thanks!
Thanks for looking, but I picked up another kit...... that way I know the rear wont be biased because 'slight' differences.....

I may also try the spool setup tomorrow

With light red springs layed down more for a progressive rate on the rear, the car transitions faster through chicanes, without rolling too much, than when it had violet springs stood up.

The maximum track width, firm front end, initially soft rear end and minimum droop (low CG as well) work very well to prevent the car from lifting the inside tires at all.

The in-board front toe-out stabilizes the camber change of the front wheels as the car transitions from off-power to on-power and helps to eliminate the instability normally associated with a one-way. The steering becomes very consistent throughout the corner, even when feathering the throttle.

Ok, right on the shock bottoms and the shock tops (the plastic parts) there is a shiney side on it and a dull side to the plastic part. what side do i push onto the ball? before i locate it all by a screw to the wishbone/shock tower.

Hope that makes sense

Hi teamgp,

May I ask what is the gold and silver springs equivalent to? White & yellow? Also are the silver/gold springs the same length as the current Xray springs?

Thx!

Its the same as for the ball cup.

There is a small piece of paper added with the kit which addresses this issue.

I *think" its shiny side out, but don't quote me....find the piece of paper!!!!
