Got to run my first Xray sedan last night. (T2) Ran it on carpet with rubber tires. This car is very impressive. The adjustablity is terrific and working on the car has been the easiest car to date of all the sedans I have ever had. I set the car up with a very aggressive setup which allowed the car to carry tons of corner speed but was still stable enough in traffic. Definitely looking forward to a fun return to sedan racing.

Running it in Enid didn't count?

Default First Time Back in a Year and with a T2

I ran rc for the first in a year and the T2 was so easy to drive even with a 4.5 brushless. My old ride HPI Pro 4 was so twitchy compared to this car. I have one question and I'm sure it has been answered before but I could not find it using the search function.

What are the spirng rates for the stock silver and gold springs

David, heck no Enid does not count. That concrete surface is too weird from hour to hour let alone day to day to ever count as a good test of a car. There it does not matter what car you are driving. You just hope you have the right tires on at that moment in time! Tulsa's carpet was a much better test.

I disagree as well. I have been one of the people that had struggled there in the past and didnt want to ever run sedan there again. I have been running there about every 2-3 weeks for the last few months and the truck is so much better than it has ever been. In the past you would violently traction roll on one end and spin out on the other. The track is not like that now.

Nexus, thanks for the tips on the blades. Using a heat gun worked flawlessly.

BUMP.

I just got a small butane torch. Will try that for heating up the blades. It can localize the heat to a finer point, and its small to fit in a pit box with me to the track. I will see how it works and let everyone know.

When looking at a setup sheet, there is the two dots to mark for ackerman on the chassis (servo saver). when the dot is placed to the rear of the top plate, is that the servo saver location, or the tab on the plastic holder?


Next, I ordered the chassis weight set. I did get the middle and rear sets, still waiting on the fronts. Why are some not threaded? Is this in error? Can someone shed some light on this? Thanks. Thanks for any help on this.
