Hello

This is what i'm looking for, but please tell that they didn't fall into the easy way/Copying RC-monster of just doing a battery tray and a motor mount.

This simple design is good for a compagny with low budget (one or few man job), not for a large manufacturer

I hope they do work on a truly integrated battery, tray on a composite chassis for example.
At least Something on par with most up to date 1/10 scale Electric buggy

Does anyone have any clues what I should look for? or did this just happen from bad crashes, and all the cartwheels I do cause I cant drive?
I've heard the added weight from too much dirt in your screw heads will make the driveshafts bend because of the extra power needed, haha!

Just having a good time man! Sorry!

Oh and I posted two pages ago you should just spray some simple green on the bottom of the chassis so the dirt will jump out of the screw holes when shot with air. Just watch your eyes!!!

I try, sir.

I think I'm going to make an 808 FAQ thread and put the link in my signature so people can find any/all info when they go to that one thread... What do you guys think?

James, next time you see me at the track, take a look at my tuning guide. Its a must have for all drivers and I know plenty of factory guys at the pit (non Xray) that use that book. Its worth its weight in gold.

Thanks Wayne. I just downloaded all 40 pages, so I now have my own tuning guide. I think it will help tremendously, especially with the State championships coming, at all different track styles/sizes. R U coming to the Pit for round 1 Saturday?

So I have been looking over the setup sheets of the different Xray drivers from the worlds and it looks like quite a few (ok some) of the drivers ran the car with full droop?

I am wondering why? Seems like the car likes to have the droop limited. Just a question....hoping someone can shed a little light on the subject. Maybe driving style...

Thanks,

Chris

Check out this thread a retail customer made in XRAY's forum. This should let you know how they're holding up!
