It was and Microsoft blogged about the blackout. I've heard from others who have tried the service that we're still waiting on refunds on orders not placed on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Glad to hear you weren't one of those with a problem.

The tires I use depend on how much weight I have to add to the car.

My Car's setup:
808, Max C5Q (drilled heatsink) w/ Sirio 2013, AKA Gridirons, Unregulated 1500mAh 2S lipo, aluminum turnbuckles oh yeah!, aluminum pivot balls, aluminum axles, aluminum hinge pin holders, aluminum c-hubs, stock engine mount, graphite front upper plate, stock middle diff plate, aluminum shock nuts and aluminum lock-nuts where I can.
Unregulated with Lipo,.. and all that aluminum...!

Nice! That thing must fly like a jet! LOL!

Every aluminum piece I chose was either the same or less weight than the plastic or steel it replaced. I weighed EVERYTHING, haha.

What a stupid Video! Would have been nice if they filmed the actual crashes!!

Thanks for posting it, I got so annoyed I turned it off. Why would they bother showing "Testing" without how bad the crashes, and cartwheels are so other people who don't own XRAY can see what a beating this buggy takes? Stupid

I agree... I'm not sure Xray was filming the video, but It would have been nice to see the end result of each crash.....

Def not XRAY. The website that's hosting (probably made the video) is in Greece...

I need to get that soundtrack!

You neglected the most important part... how much lighter your wallet will be if you buy all of those parts at list price!
