Bren,

Are you in Pattaya? Anything interesting to share with us?

So the toe block is longer and the arm shorter?

whats the cut out in the side mud guard for?

He probably cutout the side guard to give more clearance to the servo, I have to lift my servo slightly to clear the side guard... No biggie...

I believe they are testing a lower servo mount position to lower CofG..hence the cut out for the edge of higher power servo's which are taller.Personally that's not a position I'd like to put my expensive servo's in.More chance of a direct hit or water getting in.I'm sure my driving won't get any better cause my servo's are 1 or 2 mm lower

Not sure what difference the shorter arms would make to the handling etc but i do like the idea of the longer toe/anti-dive blocks giving more mud clearance between the wishbone and the diff housing.I'm forever picking crap outta there between races.It's worse at the front though and I don't see any changes there in the photos.

yeah if you run at a track that has the slightest rock sticking up and a direct hit to that servo could be a problem I doubt if they have that problem there thou

unfortunately not in Pattaya but wish i was as track looks a blast technical & very rewarding when you get it right.

Things to share in bits you have seen & talking abought here are tweaks & refignments to what you saw on my car a month or so back. The guys at the worlds would of recieved a pack of parts which I also recieved which all look very smart. You have all seen Juraj's car pictures posted & a tweak to the drive train which is what many have wished for & gives options.
Although the hubs etc that i had originally proved reliable the new parts are beefed up in the right places so durability will never be a problem.

The new front hubs will give more steering but dont fret if you think your current car has enough, it produces more where you need it & as a usable product so just compliments the car more.

The rear end & wishbones helps in cornering, bumps & landing again just little tweaks.

All in all hitting the points where the car often struggled.

There are various other points but i wont let on, its more fun to just sit back & see what you all come up with here..

Bren,

Thanks for the update! Knowing XRAY, I bet the upcoming 2011 spec will be even better!

We often curse the angle of the drive shaft relative to the center diff, I wonder how the Durango 408 does it? They move the center diff so far off the center line, the fuel tank is almost in the dead centerline of the chassis!

I don't think there is a need for the 808 to have a major revamp, improve its durability (pinion bearing, pinion bearing and pinion bearing), new drive train, SEALED bulkhead, stiffer chassis and adding a few option parts (to the kit will be golden...

Looks like Josh Wheeler is either running the mugen bulldog body or is using a new proline one soon to come out. Surikan C. was also running the white or gray colored boy below
