i've used the carbon plate also. i got a mtx4 cover and reciver holder and drilled the required hole in the carbon and mounted the mtx4 reciever holder/cover to the carbonfibre. sort of fits a bit tight, but still ok. you need to use a few shims (i used the tank lowering shims) to make the CF brace sit right.

Sam, thanks for the advice. But if you are not suppose to put the loc tite on the plastic to metal, how do you fix the problem of the screws coming loose. I ran my car for the first time last Saturday, and I noticed the car would jult to the right. After inspecting the car, I noticed the rear tow was not even anymore, i.e. I had to screw in one of the pivot balls. I chalked it up to the hard practicing. But now I think it may just have come unscrewed by itself. If you are not suppose to put the loc tight on the screws, what do you do to fix this problem? Seems like it would be hard to drive in a long main.

I use a small dab of shoe goo to lock the pivot ball alum adjustment nut in place. If I need to disassemble any of them during race day, I use a small dab of CA, since it sets quicker than shoe goo. The CA and shoe goo will come off easy enough without damaging anything.

Xray recommends 'Blue Threadlock' here (http://forum.teamxray.com/viewtopic.php?t=5351)

They do not mention loctite by name though. There may be other kinds of blue thread lock. I thought Tamiya made something for metal on plastics. I wonder if white glue would work just as well.

thanks, by the way, do you run your car with the receiver cover/box?

You can also measure the thread part of the pivot ball and measure the ball part. Just usa one of the competing brands that is the same on the ball part, but larger on the thread part. You can even possible go bigger on the ball part, but I am not sure, as I do not use this car.

No. I shoe goo'd the spektrum receiver to the side of the throttle servo.

I'm not a factory driver per se. I work for XRAY HQ on their Customer Support Team. Some factory driver perks, but none of their skill or glory.

Default New Mod Bumper

Check out this bumper on my NT1. I can't take credit for though. A friend made for me. Cool!

Uncut, the standard bumper is a little thick. The upper bumper plate presses down on the foam and causes the front body posts to tilt inward a bit. Taking a sharp hobby knife and cutting out the upper plate shape to about 1~2 mm deep, then placing the plate on top gives the plate a perfect fit for the bumper.

To toughen the bumper, after you've carved it a bit, take a lighter and singe the bumper a bit. WARNING!!! Don't overdo the lighter or you'll be needing a new bumper.
