What can i do to make the car finish turns better off power. I'm happy with the way it turns in it just doesn't finish the turn off to well and seems to push a bit. Any help would be great

in most corners you should already be on power on corner exit, are you talking about how the car reacts to transient throttle mid to exit?

I just solved the underweight problem I have with my car.
When I added some parts (LW brakeadapter, first and second gear adaptor) and the capricorn diff internals my car dropped from 1536 to 1496.

But someone on the Xray T3 topic posted a link to a shop which sells Tungsten weights for RC cars.

So I ordered 11 ounces of it straight away.
I ordered 1 set of ''underbody weights' and 2 sets of 1/4'' cubes.

This is the site where i ordered them:

http://www.maximum-velocity.com/spee...s.htm#tungsten

Hope they arrive soon, will post some pics when I got them in and mounted.
I will cut away the sides of the Brass Lipo tray I already have and glue the cubes behind the Lipo, just in front of the tank.
The plates will be used underneath the battery, and for side to side balancing.

Wow ! You mean 100 grams under weight with body on ! Am I right ?
You'll need some engineering to put all that weight back...LOL

200 gr. under weight with body on, the 1496 includes the body.

But with the Tungsten it is going to be pretty easy to get the car back up to weight.
The density of Tungsten is 1.7x greater as Lead, and more as 2 times as the density of brass.
The entire weight I will need to add will fit under the battery and on the battery tray between the tank and battery.

With the body on ! Impressive.
Remember you can play with about 30 grams adding Xray hard bumper and plastic support...changing the car's steering.

Got the Tungsten weights in, and they are just perfect.
Weighted all the components and the car comes in at 1701 grams
The only thing I have to do is glue all the cubes together and fix them to the car with some double-sided tape.
It all fits below the 4mm lowered fueltank.
Also have some shots from the adjustable wheelbase which was requested.
