Not sure what it is, can be anything, even at the engine side. I think Xray does know how to make a clutch working flauwless out of the box...

from what i saw in my country, the clutch was dusting a lot.
2 sponsored drivers got radio interference when they got the pre-shipment cars to test, crashed in 5 laps, same as mrx5.
front bulk heads were ripped off.
the latest shipment, the package comes with the nt1 throttle and brake linkage.

Well guys, what do you think after qualifying?

Capricorn P3 - Xray P20

Can Capricorn claim the 'baddest 1/8 available' or do you guys want to wait after the final?. j/k

Dont think you can claim that considering there are 2 Mugens in front of the capricorn.

However this is the Xray thread so that is all i am going to say.

Already available in Thailand. Surikarn C. and other thai drivers tested it. Sounds to work really good and no clutch trouble at all.

Clutch is the problem, the material is suspect. they had one clutch disk explode while on the starter box. I have heard this is the same reason that has kept them from finishing a qualifier, the clutch disk comes apart

Wonder where they got the clutch material?

even the quals they finished were not fast enough to make a semi. Somethings up with the handling too. Don't seem to have the corner speed.

Mr Hudy should spend less time writing about world domination and his engineering brillance, and more time working on fixing clutch
