What motor is mike running? 35+21 or flash special? It won't be long until mike resets the track record!!!! Ralphs driving style is so smooth that the car almost looks slow on the track until you check the laptimes and you say to your self this guy is blazing!!!!!

Finally somebody said it:

"Many times I get asked why we donít replace some of the composite parts with aluminum parts like other manufacturers do. At first I answered that usually the reason why other manufacturers change to aluminum is that for the given quantity the RC market is able to use it is cheaper to produce aluminum parts than to invest heavily into moulds. Moulds still require ongoing updates when the design changes over the years so in many cases it is cheaper to produce the parts in aluminum than in composite. And secondly Ė in the end the composite parts are (in some applications) much better performing which is the reason we went for composite parts even if it is a bit more expensive.

A typical example would be aluminum bulkheads. It may look fashionable that nitro on-road cars recently use mostly aluminum bulkheads, but in my own opinion it is primarly the cost reason. I have used aluminum bulkheads at my 1/8 on-road cars 27 (!) years ago and have the knowledge and experience to compare it. Back in the years I used aluminum bulkheads when I first started to use fully-independent suspension. Because the alu bulkheads were mounted to the aluminum chassis the vibrations were rippling through the entire car; screws without threadlock fall out and vibrations also had negative influences on the engine. At those times I made a quick fix using composite inserts between chassis and alu bulkheads to stop the vibrations. And ball-bearings were simply not working properly if they are inserted in the aluminum directly. "

If you do run this picture through Photoshop, upscale it first to the dubble resolution and then play with the brightness and contrast you will see more from this picture. The design of the front urights looks like MRX4

Interesting was the design of the rear bulkhead of another picture in this column, it does look the same as the MRX4 bulkhead.....

One thing I like about Xray cars : It's because the owner of the company (juraj hudy) get involved during the car development. He put efforts, knowledges, and expertises, in the car that he wants to sell. This kind labour of love is the strength of xray cars. Don't you agree ?

And i also quote from the column

"I made this mistake already with the 1/12 pan car which we were working on for several years using a completely different design, in which the tests were still negative so there was no other choice than to scrap everything and to start from square one with a proven platform. With RX8 I did not want to make the same mistake and moreover I had already 30 years of experience with 1/8 on-road cars platform and clearly knew what we could not do and what we needed to do."

Could be, since the MRX4 and Kyosho is a proven platform in composite materials. Cannot wait to see the real thing.
