I won't get one until I see an aluminum chassis as an option. I don't think XRay has had one since the 2019, maybe 2020 car. Until then, I will continue to race the 2018, it still wins races, lol.

What surface are you running on? It could be as simple as too much front compound and the rear compound wears off before the front. Also, check your outside edge of the rear tires to make sure they...

On your stock setup. What do you recommend if we don't have the PSS and the drilled pistons? What changes to the handling did that do? All the teams cars looked great. Good job.

He could be just monitoring the voltage to keep it close to 4.20. I do that in every stock class I race. Also, it is very rare for a lipo to blow just charging in the open. Heat is the enemy and...

Heck, from this statement, it looks like they are not even going to include the v2 parts in future kits, which I find hard to believe. Hope I am wrong.

I wouldn't say almost all tracks are asphalt in the US. It is mostly carpet everywhere but the coasts and southern states. But, Alex has a asphalt setup online you can try.

They are the same, sorry about that, lol. Use the traction compound to clean with, prior to saucing for the run. I should be more clearer anyway, lol.

Outside for the front is most important. I do the rears with a light coat to mainly not grab boards with bare rubber if I clip them. But, if the rear is a little too stuck, you can also get a little...

No problem. Depending on the level of traction, I would also look into getting the hard chassis, 371027. A lot of F1 on black carpet is tire prep also. That all depends on what your tire is.
