Zanesville. Not real competitive but alot of fun. Kevin (owner) is a great guy. I would say about 2 hours from Cinn? Not sure actually.

xray chassis is much stiffer than stock and the batteries have been moved forward and toward the center a little.when comparing to stock you will be amazed.it has absolutely no flex at all.everyone who has seen it was amazed.

Hey Jason,

Will you double check the NTC3 Rear mounting holes to see if they are exactly the same as the rear TC3 holes?

I have K-Factory aluminum rear mount and it will not fit the electric chassis. The mount holes are just a bit too wide.

Double check and let me know what you come up with.

Hi,

"Where's Y-city"

Any one have a web site or street address for the track?

The bmi xray is considerbly stiffer than the stock xray chassis, makes the car more consistent and you can feel the setup changes you make (caster, kickup, antisquat, camber, etc) better. Only one downfall, its a 1/2 ounce heaver which is worth it aka mine was underweight anyway

Is there any chance of enlarging the bulkhead cutouts in the chassis so we dont have to grind the bottom off the suspension pin mounts?

How much for a set of titanium shock towers for the xray, checked the website and could'nt find'em.

Thanks,
Brian

The nitro mounts are slightly wider than the electric chassis.

Guys I need help. My car was a rocket until I got a pair of Tamiya TRF shocks. Ever since my car has been a complete mess. I tried going up in oil and down. The car feels real inconsistant. loose almost all of the time and it turns in alot. I know alot of racers are using them but is there a trick to getting them to act like an associated shock? I was using a set of Yokomo shocks with Associated shafts and pistons. My only next idea is to see if I can use associated pistons in them. Below is my base setup.

Hey Jason,

Did you see my post about the rear pivot block?

Did you get a chassis cut today?
