You might want to get a spare composite bumper bracket they seem to break pretty easily ,some spare c-hubs,also you might want to replace the m3x6 aluminum screws that hold the bulkheads to the chassis with titanium ones as the heads seem to strip out .On the spring kit you might want to hold off on that because xray makes 2 different spring kits $100+ for both,check out the tensions on the springs and you can buy them individually ,seems like everytime I buy a spring kit I end up only using half of the springs in the kit.you can get the best of both kits and pay what you would for one.just my 2 cents good luck with the new car they are insane.

I thought sway bars would have come in this kit,but I should never think. So I will order a chassie, diff, sway bars and spring kit hopefully that will get me on the track. Any more advice I will take
Tag - order some 6 degree front carriers too. You'll need them for carpet to settle down the steering. TC3 springs work, so you might not need to order all of the XRay's.

The XRay's a good car. I've been running one since January (first the Evo2 Freedom of Choice and a Factory Kit since May.) It's fast, and you'll feel the adjustments on the track.

If you have questions about the car and need another opinion, Tyler Keel knows how to get ahold of me here.

Good choice!

Rob

EDIT: Almost forgot - some people are using the new ackerman extension kit to offer some more stability for steering on carpet. Cheap (relatively so) and easy to install.

If you want those spiffy aluminum hubs, then plan on taking a month off to collect cans.

Tag- Good choice...Rob let me drive his car this past weekend at our local track and the thing was smoother than a Losi!! I was shocked! Rob had a weird "Rob Full Factory T1" setup on it, so I needed to get a chance to get used to it but man that car is sweet!

Anyways...to the point... Shoulda got a Losi IMO
