XRAY T3 - 2012 EU Rubber-Spec Competition 1/10 Electric Touring Car
Easy to assemble, though some steps in the manual needs to be updated. Great handling and Chassis flex. The main drawback is the gear differential. You cannot drive the car with the gear differential without cutting rear belts almost every 2 batteries run. Solution is to replace gear diff. with ball diff. Other than that it is the best !!!!

XRAY T3 - 2012 EU Rubber-Spec Competition 1/10 Electric Touring Car
Assembly was quick and easy, all the parts are made of quality material and no modifications were necessary to get the parts to fit properly! Just waiting for motor and speed control to come in and should be ready to hit the asphalt. Will be running Mamba Pro ESC w/Neu 5700kv motor, topping it off with a Protoform DNA2 body, with this set up it should make this racer rip around our asphalt track(parking lot). Will let you know how it performs!
