Great review. I just spammed (in a polite way), some forums I am on with a link to it.

BTW: Lets just say some of your idea observations may bear fruit.

Oh, you can effect roll center (slightly) by putting small spacers under the upper wishbones where they attach to the gearbox.

EIDT: You might like this Jimmy per the last paragraph especially.

Thanks mini yeah sounds interesting - I know a lot of people over here prefer buggies and I'm the same - but yeah I was really happy with the Xray, it's rather nice quality!
You should have seen the battering it got at club racing and nothing broke

To be honest, I saw it and thought it was an a paid advertisement. I missed the mention of the review in the top left corner.

Great review as usual. It like the bit about making your own wing mount on that race day.

Too right it did. Totally transformed the car in the turn and mainly in the air!
Quite why Xray didn't include a propper rear wing is beyond me.

Mine will probably be up for grabs as the racing this winter is going to be.....lets say... a little limited, when the twins arrive!
