8) what options are availible for the M18t. I just got my truck from a online shop, my local hobby store here in New York is having trouble getting kits and parts. This seem to be common lately. Ordering from RCAMERICA seem to be a nightmare. Please help.

I've seen Parma do a buggy shell & wing for the RC18T which looks cool, but i don't think it would fit too well on an M18T.
Is there any chance Xray will make a buggy shell & wing set?

Bigb,

If your LHS has had problems obtaining product from RC America, please have them contact us by phone or email to let us know where the problems are occuring so we can correct the issue. It helps us if the dealers contact us directly to let us know of any issues they have. If they do not yet have a dealer account, please have them contact us to begin that process. We do have the M18T kits in stock and the parts are coming in right behind so we should be able to provide them with anything you need.

Bryan

So now that he Truck is out, can you shed any light on the delay?
They had mentioned that it would all make sense once released.
Just Curious.

8) RC AMERICA,

I AM A LOYAL XRAY OWNER AND THE PROBLEM WE HAVE WITH GETTING PARTS AND KITS HAVE BEEN ON GOING. OUR LOCAL SUPPLIER IS ERA AND THEY SAY CAN'T GET THE STUFF. WHEN I BUY I BUY TWO OF THE SAME KIT BECAUSE YOU CAN'T GET PARTS. I HAVE BEEN WAITING MONTHS FOR A T1FK'05. I TRIED TO BUY A KIT FROM YOUR WEBSITE AND IT DID NOT WORK. ALL WE WANT IS A FAIR CHANCE TO GET THE KITS.

BIGB

Bigb,

Were you able to register on the XShop to order the kit, or did you not receive the confirmation email after registration? I know there continues to be problems with AOL emails after AOL changed some of there spam protection a number of months ago. It prevented many people from emailing AOL accounts. We suffered the same problems from our RC America email server, and XRAY may still be having some issues from the XShop. I have spoken to a few people in the last few months that were unable to register. If that is the case please let us know. You can email us at info@RCAmerica.com.

Mine just got to me on saturday...I might try to get it assemble before the ECC...If not, my "trusty" RC18T will be running...

Just curious when new drive shafts will become available...as well as wheels...the keyed truck rims kinda stink - it forces you to only use xray rims....

I got to race my 18T for the first time last night. All I can say it is much easier to drive than my Associated 18T. It handles great and is so easy to jump. I am very, pleased with this Xray. Ran it on a carpet track with Losi Street Meats.

They broke? I made limiters for the steering to help prevent popping universal when "bumping" the wall. Can't wait for the Xray CVDs!

HITEC HS-56HB servo saver does not fit the ones supplied with the Kit. Also the AE RC18T servo will not fit.

Tried to contact XRAY directly.

They recommend I contact HITEC. What would HITEC do. Wouldn't xray know what kind of servos fit the car they designed as a kit.

The next thing they recommend is I buy the xray micro servo. Where can I find that thing. Isn't this a Kit. Xray if you push those ideas why sell this as a KIT.......

I would have appreciated it if you whoever you are would have simply stated the type of servo I can use. The box and instructions clearly state I need a micro servo. To me this seems to be misleading the rc consumers.

I will take the unidentified servo savers to my local hobby shop to see what fits and buy a servo. I've taken my time assembling this kit and selecting my equipement. To get stuck at this last point is frustrating considering the manufacture should supply the servo's for other makes. Oh well my lost.

My first xray. Not really impressed. AE would send me a servo saver or something. Who knows xray still might if its fairly resonable.. I'm always optimistic.

xray wanted me to post this information in hopes that other xray drivers will particapte?

FYI

The "H" fits the hitech HS81MG (which, I believe, is what the xray servo really is)...

The "F" fits futaba - but not the futaba with the "mini" output gear - if also fits the BlueBird 380MAX-MG servo

There are no "A" (Airtronics) servo savers in the kit - which is why the AE servo didn't work...BUT you could try using the Airtronics servo saver that was released for teh Mini-T - I've had that on the stock AE servo before and it worked :)
