When I read and read and read forums about xb9, all the time I read that people are making a lot mod or using another brand parts in its xb9 shocks. springs, piston, something like that
I recently switch from mugen to xb9, I am really happy with the car, but only have run it once.
of course I need to work with my suspension set up, I used the stock set up.
Now Should I be Worry?
I dont want to spent time and money making mod,off course I can drill original piston etc, but I would like run my Xb9 pure xray machine, I just have purchased all springs (808) available, I did not test all yet and I am waiting for the new ones
My Question in this Official Forum is SHOULD I BE WORRY?
Any advice from official Drivers?
how the Xb9 should feel on the pit table?
Thanks in advance
I wouldn't be worried about the various shock set-ups. There's a lot of options out there. The Pistons are a big deal and a fairly cheap mod. The machined pistons from AE, Serpent, or others that are made for either of those seem to fit the shock better. The blow by on the stock pistons is one thing but my biggest concern was the shaft had a lot of wobble with the stock pistons and I feared premature wear on the orings and shaft guides.
I think the wide range of springs xray has should be fine and they fit the shocks the best. I ran kyosho springs the first couple times I ran the car and I just don't like how they rub the shock bodies and dont' fit well in the spring cups.
As far as using other mfg's bits and pieces to make a car better should not be a worry. Their is no perfect car out there, most cars have a couple things that could be improved and somethings you can improve by using a different mfg's piece.
I've had only a couple of races with my XB9, still working on finding the optimum setup on everything but overall the cars has been good.
