Today we will be looking at the Xpress XQ1 in depth. It
Tough and precise-cut motor mount.
It will be a good idea to apply some oil before putting the set screw in place as the plastic is hard and it would be a tight fit
When you put the gear holder on the chassis, it feels great!
This is pure art
Perfect fit, requires no extra alternation
A very strong servo mount
Arm mount consists of the same plastic holder as Xray
Check out the rear arm mount
The same plastic holder as Xray
FF is narrow and RR is wide
If the C hub isn’t the perfect size, you can use a hairdryer and heat it up for 3-5 mins, then let it cool down
It should turn back into 21mm and fit the steering block. It should not be a problem for most people
Front arm is always smoother if you sand it down a little
Arm Pin (42mm)x4
Front universal joints are smooth and fit, but the pin seems a little too small to fit the front pool
Steering arm is combined with two parts. The join is strong and fits nicely and it doesn’t seem to be fragile at all!
Front steering tips – Don’t screw it too tight
Rear universal joint
Damper mount and camber link mount look great. The camber link is also very easy to adjust
Driver tips – Swap the position of the front and rear camber and add 1mm o-ring to the front camber. Entering corner will become more aggressive.
Feel free to try standard first.
Servo mount tips – Use 3×5 at the front of the screw
Add 1.5mm o-ring to the steering block and steering link
Add 2.5mm to the steering link and steering arm
Add 2mm o-ring to the front camber link block but don’t add any o-ring to the C hub
Ball end is hard and smooth
Central pulley (20T) and spur gear holder. Spur Gear is perfect fit and easy to adjust.
Spool and pulley (38T)
Gear differential (38T) same as Xray
The piston fits perfectly to the damper body.
Driver tips, use 4-hole piston and about 500cst to start the test drive.
Servo mount set – Simple and efficient. Make sure you use a short screw (3x5mm) for the front at the holder. Place the battery holder on the right and check your servo size.
Front arm assemble – It would be better to have a 2mm o-ring at the front of the A arm. Change the steering arm o-ring from 2.5mm to 1.5mm or less will be enough
Anti roll bar – Easy for balanced set up.
Install one ball bearing first. Then the roll bar and followed by the other ball bearing.
You will need a 2mm ball screw drive to change the gear
Yokomo bumper fits xpress as well
Rear left and right toe are the same
