Yepp, no need to use Exotech alu cups on the driveshafts... But this is not enough proof for BentKa that Martin Bayer uses it i presume...

I can't confirm it, but looking at it from the back, is Martin Bayer running a new rear shock tower with an additional row of camber link mounting points, a la DMS Partz rear shock tower?

Hi Anders

We're sitting right next to him here at the EOS.

Him, Juraj and Reno are using matching collars, countersunk washers etc in Xray orange.

Funny stuff is none of the other drivers here (including his brother) is using them.

Watch out for pins flying though

*Sarcasm off*

On another note......they are changing pins in the driveshafts though......you know that marketing hype you're not falling for.......

Now get out and race Anders.......see you at the Nordics or Europeans this year ?!?!?!???

Bent

Just took an extra look and asked him......he's running stock towers front and rear on both 2WD and 4WD

Yes it will hit the tire. I cut out mine to minimize the rub but it still does it a little. I also did put a couple of lexan "spacer" under the wing to give it more clearance.

Well there ya go, my eyes deceived me.

The EOS 4WD finals were awesome, nice 2nd place for Martin Bayer & 8th place for Renaud Savoya - good job Xray!

Yep. Hate to say it but after just a few runs the first day the pin on the center drive shaft of my xb4 2wd was coming through. I prefer to eliminate the chance of tgis happening again by using an aluminum collar.

Ran my buggy in today's points race. 3 qualifiers and a main. Qualified third, and finished second. Couple dumb mistakes kept me out of first place. I'm really enjoying this buggy. It fits my style.
