I may have a spare or two if you are heading to Innovative today?

I don't know about him but I bought the Exotek 12mm rear and 9.5mm B44.2 frt hexes they have made for the XB4 and then run the Evo wheels made for the B44. You can also get the the 12mm frt hexes they make for the XB4 and run Kyosho front Evo wheels.

Put avid pistons in yesterday then turned the shock bottoms out two turns. Broke my frnt diff outdrive in half. Is this due to tge two turns out did?

Maybe hudy steel is not as strong as we think, 36 bux for two outdrives is a lil extreme
DANG!!!!

Yes, the two turns was too much - you gave it too much droop and it broke your diff outdrives.

Thanks Tijuana.

I did read about them awhile ago saying that they will be doing some. I must of missed the post about them being available.

I had an experience somewhat like this and the culprit was a bad bearing on the slipper hub. Easy fix after ordering an avid bearing kit Only failure I've had so far with the car in probably around 20-30 packs.

really no easy way to replace it unless you have a drive shaft pin removal tool. I tried removing them with an arbor press and only got 1 out

this is what you will need:

#106000 Hudy drive pin replacement tool
#106051 Hudy drive pins
purchase a small sledge hammer from harbor freight

The Mugen tool works very well! And is about half the price of the Hudy!
