The post was not for Jeff.777 which is why I quoted the clutch asking for it.

Another question. I bought some aka tires when I ordered the car as well. But I noticed they are for the Damm Evo wheels. Is it possible to use them on the stock xray wheel?

KC,

Aka makes a band that you can use to glue them to regular rims. http://www.amain.com/rc-cars/aka-rac...a33023/p300015

Sweet!!!! Got to like that news my friend. I would keep it as a spare.
Glad it got you thru your last race of the indoor season my friend.

How did you do in the race?

Have an excellent week my friend. Oh! I hope to make it out your way soon thus looking forward to running at your indoor facility as well as checking out any outdoor tracks.

I just broke my rear bulkhead in a seemingly mild crash. Is there a good way to reinforce them? I seems like maybe the shock tower is digging in during a crash and stressing everything below it. Does anyone have a good trick to get the shock towers to slide instead of anchor into the dirt?

Innovative's indoor track will be going to an oval for the summer in a few weeks we just got done with the winter points series, so its just open practice till they get the outdoor ready, then the jumps will disappear.

Some people over here run shock tower protectors to stop towers digging in, some are quite fancy custom made things, but some are simply old wings cut up & bolted on.

Here's one a friend of mine makes.

Only 1 time I have broken a rear bulkhead, in the last year. I moved the shocks to the rear of the arms, snapped it right away..

I ran a 33/75 slipper at stock nats.. Aj ran a 28 or 29 /78 gear diff.

Not getting much bigger, if any in there.
