Was looking for what others may have done? I currently have a huge stock of B5/B6 rear wheels, would be nice to be able to leverage those if possible.

Any real help would be appreciated...
I think you can find this one the 1st page of this post. I went with exotek and saved have the cost of the xray ones. i think it was 7mm rear and 9.5 front for ae wheels and 9mm for losi wheels

Any other options for turnbuckle ball joints? I have had the turnbuckle come out twice when landing. I did land a little awkward though . Just looking for something stronger.

Thank you for the information, very helpful!

Do I need to change the axle pins for the smaller hex or do the standard ones work with the 12mm hex?

Thanks

Xray seems to like dropping hints via Instagram. So far, I only see the XB2 and XBT in the pipeline.

Not needed at all. They take some traction away. Less flex. Try them for yourself and see if they fit what you like.

I personally like them alot as you can put any spacer of your choice under the ballstud. I feel like they actually give more traction but maybe because thats my driving style and the setup I have as I run 5mm spacer.
