O-rings last FOREVER and that is the best way to get them. I can't imagine why you would want different ones as they don't leak and hardly swell.

Plastics are the same.

I've bent my stock chassis and cannot decide should I get the stock or some aftermarker chassis (BCE..?).

How are those aftermarket parts compared to the stock one? I'm running mostly indoors tight med bite track.

Unless you've folded it up into a pretzel, you can bend it back. Just tweak it a little bit at a time until it's straight again. And be careful what you grab it with while bending it. If you put it in an unprotected vice or etc. you will put some ugly marks on it.

I just switched to an Orion VSTPRO 550 4.5 and so far its just barely slower than my Tekin Pro4 4600. I like the 550 because power band is way smoother.
I wish I moved to a 2 pole sooner. Hopefully it will show this weekend at the Hot Rod Hobbies Shootout.

As far as I know the BCE isn't available anymore since Bill passed away. Best chassis available IMO. I would just get another stock chassis if you can't salvage yours. Or you might get lucky and find a BCE for sale.

Thanks. I had an o-ring swell a few months ago, probably from the electrical cleaner I use to clean shocks when rebuilding them. Just wanted to pick up some more in case of an emergency.

There's nothing really "needed". However, if you are a bit OCD about slop it is fantastic. It helps reduce a bit of out drive and axle wear too. I love it.

Yeah I would not recommend electrical cleaner to clear out the shocks. I typically just wipe dirt off the bottom of the shock caps and then just drain the old only and pour in new oil. If you are going to spray out your shocks take the o-ring stack out then spray out your shock bodies and reassemble the shocks.

Bought a set of the Green beadlock rings for my other set of rims which came in the kit, i was disappointed to find they are painted, so the first time you touch a pipe or a wall they will get scratched and look crap, I should have bought white ones and dyed them myself
