Yes, they're just as good as the Xrays. The ones that come with the front hub carriers can also be used for the stock steering rack

Dose anybody know what brands make sway bars that are thicker than the stock black and still fit well? I noticed that Ronnefalk was running a much thicker silver one on the front at that worlds.

Default Help ! 10mm ball stud doesn't seem to exist

Need some help! Had a minor cartwheel today and broke the carbon fiber rear inner ballstud mount. Lesson learned, will stick with the stock metal piece. However, I bent the 10mm ball stud in the process. The part number is HBS112983, but it doesn't exist anywhere! Not on AMain, Tower, Stormer, Losi Parts House, AbsoluteHobbyz, eBay or even a Google search. I have no idea why that part doesn't seem to exist. Does anyone know where I can buy it, or perhaps another brand that will work? HPI lists the dimensions as 4.8x5x10mm. I use a 2mm washer under that ball stud so it needs to be the 10mm version. I can find the 8 mm version on AMain and Tower. It looks like AE makes a 10mm metric ball students for the TC3 cars, would that work?

Great question. Would love to know as well, also related it seems the entire setup (ball ends/cups etc.) looks much different than stock to accommodate the beefier sway bar.

RENOV8R speaks the truth here. You want to minimize slop, try this.

What brand of wheel do the spare hexes that come in the kit fit? I thought they were B44 but the hexes are too big. All the other HB drivers in my area seem to have run into the same problem. Anyone else have similar issues?

An 8.5 should be more than enough for a small track.

Actually looks a lot like either the D815 swaybar or an associated setup.

Does anyone know ballstuds with long threads? When I was driving with 4mm spacers in front links, inner stud ripped off from the gearbox. So I would need ballstuds with longer threads for more secure.(originals are 15mm?)

From RENOV8R a few pages back.

Exotek Part # 1535

Xray Part # XRA362290

Yes used on the front hubs and/or stock ackerman bar. I used 4 in total for D413 C-hub.
