I tried to post it up here a while back and the file is to big and I'm not computer literate enough to compress it.

So JR did you break the front bulkhead in the crash then or the front diff cover the keeps the diff in the bulkhead? In just curious. I've broken bulkheads but not the front cover peice before.
Luckily no. I had the v3 and that was the reason I sold it. I broke 3 or 4 bulkheads. Two of them on the same race. Only think broke on my v5 was the left a-arm, hinge pin and the shock cap. The FR hinge pin holder has damage but I think it will hold the pin just fine or at least I hope. The rear diff holder I think is unrelated to that crash; but it did broke.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

I don't race a lot of dusty tracks, but if I was going to take a guess at it I would run the stock setup but would run 7000 front diff, and 7000 or 5000 for the rear. On shock oil I'd probably run 35 in the front and 30 in the rear with 1.6 x 2 Pistons in the front and 1.7 X 2 Pistons in the rear. Just a place to start. I'd also run it in the short setup.

No diff holder I've seen yet. Hopefully soon. I haven't had any issues with the rear hoop yet so hopefully I just got some good ones.

Raced this weekend and the car was just great except from snapping a front axle within 1 minute of practice time... Once replaced for a "loaner front axle" the car felt ok during the heats... I made a few changes and the car just completely changed. Bumped from "D" main to "C" and was 1 second from bumping to the "B". Got caught at the line at 23 6:00. Im sure that If I would of had the car setup right from the beginning I would of finish mid of "B" main or even "A" main. I had the car set up for carpet tho. Very pleased with performance. Also was the first time racing this car on dirt.

I agree on the parts tree thing. They really need to take a look at how they are doing this with parts. not everything needs to be on a parts tree. Heck, the Intech guys at least for the lower shock eyes use the same eyelet end and they don't come on part trees.

Mine is still waiting repair but the race I am going to go to on July 23rd I am hoping to see a wheeler class as its the same place where in the winter we ran wheelers. If not, I may just build the wheeler up to be specific for winter season.

Any more news on the exotek rear wing mounts?
Cain,

You obviously don't know how plastic parts work.

Of course you could have someone pull the inidividual part off the tree and package it separately. BUT it would still cost the same as if you were packaging the whole parts tree, because you're still injecting the same mould.

So what would you rather have? A single part for 10$, or the whole parts tree for 10$?

How hard was the hit to snap a axle ? I'm trying to find out what parts I need to keep in the box. And for the parts tree eh I have mixed feelings about that. Only thing I did notice was one of the ball cups was broke off the tree so I need to order a set. Sure I could email them and they would fix it

That's what's weird. I didn't hit anything, I was giving it throttle and heard a crack/pop noise and there it was... broken front right axle. It broke where the pin goes though andt joins the axle and the shaft. (ill try to post a picture tonight) I ordered 2 from amain. Never had this happened before... I guess there always a first time.

Actually you must not have read much on what I stated.

The Intech part which is a plastic part has what i wanted for less than what the tree cost, with more specific parts I needed, and not on a tree.

Funny how that works huh?

It doesn't help me to pay $10 for a parts tree when the part I need is only on the tree at best twice and even has parts on the tree that I don't need or are even for the vehicle itself.

That gets me fired up too. Buying a parts tree that has parts for other cars I don't even own... They could separate parts, and save and recycle the excess plastic and save a few pennies. Some trees have more plastic into the molding channels than in the actual part anyways, some having i.e. 1oz of total plastic and 18gr of that is waste. I get that the molds are expensive and/or labor but come on. They could have improve in the last 5 or 6 years with the same complaints.... just saying.

I don't know what Intech has done, maybe they made a very small mold. But that's not cost effective. The point is, they can't make the part individually, so the cost is the same whether you're packaging only the part that you want or all of them.
