Default SPARE PARTS

I am breaking up my old xray 008, and wanted to know if the 008 driveshafts, or indeed any parts can fit my photon. I particularly like the xray driveshafts, and if they are compatible I can save some cash on spare driveshafts

Let me know

Hanulec runs a complete Xray drive train in his car. I don't see a need for it but if you have the parts already you can use them up and then revert back to stock. See link for install tips.

the setup i'm using is based upon the 38 tooth xray pulleys. these pulleys were included with certain T2'008 EU models -- but not all of them. When these larger pulleys were used within the T2'008 you had a 2.375 internal gear ratio. i don't think the 'stock' EU drive shafts were 50mm though. Xray billed the 50mm shafts as 'foam' touring parts, and 52mm shafts as the 'rubber' parts.

The grub screw for the stabilizer bar ( in between the two flat screw ),how tight should it be? Will it make the car out of control if it's too tight?

You want the sway bar to pivot, so they are just there to take up slop, and not be tight as that stops them acting like a sway bar.
I do them up till just tight, then back off the grub screw a touch, as far as I know that is the right way to set them up.

That is correct, the sway bars must pivot freely. Unfortunately the Photon is not mistake-proof, and at least half of the cars we check have that set screw tight on the sway bar. That really screws up the cars handling

That's the reason why my car was uncontrollable ..
