If you are talking about http://www.racing-cars.com/pp/New_Ca...4CXL/G884.html G884 Mark from Schumacher said there is no replacement parts for it. I bend 1 too and they are very soft metal compare to the stock one.

Run the tamiya servo saver if you're running indoors and you'll not bend a shaft again, well I haven't anyway lol.

Just installed the double joint shafts in mine. Few team setups and pictures I've seen recently have featured these shafts more.

I really like the true cv dcjs. They handle like a front gear diff, and keep the rip of the spool.

What's better for a medium carpet tight, course. The extra flex or medium flex castor blocks?

For anything on carpet you're generally going to want medium or stiffer. The XF's just flex way too much when grip is even marginally high.

Thanks. I kinda figured that I ran one race with them and they tended to grab pretty hard near the end of the corrner. I could probably carry more corrner speed with the medium ones also?

Most likely. If grip really starts to come up or you go to a high grip track you might even want to go with stiff hubs and arms. It will just make the car more consistent and less "springy".

Our track is about a medium grip track. So Im thinking like you said to stick with the medium ones for now. see how those work.

Default Mi4cxl

Hi

Just got a 2 hand mi4cxl , completly stock. What do i need to get ?. Have been looking trough this tread , but cant find a "need to get" list. I will be running on carpet , 17,5 blinky on sorex 28 on a tight track

Its the stock chassis and top plate , Do I need the 2mm soft weave chassis and the carpet top plate ?

Right now i have ball diff and spool , gear diff is the way ?

2 arm steering or just make the "martin hofer" change on the stock one?

The new chassis arm holder from the worlds , looks like all use them

And finally the alu arm holder , nearly all pictures use the stock one.

Looking forward to again race the schumacher car , has been away since 1994 when I drove the Cougar and bosscat in offroad

Thanks for your time

Best regards
Andy

Hi
The CXL comes with the 2mm softweave but I prefer to use the standard top deck but there are times when I use the flex or carpet.

The car is pretty much decked out but nice to have a set of narrow hexes.
Only a few parts for spares (not many needed the car is a tank)
Make sure to have extra:
inner hinge pins especially if using the aluminum blocks.
Shock rebuilds kit and a few spur gears (only Schuie can be used)
Diff/spool inserts (they wear down often)
And few of the normal stuff.

Cut yourself a heavy duty bumper.
And keep a lot of shims 1,2,2.5 mm for setting up
