Very, very clean looking XXXSG+ ChristopherKee. Blue bellcranks? Who makes them? I'll post some pics of my new XXXSG+ if I ever get it together, it's all laced with stainless steel screws, 2.5mm washers, lunsford quick-tune shock mounts, and a few other tricks. I should have it together by the end of this weekend.

ChrtsopherKee-I would highly recommend you dremel your upper front bumper brace per my picture a couple pages back. It'll definately save you a shock shaft-or at least from popping the shock off the ball end-which kills the cars handling!!!

Oh-yeah-nice build job-Very clean!!!

They look like Fastrax bellcranks, I've got some on my XXX-S. I've also got a stainless screw set, when it rolls the bottom of the chassis looks much better

Actually, I just use a thick fat foam bumper.. I took it off for the picture just for looks... But yah.. I have a good collection of broken shafts till I moved the top brace higher (it's a real thick bumper)

KO Racer -

As you can see... your Speedo has a good home it fits perfect and I still have the same wire you put on... I'm glad you flaked off all the blue.. I like the look better.

proudwinner -

Those are fastraxx... I purchased them off eBay from serpentvector. Same with the blue motor brace.


Another good thing to get not pictured is TK1801's they are outdrive alumi savers.. they look sweet. I was just to lazy to put them on...

ChristopherKee -

First off - great lookin car!! I definately like the blue bell cranks! As for the Quick change shock mounts... did you thread a screw in from both sides?

But regarding your comment about the outdrive savers... you will not need them, even if they look cool, especially running stock... to be quite honest, that is one piece on the car that I have never broken... and the car has taken some abuse (well, my older one anyway)

I race all classes... And I have managed to break 2 front outdrives in the last month. That's what prompted me to purchase the outdrive saver... Last crash I boke the shock tower, A arm, outdrive, shock shaft, and carrier... When I hit something I hit something .... hehe

The Trinity shock bushings are already threaded when you purchase them. As long as they are the buggy or truck ones.
