HiH

I race on carpet with foams, the car is much more responsive with full rebound, no foam spacer in the shock and no holes in the cap.

They are Solaris wheels, i use them and they are great. Not to brittle and can handle a hit or two without cracking and they look great.

In Australia TOP racing stock that is my local stockist, you will have to find your where you live

They are not sets for certain cars but the price is good and they are pretty strong.

Tamiya sell the aluminum button and taper blue screws

I run the kit steel on the chassis but the blue alloy on the top deck and bulkheads

Forget part numbers but most of the online shops sell them

3x6, 3x8, 3x10

THanks for the feed back guys, if it was just me the yes but its not. Pullys are in good shape and one dot forward is not tight, the thing is that with the ball diff its no problem its the extra weight of the geardiff.

Also think mod with the new esc and software is challenging, weakness are starting to show.

I dont even go full tilt on our track as it has a few bumps because - know it will only tack 1-2 runs to kill the rear belt.

Outdrive blades are not cheap if you need to replace after 3 or 4 runs and if you dont replace in time the first run with them broken the outdrive gets a noch and thats it now you have to replace the outdrives.

Just thought there was somthing better out there that somebody was using. .
Thanks

Will try and scan today for you.
Just as an FYI, I ran my X last night and it feels quicker around corners. MUCH quicker without having to do a lot with the car as opposed to the 417.
