The shorter length changes the "plunge point" of the entire drive shaft and results in a car that transitions faster, especially noticeable on tracks with chicances.

Thanks Fred, Im assuming because there are more width options with them then with the 52's. I just wasnt sure if they would go into the outdrive cup on the spool far enough to keep from breaking them really easy. Thanks!

50mm ECS ..

If your running 2mm+ shims on the bulkheads and using the plastic outdrives, IMO you'll most likely break them as the pin on the driveshaft does not sit far enough into the cup. I've seen them break with 1.5mm shims on the bulkheads as well but less often.

The cheapest option for you is to shim out the outdrive by putting a washer in between the outdrive and where it connects to the spool. You'll need to grind the washer into a square-ish shape as so that it will fit into the spool part.

Of course you can also get aluminum outdrives that use blades.

just to contribute: I currently use the 50mm ECS and at one point, broke the pins. Instead of buying flat pins or any other kind, i cut from an old xray stabilizer (hard) and used it as replacement and had no issue since

Alumn turnbuckles are 4mm. The smaller spring steel ones are 3mm.

I have been running the 52's in front as well as the rear....no wonder why it seems a little lazy on a tighter track...Would you run 50 in the front as well as the rear, or only in the front to make it transition faster?

Thanks

Dialed! I wonder if the holes in the caps are large enough to fit XRay mounting hardware without modification?

I've had to replace my bladders due to swelling or tears in the XRay shocks on every rebuild. That's $10-12 to rebuild shocks.

Run 52's in the rear for stability and 50's in the front for a more aggressive feel!

No doubt... I am sick of buying bladders!

Looks like Tamiya plastic on the top of the shock and Xray on the bottom that connects to the arm...
