Thank you.
To get the 12 chassis to fit you will need to either get the 12 steering system or re drill the 11 arm to allow the steering turnbuckle to fit with the servo in the new position

Found out that the front Hudy steel driveshafts are bent I do not understand why would this happen (and why it shouldn't happen with new ones), since the car had little run time in it (and never crashed with it). Also, can T1 driveshafts be used and is this advisable (they are 51 mm but thinner)?

Please remember that the Exotek units are heavy duty in design in that they are made of 7075 and has a thicker center section. A known issue for weaker Tamiya designs is bending the blocks at the center section. The Exotek parts also offer more tuning options (width, sweep) and also offer FRP rectangle shims to raise the blocks.

We have a group of Xray Team drivers who will be at the upcoming Reedy Race who will be providing set up info for everyone soon as well.

The T1 driveshafts do not fit the T2/3 style drive axles.

Dear Exotek,

Please make something like the Tamiya ECS that will fit the XRay. Thanks!

Yeah, they seem to get twisted a bit sometimes. I've replaced 3 so far. Only on my one car that has Nikita outdrives though. My other car hasn't bent one yet, but I'm still using the kit composite outdrives on that car. Maybe the extra give in the composite outdrives has kept the cvds from bending??

Which outdrives are you using?

I'm using kit composite outdrives at the moment, used R1Wurks aluminium outdrives for some time but switched back to kit ones to look for differences. Are you using 50 or 52 mm? I'm using 52 mm all round, thinking of trying 50 mm this time... Anyone else have these problems?

I'm using 52mm. I might try 50mm as well, but I'm not confident it will make much difference. They seem to just be twisting, so I wouldn't think the length would matter much.

They will make a change, do you mean the driveshaft actually twists?

yeah, if you look at a new one, the pin on the one end lines up straight with the hole on the other end. I've had a few twist so the pin end is at about a 45 degree angle compared to the other end and you can see where it says "Hudy spring steel 52mm" is no longer perfectly straight, but the text sort of warps around.

That is deformation at it's highest. As someone who has always and only raced Xrays, I'm not very satisfied with this product at the moment....

How much do you run your T3 12, what motor do you use?
