the aluminum lipo holders are dialed, I suggest a lil piece of fuel tubing on the ends of them if you have "east/west" play at all, I have no "north/south" play with the aluminum lipo pieces..

DIALED!

either. I'm running the 52s. you can run the 50s, but add a 1mm spacer between the adapter and the axel. running the 50s can cause the adapter to break because the ecs pin is not sitting far enough in the adapter. I went thru countless adapters until i read about this mod of the 1mm spacer, OR you can run the alum adapters and not worry about the plastic adapter breaking

I just got a set of nikita outdrives. Running fairly narrow, 1.5 spacers, 52mm ESC drive shafts and still have room in the outdrives to go narrower.

Also the large diameter is less wear and tear on the blades, have two races days on mine and the blades still look new.

Definitely a high quality product.

I started with the 700cst too. My friend runs 1000cst and last weekend I tried 2000cst. Works also but I must admit I didnt feel the difference because we were on a different track.

Jeez, how hard are you crashing I've done thousands of laps, had quite a few heavy hits, only ever broken or bent one thing on the Xray (rear hub carrier and that was only because a track fixing had come loose and caught the rear axle nut) never had a problem with the batteries moving or retainers bending.


Perhaps you guys need some better quailty tape?

I run 1000 or 2000 depending on track conditions, lighter makes the back end rotate faster, heavier calms it down.

BUT unless you put exactly the same amount of oil in the diff you may not notice any difference (too much thin oil make it feel thick, too little thick oil makes it feel thin)

Thanks for the picture of the fuel tubing on the battery brackets. That along with larger nylon nuts took all the battery movement out of the car.

These are another option...
