Ahhh, Well I hope you get better soon man

His car drove AWESOME! It had a ton of steering, and yet it wasnt twitchy, and it had alot of traction, It was really easy to drive... IDK on the norcal thing, never been there, dont plan to soon lol, I dont want to sit in the car that long

More like throw the xray in the trash, so you can buy the updated version a month after the new one just came out

The xray looks nice, but no.....

I assume tower should be alright if they have them in stock.
There are two types of diffs, the cheaper cyclone S ones and the more expensive delrin ones.

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXNZH7&P=7
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXPLV0&P=7

The cheaper one has a tendency to have the post in the centre snap off and is softer.
Also if you get the cheaper one dig out the molding marks on the face where the D ring sits (otherwise the D ring doesnt sit flush on the outdrive).

Actually they only have the more expensive delrin in stock by the looks of it.

You can also try stormer which is a little cheaper before postage is added, although they are also out of stock of the cheaper Cyclone S outdrives

Did you know HPI offers a "high traction" suspension arm set for the cyclone?!

HPI31420 includes 2 front arms and 2 rear arms for $9!

SWEET!
