these are the std pro 4 style arms, but made of a softer plastic instead of carbon plastic, to me the plastic are much nicer.

Hy

I've just known that Serpent made a rear GEAR diff for the S400, for using with stupid motors like 3,5. What do you think about that, is this the future?

if this possible we have a possibility to change cyclone diff to sprint gear diff

I tried the softer high traction arms and they did give more traction but in a crash they will twist and stretch out of shape and still look great. I would rather have the arm break, at lest then I know whats wrong with my car. Maybe the newer soft arms don't do that but I know I'm going to keep crashing, It happens.

When your purply car can not turn what do you expect. the xray cars don't break. when you have the body on the car some time we forget it is a purple weak sissy girls car that breaks. sorry

if we did that we couldn't run most of the lipo's we currently have and by the time we sell all of our HB stuff to get the xray would we get the 008 or the 009 J/K bro

The way the x-ray handles it needs to be a lot harder to break otherwise there would be no spare parts

I used the AE T5 battery hold down and post with the HPI thumb screws.
AE parts:
31256- graphit battery hold down
31254- hold down post

HPI parts:
86969- thumb screws

You have to drill holes for the post screws and counter sink them. There i an ear on the bottom of the post that sits in the slot that the strapping tape goes through. I had to remove about 1/4 inch from the outside of this so it wouldn't hit the top plate. You will also need a 3mmx16mm set screw to use as mounts. I got these at the local hardware store.

Thanks for the info... just what I need to finally secure the lipo battery.. at the moment I can use strapping tape.. I make a battery guide from plastic kydex (used in tc bumpers) and now the lipo is not moving in place.
