Quick questions-

What parts (if any) are replaceable / compatible with Xray?

Do the stock shocks go together and work smoothly out of the box.

I have heard different things regarding both, figured I would ask here to see what kind of feedback I get, thanks.

A-arms, spool, gear diff, belts....

Not steering blocks, cvd, c-hub...

Stock dampers are good, but the plastic bottom cap needs a few reaming process, you need to replace the huge silicone tube inside the cap and fit the delrin shim and 1 oring attached with the pro kit.

Thanks. I have lots of Xray arms, so that is good to know they are compatible.

Not %100 about the process you are describing with the shock build. I understand the bottom cap part, not sure about the "huge silicone tube" inside the cap. I'm looking to possibly buy this kit, thanks for the help thus far.

I'm spanish and it's difficult to explain this process... sorry...

Shock dampers comes prebuilts, you need to dissasemble the plastic bottom cap, replace the silicone seal, it is really big, and replace it by a delrin shim and a O-Ring (comes in a plastic bag inside the kit).

After this, if the shaft don't moves so smooth, maybe you have to ream a little the plastic cap.

The driver Chung Ka Keung posted that pictures on his blog.

Take a look please:

standard shock


dissassemble


left, coming silicone seal, center and right the correct way


first delrin shim


after silicone oring




Better explained?

That's what I was asking. but my kit had 4 orings and I was told I needed 2 per shock. I asked the shop to aske the importer and they sent me the correct one yesterday. Have not had the time to look at the package as I'm racing oval this weekend and getting ready.

Hi,

May I know how's your people measure the droop? I saw some setup sheet explained that it's measure under arm and select middle camber length hole for the front. I don't really get it. Is this refer to the damper mount?

Thanks!

I am in the US. I have sent them an email about some parts but I haven't heard back. I noticed that they didn't have the floating servo mount and the complete gear diffs were out of stock.

I found a place out of Spain as well but still waiting to here from them as well.

hi you need to email sales@team-powers.co.uk

I'll check our Current Stock as I am pretty sure we got the floating Servo mount but not sure we have gear diffs in stock at the moment. Should be able though to help you on the rest.. If you are struggling to get one and XRAY one will fit but you need to use the thinner xray bearings for it to rotate freely.
