Hey guys, I am switching to xray here at in the near future and just wanted to know the difference between the ecs from hudy and spec R? Is it just $50 or is it worth spending the extra cash to get the ones from xray. Besides the normal spares any part suggestions for med/low grip asphalt? Thanks in advance.

If you buy the Hudy ECS's be sure to get the latest version on them. They are called "extra hard" and have the part no. 305332.

They are much more durable than the two earlier versions. We run mod and they hold up fine. We have used the earlier versions also and they broke, so I can say that the new extra hard ones work.

We have broken an Arrowmax ECS as well, so we went back to the Hudy extra hard ones and still uses them.

The Hudy ECS's are more expensive than the other brands, yes I know, but if you are maintaining them or even run a stock class, they will last for a long time.

I think many went for other options than the original Hudy ECS's because of the early durability issues, and the Hudy ECS may got a deserved bad reputation, but with the new extra hard versions, I think that reputation is no longer justified.

I have had a minor issue with the Arrowmax ECS's that didn't fit perfectly into the spool cups because of a misaligned pin.

Whether the Hudy ECS's are worth the extra cash, probably not 1:1, but I use them because I want to be sure to buy a spare part that is 100% guaranteed to fit.

Got my Xray a month ago already, but was still waiting for a brand new LRP speedo. Got it today.
Looking forward to hurt some asphalt on the MACH track...

Sorry to confuse you. For me a brand new one. LRP will not release a new speedo soon.

I use the Hudy ECS's and the standard plastic spool cups get worn quite quickly (running mod).

Is there a steel spool cup replacement to be used instead? Ones that does not require to use blades.

The manual mentions the part no. 305137, but those steel axel driveshafts requires the use of blades.

Thanks for the links.

I have found some from Roche and Radtech also.

Guess Xray only makes ones that requires blades.

Try Arena out drives, very good steel no blades, cups have 4 sleeves.
Dont forget to put some grease f.e. tamiya heavy duty grease.
I use them for mod 4.5 on a very demanding track and they do well.


Thanks
