Default my ultimate ninja

I have another new ninja that i just completed a break in on. I put ceramic bearings in it. Soon i will get my speed crank to drop in as well. I also plan on putting a ebmods head button and will get a lightened rod as well.

Should be awsome. Can't wait to drive it.

both are good, but i just like the feel of the lighter crank. idc the speed crank is deff not worth the extra money, buggy or not.

Man where have you been. You come up with sone of the funniest s!t. I thought we lost you and then bam there you are. The speed crank has it's name for a reason>>> speeeeeed. IMO the speed crank is smoother than the jx. Idk why you would want to change a brand new crank out, bearings I could see but not a crank. The eb mods button is worth it's weight in gold. I would run it and see what you think. I can say one thing about them speed crank after 7+ gallons there's not a mark on it.

I want the new crank so i can take one and put it in my old ass vspec Got a extra P/S

Just seemed like something fun to try out. But i was pretty sure that the difference between the 2 cranks was the tungsten weight. I did not know the jx was lighter.

The JX is fine the way it is. Unless you can drive like Adam Drake, who needs all that power ?

+1. I dont see difference in the ninja and the speed on the track to be honest. The ninja is basically a very minor tuned down speed for alot less money
