Hmm. Is that an older update, like the receiver box? They look the same as mine.

They're nothing big, probably just more material or different mold. Been out for awhile. I still haven't broken my stock ones.

there is more material around the hingepin for added strength on the updated rear hubs

here is some info in regards to 46/48t Kyosho lightweight spurs, yes, they can be used

also, can the 46t/48t kyosho lightweight spurs be used on the x1cr? I know HN makes one, but its way expensive. thanks dude Trevor

Yes,
However, I would run 2 shims on each of the 4 inner gears (the 4 gears on the cross pins). I have ran it before we had a lightend spur with only 1 shim like how it is stock, but after measuring the depth of the kyosho spurs, 2 shims would better fit the mesh.

you are right, the driver makes the buggy, but not the materials that make the buggy hahahahahaha




If you have not tried the 8.5, try not to give comments ya!! The hobao range of cars are durable........when you get ONE....you will know it from the design to the finishing..............Im running ONE 8.5 with Axe Motor Rossi MAMBA.............fast enough & tough enough to run 10 tanks without a problem & yet be able to to be one of the fastest buggy!! Get one & try....ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS!!

HOBAO USES CHEAPEST MATERIALS/METALS IN THE WORLD
they may work fine for flat/grass tracks in Euroracing scene, but they crumble in the USA, its a horrible rough section buggy, UNLESS they have 16mm BB's, which arent stock, Im not trying to diss the car or owners of it, im just tellin you what I have seen and where its at in current US racing scene to my knowledge.
