I've got three wings right now, they're in decent condition.

Anyone here planning on picking up a X1 CRT truggy?

Here are some pics of my X1 CR.

The only part that I ever had a problem with was replacing the out-drives.They wear pretty quick.If you are doing a lot of racing.

The only parts that broke on my Jammin(when i ran one) was the steering posts(couldn't tell until dissassembly), front rear lower arm mount and the nuts pulled thru the origional soft motor mounts(upgraded now i'm told)...It is a pretty tuff car.
The new trucks looks really sweet, btw!

ya, i think that the plastic steering posts might be a problem. why not have aluminum ones Jammin?

also, is it safe to use rubbing alcohol to clean off your car? motor spray and nitro cleaner are pretty expensive, and they don't last long at all.

I use diluted simple green and a tooth brush and spray some wd40 on afterwards.

The only reason i dilute it make the bottle of Simple green last alot longer. I just put it in a spray bottle 1/4 simple green 3/4water and it strips dirt and oil away it doesnt need to be any stronger.

IT WORKS GREAT FOR CLEANING TIRES!! Spray on let it sit a few seconds and the dirt or clay just falls off.

[QUOTE=macnkitty2002]i think that the plastic steering posts might be a problem. QUOTE]

where got plastic steering post..?? jim mentioned alloy 7075 steering post where their shape has thin section, its the weak point that make it easy to broken.. i also have broke that steering post, a-arm, the plastic front arm holder bend/broke and the screw pop of from the gear box.
i think the gear box is mistaken, suppostly the front rear arm holder section where it screwed the a/b block, must use long screw because that section have to absorb all the hard impact. the short screw always pop of and all the thread on the gear box gone
