And to set the record straight, I had to do a McGyver fix for your brand new Serpent the morning of your first outing with that car at IRCR.

I never made the harmful statements you claim I did about Kyosho, TeamC or Paolo. Marcus pushed you to misinterpret my message and sent you the PM that you admit to and witnesses have verified.

I'm amazed that someone thinks you are 'Tech-Elite'........you were going to 'pack-it-up' and go home that day until I volunteered to fix your car.

I've made no 'bold statements'..........concerning the TeamC issue, I was mirroring comments made by TeamC users that were not happy with the 'failure rate' you acknowledge. I'm not the one that 'stepped in it' here by stating the Kyosho has 'poor racability'................ A 'bold' and 'stupid' statement is is like your claim 'Paolo can spank us on 3 wheels'..........really !!

Is it still true that you have not yet been on 'the podium' at a major event. I think it will remain so because there are too many 'factory drivers' including the one that can 'spank you on 3 wheels'.

Search Nitrohouse's dogbones. They have a good selection.

'currently out of stock' but Canyon Hobbies lists a "JQ Products 110mm/JQPB152 that you may be able to find elsewhere although CH is good about getting that kind of stuff for you.

Now we have the X3, I've seen her, shes fast but I've seen the same kind of part failures I have seen on the Team C. Still new to the market this would be a good car for those who like to run something different than everyone else.

Which part failures are you experiencing with the X-3?

No real trubble after several hours of driving.

Things to look after are:

- Dimension of the driveshafts comming out of the diff´s and the mating diameterof the coresponding drive cub. I found this inner diameteroversized causing the drivecup to loosen during operation. If they get loose the pinion might destroy the diff case. Fix with strong loctite.

- All of the grub screws need loctite. Before you do this make shure all of them have a flat end. If not grind them flat.

- The drivecups are very hard and tend to eat up the drive pins if you do not keep them lubricated.

That´s all I have dicovered so far.
