On the drive shaft popping issue....This car came with 68mm shafts. I upgraded to the new dual slipper and this is probably where the problem was created since the dual slipper cups are shorter than the standard slipper.

I'll be ordering the new UJoints to correct this issue. Thanks to all

I'm also running the ACER Full Ceramic bearing kit in my car. It's probably the best money I've ever spent. The bearings are lighter and smoother. I would imagine I could run them for quite a few seasons with no maintenance.

I've vented the side and rear scoops on the kuhler body plus several holes in the lower windshield.
I have holes drilled in the body in the same places. I have to change the slipper for the track i run at every week. different tracks week to week. I had a 21 22 23 24 25 26 pinions in the car all were hotter than where I'm at now. The esc is around 175 to 185 as well. I may be able to get a 19 tooth pinion on there but it would be close. May have to go to my 10.5t with similar gearing.

These are the ones I use:

Most of them rate just like this but I bought a pack at my LHS and they were pre-drilled for the allen wrench. I looked on Amain but don't see them there.

I'm using the Lunsford Titanium ball stud and cups. They have always been solid for me and they have a hole so you don't have to pop them to move things around. I usually keep the ball studs for several cars as I almost never break them. The cups seem pretty good as well, I change them every so often to make sure they are tight. Especially if I have popped it a couple times.

I did always like the feel of the losi cups though. petitrc says use the Kyosho as an alternate...they look really similar to the losi.

The Kyosho cups are indeed QUITE similar but the Losi ones are little smoother and damn near 100% perfect internally which is why I prefer them over Lunsford, RPM and any other brand. I found that some RPM cups were slightly imperfect and would not lend themselves to 100% free movement, though it's pretty rare. The TLR ones are just soooo strong they aide in preventing bent turnbuckles.

I found a cheap servo horn that works great with these, a ProTek PTK-7805(Amain.) They are $6.49 and just the right length. I also offset mine in a vise to get it perfect. They are a very snug fit, so be patient.

I thought the Avante was a sct? I had one and it was rather large to be a buggy. It was way ahead of its time with a graphite chassis.
