Do you break it there? Both of mine are fine (the full length yaiba and the factoryone).

Anyone using these with good results or waste of money?

Agreed, that hole seems to be the weak point.

We use them for carpet racing, they might be a good idea on certain astro tracks as well. With grip levels lower than that I believe they are not needed.

Iv'e never broken a top deck but I don't use that hole either so it would be a nice option in my case just for looks.

Yes I use those very ones. The cnc work isn't up to hudy, but neither is the price. I also race on carpet, probably no need on clay.

Anyone has successfully put up the mod with yokomo metal bevel gears? Can't believe the xray ones were not released for a year already since their advertising pic...

Any advantage of running the full top deck as opposed to what comes with the kit?

Not sure what it should be like on a dirt track, but on Astro tracks over here in the UK, I found it made the car more consistent at the back end, before it felt like the rear flopped about like a fish on land.

I will post pics of the chassis underneath. My XB4 weights 1688g instead of 1750g with saddles
