We have two XB9E at the track ready to run, a third is coming and speculation for a fourth...

There are also allot of XB9's (2012/2013 versions), some use the ADS system from RB and some use traditional pistons setup. So it's only a matter of time to find a good setup....
Awesome! what tires do you run on astro? I use aka crossbrace in hard compound or schumacher mini spike in yellow. I know Dboots is making some too but I've no idea how they perform.

My girlfriend plans to change her buggy too next month, she's not sure about which one to get right now.

The bearings still slide side to side, I need to add shims behind them, so there's no actual compression on the outer bearing race but it looks like I'm good to go!

thanks!
I would leave a little play. Just like we do with clutch bearings. Remember all that stuff gets hot. Heat makes things expand.

I mostly run Tourex X300 Syntrack, when the circuit is wet (damp) Tourex X300 Soft (some even super soft). There are some drivers trying Schumacher Mini Pin never seen Mini Spike at our track. Spirals seems to work also (have to try them myself some time). The reason for me using X300 Syntrack is that it is a cheap and very predictable tire combination whereas the Mini Pin's are unforgiving (grip, grip, grip...rolllll).

Does your girlfriend has something to say about the car she drives, lucky her. I'm wedded and my wive drives what i tell she can drive In her case she drive an SC10 4x4 FT, with a 4700kV at 35% or so :-) But she likes it and is just for giggles....

Hey folks,

My Xray has developed a squeak somewhere in the driveline. I suspect it's a bearing, though I haven't determined that yet. Before I simply start tearing down and inspecting every single bearing and moving part in the entire car, I thought I'd ask if there is a common cause for this squeak? It's definitely in the drivetrain and not in the suspension.

If there isn't a common cause for this, I'll just start removing/cleaning bearings and replace as needed.

Thanks!
Tommy

@ JaderL: nice rides!

What pinions a are you guys running?
Wanted to run 18-19 with a tekin 1700 but the 19T I have is to large to fit properly.
I have a 17T that fits but I'm not sure if a 18T pinion would fit.
Anyone fit a 18T on the stock spur?

Just figured out the Internal gear ratio is 3.33:1 instead of the 4.3:1 I'm use to on my other buggys so I don't need such a large pinion lol

I have only testfitted a 18T pinion, and it seems to fit just. I'm currently running 16T with 1900kV and if my skills improve i go up to 17T (although thats really fast :-))

Yea 19T tekno pinion on the stock metal spur(not sure if going composite makes difference)
It would fit but no room at all to mesh. Good to know 18T can be squeezed in.
Going to try out 16 or a 17 pinion for the 1700. I mostly run indoor tracks so I don't need to gear to tall.
