You weren't kidding. It's $100 for the 3mm tool.

Geez, the Mugen tool only costs $50. It's 3mm also. Anyone know if this pin tool will work for Xray? Since I already have a Mugen, I may buy it and see if it works on the Xray.
im also using the mugen tool with my xray, first time i used it, the pin that push the pin out the dogbone broke, but i could replace both center pins hammering de pin of the dogbone first to loose it a little and after that its easy to replace also with the push pin broken in the mugen tool.

Some pics of my xray in the last race, im using a modded bittydesign body, and it works with 4s (gens ace 7000mah and 5800mah), and also with 2s nanotech 5600

So I think I have a new tagline for spending the extra money on the HUDY tool...

"It may be 2x as much, but it doesn't break the first time you use it."

yes i know, but if you lose the pin with a hammer it will be good. I also wanted to buy the hudy one, but too expensive and the mugen its so easy to work on after you do the tip of the hammer.

good choice for the XB9E it's an excellent car

in order of preference:

kopropo BSX
futaba BLS 156HV
Sanwa ???
Hitec 7955TG
Savox 1267TG

choose based on your budget

but kopropo, futaba and sanwa are the best IMO

it's not only about torque and speed but about precision also

just to let you know it's been a few months I'm running the car and it's as good on low grip as high grip, I'm really loving the buggy

should post some vids soon, trouble is my girlfriend who records the vids generally wants to drive all the time with her new mugen now

Me and many others have been running the Hitec 7955 for 3-4 even 5 years with no issues, even on straight lipo for nitro. And for about $85 online it's the best in my opinion.
And we run on real off-road tracks with motocross style jumps, not astro turf with little bumps.

I'm also partial to the 7955. I've got three of them. Had one case break in 5 years and that's it. I also run an Airtronics 94780M in my Truggy. Bullet proof!!!

I got my XB9e in December so I know a shipment came in. I think xray may be having issues putting out product to meet demand, to be honest.... Because I heard they weren't shipping anymore XT9s until May or June... Right now they are focusing on on road nitro kits,, especially with an updated NT1 on the schedule.

I have been using the Savox high voltage servos both in the nitro and ebuggy. I've had some reliability issues with them, so I would recommend having a spare or getting the Futaba high voltage servos for a bit more.

The gen2 RX8 at 7.4v BEC works great with these high voltage servos too.
