Keep us posted! I've been looking at the Xray bushings so I'm curious to hear your comparison. Although I'm tempted to just order a set of Exoteks so they arrive as soon as I return from Seattle.

I think the spur issue was just a few guys not getting their mesh right, and blaming it on the spur. The Exotec is a nice product, just keep the stock one as a spare. And as for the pinion, I don't think brand makes a difference as long as it's hardened steel, not aluminum. (I find they wear VERY quickly.

I'm sure anything would be better than the stock bushings. If anyone orders the XRay bushings, take note that you have to order 2, as they only come 2 to a pack. Speaking from experience LOL

Congrats in your buy, you will have lots of fun with your car. The spur stripping thing was never an issue by HB. I just took motor clamp screws with a bigger head for a 2.5mm tool and looked carefully on the Spur-pinion mesh and never had a problem. I raced my car for one year now and just 2 weeks ago i replace my Spur and pinion the first time just because both were worn.
I always use Hudy hard coated pinions and like them best over many others. I have the Exotek upgrade and for sure the mesh will be more exact with a machined Spur but when i replaced my old spur i took an HB again because i also read about the problems here and bought some spare Spur gears and want to use them before i put on the Exotek.
Hope this helps

I had problems with the spur gears stripping, and I think I now know why. Ever since I have ran the grub screw that locks down on the mount that is secured to the motor (when I first built the kit I didn't know what it was for but now I understand why it's there), I have had no more problems with stripping spur gears. This must prevent the motor from moving when the chassis flexes.

Hey guys, quick question for ya. Going to put shock limiters in so I don't have so much droop, is there a kit or spacer kit I can buy for this? Or do I have the fun of just finding what fits and going with it?

Any brand that uses a 3mm shock shaft limiters will fit. There were limiters in the kit I think. Check the manual. Associated will probably be the easiest to find.

For 0 rebound, are you guys pushing the shafts all the way up before closing the caps/ bleeder, or just shy of full compression?

Hey guys, I'm picking up a few things as my local indoor track is opening soon. I was wondering if the Exotek spring perches were worth it? Mine would pop loose on occasion. Thanks!

Check that the slot in the stock perches are facing to the rear every time you drive it, and they shouldn't pop off very often. I've got the Exoteks, but they're more of a bling item IMO

He's correct. And if you do get the bling you can use a small zip tie to ensure you don't loose one. Or u can even drill a hole in the stock ones.Through the hole and around spring
