Yea...but does it make sense to keep buying CVD's (soft metal) when they bend when you just tap a board? That's why I'm curious if the FK'05 ones are the right length and bolt right up to the hex adapters in the C-hub.

Default Avid Review of Xtreme Rc Cars Magazine

Have you fellas read the April 2007 Xtreme RC Cars mag review on the Avid? its interesting teh ratings they give it on after tesing the car. I dont wat to give anything away, but the car does have a few issues that need to be addressed very quickly...it needs some updates, now. Like the bulk heads dor easy access to diffs, and easy removal change of spur gear, and get rid of those e-clips! There are a few more things that need attention, but it did get a very good value rating.

so your running FK'05 CVD's and one-way outdrives? I have to put my Avid back together pretty soon. I've been playing with 12th scale the last couple weeks.

Mine was stock except I put small shims under the front-rear susp. arm mounts and put the ballstud to the inner most hole on the steering knuckle. After that it was just as fast as my Euro X-ray and drove similar to it. After that I bent the front CVD so I just stopped running it till I figured out the parts.

Hi all,

Just finished putting the kit together and idd, seems like a quality ride.
(Except for the difficult diff/spur access)

I did however find 1 dumb problem and I wanted to know if anybody else has it.

With the 2 plastic battery holders in place I cant fit my battery...
I found out my forward holder should be about 0.5-1mm to the front for it to fit!!! I drive IB4200 and they are well put together (I mean, no gaps between any of the cells)

Looks like I'm gonna have to slot the chassis holes on that one.

Anybody try to tap an M3 hole in the rear hubs yet?? (to hold the axle with a screw instead of those dumb e-clips)

I filed my front and back battery slots a little wider on the outsides to help with the installation of my 4200's. The pieces on the sides of the battery I ground them out a little bit to compensate also.

Well, I slotted the front 2 mounting holes of the holder.
Also found out why it wouldnt fit, I forgot I allways put extra protective shrinkwrap around my cells. it isnt very thick, but that times 12....

Rest of the car is fine though (allthough I dont like I need to take apart half the car to change a spur)

Might need to do that too, its pretty tight in there as well.

Well, luckily for me, my LHS has some prts in stock so that wont be to big a problem. Just heard so much about the axles, I hope the new ones come out soon!!!

We'll see how the car holds together this weekend :-)
