I'm replacing my gear dif with ball dif and got another question....

In addition to TA03 diff, should I also get hard joint cup set (53217)?

Does anyone know of a source for Xevo parts? I've got one on the way and having a source for spares would be handy. Especially want to keep my eyes open for upgrades like droop limiters and the suspension upgrades.

Couldn't hurt, but not immediately necessary.

Also you could run plastic "blades" to reduce wear.

I guess the real question is if the outdrives (53217) are better than the ones included with the TA03 diff

You wont want to hear the phrase 'There is no source for Xevo parts now' then will you Jim.....

We've been trying for 6 months, and gave up.

They are stronger, no question about it.

Now, about those Xevo bits...

Thanks !
I think this will be a big upgrade then for the Avante.
With the original steering sweeper I have alot of bumpsteering because the steering links are so short, but now I can use links that are almost 10mm longer.
Thanks again sir

They're out of business, then? Guess I'd better brush up on my fabrication skills, because I crash. Lots. I haven't had to carve up any carbon fiber for a few years now. The last hunk of carbon I had hanging around was a tailpiece from a Porsche Carrera GT. Those were some damned expensive mini parts.

Tony, do you have a scan of the Xevo Chariot manual you could send my way?

The owner of Xevo was not very keen on selling spare parts originally .... was more along the lines "just buy a new kit"

I haven't spoken to him since late last year when he found out the Xevo would not be allowed at TITC again , Maybe he just gave up

Did they ban it because of an injection molded only rule? Can't imagine why they would otherwise. Still, it's a bit odd, especially considering the ridiculous amount of modification they allow anyway.

Looks like I've got an orphan on the way.
