I 've already break two pins comes with drive shafts using top racing pins no problem so far but one of the driveshaft case pin hole has worned badly I thought that might be because of a little longer top pin...
cheers
I've actually never run anything other than the stock pins with the flat spots and I have not had any problems even with some pretty hard hits.

I wonder if people are having their pins break due to over-tightening ...?

The belts you need are
# 30 5432 Front drive belt 513 mm
# 30 5446 Rear Drive belt 189 mm

Obviously you need to have the 38 tooth spool and rear diff pullies as well!

Black AE grease on the Thrust, and AE Silicone grease on the balls and plates, the tube with the red writing, not the black writing stealth grease
Why do some people recommend the standard Associated grease and some the Stealth grease, what's the difference?

My bet would be a new kit at no more than $550...or probably even the same price as the 009 considering the economy.

They'd save on not including the 'old' 009 parts.

Default Xray t2009

I am sure there is a new designed car on the horizon , just by reading the monthly new column on the xray website. They were talking about testing done on newly designed motor mount and other parts. The suspension holders would be more like the tamiya, using toe block etc...

Looking for gearing recommendations for 17.5 Brushless and stock brushed rubber on carpet. Track is fairly small with small straight and a good amount of turns.

I have 64 pitch now but wouldn't mind going 32.

Car is new to me and I only got time during lunch to pick up parts before our next race.

Thanks for ur help!

How would you explain over tight? I get worried that i have not tightened it enough and have i put enough locktite on it to have it hold. I have snapped 2 pins and stripped 3 of the little hex heads and had to replace that little drive coupling twice which is an expensive exercise. I guess i am over tightening them.

Switch to TRF shocks. You'll never look back...

this advice previously came from Jim FK05 so i cant take credit. Use tc5r top shock mounts, part no ae 31250 shock bushing, you'll need four, one for each top mount and use the lower mount & spring plate off the xray shocks. Also on 08's & later leave out the black "o" ring that goes inside the shock where the oil goes. TRF mini shocks wont work either as i tried this in hope of making this work without buying new shocks.

When you assemble the TRF shock, the instructions ask you to fit a black "o" ring to the shock shaft before putting it into the shock housing.

If you don't leave this out on 08/09's you won't have enough shock length + therefore will have a few problems getting correct ride height, droop etc

Also use the original Xray lower shock mount, spring saddles + springs

The associated shock bushings (ASC31250), is there anywhere we can get something similar in black? I can only find them of course in blue. Does anyone make a aftermarket shock bushing in black? Any help would be appreciated.....would hate to have blue on my black xray

New to on-road and xray all together. Got the 09 car all setup but have an issue. The belts run smooth as butter when not steering, but as soon as I steer left or right the main belt begins to chatter horribly. What should I be looking for to correct this problem?
