That's a 3mm wrench (open end). If you can't get one on the Hudy site, you can go to a local hardware store and pick one up.

Well I'm not a beginner, but the raycer seems pretty cool. I'm just not thrilled with dropping $330 on a car. What spares to you suggest getting. I know some arms, but what other stuff commonly breaks on the car?

Yeah I knew it was 3mm in size but I am having a heck of a time finding a wrench that small. Even Snap-On tools only list a wrench that goes to 3.2mm. Is the lundsford wrench 3mm? Probably not since its a US company. No biggie..the search will continue

Thanks
Matt

No, it is not the shock body that causes leaking problem. The things that might be the culprit are the bladder and o-ring.
I spoke to Mario Hudy, and he suggested to first check the top bladder when rebuilding the shocks.

I too prefer fixed to the clicker just one less thing to mess around.

get the Xray...
spring steel hop-ups will last forever. will take alot of abuse before you'll have to replace the parts. the Xray is more durable than the TC3. Very easy to break the arms on the TC3...Xray's built like a tank! Quality, workmanship, and materials are second to none on the Xray. You will not be dissappointed.!

Even with new bladders in place, aluminum shock bodies..they still leak. I did replace the bladders with one made by General Silicone...the leak did go away. I replaced all the shocks to TC3's

rc-zombie, considering that the xray t1 is an (relatively) older kit than the evo2, is it still worth it? will evo2 parts fit the t1 or will i have problems with parts in the future? thanks for the quick reply by the way..

The T1 is still worth it...Evo2 parts will fit with no problems.
only major differences are the chassis and you will not have any broblem with parts in the future. When it's time to replace parts..just replace them with EVO2 parts.

I think the tc3 is a little easier to setup for a newbie to the rc scene. The problem that I had was that is was definately not the most durable car. I put the rpm wide bumper on the front and this seem to help the problem. So just to start out with the tc3 is a good car.

Once you get into the rc scene, you will endup looking for another car. The tc3 gets boring to work on. Alot of the setup require you to buy new parts. Then you had to keep spare of all the different setups. It just got to be a pain to keep track of everything.

I just picked up an evo2 from zombie. and am still eagerly awaiting it's delivery, but from what I have been able to read and ask other about. This car has everything.

also as a newbie. support at your local track and lhs is a must. so look to see what everyone else drives.

just my $.02

Hello X Ray dudes, After having my diff overtightened, i have replaced the rings, the balls with new carbide ones, and still the diff remians feeling like it has flat spots..

So my question is.. could this be the thrust bearing balls that have the flats? thanks
