Default Third-party option parts

I'm surprised that after about two years since its introduction, there are very few companies, if any, making hopups for the T1/Evo2/T1R.

Yokomo SD and Assoc. B4 have been out only a few months and there already a lot of hopups for them.

Are the parts coming from XRAY that good? (loaded question?) LOL

I would like to see the aluminum pieces in different color. I know, no performance difference, but it's different.

How about some titanium C-hubs? Ray, you interested?

I know that Acer Racing makes Ceramic Nitride bearings for the Xray! That's a hop-up.

They have great products, their customer service could be better. But that was a while ago, maybe they have gotten better.

Default Acer bearings

I think I'll upgrade my bearings to Acer's once they wear out. Do you know if Acer bearings come packed with grease or lightly oiled?

There once use to be a good site with great support and super fast shipping in the west coast. That was until somebody from this forum screwed it all up I think because of jealousy

Now, the site no longer carry any XRAY parts. He went to great extend to get parts from all over and sometimes paid full retails just so XRAY owners can have a reliable source to parts that is not readily available at their LHS or bigger shops. He would ship the same day the order was placed and had great communication between XRAY owner. Tis a shame it has to end that way, buuuuuuuuuutttttttttttt..................Oh well.
