Cool..thanks for the input!

Looking at the Integy, I wasn't sure how well it would work with the Xray's use of screws instead of nuts to hold the wheels on...

Glad to hear it's not a problem.

Any other opinions?

Is the original T1 top deck as stiff as the new stiff deck? I got a T1R and put the original T1 deck on it to stiffen it up. So I was wanting to know.

I need some help guys. I bought my T1 Evo2 with composite C hubs used a while back. Most of the bearings are knida gritty and such so I'm trying to replace them with a set of Team Blue Star bearings I bought. Rear half of the car, no problems at all, take apart, replace bearings, put back together. Front of car is a total disaster! The axles will NOT come out of the carriers. Snap ring popped right off, but the axles and driveshaft refuse to budge. I can wiggle them back and forth a bit, but thats it. I've even tried holding the steering block in a vise and wacking on the axle (pushing it outward of course) with a rubber hammer and it STILL won't budge! Is there any secret or something? At this rate I'm gonna have to stick with some grindy front bearings just cause I can't get the stupid things apart and its really making me mad....

if u have the manual,u ca see that there is a pin which is perpendicular to the axle and i think the pin has either slipped out a little(blocking the extraction) or it might be broken inside...
try to shake it a little to help it back into position(within the axle)
OR destroy the steering Hub(which costs like 5bucks),and save the Axle(which costs a lot more)

That must be it. Really sucks that both the left and right sides are stuck. Guess I'll have to wait on my bearing replacement until I can order some extra steering blocks, cause I'm definatly not getting anywhere by shaking them around.... Thanks for the tip.

if you have the alum hubs then what is happening is that the hub is flaired out. this is usually the case with the alum. What you need to do is get a small file and file the edges of the hub where the snap ring seats. you may look into investing in the spring steel axles.

be careful with the steering block, they are only $5, but a lot of the c-hub stuff is had to get right now. I know that serpant just got a huge shipment from over seas, but may take a while for the lhs to get their backorders filled.

Yeah I have the stock hubs up front, the rears are spring steel, that could explain why the rear came right out... I'll give the files a shot before I start up the dremel.

spring steel is def the way to go. the alum ones are notorious for getting stuck.

Default T1R layshaft bearings

Again my layshaft bearings siezed up on me. This time on both ends, I ended up melting both plastic bearing holders.

Any remedies? The belts arent that stiff to cause much stress on the layshaft.
