Well-theres the budget too-I have a $$$ filled box of Tc3/Demon spares for this race and nats too.

BUt I guess some:

6* plastic c-hubs (2-each per side)
2-ea. Right and left steering knuckles
3-hard rear rms
1-med front arm
1-med rear arm
1 rear upright

ALL the special parts required to do the short arm-set-up-including hingepins, servo mounts, etc.

3mm front belt
3mm rear belt
wire front sway bar and mounting hardware.
USED OKAY ON ALL Parts. I am in a no$$ situation s you can imagine a weej before the Birds!!

hahaha!! WIsh you hadnt asked now??

But I dont even know if I'll run it at Birds. Thursday night I am trying a few changes because right now the Demon feels faster.

Default Pivot Ball -or- hinge pin?

So here's a question to everybody who owns an X-ray. Being the owner of a brand new in the box EV02 kit, I was wondering; Do you prefer to run the pivot ball or the hinge pin suspension? If you prefer one over the other, why and what type of surface do you run on? outdoors, asphalt, indoor? carpet? Do you prefer one type of suspension in certain situations and not in others? If you have tried both types of suspension, what differences have you seen between the two types?

Thanks for anybody who can provide some feedback. I'm just wondering what type of suspension to build up my new kit with.

hinge pins? Or C-Hub? in the foc u get C-hub and pivot or im mistaking I Like C-Hub lighter and most people run them. i think pivot is stronger (Dont quote me on that ) but ive been running C-Hub and love it.

Yes, I meant pivot ball or C-hub. I knew it had a name, but my mind was drawing a blank when I wrote the post.

id go C-Hub all around mostly all pros use C-Hub. easier to adjust. Pivot is harder.

For all of you spare part owners "you suck" LOL. Here all of us that have Xray's have barely been able to run the cars. Parts are nowhere to be found. This SUCKS! Everything from any store I have ordered from is on back order. I wish Xray would get there act together. What are the dates for the Snowbirds anyway?

Looks like I will have to call them in the morning as their website does not let you scroll through them for parts purchasing. Hopefully nobody else beats me (so nobody call till I am done) to the shops. I will have an order probably for atleast 10 different racers LOL.
