It is a very good idea to grab one of those. Part number is SRC1000.

You can check out pictures on www.corallyusa.com and click on the link to Specialized R/C. Items are under the "Optionz" page. You will need to purchase both the Steel Blades and the CVD Bones that have been drilled and tapped on the end.

Do you have the retail pricing on these items?

I'm glad steel blades are coming out.... if my plastic ones aren't in the prime shape, they tend to bind in the outdrives of the one way when you rotate the wheel.

I do have a question though, what's the result of crash testing of these steel blades? When you hit something, something has got to give... So, since it's not the plastic blades giving anymore, will it bend the bone easier, or even flange the outdrives on the spool/diff/1-way?

Default blades

The steel blades make your car really smooth on and off power , no chatter when used with a spool. I have been running them for two months w/ spool set up at socal raceway and all four days at the RROC ... Big shout out to Rob for looking out for the white guy, my car was sick too....see you soon Rob, thanks again.....CHARLIE ALBRECHT

How exactly do you get the steel blades on since they are not bendable like plastic? Do you have to bend them open and then bend them back shut once over the dogbone?

Since the steel blade is harder than the Aluminum outdrive, how to the outdrives wear with the steel blades? Personally, I would rather change plastic blades than Aluminum outdrives.

you have to buy new CVD's... they come so you put the blade over the end of the cvd, then you put a pin through the blade. http://corallyusa.com/new/specializedrc/bones.gif

Don't worry about stuff bending, it won't be any worse than the stock blades. In fact, I had less wear on my spool b/c the blade was actually there. The stock plastic ones would break off and the pin would eat up the spool. Been testing them since December and no problems.

I also ran the 3.9 chassis and top deck at the RROC , stiffer is always better i dont believe in chassis flex, it doesnt make any sense to run a flimsey chassis..Let the shocks to the work , to keep all fours planted on the track...I believe that the chassis should NOT be used to make traction..I also ran the ASASSIN rear shock tower for more DOWN TRAVEL ..just my 2 cents...thanks rob talk to you soon..CHARLIE ALBRECHT
