A few pages back I posted a list of parts needed to mount TAMIYA shocks on Xray kits.

Thrust bearings are the ones that provide the tension to the diffs...not the 2 little metal shielded bearings that the diff gears ride on.

I am aware of that. I was referring to the thrust bearings installed in the long side of my diffs, not the ball bearings that the diff gears ride on.

The old thrust bearing had a brass (or copper) cage. the difference is obvious.

According to the manual this carbide bearing should be in the diff:

Quiglee, I just bought some regular Integy setup wheel nuts ($10 for a set of 4) and thread locked some long set screws into them. Makes for some really quick adjustments.

can anyone elaborate on xray's shock setup and get me some good pics and which "something in there to change" to start with on -onroad carpet?
I've mainly dealt with AE shocks these are high tech to what I'm use to.

Default Thrust

I just changed mine today with a new one.

The factory-pre-installed-crappy-thrust broke in pieces.

Sh*%

I installed the good one now. It works fine. Anyone who hasn't change it so far, better think about doing so cause it will fail sooner or later.
