Hi Dan,

i found my xray to have bad diffs after running. i figured that its the thrust bearing issue. so i opened up my diffs lo and behold..... the bearing cage was in shreads. what i did i pulled out my used diffs (from my fk04), pulled out the thrust bearings and installed them into my 05 diff. it was almost smooth as butter...........

BUT today we had a club race and as the day went on i found my diffs to be great to good to bad to worst i have ever had to worst-est . dont know why this has happened. i guess i will have to open the diffs again.


i was wondering if i am better off with the replacement copper thrust bearing kit for the FK04 or get the losi caged bearings?

Is this car (T1FK05) has faster entry corner speed than T1FK ? I mean faster entry speed and mid corner speed than T1FK ? Perhaps faster than TRF 415MS ?

I'm thinking to buy T1FK05 for next race event....... I'm having cornering speed problem with T1FK. How much do you guys paid in USA ?

YES 100% it had faster corner speed over the FK04 entry, mid, and exit.

IMO the FK05 will rival whatever the 415 has to offer.

Has anyone got a reply back from RCAmerica on the thrust bearing replacement program? I sent them a email a couple days ago but haven't heard anything yet. Just wondering how long it will take.
