I really belive Hudy make most of their money from the blades even in stock they wear bad and one hole always breaks

come on Hudy lets make these pethetic little parts cheaper and stronger

for what they are you should be able to by a bucket for $20 but instead you get 4 for $4 thats f#@king rediculus

and these are the same are they ?

with the pricing of corally parts I thought it would be dearer

so there you go Hudy even Corally make the blades cheaper lets start dropping the price 25c each would be fair

oh come on guys!! quite cher bitching. How often do you have to replace a arm after hitting the wall or replace bearings cuz they are to small to handle the stress ??? This car is tough so stop about the plastic caps

how about they just stoppped useing them completly so the diff halfs wear out or the drive axle pins wear out? that would be better

If your not changing your front blades you probally not running a spool or going fast enough..LOL I run a spool and change them every 2 weeks so the $2 is nothing every 2 weeks for 2 blades.

Have the same problem with the blades when running a spool. With anything else they seem to last pretty long. With a diff I hardly ever have to replace them. I think that is better than breaking or wearing out other parts. The price isn't bad at my LHS. Overall the Xray is a great piece.

When are you going to make the trip back up?


A question to everyone,

How do I get my car to the Vegas weight limit? I have the following and am still about 40 grams over???

Xray 05
3mm chassis
wide top deck
all 4 posts in
diff front and rear
Jaco Foams, 28mm
Airtronics 358 Servo
LRP Q2 w/ worlds kit, lg cap.
JR RS310 Reciever
PT
P-Dub front bumper
Batter brace, would like to keep if possible
GP3700 batts.

I just ordered the Ti bolt kit to help lose some lbs. but do you think that is going to be enough? Any other options I might be able to get to help lighten the car? Thanks for any help.

Someone suggested shortening up the front camber links to give more camber change for more mid corner steering. Does that sound right or is there a better adjustment first?
You might also try raising your front downstop setting up .5 to 1mm or using a little anti-squat with the new .75 suspension holders with the rearward mounting position of the rear arm hinge pins.
