In 3 months with the car....I have only replaced only the front blades once. They have a tendency to wear out with a front one way.

If you use the spool, you'll replace them more frequently. With the front oneway, you'l have good life with them depending how often you use your car.

My reccomendation is to keep some extra blades in your parts box.

Hi,

I'm just looking to see if anyone has some experience in setting the 05 up with more turning speed. It says on the Xray site that the optional rear toe in hubs helps gain more rearend turning speed. Anyone tried this yet?

Also, I am currently running stock with a oneway. I would like to know what do I need to do to set my car up for 19T or brushless mod.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I just did the rear arm mod for running foams.
The tire still touches the shock bottom just enough to feel it when you turn the tires.
I dremmeled them inline with the rest of the arm like the book shows.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

That's why I didn't bother cutting the arms. Just put a washer in between the hub and rim. You could use another cone washer.

Dayton,

I too tried that mod and had the same problem, so I just went to the inner hole and it was fine without the issues of grinding and retapping the hole to ensure that there was enough threads to hold the shock bottom accordingly.

Just shave slightly more into the arms. I had to dremel perhaps one mm into the arm above and beyond the arm's protrusion, and the shocks clear perfectly.
