My LHSs and local track seem to be having a hard time with getting certain Xray parts now. Can anyone recommend a good on-line shop to help me out.

What I'm looking for are:
- L & R 3 hole steering blocks (still using the cf third hole)
- 33lb purple springs (nobody seems to want to split their set of fours)
- 2mm sway bar

I'd be willing to paypal if anybody has any of these spares to spare.
Thanks! Tom

Quick few questions, ive seen on quite a few of the team driver setups they are using the Xray Lower 0.75mm Eccentric Suspension Holders, what is the difference between these and the kit ones? And how does changing the rear differential height affect the car? Thanks

I think raising the rear diff will give you more steering and the .75mm lower the hinge pin to give more grip (i think )

Karl,

The 0.75 holder allow the hinge pin to be mounted differently... Giving a lower Roll Centre

Sounds like me, I'm studying for exams at the moment, but seem to be spending more time on RCTech that actually reading the textbooks.

My LHS had them in stock over the weekend, Larry's Performance R/C. Best to call them, 586-997-4840, located in Metro Detroit, MI. The kits on the shelf had both 3.0 and 2.0 chassis in them. Tell them Russ sent you.

Default I need some help....

since it's my first time putting an Xray together. How much diff play should there be in the rear. There seems to be alot of play between the diff and the bulk heads. I don't have the tie rods on, but it seems the rear dog bones are too shoort and don't reach the outdrive cups. Am I missing something?

Thanks.
