Hey all...Picking up anf FK05 today and have some shock questions. I have heard of some using the AE spring perches. Will this work? also, I know the stock lower ball end hits the 28mm foam tires. Will the AE lower ball end with screw work in it's place? I have a ton of leftover AE parts as well as springs and would like to use them if possible. Any info would be great!

I say, don't. When I bought my first XRay (EVO 2 FOC,) a friend of mine told me not to because they'd never seal right again after that. I didn't listen, but he was right. I never could get them to work correctly after that. I've had good luck just cleaning them out with something like an RPM Bearing Blaster and re-oiling them without taking the shield off. Works for me.

You can find bearing cleaning instructions in the XRAY forum FAQ thread.

Rob,

Removing and re-mounting the seals can be done. You just have to make sure you do the following (included in the instructions):

* Flatten out any bends in the seal carefully before re-mounting them
* Put them back in exactly as they came out, to include both the correct side of the bearing to mount each one on AND the correct side of the seal that faces out
* Use the flat part of your fore finger and thumb (the center of your finger prints) to press them back in and DO NOT use any tools to *push* them back in

FYI, I've posted an important update in the XRAY forum for those interested in the One-way / Carpet / Foam Setup Thread...

Yeah...thats what KK told me, but finding a 116T PRS is like finding a brand new Tamiya Brusier for $100.

Rookie,

I've ran a kimbrough 116 before I got my PRS gears in... The numbers barely touch the motor mount, so if it bothers you, sand off that side of the gear a little, other wise, just run it.. I did with no problems...

If you really want PRS gears, and they are very good, like I mentioned in my previous post, you can order the 116t off of PRS's website.
