I did just that. I bought an 05 because everyone switched to the T-2, I figured it was my chance to get a quality car at a cheaper price.

The only thing wrong was the diff's felt like the had square balls instead of round ones.

I went to go buy some new rings/balls for the diff at my local Hobby Town, and I was surprised that they didn't stock any! Apparently everyone who ones an Xray at our track has never had to rebuild the diffs. That's either really good, or really bad.

Anyhow, I just flipped my rings, bought some associated 3/32nd carbide diff balls, cleaned everything out with motor spray, relubed the thrust washer/balls. Reassembled the diffs, and I'd have to say it's the smoothest it's ever felt.

Most people run our thrust bearings as they last longer and you can just clean them and keep running.. Link in the Sig...

My FK05 diffs were still smooth a year in on the 'faulty balls'....

I have heard good things about the Axiom thrusts...but I don't know if I'd say the majority of people used them...

The standard Xray Factory Kit diff components are great, and the thrusts will be double caged with carbide balls...

Ours are Carbide balls, Brass Retainer and grooved washers. They are tested to withstand high Axial Load and all the way up to 200deg. F.

Not ran by most but off the top of my head by EA, John Fontaine, Brian McGreevy and more but eh who are they...

Never tried to dispute the quality or the calibre of the talent that swear by your product....

my apologies if I didn't make that clear...

I need a good stock carpet set up, this car is new to me, so if anyone could help I'd appreciate it. I plan on running double pink orange fronts and double pink rears. other than that my current set up isn't cutting it.

Any links to a set up sheat would be great!

If I replace the front caster blocks with aluminum, what's the next weakest part?

You should just get a P-Dub bumper and not worry about the c hubs. Ever since I got the bumper I think I broke one c hub. The only other thing I broke was the steering hub. But that was usually while running the ackerman extensions.

...and that went away after going to the newer 3 hole steering knuckles!

I have teh P-dub bumper, front Team Tamale aluminum 4.5 and 6 degree caster blocks, and rear aluminum Team Tamale 2 degree rear hubs. I havent broken a part yet. I have broke 2 bottom shock ball joints thought, think next set of tires, im going to try grinding down the inside of the rim that touches the ball joint so the rim doesnt grind into it. also going to try to take more material off of the arm too
