For those 2 particular items, yes, XRay is the only manufacturer. However, Team Tamale makes the aluminum C-Hubs, steering blocks and rear carriers for the car out of 7075 aluminum. Much lighter and stronger than the XRay pieces. They also make 7075 chassis stand offs (the posts that connect the upper and lower deck)

I'm trying to replace my steering blocks and the axle is flared on the end and won't slide through the bearing. Anyone else have this problem and how did you fix it without buying a new axle?????

But the best solution in the end are the hudy steel axles

I filed the edges and then replaced them with the steel ones.

How essential is the thicker chassis and wider upper deck to carpet racing? Will a beginner like me appreciate the difference? Can you run the wider upper deck without the thicker chasssis, or is that dumb?

I always run the kit chassie and upper deck. I bought a wider deck to try this coming season. The wider deck stiffens it, so it doesn't flex as much under the high bite conditions.

Hi guys,

Message to anybody who is running Platinum 4800 Li-po,

Can we still use the Xray carbon battery holder ? Is not the battery holder too wide and hides the plugs of the Platinum 4800 Li-po ?

Thanks for answering me.

Cheers.

you can get away without the thicker chassis, but you will want the wide top deck.

Default Max Pinion Size

Howdy,

Can anyone tell me the maximum pinion size you can run with a standard FK'05 84T 48P Spur gear? I have a race tomorrow, my car is at home and I need to know if I need to hit up the shop at lunchtime for another spur gear.

Mike
