Is there a secret out there that prevents the breaking of the stock axle cross pins when running a spool? I have broken two today on the left-front

A #53 drill bit (not 100% sure on size) for the pins.

JB-are you running mod or 19/stock?

yep make them out of #53 drill blank perfect fit and you'll have a really hard time breaking them. have been using the first set i made since last june without a single breakage (of those )

I think with the spool you are going to tear them up no matter what, I tried the hardned Yok axles and they didn't break but they were worn out in one race day. If you want to stick with the spool, you might try the TIR parts, I have heard they hold up well with the spool, I have not tried them yet.

I also really could never get the car to rotate the way I wanted it with the spool, (I have not tried a plastic one yet) I went back to a diff with some thick diff lube and the car is just as fast and doesn't tear up parts.

from a very technical tight and twisty layout, we are now running a very fast and flowing layout, and i was wondering if there are stiffer swaybars for the BD?

also, any set-up tips for a fast and flowing layout? thanks - jason

I can't really tell since I do both ... but I'm gonna try the #53 drill bits and Yoko hardened uni's. Maybe I should go back to the TC4 bones & try them w/ the #53 drill bits first.

What thick diff lube did you use?

Chad, what was the turn on your mod motor that you were running after the races on Saturday? I am thinking about getting one. What turn would you recommend getting? The Checkpoint motor seems to be the way to go after my limited research.
