Well I race mod and have plenty of different cars. The X-ray is easily the strongest I have had but more than that, it keeps its settings better (tweak) after a collision. I'd say you have just been a little unlucky.

RDknight, Are you running a spool? I do from time to time, it seems like no matter how hard I try to stay off the pipes, I brush them and get broken uprights, bent shafts, ect. This has happened with a few different makes of cars. I wish someone made a spool with some sort of spring loaded safety that would let the front diff go when extreme pressure is applied.

When I bought the car I figured they would be weak, since the RDX has issues with them. But mine has had no issues, and I've had a couple hits hard enough that I split my chassis. So I don't really think they are an issue unless your at a track that has the pipes supported with concrete or something.

Try the aluminum ones. That should help if that's an issue for you.

What is the deal with aluminum gears on the spur shaft? Are these guys wanting a heavier drive train? If so, what is the benefit? I was always of the thought, the lighter, the better.

you could always convert a diff into a spool by removing all balls and gluing a heder card or sand paper to the rings it will be loked but will give if you hit something.

Top deck looks like a BMI with the wide wings, also the rear top deck.
Wonder when those will be available.
