Hello everyone, I read in some Setups that they cut the front or the rear arms. Can you please explain or show us where or what exactly you cut??

thanks

On the rear there are 2 ribs that are in the middle of the arm, they are removed so you just have 1 big hole in the wishbone. Also theres a tiny rib on the inside of the arm, close to the hinge pin that is removed also.

On the front, remove the only rib that is on the arm (but be careful of the roll bar mount, some drivers have only cut half of the rib away because they were worried about hitting the roll bar mount). Then remove the thin rib thats in front of the roll bar mount.

I couldn't notice much flex with them either, you can notice a lot more flex when you have them on the car and you try to move the caster block. But I was told I needed to work out more if I couldn't feel it

Hope this helps, its quite hard to describe.

Jonny

How long is everyones rear blade's lasting. Actually more for anyone running mod. I have three races on the car and both rear blades wore down to the pins. Wierd actually only one half of the blade, on each side.

I didn't check those until now during my rebuild. On my other car/brand, the rears lasted for 4 to 6 months. Just wondering if it is normal on this car. My diff is medium-to-medium/tight.

Hmm...surprising that it is the rears. The front blades wear out real fast particularly when running a spool. I run only 19T but my rear blades have lasted quite a while. Go through fronts every race though

Yep. its the rears that wore out like that. Wierd I would think. I just wanted some feedback from those that have been running it for a while now. I go through front blades in about 2 runs with a spool. Which is normal for me.

XRAY really should widen the slots in there outdrives and make bigger blades. The area around the pin just doesn't have much material at all
