Xenon is good, but somehow mine get some dirty after one race day. Looking for a black color spur.

CRC Spurs use a different size ball
Diff balls are consumption items anyway.

Got it, thanks!!! Also found that Roche's 1/8" balls are actually the same size as Xray's 3.175mm balls.

Building my Roche Evo F1. Should have it done tonight, I'm kinda slow plus I was watching football and basketball during the initial build.















Rear-end and gear tonight!! Really liking this car so far - only had to ream 1 swivel ball. Kit finish is excellent.

The Roche aluminum chassis and rear pod are very reasonable ($55 and $13.50)... with the chassis, rear pod and aluminum side link mounts it ran ~ $377 shipped. the Xray is generally over $350... it's $299.99 if you can find it (which you prob won't), the Yokomo is $380.99 (@ Amain) and the F6 is $339.99 (@ Amain) and those two have carbon fiber chassis only - unless you go aftermarket. I'm sure the 2019 Xray X1 (U.S. Spec) will come with aluminum chassis and rear pod, but will be at least $350. the Roche is priced right, I think. Just need it to be in stock, he has the alum. chassis and pod in stock.
