Any one else done this one....


that may work for dust and dirt but that is only part of the problem. case a jump or lawndart the car and the flex will cause the bearings to fail....dustboot unfortunately wont help.

Actually it fit pretty tite, When test fitting, i put the diff in and pushed the diff gear towards the pinion and it would bind when spinning driveshaft. Once I let it go it was smooth so I put 1 shim on the opposite side of the ring gear. My out drives on my active diff are the dented ones that are bulky so the shims do not fit over them therefore you need to take the diff apart to shim it. Maybe because I am using truggy pinion vs buggy pinion?

Me neither..I got almost 9 hours race time on my 13x20 pinion bearings and they still spin like new.I'm actually replacing the pivot pin in the cvd more frequently now so I'm happy with mine as it stands..One of the reasons I switched to xray in the first place was for the captured cvd pivot pins.got fed up with my rear kyosho one loosening the grub screw on the pinion gear and losing the rear drive completely.And it only takes me an extra 5 minutes after removing a diff for service/oil change to remove the 3 small screws and re-grease the bearings anyway.

That's what the mod was for and being to get a good grease on the pin and CVD assembly, No way is a dust boot is going to stop flexing...lol that's the guy behind the remote that does that job.....

If you dont want to cut a chassis brace just buy a fionori, they are about the same price and it clears.

So your saying you drive perfect and dont make mistakes. You have any jumps like these at your track? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m47sJ...eature=related The boot/grease mod is to pack grease around the opening to keep dirt away from the bearing and prevent premature bearing failure. Does the manual say use that much grease for a cvd pin assembly lol.

No need to go thru the history on the bearings and why this mod is being done. Ill take my chances with losing a driveshaft than losing a diff and pinion. Your in a qualifier and lose a driveshaft, ok just put it back on, get ready for the next qualifier, but if you grind up a diff and pinion, good luck with that see you next race unless you have spares. If Xray Drivers are running it, Hence the pics of Josh Wheelers car on Neobuggy then there must be a reason why. I am sure your car does not spin well if you grease your diffs like the youtube video posted somewhere in this thread as I did it and it causes lots of drag. Each to their own though. Im loving it right now car rolls so smooth seems like it has a "FREAKY FIRST STEP" haha
