so besides drivetrain changes what can be expected for the 2011 kit? Just general areas of improvement you dont have to divulge too much info I just would like to know what basic areas other than the drivetrain. This is going to be one of the big years for xray hope they get it right.

are you guys just running the stock bearings in the car. I wanted to run a higher quality bearing, but not sure if they hold up better.

Avids revolutions are great. Dont go wasting your money on ceramics for the bulkheads cause you need to load it up with grease so it defeats the purpose of going ceramic. Just buy the 1 dollar a piece bearing ang youll be great.

You guys run a lot of grease on the bearings. Do you guys run the graphite grease on the pinions.

I use lithium. I use to pack it with the stock drivetrain, but now I just dab a bit with a q-tip. really quiets the drivetrain and makes it very smooth.

I do not normally measure this way but from memory max was Fr 105mm & R 115mm.
To add some strength to the rear it has no groove & to get more droop I replaced the stock ball joint with the older EC steering link ball joint. Cant find the number any more but the bore is correct dia & good fit, but like i said slightly thicker & longer to achieves masses more rear droop if needed.

Links covers what your asking in grease tip, & like mcion any lithium based grease. Its cheaper to buy from a automotive store in a tube. THe grapite grease is meant for the axle & drive shaft pins.
