My shocks on my from my old XRAY (2008 model, upgraded to '09 and '10) ran 3 years on the same shocks without changing anything but oil

Those of you using the ascendancy clutch, how are you tightening the clutchnut, I use vise grips on the flywheel and tighten with a socket wrench. For some reason though if i use a washer between the collet and engine bearing it eventually flattens after a few tanks, which then makes my clutchnut loose because of the extra space created so the clutch starts to slip. I guess I am going to try to run it without a washer between the collet and engine bearing.

I don't use the washer between the collet and engine. I use a pair[small] of channel locks and 1/4"drive socket to tighten mine down. with small amount of lock tight.

Don't forget #352257 and #352267 for the Aluminum "vertical ball stud" caster blocks. The 352266 & 352256 are for the Aluminum "knuckles" or front hub carriers.

Thanks bro. I already went and visit amain website. 352266 and 352256 seems like the old parts from the picture. I have these already. Plus their descriptions doesnt have the v2 in it. I cross checked these part numbers with the xray shop website and its exactly the parts i am looking for. I am afraid if I place the order through amain i will get the old part which i have already. Are these running change parts? The rear hubs are spot on bro.

Question about this new cnc parts (Alum steering block v2 and alum rear hub v2) are they needed for the 2011 spec or just bling bling. I havent assembled my 2011 spec wondering if these parts are necessary. Its 200 bucks already. TIA

I dont think they are needed, they just allow more fine tuning of the vehicle.

The vertical ball stud pieces are only available on the rear hubs, #353357. The front caster blocks are unchanged at this point. XRAY has not released any new caster blocks with a vertical stud. You can use any of the composite or aluminum caster blocks with the 2011 kits, just like all previous 808s. The kit includes the composite 10deg blocks, composite steering blocks(standard width), and composite rear hubs.

The 352256 and 352266 are the aluminum steering blocks with the standard king pin angle. These pieces are now 1mm narrower than the V1 and are black in color. They have replaced the V1 pieces and use the same part numbers as before.The can be used with any 808. If you want to get back to the same geometry as with the stock composite steering blocks, run a hex that is 1mm wider than your current setup.

The 352257 and 352267 are the new inclined steering blocks with the 5 deg king pin angle. These pieces do not need any other pieces to install, and will work on any version of the 808. They will fit the composite and aluminum caster blocks.

The new kits are very good just out of the box, none of the aluminum is 'required' to make a competitive setup. The inclined steering blocks change the steering response, and the rear hubs give you the vertical adjustment in addition to the width. If you are just starting with the 808, I would actually suggest a nice batch of tuning pieces like sway bars, sprngs, pistons, ect if it was a choice between those parts or the aluminum options. Most of the local customers here have built their kits out of the box with only small changes for oil or sping and they have been very pleased. These tuning bits plus the stock aluminum hinge pin holders will let you dial in the 2011 to any track. The stock composite pieces are VERY durable. You could actually get a set of all the different caster blocks (10, 12, 14deg) in composite for testing, and when you feel comfortable with what works best for you, then make the move to the aluminum if you feel its necessary.

Hopefully that clears up some of the confusion.
