Will need to swap out my front's as one has a little tweek in it and wobbles when spinning. I don't know how it happened as I have not crashed it, very odd. CSO finish looks good and I have noticed a lot of people running their pulleys, even the top drivers. Good price also.
depends on the tyres you use. Xceed are strange, and you need to try the wheel in different pin positions or they will wobble. there is one location and they run true. not sure on other brands.

Why would one chinese company (CSO) not be able to produce the same quality as another chinese company (Serpent) ?
No offense dude but Serpent is a dutch company. Yea parts are made in china but thats the case in like all the RC car manufacturers except XRAY.

Default CSO lightweight 2-speed shaft

Hi,

has anyone used the CSO lightweight 2-speed shaft?

I have 2 of them, and for both, there seems to be no thread inside the shaft to allow me to use a set-screw to hold the pin that sits in the 2-speed adaptor shaft.

can anyone shed some light?

Hi Serpent-Dan,

thanks for the quick reply!

hmmmm... so... i'm assuming that it is okay not to use the set screw to hold the pin in place?

It depends on the engine but a good place to start is:

15/19
48/45

Default clutch configuration

hi,

Just wondering what will give a better punch out of corners..flyweight leading or trailing or between pins ? Or someone can give me a good setup for clutch for maximum punch out of corners.

thanks

I switched from trailing edge to leading with flyweights on the pins and it's more aggressive. I run the optional flyweights with the 2 holes.

Hi there,
You used it between the fly pins? And attach 2 little screws in ?
And the gap?
