    Those are good cups. Very hard steel. The 6mm ones worked out good on my tranny. I used a couple longer set screws with the ends turned down a little to partially fit into the hole on the shaft. Then locktight from both sides. Ue cups are also good.

    Dont you mean, so your daughter can get wrenching on this thing. Sometimes the s&h is a killer. I just paid 17.00 for shipping to get a couple things from GH in canada. couldnt find items on any of there distributors sites.

    Ooh yes which is why I didn't order a couple thongs that went on sale there at GH last time when I had cash flow for my emaxx. Shipping killed the deal badly.

    only way that would be worth it is to order like 3 sets or more and hope shipping doesnt go up with that.

    There countersunk washers for flathead screws. Came with mine too. Dont know what they intended them for. No instructions
    I used mine to mount my servo.
    what are you going to use for batt boxes? After buying a couple different ones i got some that fit the flm chassis nice. Just cut off the three raised mounts.
    Cant remember witch ones but should be in my build thread. cheap too!

    Don't know. Was thinking either a box like yours or some foam from the traxxas packaging

    I always bid just over a round number. Next bid was an even 100
    Traxxas cvds are too long and the flm rears actually sit inside the cup pretty good. Going to try rc monster's drive cups although the ones of my buggy are longer if I have problems

    lol I bid the $100. I won't pay more than that for those. I'm going to contact flm about the shafts. sucks the traxxas one don't fit. Let me know how your tbone skids fit also.

    Nice 50. Had those skids for awhile now and very happy. I reckon combined with Alu bulks, towers and lower and upper chassis braces the stock chassis is going nowhere. That is how my rig is set up and it has so far handled everything that I have thrown at it.

    I hear you. Was a steep, quick and expensive learning curve to get there.

    Nice looking skids 5o, that should keep it in one pc. I wish they would make them w/out the weak point cut out for the hindge pins right at the bend. but most of them are like that.

    At least you can track them. The bearings look sweet! I got four extra 8x16mm when i did my diffs. so i have them when the outer avids get dirty. Good thing my wife didnt see what i paid for them. LOL
