Hi, what is the new graphite spur gears?

What are the differences compared to the normal spur gears?

For example - Part # 335654

The new 3356xx gears are moulded from the all-new special lightweight and extra strong graphite material.

Thanks Brano,

One more question....

I have heard various reports regarding the lightweight 2-speed shaft.

Obviously, the major gain is it lightens the drivetrain significantly. However, I have heard it effects the "de-acceleration" of the car, hence why it is not a popular upgrade.

Thoughts, suggestions?

More rotating mass can also create an "drag brake" effect as you describe. Lately we have only been using the standard 2-speed shaft (not lightweight) and handling has been very good. I have not noticed a big difference in handling between the two. However, the lightweight axle will provide better acceleration.

Best regards

Hi Gewü,

We have many different optional parts to improve the performance of the car in different ways.

As first steps to improve the overall performance I would like to recommend the following parts:

1. Ventilated brake disk
2. light weight pivot balls in Alu or Titanium material
3. Aero disc (just in front)
3. Flex brace front suspension
4. Alu radio plate stay
5. softer anti roll bar in front
6. softer spring in front 4.0
7 harder spring in rear 5.0

You will find most of them in your instruction manual

Hi Krägefski,

Thank's for your fast replay.
I have just a few more questions.
Are you runing the blade stabi or the normal wire stabi and what kind of spider gears are you useing steel or composit?

I'm really sorry for all the questions I never drove nitro cars befor and here in Austria is every one driving sheperd and I'm the only one how is driving a xray.

Best regards Georg

Hi Gewü,

-the team run with both anti roll bar types. I prefer 2.2mm wire. It is easier and more precise to adjust, the feeling is more linear.

-three different materials are available for diff gears. Do NOT use composite, it is not made for nitro cars, as it is not tough enough.
We use steel and will test later again with graphite. You can use the alu axle to reduce the weight of the diff, they work very well!




Have fun!
