Definitely worth the money, nice machine work, no sharp edges, I would buy them again. I'm kind of curious to know if vanquish rings fit them as well.

Well I just got around to putting the rest of the wheels together, and then the most frustrating thing happens.....they shorted me 3 screw for the beadlock ring. That is like missing 1 piece in a puzzle, just ridiculous, I know I didn't lose any all of the screws were placed in a magnetic dish taken out 1 by 1. SOOOOO FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!! Now I will have to go by my hobby shop and hopefully they carry these tiny screws.

Problem solved thanks to some proline slash 2wd front hexes, I used the screws from those.

Making a few changes to the truck. Today I drilled out the housings to fit TJRC axle tubes to do the xr mod, and I got some new electronics I wanted to try as well. Hobbystar 60a sensored brushless esc, and hobbystar sensored brushless 21.5t motor, I'll be running this in 3s so I'll see how the esc holds up.

What do you think of the Tenshock 906? Hard to find reviews/info... could be a cheap waterproof way to power my Wraith, 1250KV version on 4s should be fun.

It wasn't all that so you're going sensored or wut?

It was a decent motor just not as smooth as sensored or brushed, which was to be expected. I mostly just like to try different electronics, that is the only reason I swapped it out. I would buy a 906 again, just if you are looking for super smooth starts and really precise throttle control I'd go either sensored or brushed.

I've been running the hobbystar electronics in my scx10 for a little while now and I must say that I am really impressed, I did have to solder up a bec but that is pretty much a given anyway. The electronics perform really well for me, the only downside is I think I should have gotten a 17.5t motor instead of the 21.5t, wheel speed is a little faster than a 45t but maybe a touch slower than a 35t on 3s. No heat issues at all so far, I think I just found my new favorite electronics brand.
