    From everything I’ve heard you’ll want the RPM hinge pin set.

    Had a rather large parcel today from RC Mart..... Tax free of course!



    RPM Goodies



    The Shell with the new mounting system



    Now this shell retails in the UK for £94.99, and the new mounts cost me £45ish so not cheap by any means (I actually paid more as it was $55 shipped from RC Mart. Gotta be honest, I'm glad Ive got it cause it looks great. HOWEVER, this is my shelfer body, and its a good job. Its much thinner than stock, can't see it lasting one bash without considerable damage. Also, considering its a pro finished body (Im guessing its screen printed?) I'm quite disappointed as its nowhere near perfect, these pictures will show









    Its still a million times better than I could've done, so I cracked on. Found fitting the internal mount/cage fairly hard but got there in the end

    Which gives me this. I know it looks like a walking Proline advert with the shell/Wheeels/tyres

    I only have 1 more set of RPM A-Arms, Im waiting on the fourth so decided to just do the rear end and 1 Hub. Set ups is simple. RPM Arms Upper and Lower and RPM Rear Hubs with oversized bearing on the inside. Ive broke the stock part of all these items in the past hence why I've gone for them again. There's an issue with the RPM Arms been softer and therefore flexing and allowing the stock pins to fall out. Most people use Can or RPM Threaded Pins, these were a) expensive b) in stock no where, so I bought some High Tensile 4x60mm Nut/Bolts and cut off 4mm. I got enough to do the whole X-Maxx for £3.69 posted. It also required drilling the arm out with a 4mm bit.







    1 Side down 1 to go. How cool does the X look without the bumper/Wheelie bar/Skid



    I'm off work tomorrow so may see if I can obtain the 4th set of RPM A Arms from somewhere!

    I'm genuinely staggered, these have came so fast. Hawk Shock shafts. Not Cheap, but I broke a few of the stock shafts on my old X's till I went with these. As you can see from the pics theyre much thicker. I also changed the front to captured hinge pins and added the RPM Bumper mounts whilst I had it apart



    Vs Stock


    Crying out for red allot shock caps and collars now!



    Finished



    RPM Front bumper mount is kinda boring but



    Im still waiting on a set of RPM Arms so I can do the rear left and add the RPM Oversized hub. Then I think it needs to be used and go from there? Cant seem to find the RPM arms in stock though?

    Not sure how D Hawk operate, but I pay in dollars on eBay from China, and they get to me very fast via Royal Mail with no sign of a customs label or anything to suggest they've been sent from abroad? Mostly pointless stuff here, but I decided to get the Red Alloy Shock Collars and the Red Alloy Shock Caps. Not cheap, and not necessary but I felt I needed to upgrade to the shafts as the TRX TiNi ones don't fill me with confidence. Cost me a fair bit, and I dont really like red alloy, would've preferred all black but here we are.





    I still laugh at the size of the shocks on this thing haha



    Done



    Up skirt shot
