Not yet.. I've had it set up for pit videos.. It destroys tires if you give it too much throttle... When it's traveling around 50 to 60 and I give it three-quarters throttle it acts like it hits a jump just takes off into the air no Wheeling it just flies off into its own dimension.... causes severe hand trembling !!!

Here's a mild 6s run with a 12 tooth Pinion ! Professional drone footage coming soon

This is a taste of the quality videos to come.. Plus aerial 4K Drone footage

Here's an update on HR rear housing. It uses dual 15x24x5 bearings.

Any plans to sell just the center diff housing to the people who already have the axle housings?

Too bad the ring gear wasn't reversible... I would've loved to use them on another straight axle build. I wonder if it has diff bearing caps like the Vanquish? So I assume that it works with the HD gear without a Pinion mod?

Well their customer service is non-existent so I guess someone will have to bite the bullet.

Really? I haven't tried contacting them about replacement parts but I've got multiple email responses when I contacted them about making some parts for the rock rey.

Yup, two separate instances I tried contacting them and they never replied. From doing research here on RCC threads that seemed to be the norm, so I never tried again. Kudos to you if you got their ear.

You like the Rock Rey? Saw it at the nearby HobbyTown a couple months back.

Seems to be normal for them going back many years. HR has several good parts, and seems receptive to making new aftermarket stuff, but after that you're basically shooting in the dark when it comes to getting any questions answered.

Edit: 2 year Bump

Put Vanquish down bottom and noted their axle as being discontinued. Haven't been super up to date whether any newer parts have been released/cut, but it looks like there are still plenty of stock parts available in this day.

I still bust the XL out once in a while, anyone else still alive out here?
