They look nice, very Vanquish F9-esque on the back side and the one piece design makes everything very smooth.

I hate the diff cover though. That "trying to make a square pumpkin look like a round Dana housing" thing is just bad.

I am afraid they will be too expensive.
The XYK ones for scx 10.2 cost pretty much the same as a trx 4 sports kit.


I have to be really smart spending my pension.

These look very cool. May have to kick up a scratch build for these at some point.

Love that GRC is out there doing their own thing. Such a unique housing and not just a metal copy of the stock one.

I dont see anything innovative to justify a patent.

The way they designed the c-hubs not only for better ground clearance but to also create better pan hard clearance, which is the Trxís biggest issue Iím my personal opinion. Its some nice stuff. This is all just my personal opinion. I like their stuff and itís been good to me.

It's a chinese patent from the sounds of it so it holds water like a callander in the real world.

The lower shock mount being in the c-hubs also creates a lot of stability. No one else is doin this.

Callanders? Sweet!



I dug for a while and can't find them now but someone was making portal box adapters for the rear with adjustable shock mounts and c hubs for the front with multiple shock mounts too. I'll be dipped if I can find them now of course.

Chinese patents... I wonder how those work. Do products need to be exact copies to get a patent in China?

I like the one piece housings, the shock mount options and the panhard mount options and more clearance around the c-hubs, but the roundish center section machined area no. Haven't had any problems with my stock Traxxas axles, added some Metal Fab by Reed brass portal covers up front and LURC black steel covers rear and all good. I'll pass on these.
