I'm still using my set of rc alloys 102mm dogbones, have never popped out under the most extreme bashing. I will give you all the info needed to correct issue.

102mm end to end rc alloys dogbones, 2 HPI drive axles part # 86065 I think, it's the wheel axles from the savage, one side is counterclockwise threaded and the other is clockwise threaded, you can use either one you want. Also, you will need a set of 8x16x4mm bearings to give you abit more room for the wheel hex's, then you can run t-maxx, savage style wheels/tire which I have on my blazer or you can get 14 to 17 mm adapters and reuse the ofna blazer tire combo.

This works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am still on my first set of bones and we try to break stuff.

Socalbash, I know you have tried this and had no luck, I think now I must have not explained myself correctly, but if you use the above, you will have no more cva problems and I believe it makes the front stronger, as I have yet to break anything up front

how did you handle the rear, since your now runnin the 14mm up front? i had to order one more set of replacement bones, cause i dont have the $$ to afford your set-up at this time. but i will be going that route next time round.

good to see your return skyman ...

I kinda felt like ya ran off and left us hangin on the other forum.

I tried your parts recommendations ... or so i thought.

You mention "adapters" ... those savage axles on those parts are 6 mm arent they?

What adapters precisely are you referring to - to get to 17mm.

Why do the Savage units hold the bones in and the ofna stockers dont ?

Its been so long ago now - that i dont even recall what the issue was and why the HPI parts werent working, but it was a major snafu. I still have them HPI axles in my pit box ... LOL I stumbled across em this weekend.

PICTURES .... Pictures..... pictures ......

The Hpi part has a very long slot for the dogbone to slid @ in, no way the bone will come out. I used the same in the rear, 102mm bones and the same setup as the front, I wish I knew how to post pics here, you would all see what I did. The 14mm and 17 mm I refer to is the wheel hex types you can now run. You will now have a 14mm setup and if you wanted to go back to your buggy tires, you would need an adapter to increase to 17mm hex. The Hpi axles are 6mm at the wheel hex, but 8mm is the axle size, as you need 8x16x4mm bearings to do my setup, the smaller width gives me 2 mm more for space for wheel hex to fit without rubbing, you probly can use the stock bearings 8x16x5mm, but watch for rubbing of the wheel hex against the knuckles.


I had to stay off computer for awhile, bisness ya know. gotta keep everybody happy and me out of trouble!!

Needpics, send email addy and I'll show how/what I did

mail me pics!! mrpj1972@yahoo.com
pics are easy, do you have them loaded on a host somewhere? if not, the easiest i have used is photobucket.com. once you have registered with that site it has some pretty good tutorials on how to get pics to show on message boards.

speakin of cva solutions. i was showing a friend of mine the problem i have with my broken cva. at the time i also have a broken rear lower arm. he says "here, i have some extra cva's that are from a gs storm" but they look a little short. he says well your arm is already broken, so why don't you shorten the arm at the tabs. by god i think that may work!! here's a dry fit on the front before narrowing the arms.
click pics for closer look:


what do you think? to narrow, all i have to do is trim the tabs all the way around right? how is this gonna affect my handling on the track?

I have a Violator that I recently narrowed. I used CVAs from a Ravager on all 4 corners. Being narrower than my friend and sons 2 Violators, that are not narrowed, seems to help me get through the turns faster than them. I can turn sharper and faster than both of them. With the exception of being narrower, all 3 buggies are set up identically.

You could always try this route :-)











Narrowing the width on the blazer sst is not the direction you want to go - IMHO

You want that blazer gearing for sure!!! You want a big air basher or a track demon? Either way You need:

Arms - front rear upper lower

4 new CVA's

2 new center cva's

1 New extended chassis - Titanium 7075 Alum ST -

Front MBX steering knuckles -

Rear PBS uprights - all with pillow balls

Front steering tie rods -

Shock towers - graphite / CNC pair

Longer Shocks - depending on which ones you want.

Just depends on how ya wanna use it.

somewhere between the big air basher & a track demon. not so much the racer though.... just competitive. that looks like that could add up to a lot of dough. would i be better off selling the sst and picking up the x1crt?
