This is a great video from darkeclipticheart‘s youtube channel, that will introduce you to the RPM Camber Gauge and show you how to use it.

The ECX name is really making great progress in the RC world. I am starting to see them at the RC Park more and more. Quality aftermarket products are being released constantly and overall users seem very happy with whatever ECX model they get.
RPM have launched a new website. The new site is easy-to-use, it has a Make-Model search and is a nice upgrade over its reliable but dated predecessor. I really like the new look and quickly testing it out, it seems very functional. Great job by the team at RPM.

RPM Oversized Front Spindle Blocks
RPM have released Oversized Front Spindle Blocks for the ECX Boost, Circuit 2wd, Ruckus 2wd & Torment 2wd. The Oversized Front Spindle Blocks feature a larger bearing size of 5x11mm (not included). The stock bearing size is 5x10mm and RPM state “One millimeter in diameter may not seem like much but that little change nearly doubles all load and fatigue ratings over the stock bearing size! That means better performance, longer life and more time between maintenance periods.”
RPM have built a rock solid reputation over the years, based on durable, reliable and flashy upgrades, so I have no problem believing their statement and if they turn out to be wrong, I would be shocked if they didn’t make good by it.
The RPM Oversized Front Spindle Blocks for the 2wd ECX Torment, Ruckus, Circuit & Boost will be available July 30, 2014 at a MSRP of $10.95 / pair. Part# 73292
