Got the XL frameset to replace the grey one that broke last week. Went to put in the tail drive gear and bearings and had to thin down some of the plastic as the gear and the pulley were "rubbing" on the frame. Turns out the black frame is a tiny bit thicker around the bearing slots and in one other place the main gear has a little wobble to it and will rub on the back portion of the frame. The frame has some extra plastic in it there also and had to thin it some.

Just my $.02

I just noticed the difference in the gray and black plastic frame a couple of days ago too.

I wanted to build up a 3 cell t-rex from mostly spares and I grabbed the black frames and started hacking it up to do the DIY CCPM mod and realized the plastic was all different than the ones I'd done previously with the gray plastic. the black was definitely sturdier but I had to grab a gray set to do the mod. The tail boom support area was quite a bit stiffer on the black version and the front had been changed just enough my hack and saw patterns wouldn't work to mount the front two servos.

Oh well, gray is fine by me. I have two carbon framed t-rexes but I still like the plastic, it's the easiest to work on as long as decent screws and bolts are used. It feels good, like an old shoe.

It does that with the XL parts too, at least mine did. I figured it was just some flash from the molding, and it was very easy to trim off.
