Was building my Vibe the other day and noticed a few parts that will interchange,

the clutch bell, clutch, tail drive gear, auto bearing, fan hub, collets and fan itself are all interchangable with the RJX Extreme 50.
MAJOR difference in price on these parts and they look as though they came off the same line;. save yourself some cash on these parts. The helical cut gear and pinion will interchange as well if you change out both, however the RJX main gear is 85 tooth ver 87 on the vibe.

I did not try exchanging them, just fit the RJX bell and pinion into the frame. Ill see tonight if the pinion will change and fit the JR bell or not. I am almost positive it will, only difference in the bell, is no magnet holes, on the RJX they are on the fan itself

The 85 tooth gear for the RJX 50 is a straight cut gear,so it should work with the pinion on the vibe. I have to take the clutch out of mine so i can do the gear change at the same time.

Any chance the main frames are close? Or does anyone know if the Frenzy clone frames will substitute?

That's what I thought, but was hoping there might have been some similarity. Thanks Wedge77.
