for anyone having trouble with the ball then the change to gear diff is a good one

i admit i have never understood how a ball diff works correctly

so i got the gear diff and installed just with black grease and had a run this morning after being a bit iffy on this buggy i am now really happy with it

just need to run more laps now

stock spur is really noisy though , whats the tooth count on a stock spur as i am running a 10.5 with boost on a 25 pinon and motor temp is only 35 deg C after 10 minutes , i need to gear up i think

Yeah they put out similar power even if its hot. The older blue can had more speed (according to Murfdogg Motor Works thread) but was finicky on temps. I love the new style solder tabs too on the black cans.

buying brand new everything for racing,

kit 280
receiver 40
servo ~ 80 - savox 1257
motor/esc combo you can save if you buy a hobbywing combo around 150 for 60A with a mod motor
tires/wheels foams 50 for 2 sets
batteries 100 for a couple from gens ace or hobbyking

you can get cheaper stuff of course but if you race enough you will end up replacing it as is. I would not skimp on the servo and motor ever.
