Inexpensive fix, just wondering if anyone else has experienced this kind of issue.
Check the top plate...a couple guys had a hairline crack in the top plate that would let the top pin come out....usually started to happen after a hard front end hit.

Find a few extra shims that fit inside the diffs, comes with one on each side. When you install the shim and pin over the o-ring, check to see how much play between the pin and the shim, if you can fit another shim in there, that will stop the leaking

This 1/10th scale truggy is bad ass , If your thinkin about buyin one do so it is a awsome race truck . A lil bit of tuning you can get it to turn on a dime , I think it is way more balanced with the speed control mounted on the servo and the battery pack laid down flat . When I mounted the speed control on the servo it was night and day diffrense in the way it jumped . does anybody know what spring kits work , or if ofna is planing on making a spring kit .

Default ackerman bar?

I pulled my front end to put oil in the diff and decided to measure my ackerman......if I measure it center to center of the bar where it goes thru the lock collars it is 52mm....if I measure outside length it is 42mm.

Do I have the new 54mm or old 52mm ackerman?

Ignore the TA stickers on the sides, I trimmed this Punisher lid to fit my TT.

No boiling was necessary...

What Punisher body is that and can we get a few pics of where you had to trim? I was thinking of doing just this. Thanks
