I've heard this from a lot of people by now, is this related to the new diff's or diff housings ?
The only difference I see is the thicknes of the gasket. In my case if the gasket was a bit thinner like the old one it would not have been an issue.
I'm not saying the new gasket is a problem at all I like that it is thicker it just means that you may need to look at the clearence problem a little closer

Thumbs up

So trying to make use of my time waiting for the 2.0 parts. I built my front and center diffs last night. I mentioned before that I pre-threaded the casing with a stock screw. I used hardened washers from GMK and noticed that it's really important to make sure the o-ring is seated correctly. The spider gears should not be near the top of the casing and the pins should be the same height. Once I filled the fluid (Adam Drakes' video on youtube is a good resource for that), I sealed it up and they are butter smooth. I'm really happy how they've turned out.

Hang in there bud they will be here soon. Ryan addressed this issue and is very upset about it himself. Some things are not in his or our control. It is worth the wait I can tell you that. Evolution Sports in Redlands has a kit in the shelf. If you are interested tell Louis I sent you he will take care of you!
lol, all this darkside stuff. I am glad to see that the 4x4 sc platforms are developing nice and moving forward. It is a good class and can be very fun. But the trucks in the past were meh. Hopefully this new scte is better quality then the last version.

I have also seen a few blown diffs, even in the sponsored guys trucks. But I think the diffs were revamped in the 2.0.

Cheers
From what I can finde the 22 #55 pistons are a 1.3mm hole and the AE 2 hole pistons are a 1.5mm, 1.6mm and 1.7mm. Like someone else said you would have less pack.

Anyways hahaha. The build went good just waiting on a 275mm sensor wire and paint.


(Dont forget your 275mm sensor wires everyone) I recommend TQ Wire!!!!
Atleast a 275...i had to resolder my esc cuz i wasnt gonna spend another $10 on a longer one, if i have the 300mm or so i could have turned the diff but since i didnt want to drop down more $ i just made my power wires longer so they are towards the front of the truck now with the motor wires and sensor port facing backwards and allowing the sensor wire to reach(even with a 540 motor)

Speaking of that....anyone with a Hobbywing 3556sd motor with the heat sink grooves will HAVE TO grind down more of side guards where the motor is. Got my motor in the mail yesterday and had to take some off the side guard just to install motor and depending on pinion size you could actually take more out becuz if i slide the motor out farther the heat sinks on this motor stick out and hit on the guards so i might take the motor size off again and take some more out just for future gearing options pending how much heat this new 4000kv motor puts out on 14 or 15t pinion(all i have other than 13t and not planning to use that)

I blame the new housings...when i noticed mine making noises i noticed the case was bowed up in the center by the ring gear and caused my noise but a few runs and im sure it will be gone...

Seeing the problems everyone else is having and what their opinions are so you can see what you can do or may want to do to yours and order the parts so you can have stuff like the 275mm sensor wire that some are bitching about becuz it didnt state in the manual or on the first post that there was recommended size depending on motor size

I must have had about 8 sensor wires in my box that would have worked on my truck. I don't understand why all the issues.
