I'm not understanding how so many people are having problems with the diff screws. Using Losi hex drivers, I had no problems at all, without even pre-threading. I must be in the minority on this one.

Happened to me twice now already. Ordered SCTE shock shaft o-rings, instead I did the ones that were accidentally mis-packaged diff o-rings. That and another winner. Can't remember exactly what that one was, but I was still equally upset and without the proper parts I needed to race that weekend.

See the problem now??
Append a A, B, C, etc.. to indicate revisions seems pretty simple and easy for everyone to understand.

Dan this truck today with the stock setup and my mmp / 3800kv. I used the stock setup and this truck is above and beyond what I expected. I ran about 4-5 packs through it and I am very happy. Faster jumps better and turns so much sharper than my scrt10.

I lowered the ride height a bit to help with traction rolling on one of our step up turns and that was pretty much all I needed to do.

So now onto the problem:
The center diff seems like the ends where the cvd go into has ALOt of play. Like way more than normal. Gonna take it apart and see if the bearing or pin or something broke ....


Wondering if a metal front diff brace and cf diff top will stiffen it up

I love this truck! It's a quality RC vehicle. But yes, the instructions leave a lot to be desired. Still, I was able to easily figure out what went where. I too, had issues with my diff screws. Just get some steel 2.5x10mm screws.

How does lowering the droop screw effect turning?

It comes with 2.6x10mm screws, but 2.5x10mm will work just fine too. I'd guess you could even use 12mm length, but I haven't tried that. The 2.6mm are very tight going in and they're weak. The hexes seem a bit large. I kept trying different wrenches thinking I had the wrong wrench. This is probably why people keep stripping them out. I was pretty surprised at how crappy these screws are as the screws in the rest of the kit are very nice.

It's sort of difficult for our new customers trying to build this truck when they suspect that HW is missing or wrong.

And just on a side note, is there going to be any type of manual addendum to correct the mistakes? Thank goodness for Gary's pics up on FB. This manual needs some TLC. Same with the exploded view insert. It shows only three hub spacers while the manual shows 4.
can you provide a link to Gary's FB 2.0 pictures?
