Is a 280mm sensor wire long enough?
Most team drivers run the Spektrum S6040. A good choice for this truck

280 is plenty long.

I really like the reedy (AE) flat sensor wire. It really plugs in the sensor port and never had one coming off. Traded all my tekin sensor wire. I used the 270mm, fits perfectly.

If you can, use a dremel to cut a slit in the screw and use a flathead to back them out. At least you'll be able to save the diff case. Prethreading the cases have worked best for me.

Sweet! 1 set ordered and coming my way. Thanks to Avid for bringing this to market and so quickly. I try to avoid using CA as mush possible.

Built up my 2nd kit last night... well part of it.

Diff screws are still soft, but no real issue if you are patient and cautious. I find that a star tip #7 helps if you are starting to round the screws.

Just be careful and you should have no problems!

Exclamation What's wrong with this picture?

At first I couldn't figure out why the diff wouldn't mesh well. Calling HH CS now, just thought I'd share.

Looks like the o-ring groove is missing?
