locktite or tire glue is what I used.
hasn't happened again since.

Left Hand screws are the way to go here. They really are worth it. Thread lok is not the best for a screw in plastic.

What do you guys do to keep the diffs from leaking? Mine tend to leak randomly. I'm thinking I'm going to need new cases since the outdrives wobble just a little and I think that wobble maybe opening up a gap in the o-ring seal. I black grease the heck out of them, but they still tend to wear pretty quickly.

Replace them with the hd version and use some grease on the seals during assembly.

I use a bit of AE green slime or some transmission assembly lube on the o-ring along with the HD versions and I get no noticeable leaking...at least from my diffs.

Anybody try the JConcepts hi flow body yet? I just finished mine last night and had a hell of a time with the body post holes. Only way I could get it to fit good is to have the body sit a shade forward and overhang the front bumper. I'm guessing Nobody in the body making world has Taken the spacers on the body mounts into account yet.

I've been meaning to ask if the 1.0 body holes are in the same spot as the 2.0 because I drilled my last losi body using the template they provide and it seems a bit forward. Maybe the template is meant for the 1.0? Are u saying they spaced out the mounts on the 2.0?

The 2.0 body mounts use spacers on the towers and move the mounts about 2mm. You can use the 1.0 holes if you omit the spacers (or run them on the opposite side of the tower). If you don't run the spacers you may limit some of the upper shock mounting positions, so beware.

That is the only body I run. I have several of them. Sure it sits a bit forward, but no big deal. Just cut out the fender wells so the wheels are centered good, and allow clearance for shock travel.

I have tested almost every body out there, and these seem to be the most durable.

That's what is on Tyler's 2.0 and it flys great with no parachute affect indoors. His is forward too over hanging front bumper.

I run that JC body with great success. I used the rear body holes on the template but the front was a little off. Cut out 1 set then test the other to make sure it lines up.
