Stupid question time, I know everyone recommends a 275mm sensor cable, but I can't source one that length easily in the UK, but can I get away with a 250mm cable as I can get them for half the price of a US sourced 275mm, oh I'll be running a Pro4 and RX8

Being I have to take up some space in routing my wire I think you should be able to get away with a 250mm

You appear to have a rather large pin tire on the truck. Are you planning on running on astro? The only time you would want to use the DP setup from Cactus is for very high bite sugared tracks or possibly astro.

Yea on high bite Astro, it's like Velcro when you run pins/spikes

I'm interessted to hear how the setup works on high grip astro.
25mm/24mm seems to be high RE traction rolls... but lets see what you experience on your track.

Yeah, you might want it a shade lower than that for astro. I thought I heard some in the 20/21 range with it on astro.

+1 on this as well. I also run the King Headz Mount front and rear on my center diff and it gives the diff outputs much more support equating to the puck being able to wear in evenly rather than it flopping all over. I have checked the pucks after a race weekend and with the grease applied it changes maybe a thousands from where it was brand new. The grease seems to fill the micro pockets in the plastic material as well as give it lubrication against a rough surface like hard ano. Some moly based grease seems to work the best (what you use for thrust bearings and such for ball diffs). This is the stuff I use http://miponline.com/store/mip5203.html

Good luck

How do you make low ride height or shock OAL per Casper's high bite setup? Internal shock spacers? I barely run any preload at all on the springs and I'm at 25mm. Thanks!

Has anyone modified the King Headz center diff mount to allow smaller pinions to be run? The motor is touching the rear output bearing flange with a 13 tooth pinion.

I was just cleaning my truck and noticed something was off with my center CV driveshaft. I took things apart and the LOSB3578 pin is broke in half. When I tried searching for a replacement based off the part #, I am only finding the complete replacement assembly for $12.75. I was wondering if you can purchase the tiny pin alone or do you have to buy the complete assembly. If you can purchase it individually does anyone know the exact part #?

Thanks,

You can just get the coupler and cross pin.

Thanks again Casper for helping me out with part numbers. My manual doesn't break it down to that level unfortunately. Is there another reference manual that I am unaware of?

I just hate that every two days or so I am posting questions and looking for part #s for tiny screws and little pieces. I know it has to get annoying after a while.

Thanks,

Its no problem asking these questions, thats what we are all here for. The manuals always give the highest level part number just as an FYI. As far as a good resource, I would always check the following link.
