Could be a number of things as some have said.If its only the center? Go get new diff cups.I have had some that were a little warped.Go spend the 9 bucks its worth it!Also I like to use Mugen o rings and shims in my diffs with mobil one red synthetic grease.Coat the oring,the groove in the shaft,a little will squirt out jst wipe it off after assy.Only fill diffs to the top of the cross pins,spin the outdrive to let it settle in and fill till its just covering the pins!!
Cheers!

You can get them direct at panthertires.com as well.

Tell your local shop to carry them!

LOL Casper, you do not know our LHS owner, he does not carry any Associated or Losi stuff only Traxxas because he thinks they are superior to TLR and Ass. And thanks for your help.

not that they think Traxxas is superior. but they won't stock TLR or Associated or any other brand due to the fact theres not a big enough "market" in our area for racing kits. They used to support the local racers but that was years ago.

Traxxas is the money maker hands down. Racers are always looking for a "deal" or whatever. Bashers break stuff and are happy to pay for it

He sells predominantly Traxxas because that's where the money is. I would do exactly the same if I was running a LHS.

Ok Traxxas is where the money is at, so sell it, but we also have a local dirt oval track that has been there for years, and they race Custom Works sprints, and late models, and some people have even run losi trucks/ buggies converted into sprint cars, and they will not keep replacement parts on hand to support local racers, so to me if your not going to support the local racers then why should they support the LHS.

Not to start a rumor.... but the SCTE 2.0 kit is on backorder through the holidays and isn't listed to return until Late Feb 2015 or March 2015 (depending on the sight). Something similar happened to the 22SCT before the 2.0 was released.

Is there a new truck on the horizon? or is the TLR plant in buffalo NY?

I was just thinking the same thing. The truck is almost 2 years old and would be next in rotation for a new version.
