I'd say no since they just went thru and updated the materials and some parts on this truck making it even better. and this truck is made by TLR not Losi .... (yes I know it's the same company ).

Sticky Kicks or RC1 sauce are most popular. I like Sticky Blue or RC1 most of the time. Clean your tires and and then apply the sauce and let it soak in for 10-15 min before a run. After a few applications traction should come up quite a bit but it does work with the first application.

You should not need to use both connector holes as with good connectors all this power is still going through the same wires.

My rear diff was completely empty and seems to not be sealing. Gasket looks ok, do I need to replace it ?

That is odd. It can be tough to get the screws tight the first time. I am assuming this is a 2.0 truck? 1.0 diffs could leak over time. 2.0 with HD diffs tend to seal really well.

Thinking about racing ROAR regionals this year... I don't follow the rules that closely but as I understand it, 4 pole motors are NOT legal, correct?
If thats the case, what are my choices in the 550 can/ 2 pole market?
Using a Hobbywing SCT ESC as well.
Thanks in advance

Negative, thats the 10th scale regionals.
4x4SC is running with 8th scale down at Sundancers.
Thats all i'm going to run is ebug and SC.
Been doing some more reading and apparently some 540 4 poles are legal, figures the Hobbywing isnt.
I wonder what in the actual hell Orion is on thinking they have a 540 motor that costs $195!!
I can tell you that I won't be using that one.
Probably a Tekin Pro4
I was worried I was going to have to run a 2 pole motor and start messing with timing and boost and all that crap.
I've never used any boost in any of mine... I could already smell the burnt motors!

The race is like Oct 15th I think.
Only Turnigy Trackstar motor I see on the list is the 540 4 pole, and at $45 bucks, that might be my choice. For that price I could pick up a few if I melt one down during testing.

I would tear down the diffs and check the o-rings and then make sure you get them tight after a rebuild. Again it can be a little tough to get the screws all the way snug on the first go around.

Try better diff screws.

TRAC2523 Screws 2.5x10mm. If you strip the plastic treads try the longer TRA2526 SCREWS 2.5X12mm. Both use a larger hex wrench.

Thank you, it must be the orings cause I feel like i'm snugging the screws down enough.

If there's a rebuild kit, with the orings I'll do that.
