Any ideas on how my center heavy diff case could end up out of round? Noticed wobble in drive train, thought it was the shafts, but its the diff case.

Thanks
What exactly are you snapping? Do you have a pic of this? I have never heard of anyone snapping an axles in these except for when running the aluminum ones and landing very wrong.

No. Only things I can think of would be failures. A bearing seaze could heat up the plastic and ruin the bosses.

Why would you want them? Plastic offers the same locations, and it just makes your car heavier?

There great for smooth high grip tracks and free the kit up some. Very good for loamy surfaces as well. I have never broke a plastic or had any reason for an aluminum set but they are shiney...LOL stay with the plastic for blown out or dusty bumpy tracks IMO. If they improve steering some feed back would be nice of you.

This looks to me like a rock or something got stuck in there and busted the diff case open.

I'm gonna start building my 8ight 3.0 tomorrow. Can someone recommend a good beginner setup. I looked on the tlr site at a couple setups but suspect they are more geared toward toward vets. This is my first 1/8 buggy.

I would pick one that has conditions like your local track(s). If it's too much at first then just dial down the EPAs until you are comfortable. That way your my have to hunt for a new setup. Just tweak the radio settings up some...

just use the stock setup from the manual, its actually pretty good and very neutral. The biggest thing is just don't overdrive it as they are very easy to drive to fast and cause you to think it has other setup problems.
