I've had the car for a couple of months now and one thing for sure this car is tough, the only issue I'm having is the front and rear diffs are leaking some diff fluid, I do pack all the o-ring with grease to help but still losing some fluid, does anyone have a suggestion. thanks

Have a look at liverc playlists on youtube. Sadly both 2wd and 4wd A1 mains are missing, the rest is there.

Ordered my kit Friday afternoon and got it yesterday, would have had Monday but was holiday, LOL.

So far I definitely like how everything is bagged and clean, no parts trees to trim flashing from. I can't wait to wrap up the build in the next day or two.

Yea also around the gasket,its kind of hard to tell exactly where their leaking from, when you remove the diff from the case you can see a some fluid pooling in the bottom of the case. I seen a post from before that it might take a couple of times before it stop. If anything I would change the orings but their not available by themselves

Anyone have any clue whats going on with the KIT being back ordered? I know its the KIT the everyone wants and most sought after. But god I've been waiting for a while now to get mine from AMAIN and indoor is right around the corner. First race for indoors is coming up in October JConcepts indoor NATs and I'd really like to have it before then for testing setups. Any input would be great.

I happened to get lucky finding one at a shop, after calling quite a few stores around the U.S.

I spent about 2days calling different stores and tracks around the U.S.

Does anyone know where in south OC that has parts support for this buggy? Knowing that HPI is in Foothill Ranch you would think there would be tons of shops with parts but I can't seem to find any. They list hobby people (nothing in stock), Gyro (nothing for this buggy), and Ultimate Hobbies (closing and moving). I emailed HPI/Hot Bodies with no response.

Just don't want to have to run to ebay every time I break something.
