interesting, I have mine flipped around , I'll have to change that around but I swear I saw it on kody numedahls setup

Has anyone used one of the super shorty packs? I think they are 2600mah and half the size of a regular short pack? I don't have any packs yet for 17.5 buggy.

is there a post somewhere on how often to rebuild the diff? I have three race weekends on mine, wondering how much longer before it needs some maintenance...

When it begins to feel gritty or notchy. If it's smooth then no need to rebuild.

Wanting to try a square pack?
Mid traction track ,dirt. Iwant to see if the extra weight from battery can help with traction. What are your thoughts on the issue?

I didnt like it. So far the only car I like the square in is the sc5m. Otherwise the car just feels heavy and sluggish. If you have a buddy that has one you can try for a few laps, cool. do it.

You really shouldn't have to rebuild your diff too often. If you use good parts and break your diff in it could/should last a long time.....months with a 17.5. Like a previous poster mentioned, its time to rebuild if it starts to feel rough or you cant stop it from barking. I've found that most of the time its the thrust bearing that fails. I highly recommend using a quality caged thrust bearing like an Avid or Schelle.

I don't have a square pack but have tried a saddle pack which is the same size. I prefer the shorty as the ability to shift it forward or back is more of a tuning advantage than the added weight of the big pack.

What about one of the new super shorty packs. They are only about 2600mah but that should be fine for 17.5 .
