Dog, what tires/inserts and traction level are you running on? This may be just a simple issue of a bump in the surface and the front end gripping hard yanking the back around.

Same issue here with the gear diff...
The Cups if the Geardiff are longer.
I dremeled a little out if the cups, there is a sharp edge
made that flat and use two .8mm shims to limit the shock compression
Those go inbetween the Spring cup and the shock body
No issue since i did that

But Ball diif is not an option for me.... bumpy High Grip carpet track running an LRP Dynamic 10 4 pole 4800KV. Ball diff does break more often then the dogbones

what exactly did you dremel? the outside edge of the outdrives? AE is sending me new outdrives but they said that two weeks ago and they are doing inventory so who knows when Ill actualyl get them.

So generally, what turn motor do people run in 2wd buggy on indoor clay tracks? And what brand motors do most recommend?

This is completely subjective to what kind of power you can finger, and how much speed your track and traction can tolerate. Anywhere between a 17.5 and a 7.5. I don't know anybody running anything faster then that. I think 8.0s and 8.5s are the most popular in mod.

That is completely ridiculous LOL! Unless you guys have a 200 ft straight and a 50 ft. triple I cant fathom ever needing that much power in a 2WD Buggy.

I actually use a reedy 7.0! It's actually smoother than the 7.5! Very happy with it. The 7.5 was really torq-y. The 7.0 smoothed it out a lot!

well, lets discuss. you will need the suspension holders, but if you dont want the conversion kit, just get the alum holders. you will need the rear tower, chassis, cradle, front clip, wing mount, battery strap (many to choose from), chassis brace and misc screws. mostly a bunch of 3x6 and 3x8mm stuff.
