Disassemble and have someone with experience help.

The gear diff is the best choice if running on extreme high traction or carpet.

On clay the ball diff's performance is better by offering more traction.


BTW

No need for ceramic thrust , steel performs the same and has the same durability.

But you will need ceramic diff balls for their performance & extra durability.
I took it apart several times, flipped the rings, no dice. Notchy. I've built ball diff's many times. Never had this problem. I'm guessing one or more of the balls are defective.

What's possibly a good gearing for a 8.5?
In my 17.5 I run a 72-32-33

Has anybody had issues with their motor shaft hitting the gear cover? I have a Murf Dog synergy and the shaft will not allow the cover to go on. It has worked fine in anything else I have tried. Just curious if others are experiencing the same.

It is known that some motors with longer shafts hit the gear cover. I've heard of some issues with novaks as well. You could dremel the cover a little or heat it up and push it out a bit, i think some have dremeled the shaft down as well but i wouldnt want to do that.

Default finished the roller...

No issues whatsoever and no missing parts. Good luck maybe. $250.00? Buy two at that price.

Our local track is going to get a new layout soon, with the point being the traction isn't as high as it can be.

I witnessed Chad Due, break the track record after running his second pack through the car. Strange thing is, he didn't appear to be driving on edge at all. I suspect that there is a ton left in the car yet.

I'm thinking the car works.

Thumbs up

Ran my B5M Wednsday night at IERC and it works well right out of the box. Only made minor changes to ride hight and camber and it just got better. So far I love the car.

Cheers, good to know. I'll pinch the spacers from my b4.1, save wasting rubber or acetone-ing them off

Silly question, but does the reedy motor fit inside the gear cover without modding? I would assume yes, because I am sure AE did their testing with the reedy, lol. but thought I would ask

Yes the reedy fits. Most motors fit fine, but there are a few that have a longer shaft.

I put a Reedy Sonic Mach 2 10.5t in mine, fit perfectly!

This kit was a DREAM to build! Dare I say "Kyosho" quality!
Diff is beautiful and smooth (but I did use ceramic balls and Avid caged cermaic thrust). Shocks are perfect! Thanks AE for a QUALITY kit that was cheap as well!
Granted it was a RM kit I buit. Cant get a MM kit...

Then you suck at building diffs because something like 10,000 B4 and B5 diffs haven't had your issue. Sheesh.

I used a very small amount of loctite on these 2 areas as well, and have had zero issues of anything coming loose, let alone off. I hadn't driven RC in nearly a year, so my car got some durability testing during my first handful of packs through it

Driving skills came back pretty quickly though. I was really having a good time by about my 4th or 5th pack.
