I dunno if I am just giving it too much gas. running 79/21 (i think) and a lot of boost on my esc I'm wondering if its simply just too much power for the lift test and am in fact blowing it out. regardless... one small chirp won't kill anything (if you say it does I think ill live for a few runs and then do another rebuild, and i tightened it about 1/8 turn after that. who knows maybe I'm not exactly sure what the chirp actually sounds like.

Thanks for everyone's help as always. You guys are a great resource and have taught me a ton in the last few weeks. Always appreciated.
I run a stock 17.5 blinky with a slipper eliminator. I make sure my diff is plenty tight then just cruise around for 5 minutes and check to see if it is still nice and tight. Always forget to check tightness by putting 2 hex wrenches in outdrives and trying to turn diff gear (before diff is installed into tranny). Once you get to know what a properly adjusted diff feels like, you can stop worrying about slipping your diff. I had a factory team driver check mine several months ago and he said it was way loose and tightened it for me. I made sure to feel how tight it was for future reference. I also do a break in of the diff if I tighten it... hold one tire and semi slow speed on the radio for a minute or so then the same procedure on the other tire. Not a bad thing to do every once in awhile as well to keep your diff as smooth as possible.

there has been alot of feedback on this subject. from what everyone has been saying is that the flats smooth out the steering and the gulls are a bit twitchy. try them both.

Do you guys have anything good for transportation? Its getting to the point where I need a better alternative to a toolbox and carrying my car and radio.

That JConcepts 2 drawer bag looks perfect but seems to be out of stock anywhere else, and I haven't seen anything that really compares to the functionality of that.

lol, I picked up a moble tool box from home depot....I got all of my stuff in and I was so excited.....until I realized it was to big and heavy to load into my van, lol. So I am going to take it back. I think I need to take less shit to the track. I am going to continue to use plastic totes and a hand cart for now.


Tonight I plan to look at my crap and figure out what I really need. The issue is packaging the radio,charger and power supply in a compact manner. right now the charger and PSU are in a gun case.

i have been thinking about getting away from my hauler bag and trying to find a cheap version of the ogio 9800 (no doubt the best).

the "ful" one looks pretty good ($90 @ ebags)

the aka bag looks like a good alternative as well.

but at that price...

the proline bag looks good too (the non-blader wheels would be nice for stability)

lol, no mater what I do, I need less crap. I take EVERYTHING. heat gun, all my tires, all spare parts (4 AE 1/10th kits boxes), 3 cars, fans, cleaning supplies, oils and so on. Some shit just needs to stay at home, lol. A big race, sure take it all. club racing? I should just take one set of tires, only spare parts that are likely to break (arms, towers), if i bleed off my shocks at home, I wont need shock oils. I almost never bleed off my shocks at club racing.

This is what I bought last night, but I am returning it. It seems to be well built, but too heavy fully loaded. IMO.

this one looks like it might be a more reasonable size, lol

The nice thing about the real Ogio is that I don't worry about my stuff when I fly and I don't worry about the bags when I lug it over gravel and such getting to the track, it's truly heavy duty. I question if that would be the case on a knock off.

I use the racers edge hauler bag, holds a ton of stuff and rolls nicely.

I almost got the AKA bag for all my tires in one spot but never pulled the trigger. Maybe Christmas.
