I read about that on ebay. I saw a roller of this truck and the seller mentioned that issue so he bought the upgrade cvd center driveshaft sets.

I ordered them so I would have them.

Did you pull the diff or driveshafts at some point? I believe there is a little rubber doughnut in the cups. If that is gone there is probably too much play in there and they will fall out.

See part 130 here: http://www.towerhobbies.com/manuals/...00_manual3.pdf

OK so happy to announce the cutback with the optinal spur and 17t pinion is night and day from stock. I lost the o ring for the center rear driveshaft so i cut some nitro line to use as the o ring I left no play in the driveshaft I installed 17t pinion and optinal spur it gained at least 10 MPh it doesn't nose dive anymore and I can control the flight wthe throttle I did nothing to the suspension. Nose dive issue fixed

That is awesome news.

I'll mess more with my cutback this weekend.

Merry Christmas, all.

Yeah I know we just have 2s and 4s packs but 32 is a lot faster still than the stock spur and pinion plus the nose dive issue is fixed. Have the optimal spur and 17 pinion solved anyone else's issue ? Cause it may have been all the play in the rear center drive shaft I took out

I remember when I had my slash 4x4 ultimate edition, the center driveshaft had way to much play in it. Drove me crazy.

I didn't even try it on the original gearing but between 40 wt in the shocks and the 54/17 I don't nose dive if i stay on the gas when jumping.

All u have to do is cut a piece of nitro line it fits right in there to take the play out and I hold the gas I land on the back end it acts like a normal sct in the air now by controlling the landing with the throttle/brakes
