I feel your pain there. It's been frustrating and I wish I had an answer for you. Some back ordered item that I was waiting for came in last week. Just back order the parts you need and when they come instock you will be notified.

I'm using the gear diff. It works! I'm using the oil that came with the kit 7,000. But it does unload quite a bit coming out of 180 turns. Running on med bite clay.

Just wanted to drop a quick note the Penguin body came in that I posted a few pages back. Awesome quality and will post a picture when I get it painted. If you want something different than stock, don't hesitate. Shipping to me was quick considering it came across the pond.
