Hi All,

how many batt packs do you expect to go through before you have to start thinking about rebuilding the diffs?

I mainly run on a softish clay track.

thanks,

When its wet, and muddy, youll need a larger more spaced pin, i would think. Like a PL blockade.
HI,

was able to try the pl Blockade and also the Cityblocks. both were good on the medium muddy conditions during the weekend.

thanks for the input

Hey guys, I dont know who else to ask. I bought a Losi 8T E 1.0 yo play with and now the body is trashed. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement body that will fit my 1.0 ?

Use imgur instead of Photobucket to upload and embed your pics. Or you can use the forum picture upload function.

I know some racers use low kV / high voltage but can our diffs hold up to a high kV / high voltage setup? I can't find the post but someone said Horizon said no.

I'm wanting to run 6S / 2200kV but since the truggy was designed for racing and not bashing I'm not sure how it will hold up.


Edit: from horizon;

"Thank you for contacting Horizon Hobby.

It is only recommended that you run a 4S battery."

I run 6s when I run on the oval track with the 1/5th scale trucks. It's the only way to keep up. The truck handles it just fine. I have the mmm with the 2200kv motor and a 13 tooth pinion

I think they say no 6S with high kV to cover warranty issues dealing with diffs. Who knows but I upgraded anyway so we'll see how the diffs hold up.
Waiting for FedEx to deliver my 6S lipo from SMC. Hopefully I can run this by Saturday.
