Is there a diff upgrade for the rear?
Front caster blocks, arms.
That's what i go through....and I'm running a 17.5

I'd have some castor blocks (you might want to have a 6 degree set as well as the stock 4's) & steering blocks on hand. Wouldn't hurt to have a spare set of rear hubs and a couple of arms. I haven't broken an arm in I don't know how long, but I'll go through castor blocks now and then.

My car is a bit of a bearing monster, but that might be because I hit stuff.

You can get alum outdrives for the diff.

Hye Guys just a question

Is the car suppose to be preety tight when its new as in the belts and stuff, ive got the belts set to the less amount of tension and still its preety tight for me anyway.

Also the car doesnt role as freely as i wished im guessing thats because of the belts.

The car is Brand spanking new, do they just need time to completely loosen up?

The belts are tight and dont seem to loosen much ... I have fitted a TRF416 belt (6244016) which helps.
Some people use the Yokomo belt (BD-516L).

Does anybody know if when you buy the alum outdrives for the diff. Does the thing (dog bone spring cup) that holds the nut come with it?

The belts take a while to break in , but the best thing to do is install aftemarket bearings in the car as the factory ones cause friction. www.avidrc.com has bearings for a buck a piece. I replaced every bearing in the car and that helped alot after cleaning the grease out of the bearings that the manufacturers install for lubrication.

I striped out a diff nut tonight. I think a aluminum nut there is silly. I'm kinda disappointed.
