Don't know if this is dumb question but what would the advantage of a gear diff be over a ball diff?

If its good, the advantage would be you could go forever between rebuilds, and that would be just changing fluid, instead of replacing rings & balls. Also dont have to worry about break in, and a gear diff shouldnt ever slip.

Downside is you lose external adjustability, and it weighs a bit more than a ball diff

Thanks for the reply. Are there any off/on power differences in traction ( Basically will it turn differently )

Again sorry if i sound stupid but my experience with gear diffs is rather non existent, last time i used one was on my TL01

EDIT: Just clicked that you can use different gear oils would give the similar effect of tightening/loostening the diff.

Default Cleaning Bearings

Can anyone assist me with cleaning my bearings. How should I go about cleaning the bearings in my 416X? If it's necessary to take the bearing apart, how is it done? I have tried to remove the metal shields on some bearings with mixed success. Typically, I can get them apart, but not back together.

I was wanting to know what the max height is for a li-po to fit in the 416WE or X are they the same?


Does anyone know if a IP 5600 50C With Corraly plugs will fit in the WE or X, with out any mods?

I use an IP 5600 and I don't think that it will fit under the upper chassis plate. I have my LiPo packs off-set on the chassis so it doesn't need to fit under the upper plate. Having it off-set also help with chassis balance.

5000s fit without issue, if mounting them under the top deck you need to make an L shaped plug but that's pretty simple, otherwise you can do what many of us do and just mount them offset a bit. 5600s also fit under the top deck but only by the width of a piece of paper. There are heaps of lipo trays around, e.g. demon, bitty design

Larry,
I use an RPM Bearing Blaster. It works great at getting grease/crud out of bearings. If you find they still arent free after a cleaning, then its time to replace them

Exotek makes an awesome chassis kit that secures the lipo, offsets the lipo for better balance,narower for less chassis side scrub and cures the topdeck battery interferrence issue.
