Got my Mi (thanks DS) and I see in the instructions that to make a solid diff just take out the diff balls, question is do I put in sandpaper like the Losi or just take the balls out?

take the diff apart. Take the diff rings,and glue them to a piece of "Header Card" then carefully cut them out, so now you have a diff ring with a cardboard ring glued to the side of it. Reassemble the diff without the diff balls and the carboard rings facing in, and you should be all set.

The Losi method will work perfect

Thanks guys!
Adrian - I'm running the Teemu chassis right now with the standard top deck. I'm just waiting until Jason cuts some of the titanium colored ones. I'll talk to him and see which top deck he was going to send down, but at any rate, I do have the standard one incase I get the solid one with the chassis. Thanks for the tip

Bring your car by our pits early this Sunday and I will go through it really fast so you can get as current a setup as possible.

Adrian - just talked to Jason and he said he's cutting the narrow deck for me and I'll still have the standard one to switch between if I need it. I'll be sure to stop over Sunday morning and thanks!!

Thanks Tony!

Front diff comes out quite easily (I hope I don't forget anything):
-undo the lower shock ball grippas and upper arm ball grippas. Also swaybar bones, if used
-remove 4 shock tower screws, shock tower drops off
-undo all 4 bolts that go into the diff mounts from above ( 2 upper deck, 2 bumper)
-undo 6 screws from underside of chassis (4 diff mounts, 2 bumper). Leave the screws of the lower (plastic) diff mount parts.
-bumper and diff mounts pretty much fall out by themselves. Now just take the diff out. You might hava to bend the upper deck slightly upwards to make things easier.
Installation is reverse of removal Get the driveaxles and belt in place when you put the diff in. All this takes 10 minutes max. Sure, it's harder than removing "quick-access" diffs found on some nitro cars, but still, it's nothing big.

Rear diff access is similar, but you also have to remove the upper deck rear screws that go to layshaft mount and motor mount.

Thanks, I am going with the spool up front so the rear I can leave for now.

Just figured how to do all this digital camera, attaching stuff. Took me about 3 hours to figure it all out.

Wow, guess I need to step up the quality of the picture a little. Lowered it so it would upload on manage attachments. I guess. Thanks for the help Jon. You gave me a little clue to do this.

I am in Australia and have a Mission S1. It's my first serious RC car. I just got into RC and picked up the kit cheap. I want to add some Alloy Diff mounts. They are cheaper online than at the hobby shop problem is Schumacher USA are cheaper than Schumacher UK and the USA don't send to Australia. Is there anywhere else online I can purchase Schumacher parts?
