That's the only problem I see with the vehicle.
the L shaped wrench doesnt work?

i found out that if i'm slow and careful i can loosen and tighten the 2 screws just fine with it...

If you have a set of old school L wrenches they are the ticket.

Or just remove the 5 screws holding the motor mount + center diff from the car and complete your motor gear swap outside of the chassis altogether.

Yes you need loctite, every set screw and every screw without a locking nut should have loctite,on setscrews for pinion,drive cups,I use red and just use the tip of my soldering iron to heat it up to loosen the set screw

Default Brushless Price

With China cutting Rare Earth exports (read neodymium magnet materials) by 35% Castle prices have sky rocketed. My MMM2200 went up $100 locally last week. Anyone else seeing the same?

Default Steering

Ok, I had a chance to give the car some time on a track, albeit small track...

Does this car suffer in general from the lack of off power steering?
