Has anyone else purchased the TC4 lightened steel outdrives. Well I did and it doesn't use the D ring washers for one. Plus there is no notch for the diff nut to sit in. I had to use a screw driver to get it to tighten down. When I did get it tightend down the thing binds up. One side of the outdrive has a larger diameter and I think it hits the diff gear.

The TC4 handles good and is fast, but it is such a piece of crap. There are so many things wrong with it. Granted they can be fixed but I paid good money and it should be right the first time. I think AE has a bunch of morons designing this kit. I'm so disappointed with the quality.

Scrad: The lightened steel outdrives use the same rebuild kit as the standard steel diff. The plastic outdrives are the only one that uses the "D" ring and aluminum lock nut. If you try to run the lock nut with either one of the steel diffs you'll have nothing but problems slipping the diff.

To correct this, use part number 3926 (Diff Rebuild Kit, for steel diff) along with the same diff balls and gear that came with your kit and everything should work fine.

You are right that was a B4 bar. ( hmmm. the are the same....)

"Longhorn fan" & Mr.BMI... knowing Skip, I don't think that's what he's getting at - more the ditch of the molded chassis and the move to graphite, like so many of Associated's competitors - Tamiya, Losi, HPI... Nobody's disputing BMI craftsmanship.

... or am I reading it wrong, Skipper?

I'd have to agree that Assoc. should have included a instruction sheet or given more details as to which additional items will be required for the lightened diff. change. Mainly for those that are not fimilar with AE diff's.

Other than that I have no complaints.
