Have you got the bolt and T-Nut the right wat around, if u havn't u have probably tightened it and the t-nut has lost its little wings and so can spin under load

Ahh, Yes I have it installed that right way. And all the parts and installed correctly. NOTHING is worn since I've replaced the essential items. And it's tightened. Thanks for your help though.

PAULTC4: Did you use the included diff grease when building your diff? Some guys have been known to use something else, and if it is teflon based, it WILL slip no matter what you do. Other than that, if the T-nut and spring are the right way, and the proper bearings are in the middle of the diff, and you are using the proper grease, then the only other options are, the diff rings/balls are out of spec, or you just didnt tighten it enough. Did you sand down (polish) your diff rings, like alot of oval drivers do? They are tight in tolerance, and really cant be sanded too much, or you will have the problem you stated. Remember, a diff HAS to have friction to work. The lube is NOT used in the diff simply for ring and ball protection. The compound facilitates the function of the diff. If you have calipers, measure the thickness of the diff rings, when compared to new ones out of the package... i hate to say this but i have had varying thickness diff rings come new in the same package. Good luck...

Just got my FT TC4 today and i've read all the instruction manual. On page 16 there is no length for the center turnbuckle but only "SO".... but i can't find anything for this on the different setup that are available.

Have you information on this lenght ??

Does AE make a battery brace for the Factory Team kit? Or any other manufactor?

Also does any one know of links to a set up for the FT? AE's website is a little out dated in regards to set up info.

Default Taking it slow.....

Finished sanding and sealing the CF plates.

Done with the diffs, decided to stay with the steel diffs, I compared it to the old metal diffs and it is considerable lighter by feel!

Finished installing the hinge pin mounts and arms!

Glad to know that the Losi 6degree C-hubs fit just fine in the arms! (in case I will use a spool)

QUESTION:
1) the new diffs come with bearings already instead of bushings, is there any difference if I use the bushing on one of the composite diffs as a spare?

2) In my old steel diff, i wanted to get the squat diff bearings there, but the problem is the pin holding the nut is broken and I can't get the diff loose. PS:the part holding the nut is made of brass not plastic. How can I remove it?

Any set up with a spool on a TC4?
