Anyone know if HB plans to offer a better diff screw kit like they now offer as optional on their D4 buggy? With carpet season right around the corner, the diff screw is subject to alot more stress and I have found it to be the one weak link in the car. On asphalt the car/diff is killer but with the added traction of carpet, brushless motors, and tighter diff settings required, the diff screw still breaks even with all the tips and tricks posted in previous posts.

Anybody runs the eagle model motor heatsink? It is abit loose on a Novak brushless motor, would adding a thin layer of decal block the heat from transferring to the heatsink?

???

Is a diff to tight or to loose when you hold the spur gear and one back wheel fixed, and try to turn the other back wheel and it turns but is reasonably hard to turn........

or is this just right???

i specificaly wanted to know how it should feel when the diff is in a totally assembled car..


thanks......
