I have the ver 3 spool up front & the derlin diff at the back.

and i have the mip purple cvd's that come with the WCE edition.

everything fits sort of.....

the only thing that bugs me is i have to take on and off the plastic ring on the derlin outdrives to get the dog bone in and out,

is this normal?

as to get them on and off on the car is a real pain in the.......

On the pro 4 it was never that hard to get those rings off, mine are usually mangled on the cyclone.

If you are really lucky you can pull the wheels and hex hubs off and slide out the uni and at the right angle i think you can get then take the uni out without taking the ring off. But thats quite a pain to do as well.

From a performance perspective the aluminium outdrives should be better but the blades are expensive. Just make sure you change the blades aka. the plastic C thingys aka. i think HB refer to them as diff adapters (or reverse them) before they wear out. Once you get wear on the aluminium outdrives the blades wear out faster (and unfortunately they are not cheap and sometimes very hard to get).
XRay blades will apparently fit as well if you are looking for something.

on my old losi xxx-s one way it had a piece of paper with instructions that came with it, and it said to slightly grind down or file the pins on the dogbone so that it would fit in the outdrive expansion rings with out needing to be put on an angle.

I was concidering doing this and making sure i only take off a very small amount.


I had the alum diff halfs (outdrives) but they weared out very fast i thought.
i even had 2 sets and ran one with greese and one with out, but they both weared very fast, another racer at my track reckons that the derlin outdrives last heaps longer, so i am going to give that a go.

Are you sure you put the little plastic blades on the universals so that the metal on the universals wasnt rubbing on the aluminium outdrives?

It is possible to get the driveshafts out of the delrin diff without taking the rings off. You just have to compress the suspension fully with the driveshaft pin pointing vertical. I never had to take the rings off except to get the bearings off the outdrives!

For those of you running a platinum 4800 - how are you secureing the battery in the chasis?

I tape mine in and am having some spillage issues, I am sure that if I stay off the pipes that it would stay just fine with tape alone but I am not that good.

I am going to try the nexus weights. Do you guys have suggestions for a more dense weight to balance the car out?

I use the TrakPower, so pretty much same size

I double tape my batts in (meaning I get one thing of tape on, and then another) and it REALLY keeps in the batts, they dont even move at all, and since its doubled up, it wont rip You just need good tape

Use some spare plastic servo posts, put 2 down the centre where the exiting holes are to keep the pack straight, and drill a hole for a 3rd on infront of the battery pack. These will stop the pack from moving around and relieve the stress on the tape in a crash, worked a treat for me.
