I had one leaky diff out of 3. I measured everything with calipers and found the plastic was molded the same on all but the thickness of the o-rings on the leaker was slightly smaller. I have since replaced the o-rings with ones from a rebuild kit and no more leaks.

hope this helps.
Also, liberally coat the o-rings on the drive cups with black greese. Helps a lot to seal them up better.

What kind of servo saver are you guys running, and do you use the option servo plate intended for servosaver ?

If I put in an Xray servo saver, and move my servo all the way back on the servoplate, then the sterring rods from the servosaver to the steering rack bind. There simply is not enough space for the servo saver.

Is the option servosaver the solution ?

What servo are you using ? I used a Xray servo saver with KO RsONE 10, fit perfectly. Now I use the stock horn and like it a lot. Steer input is much faster and centers perfect thanany servo saver.

I'm using a Savox SG1251MG with a Tamiya heavy duty servo saver and it all lines up perfectly.

I'm running the Kimbrough 201 on asphalt but switched to the HB TCXX on for tight indoor carpet to get some more steering since the arm is the same length as the stock Schumacher servo arms.

With IIC only days away, do we have a head count for Mi5's? I know I will be bringing 3, though one is currently unopened.

I've got two for 17.5 and amateur 17.5, super stoked after last weekends high traction testing on the carpet at Lou's. Motors and batteries sucked but the chassis was very nice.

I believe I have read that Schumacher makes a u-shaped carbon fiber brace for the front and rear control arm ball-studs. I'm speaking of a brace that would mount to the top of the ball-studs and serve to strengthen their attachment. Does Schumacher make such braces? If so, what are the PNs?
