The pulley may touch the front shock tower & need a little sanding. No other mods needed & no leaks . The shim washers come with the diff kit, too.

SAK-65/V2 is the one in mine. Using Ofna Diff Lok for the front diff. I
use 3Rcaing Anti wear grease in the stock rear diff, no leaks with that stuff & nice, free action.

I have the aluminum c-hubs and knuckles. For me they didn't work: I broke more with the c-hubs and they bend very easy. The knuckles don't have the option for more steering like the plastic ones do. I went with the new upgrades in plastic and haven't broke since. As a matter of I want to sell both the aluminum knuckles and c-hubs anyone interested PM me.

My apologies if this was answered elsewhere, but how do I identify which front axels I have. I just bought a new kit from tqrc so I assumed I have the most current version, but sadly i had failure at the ball end a few laps into my first round of racing this weekend. I don't even recall having any contact that I would even consider significant. Thanks in advance

The early ones had shiny stub axles. The later ones are all black.

thanks for the reply, I'll take a look later as I never really paid much attention to the that detail.

I was hoping to put a pic up but I guess I'm too new here and don't have enough posts to do so yet, but based on what was said, I believe I have an earlier version. A little disappointing since I bought the kit last week and supposedly all kits stocked since Feb are supposed to be the latest revision.. I'll work on resizing the pic and I'll try to attach it.

***Edit..pic attached***

That's the early one. I've had no problems since changing over to the newer, all black, style.

+1

--mine broke right at the center of that hour glass shape in my first race, just brushed the wall (not even a crash), and broke.

Upgraded to the newer set, no issues and about 9 heats of racing on them.

thanks for the feedback. I haven't had the chance to test out the new parts since receiving them. We'll see how it goes, although I have a feeling this car is going on the FS board soon.

Well, I finally got the chance to run at the local track with the new front cvd's. Good news, I didnt have any problems with them, Bad news, I clipped the wall and trashed my right side steering knuckle. oh well.

Im still figuring all this stuff out, and trying to learn what how different adjustments affect how the car performs. So I geuss I'll give it another go and see how it does.

Your car looks a bit pushy in the corners, have you played with the Ackerman settings to try and get a better arc in the corners?
