I'm having big glitching problems with my 8T. I have narrowed it down to the center diff. With both front and rear drive shafts off and engine removed, radio on, all I have to do is turn the center diff for glitching, seems like one certain spot in the spin. Have replaced both servos, receiver and battery. Has anyone had this issue?

I know a lot of people don't run the on/off switch because of problems. Not sure what type of probs though. Have you checked this out yet? try it and post back.

Glad to help. You just have to remember to unplug you battery when not in use if you don't use a switch.

Not much is needed. A quick change engine mount will be great for clutch tuning or engine swapping. And aluminum steering servo horn. The plastic insert tends to strip out. Also depends on what you have already. Do you have engine, pipe, electronics? Some tires for your track/tracks. A good set of hex end wrenches. These are set up really great out of the box. I have upgraded a few other things from my experience with the buggy. But it's mostly over kill. Oh, and maybe the 3T3A rear toe plate for tuning.

the aluminum bearing inserts for the rear diff are pretty nice and really important for the truggy. i have seen several guys tear out the rear ring and pinion when the plastic bearing inserts get some wear and let the ring/pinion mesh change while running. cheap insurance.

I can't exactly remember. Have to look when I get home. Thinking......it's like 1372 or 1377?!?!?!?! Are the serial number stickers easily transferable to a new mud guard. The truggy class here gets pretty rough, and some guys have had to replace their mudguards. And not just on the T's. Mugen, Jammin, Ofna. sometimes it looks more like a demolition derby. lol

Hey Ghost, I've looked several times for the servo tops. A few guys here want some too. I can't find them in stock. I keep looking though. They'll be back in stock someday. I am happy I got mine for my buggy and truggy. I noticed a different feel with these being the only change. But I did not test a new plastic one vs. the alum. one.

Default Air filter oil

What do you guys use for air filter oil and do you know what it really is I mean is it just a low viscosity oil say 10Wt or a 20WT trans oil, air tool oil? I am having trouble giving the LHS $5.99 for 3 oz when I can buy a quart at Pep nuts for $1.

I bought a bottle from a motorcycle shop, cost maybe $10 or so and will probably last 5 years or so.
