I've been running them for gallons now, no problems. I'm also running the spur. I broke teeth out of 3 of the losi cb's, that's why I swithched.

KForce, you're going to want switches or soemthing like that. I prefer pink tapers, but others have been running inside jobs.

Has anyone had thier center diff go out on them? I just found out my problem with no power to the rear diff in which I thought it was a clutch issue. I found that one of the slots the spider gear fit into was stripped or notched so the gear set that drove the rear was disengaging.

I hope you guys replace your diff fluid regularly? That's the only reason besides a stripped screw, that a diff should implode like that. Or if it's so old that it just wore the gears out. But I wouldn't be concerned about that until you've run about 10 gallons through your car.

Damn, more maintenance. I've got about 11 gallons on my car now. Not once has any of the diffs leaked. I replace the fluid every 8th weekend. We used to race Fri, Sat., Sun. So 24 races basically and I'd replace the fluid. But it always looked like I had just put it in. These losi diffs are great. I was worried coming into 1/8 scale that they would be a problem area for me. Cause I lack on regular maintenance. It gets hard to keep up sometimes. No problem. Original diff gears, cases, and gaskets. I bought the Losi gaskets a loooong time back and haven't opened them yet. I'm just waiting to see how long they last. I have replaced both front and rear outer bulkheads cause of crashing. No problems with the diffs though. I don't know what dirty/burnt diff oil is supposed to look like. I assume blackish or brown. IDK.

Freefall, I buy the Mugen pins. They work perfect. It is a biatch getting the original one's out, but once you do, the mugen's go in and out very easy. And no I have never had any fly out. Have been replacing them for 5-6 friends around locally.

The Mugen pins come in two sizes, small one's for the center and longer one's for four outside hubs. Got them from Amain. 10 pins for about 5 bucks.

I use a small socket with hole just big enough for pin to slide out, put it in my vise, heat um up w/ heat gun, and press um out. you could buy a Hudy dog bone press from Stormer if you have money to burn......Amains got a bonesaver that looks good too.

This will save your dog bones and out drives from wearing out.

Carl,
I have a tool set you can use anytime you want. I use it to replace pins all the time for people.
It is the Hudy one.
Let me know and I'll meet you to get them replaced.
TEX
