Have you even attempted to call Losi customer service about those 3 issues before trashing the company on the net? I am sure if you called them they would fix the problem.

What are the stock shock and diff oils in the Losi 8T Race Roller?
Thanks

Nevermind, I misread the original post... Yeah sounds like the servo might be out...

Heres a great option. Right at $70

Here is an EXCELLENT throttle servo! Just a bit more than the posted price range, at $89

Use a few clutch shims on the rear pinion so the rear drive shaft seats farther into the center outdrive.

Mistakes happen, but you think maybe the shaft you installed on the front,(since it too long) is for the rear. And the shaft for the rear(since it is too short) that its actually for the front?

Don't know if this will help, but the rear center drive shafts have a small ring on the shaft to indicate it is a rear shaft. The front shafts don't have this little raised ring. Here is a pic of the buggy rear shaft. Notice the small raised indication at the left side of the pic.

a question for anyone that has used skid plates :

Im thinking of putting a skid plate on my car that has about 1.5-2 mm worn off the chassis already. If i put a new diff case on the rear, it will stick out 1-2 mm, are the skid plates hollowed out where the diff case sits? Will the diff case sticking out prevent the skid plate from sitting properly against the chassis?
