Make sure your setup blocks are not the front kickup, rather under the center of the chassis. Make sure the wheels are off. Push down on the chassis to make sure it's settled on the blocks. Then read the setup station settings.

well some of the diff oil leaked its was inside of the bulkhead so maybe its cause a slip the oil is covering the diff gears i could have a bit more. yea i check the setscrew it doesnt feel like the rear brakes are dragging but iwount think that would do that through. was yours doing that when u had your engine running and run it on the ground .

if the rear tire's are free wheeling there is a couple things that it could be.....either its the set screw on the pinion shaft that has backed out allowing the pinion to spin free.......the pinion itself might be blown....if the rear diff itself if free wheeling like when you spin 1 tire and they both continue to spin after you stop then you diff is 100% Dry as a bone and you need lube bad.

Hey guys, I am sure this was asked before but I searched and read through at least 30 pages of threads and did not find my answer

What parts (besides chassis) swap over from the 2.0 to 1.0 buggy?

I know if you get the chassis you can fit most of the stuff but I don't want to upgrade my chassis.

I'm pretty much interested in just the fuel tank and the radio tray, could I use 2.0 on the 1.0 chassis? what about motor mounts?

Sorry for the question, much appreciated. Thanks

the item's you want will bolt right up no problem's....for the radio tray you might need to get the 2.0 chassis guards or bust out the dremel and modify your 1.0's.

You mean the bigger rear outer hinge pins? That's a good upgrade. Also, Losi adjustable or M2C front and rear toe plates. Heat shrink condoms or similar for F&R CVD's. Ackerman plates from the 2.0 (think they will bolt right up). 2.0 radio tray if you're having trouble setting up your linkage.
