I have the M2C hinge pins and I use to 2 spacers that came with it, then I modifed a beveled washer (the washers for the diff in XXX models) so there wouldn't be any slop. Should I remove the extra beveled washer or not? I have heard people not getting as much traction, but I can't find the post anymore.
I've been running mine with the M2C spacers and really haven't noticed any difference in forward bite. I believe the spacers for the 2.0 should fit since Losi increased the hinge pin diameter, just can't remember to buy any.

Don't know abobut the sun gear thing. I clean/refill after no more than 1.5 gallons so the most I've ever had to do is grab it with needle nose and pull out. Knock on wood LOL.

I dont mess with the seal's...when they are that dirty i toss them and go new...for 1$ its not worth the extra hassle to do the maintenance on cheap drive train bearings....what bearing's are bothering you the most ?

Use Boca Green Seals. They are the longest lasting hands down.

Unless you figure in the time you will not be spending on maintence replacing cheap bearings. Which is worth alot IMO. The poster did ask what the best lasting bearing were not the least expensive.

Maintenance needs to be done either way.

+1. And I do figure my time is valuable. By the time I figure in solvent costs and lube costs plus my time cleaning bearings, I'm way over the $1 it would have cost me to replace with new. I still run the Losi clutch bearings, have had great luck with those. Avid everywhere else.

I have the old 8ight buggy and I just got the 2.0 chassis I do not have the rear driveshift yet but it is on its way.

So I use a extra drive shaft from an aarm, I used the small pin because the big pin would not work every thing went together nicely and it is the prefect size I was just wondering if any body has tryed it and if the small pin will stand up to the abuse. thanks.
