I am still waiting on my LRP 2.8 to come in so I havenít started building my SS kit yet. But I was wondering if you could give me a run down of the parts needed for the diff mod. Sounds like it would be worth buying the parts before I assemble the kit. Thanks

you will need 3 of these to do all of your diffs, and use the spider gears from the ss kit

http://www.smfstore.com/product_info...oducts_id=1372

Or you can find some others above in thread, but these are the least expensive and come with steel holders for the spider gears and shims for the diff

Yup, these ones are innexpensive, and good... I can vouch for that.

Update on Hellfire breakage/durability...

I was out bashing the other day... (our track isn't done being built yet for this race season)... and I lawn darted the Hellfire onto a rather large rock after botching a jump... The crash bent one of the front shock shafts.

In a normal race situation, this wouldn't have happened, LOL, I don't know of too many tracks with large rocks! Hahaha. So, I'm not sure if this is a weakness or not, but it happened, so I posted it.

Found this on ebay and was wondering if it was a good investment?
Would it be strong enough?...or is the stock ss pieces a better choice?

CF would be lighter but how strong is it really?

I also found som 7075 alum towers for $10.00 a pop (considering I've seen them everywhere else for at least $25.00 a piece) so I couldn't resist to haveing spares!!

found these alum diff cases for a great deal too

I wouldn't use the carbon fiber shock towers, but the upper deck I would. The machined 7075 aluminum shock towers that come with the SS kit would be stronger and less flexible.

I've been finding that parts for the Hellfire are available for cheap too... it's actually kinda nice! I just got (for spare parts) a complete center diff/brakes/spur assy, shock standoffs and bushings, wheel bearing set, and center universals off ebay for $14.47 US (not including shipping).

I have been following this thread. I too found the bargin price on the SS kit irresistable. My son and i have been racing savages for 2 years and wanted to try a truggy. We have yet to race the hellfire, but have had it at the track twice. First outing went well till i had to rob servo from the hellfire to keep one of the savages going.......the second outing broke the arm of the servo saver where it connects to the link to the servo. Prolly my fault tho as i had the servo saver set a little tighter than the instructions called for. I really appreciate the info being posted here. thx to all the contributors

Just don't forget to post your experiences too!

I have noticed that I have more steereing to the left than to the right (turns tighter to the left) any suggestions on a fix? Or have you guys noticed the same thing? Note--the epa's are set correctly and the servo is centered.

Nope, I haven't noticed that.

So those diff cups fit with no mods to the case right. If so then Im ordering a set of 3. This thread is what tip the scale for me to get the hellfire ss. Thanks for the great build up.
