Yes, all three diff cups are the same.

I'm not sure about a pull start, but I used a tiger drive starter on mine (Hellfire SS Kit) when I first put it together. The tiger drive backplate had a fair bit of depth to it, about the same as a pull start, so I would assume that a pull start would work.

@Tony443
I whoult drive it with the original diffs (thats personal) when they are assembled ok they last very well. (no argeu about this its my opinion).
The engine mount is fine fore a engine whith a pull start (In my case anyway STS D30M).

@Madhacker
Today I have been driving with my teammate and we both agreed the servo saver is there to stay.
We where more concentrated on dryving reather then stirring. Whitout the mods U posted. So I think it will please U a lot.
I am ownly trying to get U eager to driving it I want your opinion can hardly wait

soup54....Im running a Mach 427 (.26) from an LST2. I've been runnning it for 6-8 weeks now. Using a JP-1 pipe on it. Starts easy, holds a tune well . Im running BIG tires, 40 series prolines and the motor has more than enough torque to drive them. For an inexpensive motor i think you'll like it.

The engine has done fine but its hard to find a tune. But when its tuned its a gread mill.
Its like I posted my spare because it is at the end of its lifespan. I have run about 20 l she needs a pince.
It was my first mill I ever ran in and I did not do the best job. So I am happy it has come this far.

Hellsavage-- the sts d30m version 2 is still in my FLM 1.5" extended and slamed (dog bones level with arms) Savage LE, I'm haveing too much fun poping wheelies with that set up to put it into the hellfire!!

So I bought a mach 28 for the hellfire and am breaking it in today, seems to have some pretty good power so far---enough to find the pressure cracks in the front diff from a major crash after my fail safe failed (pretty ironic!!!).

Got the new gears and alum. cases and shims on the way, I hope to have it all here and put together before next weekend!

Fast Racing-- I almost bought the mach 427 but found the mach 28 for @ $32.00 cheaper and so far I'm happy with it, well its a little soon to tell-I'm only on the 5th heat cycle and I thought I'd give the nieghbors a rest from the noise since it is Sunday!

hellsavage-- on your sts d30m check your head shims, if your running 30% nitro use 1 silver shim, if useing 20% nitro use 1 silver and 1 copper shim.

This might help you get some of your compression/ pinch back, some of the first
d30m's produced came with too many head shims causeing weak compression after awhile.

On the holding a tune part I have found on my d30m that the o-rings in the carb needles were not sealing good, so I used some Team Associated "GREEN SLIME" all around and on the o-rings and that helped me get a better seal hince a better tune.

I hope this helps you out some!! Good Luck!!!

@Soup54
Thanks for the info but as I stated its my spare at this time.
I hope to find a good deal on a C6BB so I have 2 highend engines whith differend caracteristics to fit any track.
Until that time the STS is my spare.

Hello there everyone. I had a chance to take the truck to the track tonight for practice. The verdict on the bronze servo saver... I like it! It works smoothly, and allows for a stiffer spring to be used for more positive action without the servo saver becoming "sticky". The additional weight in no way effects the handling or jumping of the Hellfire. I would buy this part.

Thanks a bunch Hellsavage!
