Default Smart Diff in a RC8T?

Blasphemy...using SLosi parts on Associated!....phew!

Seriousley though - My buddy runs a 8T 2.0 and loves his smart diff in the center.

I know I'll need to swap out the bearings and outdrives to the AE bits. I already run a 50T spur so the gear change won't be an issue.

Will there be any other fit issues with the Losi case? My major concern is a difference in length that will cause play (front to rear) in the center bulkhead.

Has anyone swapped a Losi center diff (smart or standard) into a Associated ride?

Thanks in advance <flame suit on>

You don't need it, I wouldn't waste your time and money! The truck is awesome with 7/7/7 or 7/7/3.
