I'll address the two issues you listed...

Servo saver. Running change has been made back to 1.0 style parts so you're set.

Rear diff. Shim it correctly and run it. No problems.

And LMAO at a 1.0 even thinking about keeping up with a properly setup 2.0 with equal drivers.
That guy is just too funny. Him and TC5 must be relatives.

Not arguing. I just don't want the OP to get any false information. Its pretty obvious that he's wrong, but I just wanted to make it clear.

Thanks again for all the info.
Dont want to see it turn into a slinging match to se who can throw there pooh further.
I just want to know about the truggies listed, (because if I dont go with one of the 2 listed it WILL be a XT8)

Feedback on what has worn out and what has broken is good to know, also any "recomended" upgrade parts for strength is good to know (I am a bad driver and dont want things to break - thats why I love the XRay so much)

Alot of info on Losi stuff, come on Mugen guys (as it stands just from what I have seen at my track I like the Mugen but want to hear users thoughts)

Also looking in the for sale area there seems to be alot of Mugens up for sale as drivers are switching to Losi?

Now I run the MBX6T which does not develope slop quickly but has been prone to weak front arms. The Mugen has a few more tuning option with the pillow ball suspension. No diff problems in the Mugen just make sure they are shimmed correctly. Both are solid platforms but to me the Mugen is better all around.

what is slop??? is it another term for beat up?? thanxs

SD = Smart Diff

You usually only use the SD on a rough blown-out track were the traction is very low.

I ran a Losi 8T 2.0 last season, and tried a Mugen to see. Sold the Losi the next week....

Thanks Pyro, is that what the track in my video would be classed as?
We wet it down every 30 minutes or so.

The track looks like it's packed, but with some loose dirt on top.

That is a fair description, we only wet it down to keep dust levels down.
