how are the diffs, on the d8t do they leak at first be honest !
and do the rear hub, bearings blow out like the 2.0 t rear hub platic hubs ?

i just know a lot, of guys use the aluminuim hubs on the rear on the 2.0 t because of that even though i never had that problem on eight-t 1.0.

no leaking diffs or bearing issues, yes bearings wear over time as normal

sweet yea i know bearings, wear over time what about diff shimming on the d8t ?

i know i hear a number, of times that you have to check the shimming on the diffs on the 2.0 t and reshimming them so they dont strip, thats just one more reason why i want to go to a diffrent brand of truggy.

next season or maybe sooner.

did you see the video of that big triple at hobby hut i told you about ?

the diff shim on D8 will last atleast 5-6 gallons before you even think about adding another shim. all you do is run 2 shims on the ring gear side. the D8 bearings are pretty much junk tho, i replaced them all at one gallon because they were failing. the plastic on HB is good and the diff cases are thick.

sweet ! yea the stock losi bearings failed at one gallon also.
the plastics are good and not worrying about the diffs i like that .

i never had a problem, with my diff on my eight-t and that doesnt use shms on the rear diff.
