Default Worn Drivetrain Losi 8ight T 2.0

I have all the parts to rebuild the entire drivetrain on my losi but i don't want to do it prematurely since its expensive. How do you know when its time? The rear cups have alittle wear spot where the front don't have any. The pins aren't perfectly round but decent(except for front center one its getting pretty flat).

So when do you totally rebuild the drivetrain? When i do this i'll go thru every diff and replace all plastics. Basically a full rebuild. I just don't wanna do it too early. If i had to guess i have about 5 race gallons on the car. I have replaced the front center CVD once in that time. Thanks.

The pins are replaceable if the shafts are straight in vest in a chain breaker buy some extra pins (Mugen) it will save $$$ if your cups are worn replace them the pins will wear faster since they have more distance for impact. Make sure your drive train is very free no binding this will help I get many many gallons before I start change out.

Also make sure you check the pins in your center, front and hex (Wheels) in the couplers a lot of people don't check cause they are not visible I pull after each gallon replace if needed.


Also check out the Losi 8ight 2.0 thread a lot of information
