Has anyone tried the new aluminum center diff mount?

does anyone else's center diff move slightly(front & back)? I was wondering if the aluminum center diff held the center diff tighter.

The center diff has moved back & fourth in every car I have owned. I use this as an advatage. You can center the spur on the clutch bell if you shim the center diff just like you would shim the front or rear diff.

Is it worth upgrading to the FTE specs for this buggy? I've already got the X1CR when it first came out.....

Speedbump, When you shim the center diff where do you add the shims? Between the diff and the bearing or between the bearing and diff mount?
Or is there a different way I'm not thinking of?

GeneralG, the new Brakes, Shocks and Shock Towers are all worth investing in.

Between the bearing and diff mount. I cut about a 1/8" out of the shim and slipped it over the outdrive cup.

Ditto!
"GeneralG, the new Brakes, Shocks and Shock Towers are all worth investing in."

Also the only upgrade I see that is a must for the FTE is the new front upper plate they offer.

what, the stock CF one is bad or something? i haven't crashed mine yet, but it the upper plate prone to snapping?

don't forget the King Headz plate, that looks better than the Jammin' one in my opinion. good price too.

I've snapped two upper plates. I put the King's head one on mine.

The aluminum upper B block for the front is a good buy as well. I've seen a couple of the plastic ones break but it was only in very bad crashes.

I was at Leisure Hours and a Jammin went full speed into the cinder block wall. It ripped off the front wheel, broke the plastic upper b block, lower a arm, and bent the universal. When it hit the wall it looked like the entire car was destoryed. I was happy to see that the jammin held up very well.

Advantages - Stronger

Disadvantages - Binds under full travel.

Anybody find out which is the best shock boot for the big bore shocks? I am building my first 1/8 scale buggy and don't like the fact that the shocks don't come with boots to cover the shock shalf like the rest of the buggys do.

I think the Kyosho boots are the best combination of quality and cost. Fit the big bores perfectly.
