I agree need to check the linkage and endpoints to make sure the servo is not binding or being overstressed. I am planning on getting a better steering servo when I get mine too. The operation manual also has detailed instructions on how to convert the diffs to use silcone oil instead of the grease. Looks like the only change is to clean the grease out and instead fill with the desired oil. The seals are already in place.

I was trying to change the tires on my 8ight RTR and could not get the wheel hexes off. Looks like the factory put CA on the wheel hexes. Are yall using CA remover to get the wheel hexes off to change tires?

Things that where visually different on the RTR

- Shock caps
- Shock towers
- Diffs are grease fill not oil filled
- Frame is stamped aluminum, not sure what grade, unlike the machine 7075 aluminum of the kit version.
- Does not include extra springs and sways bars included with kit version.
Is that all that is different?

Cheers

My lhs removed the wheels for me when I bought it. They had a hell of a time.

One of my buddies with the RTR had to use heat and vice grips on the CVDs to get his off. Didn't realize they used glue
