I broke a front diff cup yesterday. This thing has a one way front diff.

Is this the right diff cup for a XXX4-G+?

Or do I need to know what kind of one way I have?

for those of you that run the xxx-s one way(LOSA3245)in your xxx-4 i was woundering if you could explain the proper operation of the one-way.I bought one off of e-bay but did not come with instructions.I think i have it assembled properly but was woundring more on operation.Right now both tires do lock in forward while on thorttle but off throttle both tires spin free is this normal ? Also,on the one way hubs they have a arrow marked on them i have them pointing towards the front of the buggy is this correct ?.thanks for the help ahead of time .bert

yea ae shocks gotta be rebuilt like every 2 runs....freak that...

losi shocks are just awesome....keep a feel what a freshened up shock feels like.you either will be able to tell the difference just driving the car or by compressing it with your hand.

Guys, What is the deal with the rear diff on the the XXXG-4+?

I can't seem to get it right. It's either too loose or too tight.

If it's too loose then the front tires drag the car around.

If it's too tight then it locks up when I get off the throttle.

I have taken it apart, rebuilt and greased it several times with the same results.

Any tips or links would be greatly appreciated.

I'm trying real hard to not give up on this vehicle but it's frustrating me to death.

I wonder what BK made this shock tower out of?

I like the idea. Probably less breakage.

Mmmm...

Thats interesting, he moved the shock's in on the front for more uptravel and made extensions for the bottom for more down travel. Im gonna look into that for mine, since i run on a blown out 1/8th track.
