Default XXX-T

im new to electric off road and had a setup question. when looking at the xxx-t setup sheet they talk about number of washer used, but not how big the washers are (.5mm, 1mm, etc), could somebody help me out here?
thanks!

They are standard #4 Losi gold washers. They are 0.030" thick, which is @0.75mm.

I also have a question on the xxx-t didn't want to start a new thread. my son just bought one as a roller, we added an orion 10*1 turn brushed moter and sc. it has so much torq it's spinning the diff loose. my question is there a serton direction the diff mounts in the tranny or do I have other problems?
I looked at the diagram on losi.com but if someone has a better pic of the diff assembly it might help. thanx for any suggestions

The diff screw needs to be on the opposite side of the slipper. That way you can put a hex driver or a small flathead screwdriver in the outdrive and hold the screw in place so you can tighten the diff. Also, when you put your thrust bearing in, look at the two washers very closely. One has a slightly smaller hole in it than the other one. The one with smaller hole always goes on the diff screw first.

If the screw is backing out it's likely that the thrust bearing (tiny ball set under the screw head) is either shot or full of grit. I've also gotten grease on the screw threads and had it back out because it can't be held by the locknut.

Try loosening the slipper some so the brunt of the torque isn't transferred directly to the diff.

Also a single wind motor has a lot of torque which sometimes isn`t good in a 2wd .
