100% Losi Buggy front diff....the Flanged bearings and the lightened out drives give it away.

the pinion is the larger of the 2 so its buggy.

Ya I run the flex chassis and it is flexing to the point it breaks batt trays and other parts. So I will switch to the 2.0 chassis and go from there.

The 2.0 has a flex chassis also. I think they are the same design. Or do you mean the regular buggy chassis?
The newer version is black were the old flex chassis is a hard anodized color with silver machined spots.

Well yeah it is. But if you want to have less flex you need the regular 8ight 1.0 chassis. I think thats what Im going to try.

With the rear motor brace it seems all that flex and upward stress is being put on the 3mm bolts on the Neu's. Doesnt seem good.

Im gonna raise my diff/motor mount up or get the stiff chassis. Even with 4mm bolts on the motor still seems like a lot of impact for it so soak up.

Yeah, but it also seems it was designed for the nitro setup.

Spees_Freak,

Are u running the aluminum chassis supports. That will eliminate some of the chassis flex.

Is your motor hitting the chassis also? I know it aint the motor mount flexing because I can hold the car and almost get the chassis to hit the motor by flexing it. I can almost get the rear driveshaft to pop out.
