most guys that buy the R, upgrade the ball joints/cups, add shock/diff socks, and the front hingepin brace (+ those balls, which are extra $10) which adds upto $60 or so... so really, its a ~$240 difference

and titanium turnbuckles (add another ~$35), sway bar if you need them (add another $35), and brace plates ($50).

On my 410R, the rear diff case is getting forced up by chassis flex or something. That ring that holds the rear diff outdrive is useless. What's up with this and what is a good solution? Anyone having this problem?

start with taking the one on the ring gear side and move it to the cup side. see how that goes, if that still isn't enough to make it rum smooth and quiet then add 0.1mm shims on the cup side until it does. Also make sure the diff pinion is on correctly with the bearings spaced as per manual.

You must be having some pretty harsh landings . I`ve done my share of bad landing and the car keeps going like nothing happened .



I don`t see why so many have diff leaking issues as well . Mine have yet to leak a drop .

Make sure the spacing between the two bearings on the bevel gear are spaced per the instructions, 2.8mm apart. When it is in the case, there should be no to very minimal back and forth movement. As for shimming the diff, make sure the bearing is seating all the way on the case side, I very lightly sanded mine so it would fit all the way. Shim it as tight as possible but still leaving a little backlash and make sure once it is all together it is smooth. I have been adding just a bit of AE black grease to the gears along with the gear grease that came with the kit, the black grease seems to help keep grease on the gears better.

Yeah, my guess is those "x-rings" pretty much suck. I will try my next build with the P5 o-rings and see what happens. Leaky diffs are quite annoying.

I have only the rear leak though but this may be in part to thinner fluid.

lil off subject but instead of creating a new thread figured why not ask this simple question here.... diffs are in and both pretty smooth now.. long story sort. i was free-reving the car in the air and all a sudden I heard a pop from the brushless 4.5 X12 LRP motor! haha now it doesnt work.... these new brushless motors can we can free-rev them in the air like the days of old brushed mods without them burning up?

Actually, everything I have read says not to do this. I mean we all do it but I am careful not to do a full rev--especially on the 8th scale brushless.

I haven't even run a full pack through the car and have experienced no big jumps or harsh jumps. The rear diff sits in the rear bulk head in a way that allows it to rock back and forth. Side to side it's solid but it can move up and down. The only thing that will stop it is that plastic ring and mine bypassed it. The car continued going but upon post run inspection I found the problem. I loosened up the screws under the shock tower, repositioned the diff and tried to get it back in the ring. I took took a medium zip tie and ran through the bulk head and over the rear diff. This should help keep the diff from rocking upwards. A friend of mine who does not own this car told me he heard about this problem. No one else has had this happen?
