Got my goodies from A-main today. Time to build my spare diff it looks like. Also replace the servo horn after last night

Plastic side plates are in, alloy is out! I think I might even get rid of the carbon brace in back and go to plastic.

Now if GrapeJuice would design a new track layout I might be happy

It's my job to give Danger a hard time. Him and I are the minority here in CO against a bunch of nitro huffing morons.

Ha-haa! Do you thin MHOR will be rebuilding the track soon? I like it but was just curious on the frequency which they change the track.

I need to have a spare diff on tap I believe but so far so good with the P5 o-rings.

Can someone explain the rear diff twisting and popping out the center rear cvd?

I've seen a few with zip-ties and heard about flex a few times. I'm just wondering what's up, design-wise, and what I can do to avoid or prevent it from happening when I get mine.

The the big weight makes a huge difference in the rear. No need for these 1* hubs now. I just need to get my diffs to stop leaking.

All you need to do is make sure the drive line is nice and loose. Grab the front and rear drive shafts before you clamp in the spur gear and give them a few turns back and forth to make sure they feel nice and loose. If not they will get hot enough to melt through the diff case and collar.

If you build the car correctly=no problems. I have not had a single issue with my car.

i dont get the diff case prob. can someone explain. the only heat ive got in mine was the rear output shaft on my rear diff. was warm to the touch (on the back of my fingers where the skin is thin) but only when i was low on diff fluid. stupid x-rings! my kit is a 2009 spec and so far no problems what so ever w/ the 1.5mm driveline, but it was built right, and im not running a 5t motor. 8.5t seem plenty for any indoor track, and im not even running any timing.

Gotcha...that explains the twisting diff thing.
  • Kyosho P5 o-rings in the diff for no leaks.
  • Roll the driveshafts and check for binding...often.
