I told my Gf this as well and she slapped me!!! What the heck?!!

Finally committed to shortys!! ... Almost perfect centerline balance with no added weight.... rtr 1635 gm.

The next thing I'll try is fab a 4 hole esc tray and mount the esc over the battery holder screws. But that might limit me to the cab forward bodies and plus 60 grams weight on top.

It's a great change for the better running lipos and cab forward bodies.

Just bought me a DEX210 , hoping it will get here Friday and that I'll have enough time to build it for racing on Sunday.
Also got a couple of shorty packs on their way too.

Will be replacing my X6 Sq and Losi XXX CR.

I was on the fence whether to get the bfast kit for stock diff or the gear diff. Went with the ball diff. And boy the bfast feels sooo smooth compared to the geared durango diffs (had only the sc diff to compare)... Let us know what works for you though!

On a side note anyone tried rear anti roll bars yet with really soft springs?

I do run the geardiff on dirt.

But in my opinion ( and some others ) a gear diff should not be used on dirt. a ball diff gives the buggy better handeling.
a gear diff cant slip.

indoor carpet and surface like that is where a gear diff could be used.

I run the gear diff just because Im lazy in rebuilding balldiffs
