Here's how i get into the diffs..
Front diff:
Top plate - unscrew the two screws nearest shock tower just enough so that you can remove the plastic spacer that they hold.
Shock tower - unscrew all screws that go into the diff.
Bottom - unscrew all screws that go into the diff.
Unscrew the holders for the sway bar.

Then just slide the diff out.

Rear diff:
Remove bottom screws and take off the entire rear, and remove any screws that goes into the diff.

Hey thanks!!
I really appreciate you helping me out with my question.
I think that the noise I'm hearing is coming from the ring and pinion not being tight enough in one of the diffs. I will post what I find out.
Thanks again.

the stock grease on the bevel gear/pinion gear should be fine. If anything you'd want to remove some of it since losi put gobs and gobs of it on there lol

Does anyone have any info on part LOSB3542? Its backordered everywhere and I am needing to replace mine. My outdrives are getting pretty loose.


Just curious, does anyone make higher quality outdrive bushings (I'm not sure if thats what its called.......its the round sleeve that the outdrive rides in)? Seems this is the first thing to wear out in these trucks.

I found it better to just Superglue that round sleeve in. Keeps it in place, and keeps it from leaking Diff oil.

Even after I traction rolled it six times in 4 laps LOL!! Hi Scott hope you can beat lbckevin tonight!!Hope all is well!!

can you please confirm what part in the diffs you guys are all glueing in palce ?

i have seen a lot of talk on this but i dont understand which part in the diffs you are all talking about ?

are you talking about the little washer / shim that covers the rubber seal that goes over the shaft of the out drive?

What radio are you using? Sound like you have made some mixes, or your receiver has gone haywire.

any rebound?
thx for your input.
have an 8IGHT and would like to know main difference in shocks compared to the scte.
best,

Those are the 8ight buggy front and rears. Stock pistons 37.5 f/ 32.5r, green springs rear and silver fronts. I've been happy with them, however somethings to note. The 8ight standoffs are not 3mm, they are 4mm so you will need to drill your tower to get the standoffs to work. Or make your own 3mm standoffs (I drilled mine). The new Losi towers are very nice, but the front 8ight shocks are tight on the standoff angle.

Shocks work fine, but IMHO if you already have the stock shocks keep them. You have more access to tuning options on driver setups, plus the spring options.

Hope that helps!

So now people, give it a double take lol
I've always liked the SC10 body the best, but I will say my stock Losi body was also very good with some shoe goo, lasted FOREVER. I had to retire it after I got the new towers.
