Dave your not alone on this one, well for the tires anyways. Losi Strike tires rule at my local carpet track.

I'm happy with my truck but i'm surprised of the final weight.
You will save weight going to the tekin. I also have an rx8 but went with the lrp for less weight.
Not saying lighter is better for everyone on every track. Just want to see how light I can make it.

One of our local sponsored guys bought one a couple of weeks ago and bone stock with pro4 4000 he whooped everyone's azz. Truck works great stock weight.

I would run it, if its just a squeek, it shouldn't effect performane...
If everything feels free that is...

I drilled my arms out and now they move freely. They were binding so bad my rear suspension would not come back up. Also check your sway bar ball ends. Mine were new and also were binding. Now with 25wt oil the rear is silky smooth.

I just ordered the Chris A. stuff for my diffs, question is can I get the gasket and o rings separately or do I need to purchase the LOSB3568 package?

i always i reused the gaskets and o ring, i do have a rebuilt losi kit but i never used them in the 50+ packs i put on my losi. that is unless they arent damaged. just lightly sand the diff cup where the gasket sits and re use yours.

After $130 for a hop-up kit...

But it is a very nicely laid out truck from what I have seen...
We'll see once I get it on the track!
I have the same problem, I did get the rears on, but the fronts forget it. I did have to remove the rubber o-rings to get them on and they where still a biotch! I noticed some rough threads when you look at it closely.

TLR spring collars. Just a bit at the very start of the threads, almost like some left over flashing or flakes. That came off with exacto knife. I didn't help. Still don't have front ones on.
