Got a few upgrades for my truck




The badlands are for my practice days, They should hook up well at my local track since is mainly dusty/loose/moist. Cant wait to try them out.

Also: Socal Rain sucks ((((((((((((((

I just hoping they include this track (Herts) to the UK national series

It's an awsome track with a truggy, gotta try it with my SCTE.

Will def have to get a 4600KV motor as this is the only track I have to gear up on with the nitro's as the straight is looooong.

Quick question for those of you that may be of help. What exactly are the little plastic caps on the front of the shock tower for? The half moon shaped ones that are for the mounting screws to the diff housing.

I've lost mine and I'm not even sure what purpose they served to begin with honestly. They don't look like they would do much of anything except act as a washer for some reason?

-Fient,
- I also want to know how that Aluminum Center diff peice works, I have a issue with slop right where the bearing sits inside it with the center outdrives, To me it looked like the bearing was spinning inside it and wore it down.

I got a little driving time in today at my small track at my house track needed some work with all the leafs that been coming down, had to reshape the tripple and such. New motor/esc combo ran great.

This trucks such a beast nothing ever brakes no matter how hard a crash

Indeed the STRC Center Diff mount.Yes! Buy it, It eliminated ALL the slop i had in that area. Its built very well. I didnt weigh it, not much more than the stock plastic piece I would amuse. The stock Plastic Motor mount i had, Had some wear in it, From the bearing, causing it to wobble a bit.
I have not drove my truck yet since the upgrade, Its built solid, Nice CNC finish, I can see no issues at all.

The shock tower is on an angle, relative to the diff housing. These spacers allow the heads of the bolts that fasten the tower to the housing to sit flat.

OK, but only if you try it out for a couple weeks when you're done, just to make sure it's fine.

If it wasnt for those shim plates I bet I wouldnt ever have to do diff maintenance. Every time I tear them down, the pins, gears, oil and o-rings are all fine, the only problem is the stupid shim plates are practically gone and all the metal flakes are floating in the fuild.
Good question, i had the same concern since obviously the pressure pushes everything "outward"... So to answer, no, the pins and the insert showed no signs of wear and the diff fluid did not have the "metalic" color in it like before when the shim would break down...

Default TL Servo Arm

I keep seeing a lot of pictures of trucks in here. To those that are using the TL aluminum servo arm, please consider using the inside hole. The outside hole give you positive expo and can make the truck much less predictable.

Also the gear does'nt make contact since the pin is not entirely sunk into it, thats why you can see on the larger shims that wear, the pin eats into one side and the diff insert eats the other side...
