Got a pack of those on their way in the order I just placed ... looked like a good deal.

The play is rarely in the holder, but if yours is loose around the bearing, I'd just use a stocker to replace it. I don't have much good to say about STRC, and once the center diff doesn't vibrate all around, the stock plastic support is just fine.

The stock losi diff holder gets pretty hot during a race, goes through allot of heat cycles. The aluminum one is better.

Those are a good deal for flanged locknuts, but they aren't serrated. I continued to have issues with wheel nuts loosening until I got the ones that are serrated to dig into the wheel a bit.

Imo there's no need for an Aluminum Holder.

You can always serrate them yourself with a dremel cut wheel

Same here

All the aluminum does is wear and make another sloppy bearing location. The plastic keeps the bearing firmly in place, and last, well, a long time as I have over a year on mine and it's going strong

I have had better luck with the Losi Serrated Wheels nuts.
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ut-Set-6-Black


I have tried both sets of the Durango ones and lost a nut during Qual's.

The stock HPI Blitz ones are my second choice, the flange is too big for some wheels.

I would like to try the M2C Steel serrated ones

Get the Pro-line ProTrac wheels, trimming on webbing on front wheels and never look back.

Default Screws?

What is the size of the screws that go into the diff cases from bottom through the chassis? Can't seem to find these on exploded view.

Stock is 8-32 x 3/8", but I have changed mine to 8-32 x 1/2" because the short ones don't seem to seat as far into the diff housing as they should.
