Where did you get the lightened outdrives? Everywhere I look, they are on back order.

Easiest to just bust out the sheet that came with the truck that contains the Exploded View. I take that thing with me every time I race my truck. But yeah it sounds like you have it all. There is a diff rebuild kit that contains the housing and the gasket, etc. it's separate from the other diff rebuild kit that contains the o-rings, shims and gasket, etc. But yeah sounds like you got it under control.

eBay is a great place to buy your stuff. Lots of hobby shops disassemble rollers and just part them out. Almost always cheaper than retail stores. I try to find a seller that does combined shipping, and I'll buy multiple times over the course of a few days then combine together.

I'm having trouble with tires. The track I run on is loomy. Sometimes wet loom which of course clog up my tires. What tires should I try for the dry loom? What tires for the wet loom? Im sure no tire handles both conditions well so suggestions for what tires for each condition would be appreciated.

Using "BCE Chassis"

Castle MMP, Tekin 4600, 14T Pinion, Integy IP 6200 2S Batts, Easy 10 mins every time.

I use the Hot Bodies Megabite Tires 99% of the time. This is a very easy to drive setup that you can push hard. Give it a try.
have some more ?'s.
by saying out on the tower and arm. you mean the outer most holes for both?

also i have started running my shocks emulsion style. what weights would you reccomend for that? i also run an 8th scale motor and 3 s lipo so that might need to be considered.

thanks.

Well, if the axles will allow more then all you need to do is grind the arms. I tried cutting the axles on my lathe and decided it wasn't worth it.

No, he never posted pictures.

Did Ridly post any pictures of his mods, I would like to see how much material he removed.

Looks like you have everything but the ring gear. You shouldn't need one of those unless your building an extra.

Do you need LOSB3571 (Front ring and Pinion) to seal the diff?

I bought a roller with some parts, so i have the gear set, the diff seals. I wanted the lightened outdrives, so all i needed was the housing to build another diff. Well, minus the mentioned above, LOSB3571.

The front and rear diffs are the same right? Minus the Rings/Pinon (LOSB 3571/3572) of course.

Also, friend recommended i seal it with a very small amount of RTV sealant, Red version. Anyone else use this? Tips?

Does anybody know if there is a company that makes a metal spur gear for this truck? Or can I use one from a different vehicle?

skyler hays- Yes, By Outer Holes, I mean the Outside Holes. I also run the shocks Emulsion Style. For youe Motor/Batt setup, You may need to go up 2.5wt all around to for the added weight of the 3S/1/8 Motor Setup.

Is a 2s 6000 mAh 30c lipo good for a MMP/Pro 4 4600 combo or is a higher c rating needed.

I run a metal spur in my SCTE. and love it. people will say "why do that? Your gaining rotation mass", blah blah. I don't really feel a difference and I still win races with it.

Ofna Hyper 9 metal spur fits perfect, uses the same teeth as the stock spur. (dont have the part number), you'll have to so some modifying, but the 4 holes will mount up perfectly. You have to cut the center of the gear out. The metal is hardened, so you'll need a nice powerful cutting tool.

Heres mine, sorry, my truck is still dirty




My pinion gears last, You have to mesh it up perfectly to reduce metal -metal wear.
cant see myself going back to a plastic spur, feels like a driving a buggy lol also love the sound.
