I just did this upgrade with no issues. So you could get the plastic caps and collar off but can't get the aluminum ones on? The threads are pretty fine, did you try turning them backwards first to get them threaded correctly? Maybe add some oil to get them started easier?

Get the HA shock bodies and they go on nice and smooth! Don't bother putting them on the blue stock shocks, you will end up mangling them and being pissed... Trust me! It will look better with the HA bodies also!

I did all of that with mine! Nothing helpes, even vise grips, but that just tore the collars up, got the Hard Annodized shock bodies and they went on like they were made to! Now I get to buy new collars someday cause these look like crap now!

Your actually breaking the shaft? Yeah I've never heard of anybody doing that.. Ya running 4S on it? Then maybe then I would say that would be vaguely possible.. Otherwise I would check your bearings, something has to be causing the issue! I've had mine for almost a year, never broke that! I did break my first universal pin this weekend... but those are pretty tiny if ya think about it and VERY easy to replace!

As far as AE offering a FT kit they had to the original one needed all sorts of modifications ( I have one that I have a lot more money in then my SCTE and a stock Losi is still easier to drive fast ) enjoy your truck .
^ Best advice! You can spend a ton of money on these trucks (I have) but the truth is, they're so good out of the box that you don't need to. The tuning kit is a great start though because you get a lot of upgrades for a fraction of the cost if you bought them seperately.

Ok, so it sounds like you're NOT breaking the center drive shaft, just the pin. But when you break the pin, you end up buying the entire new shaft. I've broken the pin a lot of times. What's happening is they start to wear through the plastic sleeve and then pop out. When they're partially out, they hit and break, sometimes they just fly out completely before they ever break. But now you can get Pin Keepers like these ones from King Headz, the sleeve is metal so they don't wear through them. http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...n-Keeper-Set-2 An alternative to that, is the new Losi ones that use a set screw to hold the pin in. That's a great choice too, but I don't have the part number for you. Hopefully someone like Hacker can give it to you.

New pins have the same part number as the old ones, LOSB3556

I just got my TLR kit last week and I thought I was going to have that problem after reading about other peoples issues with them, but to my surprise the collars and caps went on easy also the bearings in the hubs went in easy!
maybe they changed up the molds or something in the new tuning kits IDK.

Just thinking about replacing it since it has lasted a while, and there's not too many other options that are stronger.
A cheap fix for this would be to quit landing upside down.

What is the difference in using the inside hole on the tlr servo horn, to the outside hole?

1. Which motor mount are you using?
2. Why are sealed 5x11x3 bearings so hard to come by? I can find plenty of unsealed, or ones with a seal on one side.
