Smoked my rear diff gears. They are ground down to nubbies. This is not a complaint, since I ran them all last year, and I bought the truck used. So probably another full season there, and I believe it was one of the very first batches, so not bad. It's had chris pins in it since day one and they still look new.

The shot gears made for an exciting race day. No power, front wheel drive only one minute, full power blast launching unexpectedly over things way too far the next.

For my most recent body I used some aerosol DupliColor spray-on bed liner (http://www.duplicolor.com/products/truckBedCoating/) instead of shoe-goo in those key areas, and where the wheels rub the color off. Spray on before you remove your window masks, then respray over the liner with white (or whatever color you back with) if you want it to look pretty on the inside.

Seems to be easier to get a nice even coat, lighter, and for the wheel area doesn't grab as much as the rubbery shoe goo.

Working great so far!

Yeah it looks easy enough... Been doing this for a while. Thanks for the offer. I'm sure there might be some questions when it comes time to tear down and rebuild.

Thanks,
Greg

Looks awesome, and looks like it should perform well, but depending on the answers to the above questions, it could be in my pile of wasted SC bodies in a couple runs.
It is .040 lexan and the holes are not precut as we know some may want to run with them in there still.

I spray bedliner over the paint on all my bodies, in hope that they last a lil longer. Seems to work great so far! The extra weight is negligible.
