I use acetone myself; but a lil dawn, hot water, and elbow grease should work fine! Just use somnething like a q-tip to get the bulk of the goo out first...

Mineral spirits and a tooth brush works really good . You can get it at any hardware store , or Home Depot.

ok, as you can see by my avatar i have the scte body sitting on something with 1/8 scale rims....Well, im converting my Losi 810 buggy into a SCTN and see people calling out the week points of the SCTE and no offense but there are way too pages to look through and wanted to see from you experienced guys what are the weak points of the 810 since it is what i actually have...

Its riding on the scte chassis, bumpers, rear drive shaft for longer scte chassis and its pretty much done other than the body post and side skirts its done but i know people say the DIFF PINS suck and what else do i need to to bring attention to...I'd like to upgrade to a real .21 rather than the .20 or whatever the 3.4 nitro motor they put in it is...just afraid the driveline might be weak or whatever is weak i will find it the wrong way rather than catch it now....

So other than the diff pins...What else is a weak point that i need to address on my 810? And yes, im keeping the 1/8 wheels at this moment but things can change down

What ever the pitch is , a 48 tooth will not fit , it would rub the chassis 1st and you would have to raise the center diff mount and second it would rub the battery tray, i use the ape tray with the modded 43 tooth losi 2.0 and its a mm awAy from rubbing my nano 6.6. Im going back to stock spur. The 43 was great for carpet racing though

48tooth with .8 pitch may fit. Teeth on .8 are smaller than mod1, if you compare 40tooth .8 pitch with 40tooth mod1, you'll notice that .8 spur gear will be smaller in diameter.

I like non-chlorinated brake clean, can pick it up at any auto supply or even Wal-Mart for that matter. Works excellent!

What are the driving differences between these two setups? 5/5/3 and 5/7/3 how do they effect the drivetrain? and steering?

Thanks

5 7 3 will have a little more forward bite over running 5k. I use 7k on larger out door tracks and 5 on an indoor tight track.

As you go up in the center diff, it provides more of a 4wd feeling and thus more forward grunt. You can kind of think of it as tightening a slipper clutch as you go to thicker oil. Its not exactly the same, but it can help you think about it kind of close.
