hacked to the back. Happens to me all the time. I was sitting BQ and after the first turn beaten bloody back to 6-7. I managed to fight may way back up to 2 for the bump to the A and took 6th from the 12 position.

Used Eights silicone diff build tips and so far so good, now leaks after racing last night!

Now working on my new tlr hp body.
Should have just bought a new roller and stripped it for parts. Best thing to do every 6-8 months or so.

This same KOOK would try and take you out when I was lapping him in the quals so I just had enough!!I started to walk off the stand and turned my head away and just pulled full throttle with no regard of the outcome(stupid I know) and with out even knowing my truck plowed this same lapper at full pin!!Karma Bi-atch!!Jus glad I didn't hit a marshall!!So Rudy Rico and Branden had a good run by the time I rejoined the race They were gone!!!Cheers!!!!
Man, I know the feeling!!! BTW Rudy Rico is getting FAST!!! That kid hasn't been at it too long either but damn he picked it up and now he's killing it! Really nice kid and his dad is awesome too. His dad is always out there marshaling. Good people. I see them at WCRC quite often.

Yep, and I like to order a few extras just to have on hand too. But the Avid Revolutions to me are the best bearings at the best price. I've been neglecting my truck, yet my Avid bearings just keep on keepin on

Last night at the track i noticed my truck was slipping badly like it was only front wheel drive. Upon further inspection i took apart my rear diff and noticed as i turned one outdrive, the other wouldn't move. Just as i figured my diff gears were shot from having no fluid in the rear. Anyway have any of you guys had the same problem?

Or sell the roller instead of parting it....

This is a very common problem. If you read the thread, there's a bunch of tips and posts to help seal the diffs.

My top ones:
Glue insert, green AE slime on insert, double gasket to tighten screws more, grease on driveshaft (overlooked a lot), and some luck.

Got the Hi pro body done! Did anyone else have problems with the body holes? Mine were off in the rear and the front ones did not exist (the dimples).

No, its fine, i put some high tack gasket sealant on the inserts. Just my gears were already ruined by the time i got to do it. Surprisingly my center diff hasn't leaked much at all. Still next time i change it i'll do the same to the inserts. And i really don't think you need to buy a second kit for spare parts. Just buy as needed. At the club level it's not that necessary.

Body holes have to be lined up manually, don't use the dimples.

By the way, got the next one cut out. ORANGE you glad to see me? LOL

Ok so today my driveshaft holds, the front and rear lost the pins to them.

My LHS had slightly smaller ones that worked to let me race. My question is do they make titanium or tougher front and rear shaft connectors and pins so that they dont wear out?
