Have any of you guys tried the proline crimefighters on any of your vehicles? What kind of handling characteristics do they have and what kind of track conditions do they work well with?

i have used crimefighters on my 1/8 buggy. they work decent on a hard packed track with a bit of loam.

Okay, my mugen truggy came with them and i was pondering whether or not to buy some cityblocks. Think i'll stick with them for now and see how they do. I run cityblocks on my scte and they are an awesome tire.

the diff pin issue was resolved a long time ago. the new kits are solid. as for leaking diffs, well that depends on how you build them. if you glue in the inserts with either RTV or CA, and some have had success putting a light coating of RTV on both sides of the gasket. my diffs leak just a bit. next rebuild i'm going to try the RTV on the gasket trick.

I assume you mean BowFighters as P/L doesnt make a Crimefighter for SC ?

If so I think the are great tires for hard packed dirt with a loamy/dusty top , wet or dry .

I would compare them too the Losi Eclipse tires but a little better side bite .

Regular buggy Crimefighters are awesome as well when the track starts getting chewed up .

I've been using RTV for the last 2 builds. Works fantastically. I use a little on each side of the gasket and let dry. It hasn't leaked a drop since.

so you put the RTV on each side and let the gasket/rtv dry by itself before putting on the diff cup top?

Default stop diff leaks

Building these diffs is an art. Here's what I've done to stop diff leaks and also get buttery smooth diff action.
  • CA the metal inset in place
  • lightly sand the high spots in the diff case
  • Apply a very thin layer of RTV between the diff case and gasket
  • Use Mugen o-rings (part # MUGT0244). They fit better and are a hair larger than stock.
  • I've built several SCTE diffs and the tolerances have all been different for each diff. I've had some that I couldn't screw down tight because it locked out the diff. You want to have different thickness shims to place between the outdrive and the pin that holds the larger diff gear. You want to shim correctly so that you can tighten all the diff screws and still have a smooth diff. The stock shims tend to be pretty thick. Some loosen the screws that hold the diff together, but this always caused leaking for me. Just use thinner shims.

As far as the diff internals being weak, this worry is a thing of the past and should be solved.
