Not sure who I actually am stealing this from, but the best thing I've heard about slop in a Losi is this: Secret Losi Overtaking Power.

Wondering if the screw is backing out and causing problems. I use the Left Hand screws form the 8ight on my SCTE so they don't back out.

Casper, you nailed this one bro. It's only been the right front. So I will be picking up a set of these screws Immediately. Thanks man.

I replaced the front diff case on my friends scte and the bumper will not fit on the bottom. Did he buy the wrong diff case?

Nvm, old 10-T case I guess.

+1

I've never broken an arm on my 2 SCTE's

I encountered the same issue a few months ago. You have an old non-revised bulkhead/diff case (same P/N). You can dremel it to make the bumper fit.

Don't modify the bumper.

You guys have asked about the alum rear diff inserts and they work great. I have been testing them for a little while now. 5-40 alum nuts are very hard to find and now losi offers some. Another way to take seme weight out of the truck if that is your deal. Great hopup with the titanium screw kit. I believe you need 24 nuts to replace all of them on the truck.
hard to find
Is this the long awaited part?
If it is, what a disappointment and leads me to wonder who wasted more time on an unnecessary part: RPM with their arms or TLR with these rear bulkhead aluminum diff inserts.

LOL, hate when they do that too.

2 runs? I get a lot longer than that. Keep in mind Losi slop equals fast.

if you stay in the groove...AKA Gridirons, Enduros are also a good choice if you wonder into the dust at times.

Plus they wear fantastic

WTF?! Has anyone ever had a problem with the plastic inserts? How about something to make the diffs themselves last longer... If Durango has fixed their breakage issues with the new V2 truck I may dump the Losi.

Why? Even as is it's still the best outdoor truck. Diffs are just fine, not understanding your concern. I've ran the same diffs since day 1 of the truck coming out and still going strong.
