Well i have owned this truck for a long time and replaced the diff fluid many times, i bought another truck and just did the diffs and the front diff is binding. Not sure why, I know how to build the diffs and seat everything properly but when I tighten it down it still locks up. I got sick of trying to figure it out and just used two gasgets. Figure its just the diff housing that is out. Known problem?

Also, should I swamp chassis before running? Will the changed angle hurt anything if I race tonight before swapping chassis?
When the front shaft pin was coming thru the plastic sleeve the angle seemed to be the problem,The new teckno front shaft has a fix for that as well as the newer one from Losi uses a set screw now!I use black grease and a set screw style stock front shaft and have had no failures in quite a long time.Lost two in a year and a half and none since going to the set screw!If You can drive some trucks with different chassis to see which suits your driving style,that may help You decide

I pushed them down all the way with a small hex, Rebuilt the rear fine. But the front is giving me some issues, doubled up the gasget and it works fine. Could the diff housing be out?

Somehow these snuck by - I haven't seen any posts about the Louise wheels for SCTE. If anyone has them, thoughts?

Come in white, yellow, or black:

I can't wait for the new 22SCT wheels.

I bought 6 pairs of the Avid wheels and they seem really soft at the face as almost all of them wobble at the face. AKA wheels are much better in that regard even though they have loose hexes.

It's stopping completely, I'm going to give it one more shot! Hopefully it will work this time. I'm going to drain the fluid and rebuild from scratch!

if and not knowing what ya did. but if you get any glue on the inserts you have done it bad. 2 gaskets fixes it. glue the inserts in when fully installed. other wise you have that 1000th of an inch of glue thats messing you up. Hope this helps

It happens. I have had to use two gaskets on several diffs.

It could be that, the truck is literally brand new, i have not even put electronics in it. I took it out of the box and stripped it down. to do the diffs. Could it be their binding cause there BRAND new?

Just taking a roll call of any and all SCTE drivers running the BCE chassis...

I have enjoyed the performance out of the one on my truck.

Just got done installing my ha pivotballs and new rod ends. The fit is alot better and there is a lot less slack. Set my steering turnbuckles at 45mm to give it just a slight toe out. The suspension action is a lot smoother now too. Also did the socket head screw and washer on the motor mount like you guys suggested. Will see how it all works out on race day.
