Can someone recommend a screw extractor for a small set screw for a 1/8 scale motor. The size is approx. 1/16. I could dremel it, but would have to find a good drill bit. It would also be nice to have a set of high quality bits/extractors for future use.

Sears craftsman has a set of the backouts.. work well and two very small ones included in the set.

Lot easier to make a flat spot with the dremel (disc wheel) and use a flat head screwdriver though

I have use small Torx bits which have worked great. Tap it into the allen and back it out. Won't damage pinion.

The Craftman ez outs have a left handed drill bit on the opposite end. Most of the time that will break the screw loose. My set has 4 micro sizes. Its invaluable!

Do yourself a favor either order MIP tools or get the HPI screws and be done with it.
Yeah first off was using mip tools, didn't help, the screws were soft, went to the hpi screws got the rear done, center diff wasn't true, was wobbling after many attempts , and yeah I know how to build a diff bro, lol, like I said before prob just got a bad batch, wanna trade your new diffs for mine? I'm not on here cryin, it's all good, just the way the ball rolls. Shoot I'll prob buy em again, gonna wait a bit though, lol

I have been using a Tenshock SC411 (sensored, 4 pole, 550 sized) 4000KV for quite a few months now, not racing, but still going around a medium sized, hard packed, outdoor track with some doubles and a triple. Gearing was at 15T and it was temperature around 150F-160F. With this gearing I could clear the triple confidently with the right approach. I dropped it down to 14T to see if my temperatures would improve and found that they didn't improve, and despite better acceleration, I couldn't confidently clear the triple anymore.

I installed the Hobbywing 3656SD (sensored, 4 pole, 540 sized) 4000KV with a 14T pinion and initial driveway testing was that it had just as much go, cooler temperatures, and braking was a lot harder. It also felt a little smoother.

Today I took it down to the same track, and can say that it definitely performs a better than the Tenshock. Even on 14T it could smoke the triple with a lot more clearance, and the temperatures were around 140F-150F. I haven't tried 15T yet. Braking is also definitely a lot harder, so I have needed to adjust my transmitter to suit (haven't tried to adjust the ESC braking setting yet).

Due to track maintenance I haven't done a runtime comparison, but even that would be a guesstimate as I haven't done a timed run with the Tenshock.

Anyway, hope this helps you folk who might be tossing up for motor options.
Regarding braking try to set brake endpoint at about 60 and esc at 50.

What do you mean by wobbling? Same thing as stocks were the center diff has some play or the gear gear was not true?

hum. These new diff cases have slightly tighter holes so the screws will not strip in the case. Only reason the screw should wobble is the hex is not on center.

My bad Casper, I should of clarified more. The brand new spur was wobbling after many attempts of securing it, criss cross tightening, etc. I put it on my old diff case to check it's trueness, it worked perfectly , any suggestions? I'm not knocking losi by any means, this truck is the shit! Prob just got a bad batch. It was wobbling when I spooled it up with power and all the screws were seated

If any of you could watch this video and tell me your opinion which would work better in terms of handling characteristics that would be great. youtube.com/watch?v=QpQzRlAED7c

Need some help.
I was racing and noticed that my car will not make a tight right turn as it will left. I have adjusted the rods to see if I can get more throw but no go. Any suggestions?

humm-- I am sure Ryan will read this soon but we did not notice this with the test samples we got. I know Ryan has worked with the production batch. Don't have a solution for you other then possibly lightly sanding the case on a hard flat surface to make sure it is flat. That one is weird.

Servo saver may be sticking.
