I am rebuilding my diffs with the HD diffs and I ran into an issue where I reinstalled the center diff and it will spin smooth except for you get to a portion of about 2cm in the turn where it's harder to spin. I checked to see if the portion is touching the chassis or if the screw is rubbing but don't see anything like that.

glue the small little o spacers to the chassis. glue is dry, now put screws in battery holders each (2) of them at a angle so when the battery tray is bolted to chassis with the little o ring things it misses the center drive assembly depending on weather the speed control is front or back. it goes either way but the little angle pieces have to be turned to your installation.

*SIGH*

First off, if you have a question about how to install it email me. I don't frequent this forum that often anymore. I just happened to see your post.

Second, I get a question about once a week on flipping the tray. There is ZERO advantage to that. I've tested it both ways.

Third, there is a 2 page installation sheet included with the tray. There are also 5 pictures of it installed on the web site if you need a clearer picture.

Just received some Avid sabertooth wheels from Amain and am extremely disappointed with the quality. I have looked for a review everywhere, so I started this post to know your experiences with them.

My first take... very thin plastic and lots of flex. Compare these to the DE wheels on my light 2WD SC, which are rock solid... These seem like they would flex/bend with my heavy Ten-SCTE just sitting on the bench. I could not imagine how they could possibly hold up on large tracks.

They have some cool features, such as the grooves for the serrated lock nuts... but the plastic feels cheaper than a New Bright.

Here is a link...

I like these wheels. While I have only used them on indoor tracks, they seem to hold up pretty well. Probably the best looking wheels I have seen for this truck.

I been running them Avid rims for a while they hold up pretty good on large outdoor tracks and Indoor on the SCTE in there very light. Yea i agree they do look kind of cheap looking though but i like the look of them though.

I had the hex on one of them eat up the hex not strip nessasary and my wheel fell off during a race it might of been my fault though but it can be fixed.

The Flex is not bad really not sure where your getting that from.

Might take a look at them DE dish wheels so my truck is cleaner thats the downside of the spokes is everything goes though them dirt/rocks.

Shock oil is not a lubricant. I would not recommend this for the ring and pinion. Either the TLR black grease or maybe the marine grease or some other type of gear grease.

Avid are my favorite wheels so far. Tried few of them - proline, aka, jconcept, de, de dish.

I too was sceptical when I got them. They are very flexible, which, suprisingly does not impact my driving style. Probably the lighest of the wheels, and they have been very durable for me. They have stayed true the longest out of all the wheels I tried. Also, I run my truck heavy.

The DE Borrego were my least favorite. Two of the four warped more and easier than the others, and are heavy.

Stock Losi, second favorite.
