Yeah I tried the 5 7 3 and went back to 5 3 3 as it felt more consistent to me. I know this truck is going to be KILLER outdoors once the weather breaks here.

P.S. I added the info about the updated diff pins in the 2nd shipment of trucks to the first page (in big red bold letters).

But then comes this next question we will hear "How will I know I got the 2nd shipment of trucks with the hardened diff pins?"

Great combo.
LOL, it's raining here
Running 5-7-3 and like it so far with 550 4.5 14mm rotor/MMP-with Novak cap and temps have been in the 120's for both motor/esc.

Awesome info on the first page... that really helps out alot to answer the same questions that typically come up.

I do have one question though.... from the looks it cant seem to find any of these kits available for purchase... are they that sold out or still on hold...

They should have the upgraded bumpers, right?Or is that the next big question?If so, than they can be identified easier?

No big deal to me. I know they will make it good. Now I will have some exta shims and spacers. I just don't want to see anymore bashing on horizon and losi over these pins. You and losi have done a hell of a job with the pin issue and now running changes. I have been in rc a long time and this is the best support I have ever seen. So thanks

Default Sweet!

Got lucky and found a new SCTE at a LHS! Chrispins on order, New RX8 picked up and it has 3 holes on the bottom of the case ( i hope thats the most current?) Tekin 550 4.5 on order, as well as a JConcept manta Blitz body (hope it fits!) 14,15,16 novak mod 1 gears. Thanks for all the great advice on here! I think I will be more prepared because of it.

I'm not sure anyone will actually know, PM Hacker. When ever I have asked about rolling changes on parts you never get a definitive answer. Who knows how much stock is actually out there and circulating. Your best best would be using Horizon to order from, just call before and ask. Write the persons name down, place your order and keep your fingers crossed.

I've heard a few dates on more trucks, honestly I would know. Last I heard I think it was first part of May.

3 hole case IS the newest version , and the Manta body will fit but you must line it up and drill your own holes and trim out around the rear for the bumper mount .

I really like mine. You may have some issues gearing the 5200, but maybe not. I'm running a 12t on the 4600 and running mid 150 degrees. They sure are fast motors though
