It is really working well for my son but I need to replace the diff pins and want to put the same grease back in.
Does losi sell it?

That is not the same grease.. thats just normal black grease. There is no option to buy the stock grease right now. Ryan is working on a retail package but we have no new info or shipping date. You will have to pick up something local that feels close or just go to diff fluids.

I'm waiting for the same thing!

OK with that said I just had my mmp act really funny on me. First off it is burning out fans two so far. I contacted the castles support, they told be to update to the new firmware. Did it. Went out yesterday and burnt out my last fan. The issue is as soon as I turn on the esc the fans runs longer than it's suppose too, then randomly comes on.

The second issue is the darn thing works when it wants to. I flip the switch and nothing happens. Was so bad last night I couldn't run in a heat. So as the race ended the thing wanted to come on like nothing ever happened. (batteries are charged, solder joints good).

I want to send it in to castle but the wait time is three weeks if they have it in stock. So my question is "Is there a way to fix my mmp with out sending it in? OR do I have to wait for an exchange. Furthermore, I my want to try another Speed controller. I'm running a Spektrum rx, Novak 550 4.5 and XP1313 servo. Looked at the Tekin rx8 but my LHS says the next shipment is a couple months away. I was thinking about the novak but have no idea how well they work.

Any advise would be helpful.
you should remove the switch ! just solder the wires togeather. ALL switches are NG as far as im concerned

rx8 is THE esc

Thax for the advise, just remove the isssue (sounds good) but will it still be under warranty if I send it in for repairs?

yes ive sent in esc without the switch and not had a problem. cant hurt to ask though. switches that cost .01 cent each do not belong on a off road car lol.

Tighten it all the way down, apply thread lock and back off three turns. Mine works perfectly like this. Hasn't come loose either.

Sat nite race report Truck ran well on our new outdoor track with the big kicker trip .The landing on the last jump was very small so it was easy to miss it and flat land this Oh 30 foot lauch LOL ..had the rear drive pop out once, easy fix and ended up with a good wobble in the center outdrive.The jump was so fun to hit just right but was really hard on the truck if you missed short for some reason.After the last race I kept running and would just go full wood at the trip and flat land just for fun,first time I have ever really beaten up on this truck like that!She is in one piece just a lil worse for the wear... P.S. Nice paint Jeff!

Test drove mine today @ 4 seasons with mmp, 3800 4pole, trakpower 2s 5600 60c, jr z8800s. It's a small indoor clay track, ran 13t pinion and the esc was @ 140+ in like 5 min. Put a power cap on the RX and esc was under 120 motor 115. Pretty awesome truck, moved the rear shocks out one on the arms, other than that I was very impressed!

Next week I'll be testing RX8/Ballistic 4.5 with the 14mm rotor 3850kv

Here's my 1hr paint job, I was to excited! not my best work! I figure this first body wont last long!
