Grats, this is the setup I initially started with before the SC4X bit the dust after one pack (sensor board took a dump). 15T was temping perfectly for me with that combo at 150ish after 10 mins on a tight high traction indoor clay track. I stuck with the 15T on my Novak 5.5T and it's temping a little lower. 14-17 is my range of pinions.

And you would be right sir, I just went out with a fresh battery and lost the front diff.

This is crap on a truck that is not even a week old.

Getting ready to tear into it now.

Depending on what I find wrong what are my alternatives that the LHS would carry in stock?

Should I try and get TEN-T parts?

You sure it's the diff? I've heard of the CVD pins breaking on these. In fact there's a guy at a local track that can't finish a heat without breaking either his front or rear CVD. He has to finish the race as a RWD or FWD.

Well there arent a whole lot of options but there are some that many are having good luck with! As the saying goes "check out the first page of the forum" Im racing hard on my original diffs (chris pins before I ever ran it). I cant tell ya how to run your truck but asphalt is really hard on a direct drive system. Be prepared for the "crap" comment I aint gonna bag ya cuz Ive had the opposite luck with mine.

With the back wheel on the ground and the front wheels in the air when I roll the truck it tries to turn the CD.
With the front wheels on the ground and the back wheels in the air the front CV shaft does not turn at all and there is no Resistance to turn.

I am taking it apart right now.

hi-tech hs7940th way too much for me! had to turn the sterring expo down -48 to tame it. Probly should do some more research to see what the current draw is cause occasionaly I experience a brown out (loss of everything) and from what I was told this is unheard of when running an rx8

you win! Cheapest fix of them all! you "can" run a pin out of your ae sc for now. They fall out often when you take off a wheel or the wheel loosens for any reason. As an option you can run the HPI Blitz wheel hexes that have a small set screw in them. Still "crap"? ok.. now im a smarts ass

What all pins can I use?

If I have too I will cut down an allen wrench.

So basically the whole time I have been running on 3WD.

The pin I am talking about is the one if you take the wheel off and pull the 12mm hex off it goes in the shaft there.

I have never had the wheels off since I got the truck so this means that Losi never put one in it.

No wonder my truck has seemed slow. Losi owes me a pin.

You need to put a drop of CA glue in there and it will make much harder to lose....Losi owes nothing, you lost it somewhere. LOL

Dude I have never even had the wheels off this truck. and they were not loose enough to actually lose the pin.

Chances are if it was always that way.. there is a "chance" it was left out ( I guess) 3wd? not likely.. all the power more than likely went to the dogbone that had no resistance (meaning your pinless one) I'd strongly recomend that you inspect the front diff for cookin of the oil but thats just me being on the precautionary side. Pins? well if I remember when I lost one of mine I used on of the roll pins out of a ae shortcourse truck. Which one exactly? I dont remember. If whatever you use doesnt quite match the same thickness try not to run it very long.. you could damage your hex or axle shaft from the slop specially on asphalt
