When you put the cover back on and apply real power, this force is ampified quite a bit and as a result the gears & pins can bind against each other....

more power or torque ?

This why Nitro can get away with , gas motors have low torque compared to electric.....

Default 1/8th E ball diff

Just a guess on my part , I'm assuming 1/8thE evolves into a true Electric 1/8th and not just a conversion....

Hey , I just stole some of those new blank Ae shock pistons , will report how they perform tomorrow...

You should be able to just peel the shoe goo off the chassis. Thats what i do. May be a pain sometimes if its real thin, but it will come off.

in 1/8th ball diff isn't gonna happen. you need that adjustability oil gives.

Anyway in 10th i do see why ball diffs are the choice, but not for me.

I hate them.

How do know that ball diffs perform best. You say gear diffs suck, and ball diffs are the way for every thing. Just wornding.

I can this week.... I'll have both out of the car. I'm guessing the gear diff will be heavier, but it shouldnt be by much


The Pros of the gear diff are, durability, consistency and ease of maintenence. Cons are time consuming to adjust, might be slghtly heavier.

Pros of a ball diff are, solid power delivery, simple and light. Cons needs consistent maintenence, can be tough for a newbie to get smooth long lasting service.


The Durango car is running gear diffs, That team has been on a run lately... recently winning the german nationals.....

If the ball diff is set too loose, will the vehicle lose traction AND gain traction several times quickly through corners? Basically my truck really sucked yesterday for some reason. I freshened up the diff and I don't normally suck the diff all the way down and back it off 1/8 of a turn. I get a firm feeling while turning the screw then adjust it on the track.

So assuming the diff might be a little loose, that's why I ask the question above.

I dont think there are different versions available? From what I've read there's only one and a rumor with no release date on the others. Looks like the car is doing fine with the current version, I would guess there will have to be a demand for any others to be produced. They have some impressive names racing/working for them now.... Adam Skelding for one, he's been Hot Bodies' designer for many years. I've heard rumors that his move has put the Hot Bodies 2w buggy in hold indefinetly.
