I'm on my iPad at the moment and cannot upload a pic of my personal car, but if you scroll down the page once at the link I provided you will see Dustin's car and see what I mean
Thanks Corey! I appreciate it.

Is anyone making a chassis protector for the truck? I checked upgrade and only see one listed for the buggy.

Sorry for this NOOOB question, I have had a XXX Cr buggy before , and I really hated the ball diff, I had my LHS car guys build it for me but it seemed to always have issues. Then I ran one in my XXX-SCT for a bit that didn't last long.
Now i am at the point of building my diff for the 22T.(Man this thing has built fast I only have 3 hours in it and I am already building the diff.) Should I look for some experienced help with this or should I just follow the instructions in the book? Any help is appreciated, I just want to get this diff right the first time I don't want to be mucking with it...

It really is not any different then the XXX diff. Getting the diffs to last a long time is usually not in how you build it. (as long as you build it per the instructions) but how you set the diff tension and the slipper tension once you get it all done. Ask a local fast guy to help you out. It is easier to show someone then to explain it and once you see how it is all done it is pretty easy to do yourself but as long as you ensure the diff is tighter then the slipper ball diffs last a pretty long time.
