+1, same here!

I broke a diff screw and thrust washer in my 22T first time out, user error, bought a new one and it was fixed. Didn't think about calling TLR to "discuss" the problem... But for a lil over $8, problem was fixed, thankfully my LHS has TLR well stocked!

Exact same thing happened to me tonight. Getting the truck dialed in and was really feeling good, only to have the diff give out on me. Took it apart and the inner thrust washer was shattered. I've built far too many diffs to really think it user error by over tightening or whatnot as I hadn't touched the diff after thoroughly breaking in on the bench. Basically I had ran about 6 packs or so over two days.

The diff/outdrives wobble in the bearings more than any other vehicle in memory. Not sure that would account for the thrust washer exploding or not, but something worth noting.

I have also had no problems with Horizons customer service, i recently sent in some receivers that were not yet a year old(spektrum), They replaced one that was bad and resoldered a wire on the other one no questions asked.

Ask for a replacement for a bad part you get a replacement....tell them you broke it you buy the new part.

Had the same issue with the 22T. I used the AE diff nut, bolt, spring and washers and all seems fine.

Nice lid did you have to do any mods to get it to fit. I bought the proline tundra for time being. Just wondering if I would waste money on this awesome body not fitting on my sc10

What would the reason be to not use captured steering rod ends?

I picked up some from another brand and they seem to give the full amount of travel with the angle mod on the rack?

I just used some longer screws to match the same amount of threads.

With no servo saver you'd be looking at stripping servo gears in a good crash. I suppose that's ok for a sponsored pro driver that gets servos for free, but I don't mind a DNF if the alternative is a busted servo.

I'll take the opposite - A wrecked servo instead of a DNF

From my experience it's the same..you strip the gears in your servo you aren't going anywhere..at least with a ball cup it can be popped back on..

If you are not getting any binding with the captured rod ends, use them. I had rigged up a set for my SCT, but found that they did bind up more than ballcups and put them on the backburner for now.

Generally if I dont take a good hit I can finish races with the modified ballcup/rack setup. Still pops far too easy (compared to every other car), but workable until a real solution appears.

With the captured ends if you hit something hard enough will just break something else (something has to give - servo, spindle, rack.. something). But servos are pretty strong these days.

I'm with the others as for finishing races over life span of a servo - I'd rather my servo turn into a pile of shattered gears than have my car pulled out of the main for a popped ballcup after spending all day at the track.

I'm confused on the logic of wanting a wrecked servo instead of a dnf. If u wreck a servo u will get a dnf right???

Yes, in the case that a servo is 'wrecked' then you'll DNF. But I guess the logic is that *if* I'm going to DNF - something better be well broken.
