I don't cut out the rear squares in the fenders but do the rest of the cutouts in the hood, bed, and roof. The squares in the rear fenders will cause those areas to crack pretty fast.

TLR sells a great little rebuild kit for servicing diffs.

I clean my gears but I mean if you rebuild your diff every few weeks I would assume from the statment "after every two or three races"

Do you reuse your diff and thrust balls?

Or use all new?

I have spare rebuild kits I keep those on hand all the time and I will rebuild a diff before it needs it but most of the time I will reuse the diff balls if the diff feels good prior to tearing it apart.

just wondering how othesrs do it.

I would at a minimum replace the main drive rings and thrust bearing.

I'll be honest - I run my ball diffs for a long time between rebuilds. I'm on probably 10 race days with my latest build and am debating whether or not to rebuild it before the Shortcourse Showdown this weekend. To me there's always a level of uncertianty with rebuilding anything that's currently working. I know it's good - so why change it.

Anyway - I do reuse balls and gears and rings - just flip the rings over.

But I'm not a pro driver by any stretch of the imagination and I've only been running 17.5 since the last build.

Running stock you should get a lot more life out of your diffs. My buggy diff lasts what seems forever but loads are much lower with a lighter car and smaller tires. The type of track you drive on and the power you are putting through it all will have a drematic effect on how often you will want to service your diff.

I never thought aluminum drive shafts were a great idea - but what the heck - had to try them. Got about 5 racedays out of them. So - 15-20 heats plus practice or so. You can se the end snapped off one. You can see the wear from the shaft rubbing the outdrives on the remaining one.



Just FYI for those thinking about these. This was also running 17.5 on indoor tracks - no 1/8 size jumping.

I would assume on the 22 buggy on blinky would be better results.

That thing broke right off. You going to use them again? did it make a difference performance wise for you?

I would assume they old last longer on the buggy as well, but have no hard evidence.

If there were performance improvements I'm not good enough to notice them. Lap times were the same.

They look really cool, though!

Casper/Hacker, Did Dustin change his short course to mid motor at Cactus? I've been toying with the mid motor idea, just curious.
