Shim the bevel gear just under the pin, between it and the washer. By putting a shim there you are forcing more contact between the bevel gear and the satelites. If you pull the outdrive back and forth with you fingers that is the slop you want to eliminate. Doesn't take much at all. Don't get it too tight, leave a bit of wiggle so you know it's running free.
I still don't have o-rings in my shock caps and they don't leak. They did at first but after a few oil changes and "blueprinting" the top of the body it went away. I should probably get some o-rings anyway.

When I built mine before they came out with their fix I used some o-rings from my TRF201 shocks of the same size, mine haven't leaked a drop.. Should be easy enough to come up with some at your local hobby shop.
Thanks for the info.I'll check it out.

The oil leaks around the upper cap .don't know if I am doing something wrong or what. wry
small amount of green slime on the threads works to stop any leaks. I used a little when I first built my shocks. Never put any more on and never had an issue with the caps leaking. I tried the orings and didn't like the way they fit.

I need a new diff at the back. I see Xray shipped the updated "V2" diff. I'm not sure which part number this is? Is #304930 the new "enhanced" gears?

Sure is....and the car comes to a screaming halt. It happens when the pin is dry. Keep it lubricated and it shouldn't happen. There is also a pin with a flat spot and a grub screw barrel you can use to lock it in or an aftermarket aluminum collar to replace the plastic collar. Seems only to happen in the front centre.

Looks like it just ran out of lubrication and got dirt/dust in there. That'll heat it up quick.

There's also some aluminum collars from Exotek that will make sure this doesn't happen, and they look pretty sweet.

But every so often check to see how hot those joints get and if they're hot you may need to rebuild them.

I rebuilt all my drive shafts the other day, I've had the car since it came out so they were getting a little slop in them. I just got a pack of new pins from Xray and they were good as new. Didn't have to get any other new parts.

The coupler and pin alternatives are from the XRAY electric sedan. The coupler part number is #305231. This has one side tapped to accomodate an M3 setscrew. It could be used with the stock pin, or for additional security the optional pin has a flat spot ground to capture the set screw. The pins are #305392 and they come two in a package.

For those with pin issues--go to exotekracing.com--they make super trick collars to keep the pins in--they come in black or xray-orange!!
I run the orange--they work flawless and look super cool!!
