Does anyone know where to get a good pre-cut chassis protector for the stock 2.0 chassis, I got a new chassis and want to protect it as much as I can, I seen them in the past listed on A-Main but just looked and didn't see them listed anymore.

You're kidding right?

If you are serious then yes you will run into issues with the diffs. I have a T8i 1950 in my Pro8 converted SCTE 2.0. The first time I hit the brakes the rear ring gear exploded, that was with the brakes around 50%. I rebuilt it and turned down the brake strength even more and the same thing happened.
I would say for sure get the aluminum rear bearing inserts, and shim the diff as well as the pinion as tight as you can without any binding front and rear.

i wanted to run 4s cause i got like 6 packs and didn't want to buy more lipos. But with some research, think i will scale it back and invest in some 3s lipos. thanks.

how are those t8i motors, i've been thinking of getting the 2700kv t8i motor. is there a big difference between that and the t8 2650kv?

I take it you are bashing with this truck? You can go with the Pro-4 HD 3000 KV for 3S operation as well. No need to go full 8th scale system.

Ryan, when are we likely to see the TiCN shock shafts and the other stuff thats coming for the truck? I have one I'm kind of holding out on rebuilding everything waiting on this stuff. A rough estimate at least would be great, nothing wrong with the current stuff availible IMO but if I'm gonna go thru it I want the new stuff. Thanks

If you want to run 4s the pro4 hd comes in 1850 kv. I tried a hobbywing 3400 on 3s and it was too much for racing, but would be fun for bashing.

These are really a running change but will be a new part number. We will likely try to bring these in towards the end of the first quarter of next year.

Been having a nose dive issue for the longest time. Sporadic. Even sometimes down a long straight into a turn, it feels/looks like the truck is slamming on the brakes. I've tried everything to fix it. Rebuilt shocks, diffs, suspension pins... About everything. I even talked to the Tekin guys to make sure my ESC was setup right. Drag Brake is on zero. The truck used to be mint, now it's got this issue.

Today I found this (see picture). The "A" wire between the motor and ESC is partially broken, right next to the ESC. It's not hitting anything. Just partially broken. Could that cause things to short? I'm replacing, but wanted to get your opinions.
