Mine did it once, I replaced the bulkhead and shimmed the diff a bit tight and never had a problem since. DId you replace the bulkhead and pinion/spur gear on the diff?

Check to make sure you don't have a cracked bulkhead. Had that happen once on my Rc8B3 buggy and it wasn't easily noticeable.

You should have roughly 5 shims per diff front and rear. The mesh should barely tick back and forth.

Add more shims to the left side of the ring gear one at a time until it goes away...

Looks like some new rear hubs may be coming. All of the AE pro drivers at the DNC have them on their buggies and truggies. They also have some carbon plate stiffeners bolted onto the bottom of the rear arms on the truggies.

Shimming the diffs takes a little time to do as all cases are a touch different. You could use 3 or 6 depending on how off the case is.

JQ claimed he made the carbon arm stiffeners. He said they would be available on his website in the near future.

Going to be stepping away from etruggy and will be listing this for sale soon, but was looking to get an idea from a few of you all on what a realistic asking price is...

Pics here:
https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0XJtdOXmIyXWnu

All pictured will be included(2x bodys(1 race on nice body, many days on the white body, both fully drywall taped/gooped), oils, new spare v2 diff, arms (AE and Mugen), shock shafts, rear tower, you can see the pics...
It's basically stock minus few Avid bearings to replace bad stock ones, a one run old jconcepts wing and Mugen rear turn buckels, has updated front arms as well. AKA Impacts(soft) on DE wheels about 70%

100% rebuilt to manual specs with new pills, shock(37.5F/30R) and 10/10/7 Diff oils, all outdrives and universal pins are like new(see pics). Its been used very little at the track, never abused.



Lastly if this type of post isn't allowed please let me know and I'll remove it.

250-300 would be my asking price. Before they were discontinued they were selling for 400 new pretty much everywhere. With the new truck coming soon it may be a little tougher to sell.
