I only do the battery slots and smooth up the bottom edge of the chassis. I personally dont see a need to CA glue or smooth other parts. (but that's just me)

Is there any performance benefit to be gained, when gluing the entire edge of the chassis?

IMO the only benefit is sanding the bottom edge because if your chassis drags in a sweeper or something it wont dig into the carpet as badly a the sharp edge.

Here's a little tidbit I discovered the hard way this weekend. The Mabuchi silver can motor doesn't fit in a 007.

CAing the chassis edges will slightly stiffen the chassis a little more. If your running foams on high bite carpet, then there may be a small amount of performance gain in this case. But it probably won't be noticeable to you.

However, the main reason for CAing the chassis edges is to keep the edges from splitting if it gets hit hard in a crash.

Default diff

Hey fellas
What are you modified guys doing to try to make your rear diffs last longer.
I usually have to tighten mine up reasonably tight so it doesn't slip and every 1 or 2 meets it's really gritty and the car loses rear traction so then i usually turn over all the plates and slightly grease the plates with the grease that comes in the kit. Am i doing something wrong or does anyone have any tips on what to do.
THANKS!!

i HAVEN'T REBUILT MY DIFF SINCE i FIRST PUT THE CAR TOGETHER. i'VE RUN MOD A TOTAL OF TWO BATTERY PACKS AND THE REST HAS BEEN 19 TURN. i'VE RUN THE CAR SINCE IT FIRST CAME OUT SO THAT SHOULD GIVE YOU AN IDEA AS TO HOW LONG IT'S BEEN GOING STRONG. ARE YOU BREAKING IN THE DIFF BEFORE YOU HIT THE TRACK? I'm not yelling either.......I just saw that the caps lock was on and I'm too lazy to re-type all this.....LOL

Putting a silver can in a 007 is like buying a Ferrari and putting a civic motor in it.

Default diff

Whats the best way to brake the diff in.
Usually i just hold 1 wheel and let the other one free wheel for 30sec then do the other side.
Whats the best way.

Rebuild the diff, leave it fairly loose, do a few laps on the track, bring the car in tighten a bit, do a few more laps, bring the car in tighten some more, keep doing this until desired "tightness" is achieved.

You shouldn't turn over the XRAY diff rings (per XRAY)...they come slightly scuffed on one side to prevent the diff outdrive from slipping against the ring.

I'll have my spare 4300 if you need it as well (same one you used at the NWCC)

....Alexia is on her way, according to USPS website should take 2 days and she was shipped yesterday ...so should have plenty of time to throw the STLNLST setup on her and electrocnis with the 4300.
