Congrats to everyone on the team for their runs at the carpet nats. Lots of bad luck going around but everyone kept their head up and worked hard.

Congrats to Josh and Brian for their rubber tire runs. Not bad for some year old 13.5s.

Thanks Mike Blackstock for the laughs, and the lessons on the correct way to tape the batteries in your 12th scale lol

Thanks Robbie and Jeff for everything, and Larry for all your help getting my 12th scale setup.

it seems like most of this thread is about crappy diffs and li-pos not fitting. hopefully corally can come up with a diff fix on that issue and update the kits instead of well, buy this and that and youll be ok . and mr. josh the mad scientist can hook us up with his great inventions on the li-pos. you the man josh.

I don't get the diff problems. They are very easy to build and smooth as can be. You just have to take care of them. Clean them once in awhile.

Have you tried replacing the thrust bearing with the 1/12 diff spacer (part # 75296)?

You also replace the 1/4x3/8 unflanged bearing with a 1/4x3/8 flanged bearing. But you install it from "other" side of the outdrive instead.

i.e. The old unflanged bearing goes in the "diff ring" side...the new flanged bearing goes in through the "diff nut" side.

You use the same cone "belleville" washer and diff nut. You're basically making the diff work like a 1/12 scale.

I'm sure this mod has been covered somewhere else in this thread.

Eddie, I just ran all week @ the carpet nats w/out rebuilding the diff. I have changed out the thrust bearing to use the 12x washer.

Well beings that I raced with him at the nats this last week I'd say he ran on carpet... Unless there was somthing I was clearly missing... Could of been what I was doing wrong all weekend lol .. I have no problems with the diffs either, but oh well.


I just can't wait to see Josh's setup.. So i can see why I sucked so badly

Yeah I was kinda on carpet for a week too. Never touched my diff. Replace the thrust with the 12x spacer and your money.


And if I were yall, I'd be asking to see that Stanton guys setup too. He seemed pretty fast

If your only getting 2-3 runs out of your diffs I think you might have a setup problem. If you constantly unload 1 of the rear tires it will trash your diff.

I went all week on 1 rebuild........and that was just from boredom.
