Careful when you run the COR79262 in the rear. Use a washer with more surface area to distribute the stress to the tower during side impacts. The longer dimensions acts as a lever and breaks shock towers easier when using the outside holes. I learned this the hard way.

I have found if you use blue locktite it seems to stay where I set it. At least until I rebuild it. Which is usually 5-6 races. Hope this helps.

Wait, so the new uprights are like xray or hot bodies ones right, where the ball studs point up? When I put that part number in on the corally website, it showed a picture of the old style uprights where the ball studs mount horizontal.

Absolutely! You may have to dremel away a bit of the underside of the nut insert in the right rear corner of the upper deck. Same as if fitting the Orion 3800 packs too.

But, the SMC 5000 lipo pack with the Specialized Offset Battery Bracket is the better way to go. Balances the Phi perfectly from side-to-side.

It's hard to say the ones that came with the car as corally updates kits and includes the newer parts. Go to www.corallyusa.com and scroll down a bit on the front page and it'll show you the "08 diff" Compare and see if you have that or the one that originally came with the kit.

I would have to agree with StillBill the 5000's are the way to go. You can get the offset for around 35.00 from www.corallyusa.com. Be sure to buy plenty of the brass bolt on weights to insure that you can balance the car properly.

ok i see what your saying now its not the o8 diff its the one before that with the plastic nut.
i looked back threw the thread and found one of the reasons it is coming loose because some kits didn't come with the cone washer so i put the cone washer in and thought it would be golden and it still came loose.
i have not tried locktite i will give that a go

Thanks

I know instead of having all kinds of weights bolted onto your car. I've been using the bottom part of the TRU BALANCE EZ LI-PO weight.

All you have to do is shim the offset li-po holder from corally 2mm so the plate can go underneath of it and tighten the offset up and put your battery in and your done...no bolted on weights at all...

i can prolly post up some pics if need be to understand. I'm not the best at describing things...

Pick up a 08 diff if you can and some ceramic diff balls. It is by far the best diff for a electric TC.

another problem you could be having is the threads on your outdrive is the first version and i believe those are the thicker threads... (not the fine threads)

I could be wrong but kenny L might be bale to tell you for sure i know he's on here alot with good info...

But i was having the same problem... I had the new diff nut but the old outdrive and they wouldn't stay tight... Even if i glued it on it wouldn't stay tight... That could also be your problem and somthing for you to check out

Tom - I would highly suggest investing in the new '08 diffs. They are worth their weight in gold. However, if you are planning on staying with the older version diffs there are a few things you should do. First, call Corally USA and order new diff nuts. This will probably solve your problem. If you still want to use loctite, make sure you only use a very small amount on the inside of the nut itself. I have seen too many diffs where they put the loctite on the aluminum shaft and the bottom bearing gets loctited on to the shaft. You will also need to order thrust bearing assemblies from Corally USA. Hope this helps.

Thanks - Brad
