Sure SteveSteve

The front bulkheads are farther apart then the rear ones. So where the bearing sits on the diff is different. You could use a rear diff in the front, but will require alot of shimming.

Ok for those who would want to shim the diff Schumacher make the perfect shims for that because they shim there diff on their car!! Havent had to worry about it since I mainly run asphault with a spool but its good to know for when I go to carpet. BTW anygood carpet rubber tire set ups out there?? If so if you could please email it to me at [email protected]

Thanks Bryan

I am not sure if they have the parts yet on their website but I am pretty sure PNP Hobies has parts. Their website is pnphobbies.net

Take it easy... Didn't you think the reason they haven't yet published one is that they are still testing several things, did you? As we can read somewhere in this forum already they are coming out with a foam version soon so you will have the basic foam setup in the same time. Until that we can practice (and let Jeff to work on the S400 )
