pro3racer, I had a losi diff screw once that did not have threads on it. It was a QC screw up. are you using a new or old screw?

older screw, i know it has threads on it, the nut has threads on it, but does the little plastic housing the nut goes in, with those two little tabs on each side. Do you need to run with that, i have my diff together, but that is still on the table. I read the instructions i printed off. I put 6 concave washers in, then the nut/nut housing on. i threaded the screw threw the nut, but then it would stop, and the housing kept fallin out. So i took the housing off, and everything worked fine. Now i can see the nut, screw, from one side(other being the flat head end).

You HAVE to use the tnut! It and the nut usually come as one piece now. Without it, the the nut will spin and come loose.

There is your problem.

thank you! I was at the lhs today, and bought a bag of diff parts, and i just need the spacers, but there was another nut in there, but with like a solid silver thing in the middle, where the nut would be, and the silver thing has theads in it, is that the one piece thing. It looks like a big spacer in the middle of the nut.

Default springs ?

Anyone know which shock springs are interchangable between car manufacturers - associated, hpi, losi, xray, and yokomo?

The losi site has exploded views of the diff assembly. Typically the tnut and nut come already together, but occasionally the nut is out. HG made a solid piece of threaded aluminum to replace the nut/tnut combo. I used one on my XXX, but it is a bit heavier than the stock combo.....and additional rotating mass SUCKS in onroad.

Pro3Racer.....This is how the new style diff nut comes from Losi. You do not have to place that little 4-40 lock nut in the t-nut any longer. It comes just as you described and they are better then the old ones IMHO. Also make sure that you do not get the "Monster" diff bolt and nut....the T-nut part is too long and it wont let the CVD move all the way into the outdrive and this will limit your suspension travel. On the packaging it says "Monster" on it so you know which one it is.....Im not sure on the part number.
