The following picture includes the Nikita outdrive on the left, and the XRay Aluminum outdrive on the left.

For anyone confused the XRay outdrive is on the right. Mike is an ambidextrous left hander, hence the typo!

how well do you clean/lub the shafts i try to do mine every weekend or after every weekend , and a good quality grease is important
I have been wanting to upgrade to the ECS shafts, I will certainly be wrapping those if I get them given how expensive they are.

This was probably the third time I've ran my new T3'11 so I hadn't really taken apart the shaft to inspect it - although I will start making it a habit from now on - as for grease I think it was the HUDY graphite tub from the kit?

Driveshaft covers and no grubscrews? Sound too good to be true! - Will have a look for them, thanks

Certainly a busted pin would make a mess of the axle and other components.

I have just finished stripping down the chassis and re-building with new bearings. I note the instruction manual says to ensure the front steering uprights do not bind on the C Hubs. I did back these of fractionally but noticed the front end chatter at full lock. I have backed them off till the chatter stops which has left about a 1.5mm gap to the C Hub (about 80% on my M11 radio).

This has all been on the bench and I hope to have my first run tomorrow night.

My car came with the optional Top Racing pin retainers. These are used in place of the heat shrink you mentioned.
Thanks for the tip - the retainers look really cool. Do they require some force to put them on, I'm just wondering how else the retainer stays stable when the shaft is rotating at speed.

No force required. One edge is curved so they sit neatly around the axle and keep the pins in - too easy

Man thanks so much for posting that! Since this is totally the for sale section and it's the LRP thread as well! Go to the right thread.

Spec-R sells a 34t gear diff that would fit in a T2'008/T2'009. I believe this size diff would fit in your bulkheads, but require new/larger drive shafts.

Default Spec R gear diff

I want to test a diff in the front. Can someone tell me what you found works best for oil in the front? How was it different from a spool?

Cleaning gum works the best. Months ago I tried 300K then I went to 500K which was better but the best was the gum. The diff with gum generated more initial than with 500K or a spool and finished the corner about the same as a spool.

Fred, I used that stuff last night to clean my chassis. I was impressed! Where can I get some of that gum?
