Does anyone know if the corally twisted battery connectors are compatible with the orion ones?

I broke a diff screw yesterday. Any tips on getting the broken screw out of the side of the diff without the head on it?

I broke the diff screw a few months ago. Dremel disks do not have a large enough diameter to reach the screw. Get a very thin hand metal saw and cut a slot into the plastic nut and screw from the outside of the diff half. Then you should be able to turn the screw out with a very small flat screwdriver.

Have you guys ever had a problem with the droop screws rubbing holes in the chassie? There not that bad but looks like it could get worse? I have only run the car 1 night.


Thanks

Hi Drew,
yeah thats normal if you knwo what a force there is in those droop screws in the chassis you should understand! Bit it wouldn't get worse, till it get worse your chassis is already F* up and tweaked!

There's two thing you could do first most Hobby Shop sell thin strip of copper you can place under the droop screws and next you can drill a bigger hole like the one XRay use you might not have enough space to do the bigger hole but you can give it a try hope this help.

There was some talk about that a few pages back if you search you will find some information.

I looked and all I found was someone saying you had to buy the whole half new again.

Which is the new reinforced diff screw - the one threaded all the way or the one that isnt? I think thats the diff but wasnt sure which was the stronger one.

The screw without the threads at the top is the new, stronger one.

Some have had success using a hair dryer or heat gun to heat up the diff half which expands the aluminum allowing the plastic to be removed easier. It has been said Corally USA will hook you up with just the plastic nut, as well as some LHS's so you don't have to buy the entire diff half.

Spool / Blade Question

I searched this and other threads for something similar to my problem, but got nothing specific. Hope you guys can help out.
I installed a spool tonight, but the metal blades seem like they are WAY too tight when putting them in the spool. Once together the front end bounces up and down because the the blades are so tight they keep the bones from moving freely.

Any idea whats up with this? I can post a pic or video if anyone needs!

I had the same problem, I just got a file and took a little off the spool. It worked like a charm.
