The center 1 way is something I havent tried yet, havent found a need for any more steering on the car. It's another thing to test with though..

Wow! if thats the case, I'd definately want to install and try it.

I just built the diff with the ceramic balls and thrust balls that came along with it and it is soooooooooooooooo smooth. Now all I got to do is go down to Speedtech RC and buy another input gear because I broke one trying to clamp it with my needlenose like the instruction said. Question is, how the heck do you insert that through the second bearing? since there aren't really room to clamp it to begin with. The picture looks like the needlenose clamps after the 1st bearing but in reality, there aren't any room so I had to clamp it from behind the 1st bearing. The first one went in ok, but the second one snapped. Sucks!

I used really long thin pliers to do the second bearing. Check your PM though.

Yes, they still need lubrication to make the rings last.

RM, so your Pinky will be your main car then? Sounds like your not going to run your Web Special? Or is it saved for brushless.

The pink car is going to be brushless, it will be my main car. The web special will be saved mainly for stock racing, which I'll do at big events, and I'll switch out the pink car to modified for those events. Just want to keep my web special as new as I can.
