cheech4,

It's in the diff tube. You'll see the diff screw on the same side as the diff pulley. It's on page 5 step B-03 in the manual.

the car is great everywhere else. may be a little push but ill see if its that or just because i was not using brakes

Lipo will not fit in this car w/o serious modification and it is not worth it. You may get a soft cell one to work but then you have the issue as to whether the track you race will allow it. Either get NimH batteries or sell it to buy a Type R if you want to run Lipo.

Do you guys normally run the ball stud on the steering knuckles pointing down or up? Also how much bump steer do you usually run?

This question has probley already been asked but I'm going to ask it any way. I got a Novak GTB and tried to run a 4.5 but I can't get a small enough pinion on without it rubbing against the pulley to get the right gear ratio. Then I tried running a 13.5, but then I couldn't get a big enough pinion on without it rubbing against the servo horn. Does anyone else run the original JRXS with brushless?
