Stock, but on carpet. I wonder if the added grip is the issue. Its weird because they both broke right where the threads end.

I will go with Square for aluminum and other aftermarket hop-up parts. They have very high quality products. I say stay away from those not well known manufacturers.

I put the diff back together (Is it just me or is that screw a fraction of an inch short) and the car was running how it is supposed to for another 25-30 minutes when the same thing happened again. I've checked the nut and it has the rubber ring which should lock it in place.

I'm only running the out-of-the-box 540 can. Any suggestions?

Thanks
Just an idea, but you might wanna check that you have the screw on the right side of the diff as per instructions. If the screw is on the wrong side this might happen.

Id love to race an event like that. best ive done is race a 1.5 hr race. 3 drivers, 30 min each, we used a TT-01 and two F103's in foams on carpet

If it wasnt for being completely underprepared (transponders failing, motors blowing, glitching on one car) we would have been very competitive. Its totally fun making pitstops etc.

We ran three segments. First is silver can. Second is black can tamiya, and third was stk motors with bearings. we had all kinds of contraptions for cooling. best idea from one team was a small box glued and strapped to the top of the silver and black can motors, with dry ice inside! the motors were frozen before they started! they were easily the fastest after the first 5 minutes. They won the race easy (of course the following year, dry ice was banned lol)

I may try to get a endurance race going up here we'll see

I checked the diff the screw was the correct way around. I had mistakenly put the nut in upside down. Don't know if that will make a difference. I will find out in approx 25-30 minutes of practice.

Thanks everyone for your help.
