What's the difference between the two kits? Is it something silly like the decal sheet?

Yes, the difference between the "Hahn kit" and the "Reinert kit" is only the decal sheet.

Who's interested in running these trucks.. with trailers? Does that interest you?

I have some ideas on how to build the trailer, but I need some more information to "get it right" Like, how much the trailer should weigh. What a "single axle" trailer should weigh? Obviously it should use euro truck wheels and tires.

I'm refreshing my truck, and I'm out of Tamiya diff grease, and out of associated clear grease.
Is there anything else I can use or should I get some more tamiya / associated grease?
running on indoor, non a/c black carpet, currently has low traction

grease for the diffs. I run everything else dry (shocks, drive cups)
Our track changes in traction, in the summer time it gets greasy and traction goes down due to heat the humidity. In the winter time traction goes up......

I use wheel bearing grease in mine and some of my friends use silicone grease for boat motors.

Yep, however if you put aside the gray area stuff and look at what he did to get the tranny smooth etc and putting in 25 mil to make the front diff like a spool pretty cool stuff. Both of these were within the rules just not the ballast under the arms

itís an interesting idea. But would take a lot to actually get the idea to work. Itís more then just making a trailer. The track would be need to changed radically to make any kind of turns. And considering that from what Iíve seen on liveRC, Euro truck class has disappeared
