Why wouldn't someone want the smart diff? I read you said smart diffs can be repurposed as regular diffs, are the smart diffs no good

I looked at the illustrated parts breakdown. If you look carefully at center diff it looks like there might be little springs or something at the end of cross pins before they go in spider gears.

isn't that just a spacer to ease the mounting of the diff ?

Idk, those little pieces. I thought maybe springs acting in centrifugal fashion that disengages spider gears when not under throttle.

That is 1000% guess

Isn't the ESC a hobbywing quicrun 150A and the motor a Leopard 2200kv? The motor can seem longer than the castle and hobbywing 2200kv so it probably has more torque as well. The down side with a high kv motor is that you will have to rev it more to get that torque which equalls more heat. Losi should have put the 1730kv in the truck of this size and weight. It would seem like a perfect combination.

LOSI usually use either a repacked hobbywing or castle esc's but this one I couldn't firgure out which one is it, but from the specs its probably a hobbywing, I just thought someone here might have a better idea that's why I asked.

They should sell rollers or kits, so people can choose their own superior electronics instead.

That is not a SMART Diff. If you look at SMART Diff internal views it's much different than a normal diff with ramp plates and other distinguishing features.

Thanks for posting this pic, I hadn't noticed those little pieces when I viewed the exploded view picture. That is definitely something new and I guess we'll have to wait for actual pictures to find out what they actually are. I don't want to assume but maybe this is why there is a "LSD rebuild kit" in the parts listing. Not a SMART Diff or derivative as I previously presumed/assumed, but definitely not quite a regular Diff and not mentioned in the video either.

Looks like the details of a LSD. Springs on the cross-shaft pushing the spider gears against a friction material.

I can confirm that this is Not a Castle ESC.

Even a..well... person can realize that the ESC look exactly like a hobbywing "quicrun" 150A. To me, the mamba monster X is superior the quickrun 150A.
