I didnít say there was no difference just that it is not worth the money when there is a new truck with basically the same diffs in it. The money is better spent on the new platform.

The point of the ht diffs was to get more oil so they would be more consistent and give more drive out of corners. A kyosho front or rear diff holds like twice the oil of the smaller Mugen diffs.

if you havenít built a Pillow Ball Mugen before, just take your time when putting in the alloy caps into the hubs to ensure you donít cross thread them. Also, install the spring collars on the Shock bodies from the top, rather than the bottom, and use a bit of green slime or tiny amount of grease or shock fluid on the o ring thatís inside the collars, to ensure they donít get damaged by the threads.

Iíd start with the box set up, and modify from there if you have too.

Enjoy the build, itís a beautiful kit to build

cheers

I ended up using Caseyís set up I got off him. However I used an alloy servo saver. Truck is heaps dialled on low medium bite rough track. Thanks for your tips, went together a breeze
