With these posts, I was able to use different bodies that have the hood straight.

What do you do with the two smaller shims they give you while building the diff cases on the D817T? The manual doesn't say.

Mine doesn't show that. I have one of the first kits out. They must of added that later. Do you mind showing a pic of your manual?

Never mind I figured it out.

I have a D8T / D817T Hybrid and it runs just as good as any of the other Truggys in my opinion. It still has The D8T front end and chassis but has the D817T rear and diffs as well as the new hard arms. I use the base set up for the D817T as my set up and It runs very good. I don't race it all that often but when I do I feel it's very competitive.

Shim the diffs according to backlash. I normally add one shim under the bearing for the pinion. This pushes the pinion in the case a hair. I than shim with one or two shims the side of diff itself depending on backlash. If you don't shim your diff properly, it will eat itself.
