I took the time, and My daughter and I found the Dogbone I lost in the parking lot. I felt like I found a twenty dollar bill.

Yeah

I did happen to by some universals though

thanks for the link.

Default rear shock tower

found that my rear shock tower looses its screws after some running, besides putting thread lock or oversizing the screws is there any other remedy to it?

Are the screws the ones that hold the shocks? If they are, then you can just put nylon lock nuts at the end of the screws.

Sounds like the bulkhead holes are stripped. You can use CA glue to hold the screws in place or just replace the bulkheads. You might want to wait until you need to replace the rear belt, and just do it all at once.
Did you over-tighten the screws....?

over-tighten? probably! when i'm in a hurry specially late at night and i want to finish the set-up, i have this bad habbit of over-tightening the screws. its hard to avoid this sometimes. but here's the tip, a friend of mine just to told me to put a very thin copper wire in the screw holes, 1 or 2 wires might do it anyway, thanks for the tip

remove the screws and put a drop of CA in the threaded holes. Let it dry, and the dried CA will make the hole small enough to re-thread the hole and allow the screws to be fully tightened. you can do this on all plastic parts to allow good thread engagement without stripping.

Default Mtx 3 Ball Diff

Haven't checked the forum yet so this may already be answered somewhere else. Just wondering if a rear ball diff exists for the MTX 3.

Thanks in advance.

Kawahara makes a solid piece to insert into your front diff to lock it up, try Eddie the fish to see if he has 1.
