the diff is located in the trans. you remove the trans from the chassis and there should be 3 screws holding the 2 trans case half together remove the screws and the case should pop apart. the largest gear you see is gona be the diff. hope this helps. you can also down load the manual from hpi. also check out rcshortcourse.com for more help

Default New member & RC-less for past ~18yrs

Sayin' hello for my first post as a new member here on RC tech. I haven't been into RC since my mid teen years. Had a Kyosho stadium truck back in the mid '90s and recently had an itch to get another one. Likely I'll be picking up an AE RC10T4.2 rtr to toy around with. But I'm stuck on this new LiPo battery business and trying to figure it out. Have not a clue which battery to get for that truck If anyone would like to fill me in on this and/or make suggestions, that would be appreciated.

You know how you may or may not be a rookie? I mean, I have had an RC for several years now, seems I spent more time working on it than running it. Didn't have a track or anyone to help with advice and such. Well I have broken out the old Nitro truck and got it running again, finally broke in that new engine I had put in a few year back. Converted to brushless on my slash, and bought a Associated B4 in pieces... Spent as much on parts to get it together as if I had just bought a new B4.2 kit, but that's just bitterness talking.

Anyway, looking forward to learning things I should have known a long time ago. Got a track close to me and as soon as I have the B$ put together, going to go meet some racers and learn a bit.

Hi Everyone. *waves*

I'm a mom but still a girl who loves to play outside. I'm happily married to our son's dad, a boy who loves to play outside too.

~
I live not North enough of Southern California.
~

I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, camping, traveling, adventure, and exploring new or rediscovering previously visited places. I drag the family out of bed in the middle of the night to watch meteor showers. Load up the van with creature comforts and head off to the local mountains where the city lights don't interfere.

~
Bought our two sons each a 1/10 scale Traxxis Slash, one has since upgraded to brushless after the factory installed Titan blew, which, I'm sorry to say didn't take long.

~
Love RC cars but barely afford 2 son's hobby. I am considering getting 4 mini RC's to race and bash with the boys as a family thing while they recharge or wait to repair their 1/10 scale cars.

~

Aside from RC, I like driving my real car and will sneak in an occasional brody in the dessert or on a wide dirt road if given half a chance. Spent a lot of time in my uncle's Baja Bug, 4 wheeling in an old jeep, and grew up on mini dirt bikes. Give me a quick five speed manual stick for the paved mountain roads and a 4x4 CJ7 with a roll bar for off road and I'm a happy camper.

Hi! :P I'm from South Africa and I new to the forum but not to R/C Nitro. I know nothing about Electric R/C cars I'm still a total noob with electric I love Nitro and electric but I just haven't had the time to go check out some electric trucks. I have been doing Nitro for about 3 years now and I still think I qualify as a rookie. I recently got me a manic and I love it I am collecting the schumacher trucks now. My first truck was a Nanda Raptor and after a few gearbox problems I decided to convert it to single speed and oh boy was that a fun truck. I decided to sell the Raptor for a few bucks and then I waited a few months and then I got me the Schumacher Havoc with a few upgrades and it was the best thing I have done its one of the most reliable trucks I have ever used its a monster. Then I got my manic a few weeks ago and this thing goes like hell it runs the havoc to a stand still in a straight line and around a track though the manic wouldn't do so good on a bash as the havoc does I have noticed that a few times already xD.

Thank you for reading and I'm very happy to be part of the community Any south african R/C fans please feel free to P.M to arrange a bash or a race

Hello,

New guy that got out of the sport in 1995 and thinking about getting back into racing again. Starting to look around and do some research on what to buy. I figured I'd get a 1/10 offroad buggy since that's what I raced last but that doesn't seem to be popular in my area. It appears that 1/8 electric is the new ticket so trying to catch up my reading on cars, ESC, radio, batt, motor, etc..

Any threads with a quick rundown of what's legal currently to run in each class?

Back to searching and reading..
