    What are your temps when pulling it off the track with the 14t? If you have room to go up in temp, try the 15t. Back when I ran the stock stuff, I used the 15t for racing and it worked well for my...

    D8 buggy shocks. I chucked my Prolines in favor of them. Price is a wash between the two.

    Depends on conditions. If all four tires have the same grip on a given surface, the truck will accelerate at the same speed using the center diff. Top speed will always be the same, but the slipper...

    With the slipper, the front/rear are locked together. With the center diff, they are not. You want the slipper if you want them locked.

    It's funny because I've heard people say these motors are slow on 2s. :lol:

    I was pulling it off the track after 10mins of solid running like this and the temp was always around 90F - 100F. It...

    I had Proline Powerstrokes before, with the tuning spring set. I tried the soft springs, but they required too much preload to get a normal ride height, leaving me pretty much with the standard set...

    So I haven't actually been able to run the truck at the track until today with the D8 shocks installed. It's on private property and the season is over so getting out there is difficult. Me and a...

    I've never used tire bands or regular rubber bands when gluing up tires...and never have had an issue. Those tires will easily seat in the bead grooves of those wheels. Super easy to glue them.

    Pull the back half of the truck off, stick your finger in the bearing and spin it. If it's super gritty, it may be a good time to replace it. If still smooth, leave it be. It's a whopping four screws...

    My Teknos have been awesome. Same design as the RC8 CVD's with captured crosspins and big bearings. Simple, easy, strong, and light.

    Bearing is probably seized, or had been seized in the past and wore down the center diff. Common issue.

    Traxxas says not to use 3s with the center diff, but I've never had an issue with it. There...

    Both their CVD's and the 17mm axle adapters are based on current 1/8 scale stuff, so it's all pretty beefy and can handle just about anything.

    I can make the truck sit just as high as I could with the Prolines or the stock shocks. And they compress to a little more than fully bottomed out.

    I don't think I've heard of a single issue with the Tekno CVD's since they revised them back in the middle of the summer. Mine have held up great.
