    Are the diff gears metal on the E-Maxx?

    Hello, I was just wondering if the gears inside the diffs of the E-Maxx are metal. If not, it's def something I would want to upgrade... Please help. Thanks in advance.

    as in weights it determines when it will start to diff like one tire will slip and wont stay locked so lets say your off road crawling and need the diffs as locked to get more traction so you would put a really heavy weight so they will want to spend together as if locked but if you have more power it will allow one to spin unlocked so it determins when it will start to have the diff action and if you were on road racing some how you would want light weight so the wheels would spin at diffrent speeds around corners and stuff
