    Traxxas diffs uses only 2 spiders, and that's the reason stock E-Maxx uses 30K front and I guess maybe only greased rear? My stock rear diff is definitely lighter, compared to front diff.

    And I'm wondering why you choose thicker oil in rear diff than front diff. It would be pushing the car, making it less controllable.

    3K rear and 7K front would seem to be a common setup, although we're not completely talking truggy race-setup here. Personally r5K-f10k seems to work fine in a MT with 1/8 scale diffs and slipperclutch. To add control and prevent wheelies somehow, install the Traxxas CD and choose 500k oil if you still like little more 4WD off-road action.

    Always lighter rear diff oil than front:

    Petraeus,

    You're right, I mistakenly wrote it backwards. I meant 10k Front, 5k Rear...

    You're suggested 7k Front, 3K Rear is a good suggestion also..

    Thanks,
    Raz

    I'm negotiating shipping charges for France with Plastixs, they propose me $45. I'm waiting for their last offer.
    Try to negotiate too : sales@plastixs.com.

    The HPI cups for tranny box are 86276 (with 86094 screws), if it's what you're looking for.

    I belive they are 3mm. They are not very long ,they have to fit flush on the bottom of the bulk so the skidplate will sit flush. They should have came with your bulkheads ,mine did.

    In my search I found this UK company:

    http://www.berger-tools.co.uk/catego...?CategoryID=11

    And I'm pretty confident these ejector-pins:



    ..would be same as these from Plastixs

    ^^Nice find !
    They don't display all their items on their website, but I read their catalog, these E13 ejector pins (page 13) are the same as the Plastixs Through-Hardened Straight Ejector Pins :



    I asked them the price for 15 of these pins (specs : d1=1/8", d2=1/4", k=1/8", L=4").

    I went ahead and contacted berger-tools. This is their answer:

    The E13 are the same as DIN1530AH as far as hardness goes 602 HRC with the head tempered to 455 HRC.
    These are the same as the Plastixs through hardened pins too.

    This is the reply I received today:

    14 DIN1530AH Ejector pin t.h. HT3 HD6 3,2X100 1.49Each 20.86
    1 AIRSURE+ Carriage Charge 11.20

    Would someone be able to confirm 3.2mm diameter are the right dimensions?

    Great ! They still didn't reply to my question... They don't like French

    Stock/Lunsford/FLM hinge pins diameter : 3mm.
    Plastixs ejector pins diameter : 1/8" (3.2mm). It works I use them.

    They seems to offer 3.1 also.
    Maybe it's a stupid question - but why are we using 3.2 if stock is 3.0?
    Would 3.1 be even better?

    At Plastixs, 1/8" is the closest diameter to the stock 3mm diameter. That's why I use that.
    But at Berger Tools the choice is wider. 3.1mm is perfect (1/8" = 3.175mm so 3.2mm will be too big).

    Well I bent an Ejector Pin today, not real bad. So I guess they are bendable.

    You've already broken one ? How ?
    Which model and where did you buy them ?

    For information, E13-1/8-4 ejector pins from Berger Tools are 0.87 each ($1.38) [and shipping charges for France are 11.20 ($17.78). Much better than Plastixs ].

    I'm not too sure on how, maybe on of my cart wheels. They were the hardened ones and I bought them from the link I posted before.

    Maybe the steering bellcrank rubs against ejector pin tips ? But cartwheels are probably the cause.

    Ok well I put a Little Video together of assembly of these Hybrid bulks. I am no expert on making how to videos but this should be good enough to help you get them together. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv7HH1CevwE

    I mailed FLM to ask about this issue. This is what they replied.

    "We are in process of getting the new diff shafts done now. So anything that has shipped up until now has the shorter shafts in it. However anyone needing the longer shafts will have them shipped at no cost."

    Since the Hybrid Bulks are in backorder at my LHS, who's awaiting a new batch from FLM, hopefully I will get the new ones.

    When you say drive shafts i think the ones that run from the transmission to the diff and when you say cvd they are the ones that run from the diff to tire I think what he meant to say was the stubs that come with the diffs so you can use your cvds a longer shaft for the outdrives wont help you at all!
