    Not acceptable in the least! Don't they know that you have responsibilities???

    Well, they sure ain't as pretty as the Traxxas versions but since in the best of possible worlds they won't be seen, that's okay.

    Looking forward to the review. Tonight.

    Cant tell yet,it appears to be a coating from the hardening but not sure...
    They are not cheap .... But nothing in this obsession/addiction/hobby is it seems.

    So they are finally for sale. Do you have the aluminum diff cups. If so how does they fit together? Any shimming needed? Looking forward to updates.

    They are not for sale yet.. Just testing
    Yes I have the aluminum diff cups.
    If these work well ,haven't run them or installed them yet. Hopefully get time on the weekend,this pesky job thing keeps getting in the way....lol. There is talk of whether the pinion and other output gears will be needed.i haven't managed to break any of those ( other than the famous #5678 issue) when I first got mine 3 years ago or so. Many .....many miles on mine.I have worn more stuff out than broken things.this truck is amazingly durable.

    Hey Jam any update. If you need time off for RC stuff you can always take a month off for maternity leave. I think most of our trucks would financially qualify as a baby anyway.

    Tekin is back in,so this weekend we shall see how it feels about that.
    WARNING. ---Brushless power in a summit set up for crawl/iming may cause serious lapses in judgment-----
    Don't worry I have it under control....
    5 minutes later here hold my(Beverage of choice) and watch this ....lol

    Update for those who would like to know.

    the gears are out of steel, not coated but professionally hardened by
    a German company. The black color is from the salt based hardening
    process
    - the special hardening method is the only way to harden the small gears
    without making them too hard, normal hardening will cause them breaking
    like glass
    - the gears are not turned or molded, the are milled tooth by tooth, the
    small ones need a longer manufacturing time than the big ones (ring
    gear)
    - I think that this hardened steel gears make only sense in non flexing
    cups like the AL7075 ones

    Great stuff but the stock traxxas diff can hold up to slow rock climbing, hills and the avarage. What the masses would like is more testing such as;
    1 - how does it hold up in 2nd gear bashing around and climbing.
    2 - how does it hold up to extra big tires with high torque servo in a high traction area ( where mine failed)
    3 - How does it do in a high speed test run when one forgets to unlock the diffs.
    4 - How does it handles hard acceleration from a stand still with a brushless system.

    No these are not the ways the summit was intended to be driven but we are talking about reality.

    Has they mentioned a price range? I am waiting to purchase the gears and the diff at the same time.

    Thanks greatly for your efforts.

    Mine ate,yes ate diffs at a alarming rate
    With the stock system. I do run it in hard conditions and had big tires.
    Tekin is back in may throw the crushers on again and give it a blast.
    I went this far because I want it reliable.
    Waiting for parts and rebuilding the diffs
    Is not as much fun as running the truck
    Changing axles and shafts on the trail is
    Quick,easy and cheap.matter of minutes im back running
    Going out today to give it some testing/Abuse
    Prices will be on his site shortly

    so now with the diff bomb proof it will be the axles that are the problem for some people lol

    got a question the kit the comes with the 6 output shafts are they just for the diff or is the two of them the pinion?

    They should work fine the only real difference is the locker output is longer other than that they are the same parts I believe

    I read a post somewhere recently but can't find it again. Someone was heat treating all inner differential parts by heating till red and dropping in oil then reheating and quenching in water. This post claimed that stock parts would shatter or snap under moderate pressure but that treated parts were noted to bend instead of break and that much heavier pressure was needed to bend them. What do you think?
