    stripped out front diff

    so the front wheels were grinding so I pulled the front diff apart and the two little gears are toast! Where should I look? Do I have to buy a whole new diff or can I get just the two gears I need?

    I have heard that eBay is the best place to buy full diff sets...

    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    You can also get just the spider gears if you choose that as well # 5382x
    Having a spare diff doesn't hurt either

    as always you guys rock! I'll get a set of spider gears off e-bay. Is this common (stripping them out) I do run it hard, I'm not easy on it by any stretch.

    I would see if Robinson makes a set for the Summit.

    Their gears are the best and I used Robinson's gears back years ago when I was stripping TMaxx gears.

    That sucks, as they have good stuff.

    Guess not enough market for the Summit for them to make a good profit.

    The same gears are in the EMaxx, ERevo, and I think the Revo and TMaxx.

    There is one company that has produced a hardened set, but I am not sure if they are in production yet.

    Good luck with the rebuild...make sure you shim that diff; to get better gear mesh and longer life. It would be handy to keep 20mm, 8mm and 6mm shims on hand to shim a summit diff. I am a firm believer in diff shimming.

    Scroll to the bottom. However, note: "Not in stock, please ask if available and reserve"
    Price seems to be 119 + 13 shipping, or approximately $172 and 2.

    That is some pricey hardware there...it would be terrible if one did strip at the price .
