    Revo support carrier

    I have been reading that a lot of you guys are using that revo support carrier. Is the part # 5383x. If it is then I can't find it, even on the traxxas site. Help please.

    When I look that # up, I see the whole kit. Spider gears, output gears, pin and the support carrier. So do I have to order all of it?

    Not sure how it works, but if it will protect my diff"s then I want them. Just can't figure out how to just purchase the support without buying the complete kit. Anyone have a answer for this?

    Yes you do have to buy all the kit but it is worth it it stop the diff cup from warping and makes sure the spider gear never strip each other under the all torque that some of the bigger motor combos people use

    Just not sure what you guys are trying to achieve. I have the stock diffs with my own mix of a much thicker fluid. I have had the mmp sct 2400 combo for almost a year and have blown just about everything up on the truck but the diffs. I assume I will rebuild them some day as a routine maintenance but ...knock on wood.... they are holding up superbly!

    Just so I'm understanding this right. The only part I can use in this kit,is the dog-bone shaped part.That supports the spider gear shaft.Or can all the gears also be used?

    Thought about it for a while but no, probably a rustler and or a 1:16 to upgrade, if I get both then the upgrades might be limited so it's a tough decision
