    Yea, I just put a new slipper and pads on i cranked it down and gave it a 1/4 turn back. Works well with 2s but 3s i guess not so much.

    I blew both rear tires out in 10 mins, gotta love that kindof power though! I will never go back to 2S, even if it means replacing more broken parts, its worth it to me because 3S is so much more fun.

    3s when its wet out on black top is killing me. I either want it to pic up the front end or go straight. These doughnuts are killing me. I think my dif silicone is too thick.

    Even with a full open diff it will do doughnuts or go to the left or right uncontrollably from tire expansion. Remember when it diffs out the tire spinning is going twice the speed it should so if your geared for 40 its making 80.

    I recently destroyed the gears in my diff on 3s, so I filled it with jb weld. Then I put it back together and melted the hub and wheel. Gotta love 3s. So now I could buy aluminum wheels or go back to 2s. I should probably buy aluminum wheels
