    Broken front diff case ;(

    Hey guys. I was running a 2s lipo 2200 mah 35c battery. And yes I wash bashing pretty hard. Standing back flips. Reverse back flips etc. well my truck started grinding when you hit the brakes and when in reverse ,like plastic gears not meshing so I tore it down. And my front diff case was busted in 3 spots, the steing arm tab was ripped through. Overall a big mess. At least it's replaceable. So is there any stronger front diffs? The gears are fine. No stripped teeth and were at a great mesh factory. I don't wanna replace it again soon. . Is there any chassis braces that might help with it?

    Thetoys has some Delrin f/r braces, haven't used them myself. But i haven't heard any negative reviews yet.

    Your lucky you didn't strip your diffs. Back flips are hard on it
    Maybe aluminum bulkheads and one of these http://t-bone-racing.net/Brand-N-Z/T...Revo-p433.html

    Ya thanks. I just now realized the case is called a bulkhead lol. I'm gonna go with a factory till I can afford full aluminum ones. And the tbone brace I'm getting as well.

    I like backflips lol but I think I'm gonna get long travel rockers and bigger tires. And use it for jumps. And just backflip it then lol

    With bigger tires it will help doing back flips on jumps but just don't land under power that's as bad as landing a back flip

    Oh ya I always let off once I've got the jump right. Is it better to go with say factory summit tires and wheels? Or jconcepts 2.2 wheels with goose bump tires.
