    Cool Differential output pin sheered off



    This happened a few months ago and I'm just now getting around to fixing it. I jumpped over a hill into a bush that was also hiding a cylinder block (I didnt see it until after I landed on it). Good times!

    The damage looks like a smashed pushrod into the driveshaft and sheered off the output pin on the differential side. Also broker the lower A-arm.

    Am I missing anything with this parts list? (I realize some of the parts are for the other side- for spares)

    (already have a spare pushrod)
    Diff fluid- weight???

    What is the stock weight differential fluid I should pick up? Also if you have any links to a differential rebuild write-up, please post it!

    The stock diff fluid is 30K. Here is the link to get the diff out the easy way. http://traxxas.com/support/Different...ion-and-Summit
    I coulldn't find any steps on how to rebuild the diff, sorry.

    30K not 30wt! Big difference between shock oil and diff oil!

    Stock differential fluid is 100K... not 30K.

    I have pounded the push rods out straight with a hammer.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
