    Question Diff upgrades?

    The last couple of days I have heard an annoying clicking noise comming from my rear diff, so i took it appart to find that the gears arent meshing properly. I have only had this car for about 1 1/2 weeks and my diff is begining to wear out. My question is there any way to make my diff stronger or make the diff less prone to stripping. Is there an alternative diff that can be installed in my car wich is stronger, any help would be appreciated!

    My specs: Mini E Revo
    Velenion Motor
    Traxxas 2s Lipo
    1/10 scale traxxas tires

    Ps, the clicking started before I added the new tires.

    You could pick up some associated 21141 shims. I also run hr aluminum diff cups and aluminum bulkheads

    definitely shim the diffs with those team associated 21141 shims as snug as possible without causing binding.

    smaller wheels/tires would help a lot but shimming should be good enough if you still want to use the 1/10th scale wheels/tires.

    if the ring and pinion are new they will break in and may need to be shimmed again. when shimming if a little tight will wear in after a few packs

    If you are near Lexington NC I could hook you up with all kinds of shims! I burned out a bunch of .005, .010, and .015 out of some stainless on the wire edm.

    If you're ordering integy parts, you're just setting yourself up for more problems

    (Their parts are crap) they have maybe three decent parts worth looking at

    How do you like the HR bulkheads? How's the fit and overall quality? They are pricey but if they are really nice it helps to justify it. The second retaing screw seems like a good idea to me
