I finally had a little time today so I decided it was Upgrade time.
Just some parts I ordered in the last couple of weeks:
-Aluminium C-hubs, caster blocks and axle carriers
-Aluminum Spur gear
-New pinions (went from 52/14 to 54/17)
Coming up next: STRC shock towers (F+R), expected in the next two weeks.
I noticed another part I'd like to upgrade before it breaks while I put on the rear axle carriers: Drive shafts are pretty worn out at the yokes:
I haven't really decided what replacements to use yet. You guys have any ideas/recommendations? I saw lots of threads about using MIP X-Duty, but also many threads about struggling to get them to fit. For now I'll just swap the front and rear driveshafts, as the front ones are a lot less beaten up. At least that gives me a smaller chance of breaking them.
But that'll have to wait until tomorrow, since it's 2:45 a.m. here and I need to start working in about 5 hrs lol.
