So I have read 100 threads on the LST2 diff mod and I am ready to take the plunge....
But I want to know what I actually need to buy to get this job done.
Recently I did the single steering conversion with a Hitec 79XX servo and am stoked with the upgrade. However before doing it a lot of people say you need a servo horn, single arm ( get Aluminium) etc. However when I bought my servo (NIB) it came with an Aluminium servo horn and you don't need ANYTHING else to do the conversion. Just install servo, plug into receiver, use the stock parts plus the horn you get and your done - only need to buy a servo.
1) What do I actually need for the LST2 diff mod?
2) Is this the diff I need? It seems it comes with the centre driveshaft? Do I need this? Coz there is a slightly cheaper one that doesn't come with the shaft.
3) Do I need to do the front and rear diffs? Did those who have done it buy two and mod both?
4) Can I use the Traxxas CVD driveshafts and centre shafts I already have? What about the output cups? Can I install my ones onto the output shafts of the LST2 diffs and then use my drive and centre shafts?
I really want to do this mod as I am sick of fixing diffs, and I have heard so many good things about this mod, but I am worried about doing it and don't want to buy things I don't need.
If I can just install the new diffs, attach my drive ups (slightly longer ones for extended arms to prevent popping out with RPM arm flex), connect up my CVD centre and drive shafts and away I go, that would be awesome!
Sorry for the super long post... Just wanna get everything sorted and bought and get this mod underway.
