    Speed Guide: Rear Differential Housing Removal

    First off:
    This is the fastest I have found.... if you have a faster way please post about it!



    Remove fastener tagged in red.


    Remove fastener tagged in red.


    Remove fasteners tagged in red.


    Remove fasteners tagged in red.


    Remove fasteners tagged in red.
    Loosen fasteners tagged in blue.
    *** DO NOT FORGET TO REMOVE THE LOCKER LINKAGE BOLT ***


    I loosened them this far.


    Rear bulkhead can now be wiggled out of place.


    Remove fastener tagged in red.
    Repeat for the other side.


    Remove rear body mount/bumper.
    Pull pin on passenger (USA) side.


    Rotate drive shaft until the differential output shaft lines up with the groove in the bulkhead.
    Once it lines up, start wiggling and gently prying it until it frees from the bulkhead.


    At this point the differential housing will be free of the bulkhead.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    +1 great step by step.

    I'm old school; until my I got my Summit I assembled all of my RC's so I knew how they came apart. This will be helpful once I tear into the diffs!

    Thanks

    Great write up Jimmy!
    Noir what does a M60 machine gun(which I see the army has a nomenclature of M249) got to do with a summits bulkhead, not to mention bulkheads are found on ships that the Navy has. Being in the USMC ground forces we did not have bulkheads, unless you are referring to those bulkheads the DI talked about in boot camp LOL

    Noir was using the video as reference... so we could tear into our Summits side by side to see who is quickest.

    On another note...
    Remember that email a while back when you asked what those slots were for, Ed? I figured it out!

    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    The video is a simple reference of how a side by side race based on disassembling a product on a YouTube video would look like.

    That is why I preferences it with " I would like to see a YouTube video"

    Bulkheads refer the plastic partitions attached to the underside of the summit which houses the differentials. Hence " differential/ bulkhead dissassembly"

    ED

    Lets take it down a few notches and not take life so literally. This is supposed to be a FUN and exciting DISCUSSION. Not a personal debate.

    I always knew what the slots where for, just could never get both sides to line up at the same time or even come close LOL

    Funny how my memory contorted that one...

    I stuck an Allen driver in one and then spun the drive shaft by and until they were parallel. Once they were, turning the shaft without either side hindered kept them in sync with one another yet rotated them to fit into the slots.

    Never a personal debate with me, just did not understand or missed the meaning of the video. Also sometime peoples life experiences will make them react differently to outside stimulus differently. Example- A simple bullwhip cracking is probably nothing to most, that sound to me means bullets are whizzing past my head.
    Sorry if it made me seem to be over reacting, but remember I am a combat wounded Marine.
    Again sorry for any and all misunderstandings.

    Thanks again for your service, Ed.
    Days like today, our Independence Day, make me even more thankful of the continuing sacrifices and skill of our armed forces.

    Hey Jimmie,

    Just a heads up, on the fourth pic in the first post it looks like negative pole on the TRX connector is not snapped in all the way. You may want to check it.
    To SUMMIT up, its my coolest RC.

    Ok, sorry, couldn't help it...

    This is the fastest I have found.... if you have a faster way please post about it!
    I'm pretty sure a curb would remove it quicker...

    Nice write up Jimmie! I'm not sure how I missed this thread when it was posted!

    thanks for the information on how to remove the rear diff.

    does any have a quick how to on how to remove the front diff? I had something go out in the front and I lost drive to the front wheels. I am having a hard time trying to figure out the best way to get inside my front diff.

    any help would be appreciated.

    The front and rear are almost perfect mirror images of each other... it is going to be about the same.
