    Anyone?

    i usually run my mini summit with the tranny flipped but this being my only rc and i wanted to go faster i undid the tranny flip and with in the first 2s lipo i had my rear diff clicking again. i was just wondering if any one else has had this happen to them the one time they run their truck with the stock transmission gear position ?

    It could have happend your next run in the flipped position too.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    thats right but you can never tell. when it almost striped i was jumping and came down on the rear wheels with the gas on still. i did get it fixed last night to find out that today i need to add another shim to the front but it is cheaper to shim a diff than replace a diff.

    Is it bad bulkhead design? I've lost two rear diffs to dirt. The seems to shovel it in with the rear skid plate when the rear end slams down on the ground. I haven't had a single issue with the front diff. I wished I could justify spending $52 on aluminum bulkhead

    Would silicone applied between the two halves of the bulkheads and held together with an aftermarket aluminum skid plate help? Maybe a cheaper option to a aluminum bulkhead?
