    Maxx_Adam, what hubs did you use? And just to confirm, the LST dogbones are the same length as the Traxxas CVDs? I've got the FLM hybrid bulks and RPM True-Tracks and carriers. Trying to figure out...

    Yep, that's right. I didn't have to take off much, and I decided to take it off the towers because they are stronger aluminum. It wasn't a big deal, but it would have been nice if they bolted right...

    Yes, they fit. I have Knuckleheads on my Hybrid Bulks now, although I had to do a small amount of dremeling on the towers to get them to line up properly. I don't recall having to buy anything else....

    I bought the Unlimited Engineering 5mm drive cups. But since the shafts are so short, I had to grind the drive cups down a bit so that the set screws would make good contact. The whole thing was a...

    Those spacers are intended to increase the size of the shaft so that the cup will fit, but I didn't have much luck with them. I destroyed them pretty quickly, and just ended up buying new drive cups...

    Rock-rod, will you let me know how much those Vorza pinions stick out when you get them? I'm still trying to figure out how long they are.

    Do those Vorza diffs have longer pinion gears? The ones that came with my FLM Hybrid Bulks are really too short for the UE drive cups. I regularly lose front wheel drive because the driveshaft comes...

    I personally think that those connectors are a weak point on Castle ESCs. A buddy had one pop out, and neither I nor a local hobby shop could get it soldered back in properly. After a single run, it...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure. I didn't get a chance to take pictures of mine tonight, and I still have to figure out how to post pics on this site. Let me see if I can post some for you tomorrow.

    Yeah, let me see if I can take some pics after work today. It may not be obvious, but those cups are only held onto the CVDs by the rubber boots.

    I'm using the FLM hybrid bulks with the stock FLM (Castor) diffs and the Traxxas CVDs. I just popped the cups off the CVDs, and the CVDs fit right into the cups on the diffs. The blue boots then...

    FYI: You can't replace just one diff with a hybrid diff because the stock and FLM diff have different gear ratios.

    If you have the steel CVDs (axles to the wheels), then I'm pretty sure that you can just pop the drive cup off the end that connects to the diff. That will leave you with a ball-end with a pin...

    Just to be clear, are you asking about the axles or the center driveshafts? In both cases, I am able to run the steel CVDs with my FLM hybrid bulks. For the axles, I had to disassemble the diffs, and...

    Yeah, turns out that I had some parts missing. FLM was kind enough to replace them, but I found that the aluminum sleeves don't hold up all that well anyway. I ended up getting some 5mm UE drive cups...

    Very nice guide! Does removing and replacing the bearing covers damage them in any way? Seems like it would wear out the edges.

    Yeah, I don't think I had to shim my pinion either. You definitely don't want it to be notchy. Also, fill the diff all the way up. Let it leak out as you screw the ring gear on to make sure it's...
