    the jury is still out on that one!
    you would still need aluminum diff cups and cases

    i tried the discontinued robinson racing ring &pinion and stripped them
    do you plan on running more than 4s?

    I de-tuned my motor a bit through Castle link and I've been on the same set of diffs for some time now, they still feel buttery smooth. Also I wouldn't use less than 100K weight silicone in them.

    I use 6s at my erevo. And a small spur-gear, ( that we use for high speed). I use original gear at my motor now after i burned my motor. I dont use any diff-grease. Should i?

    You should be using differential lube in the 50K weight range on the inner cup and high temp grease on the outside or you will cook it. How did you manage to cook the motor? What gears were you running?

    You should edit out the stars. The language filters here ar pretty non tolerant of words that you wouldnt even think would trigger it. I was suprised when I typed the other analogy of butt retentive and got starred out.

    No biggy, doesnt offend me, Im ex Navy...ever heard the term curse like a sailor? However this is a family oriented forum so they are heavy on the language filters. You could use an alternative word like crap, crud or dookie and we will all get the point just the same.

    Well the stock diffs really are junk but there isn't much in the way of aftermarket in this scale that can handle the 1800-2650kV brushless motors running in these trucks.

    I was doing good until I took it into the sand on Saturday and was jumping it at full speed. Did alright though, so far in the rear I only lost 1 spider and had a couple of chunks out of the ring so I replaced it. Front is still TBD when I tear into it.

    How did you manage that?
    We all know the diffs as stock are lacking a bit but there are after market parts to beef them up and they do need to be shimmed. Ive only trashed on diff and it was due to a bearing failure, the plastic inner diff cup had a meltdown but I caught it early and salvaged everything but the cup.

    Were you landing the jumps off power?

    I had no luck with stock diffs and ended up doing the Losi mod...I also only run 2/3s in my truck.

    I hear ya on the 6s I run mostly 4s and ocassionally 5s. Seems everyone that steadily blows diffs is running 6s. Im sticking with the stockers for now beefed up with aluminum and shimmed. They are holding out for me.
