    The Castle BEC is programmable.

    I agree, that is a excellent idea protecting the bec and no heat build up

    Thanks guys, thought it was a lil ingenious myself. I didnt even think of the air cooling properties... was just thinking somewhere to mount and protection. But ya I bet it will help with cooling aswell.

    Thought I might as well since I replaced the stock servo guards.

    The TRX connector harness worked out perfect, Thanks Jamann!

    So, no one could help me out last time. So I`ll try agian...

    I still need to shim my diffs. I get that generally your placing shims between the bearing and gears. Trying to bring the pinion gear meshing as close as possable without binding. But im stuck on the testing technique to figure which of the 3 spots needs the shim?

    Can anyone point me to a shim guide that explains indepth figuring out where to test and place shims. Cant find video Anywhere on the net of shimming a 1/10 summit diff.

    Thanks in advance.

    NA - I am getting ready to upgrade to the Savox 1230SG servo. Need something to turn these Mudslingers. What did you end up doing about the Servo Saver. Did you go with the the Golden Horizon or replacements from Integy. I cant tell from your photos. Golden Horizon is out of stock at the moment. What would you suggest.

    I got my LEM diff cups in and had a little bit of time tonight so I got started. I Only managed to disassemble both diffs and assemble 1 cup. I hope to have it up for the weekend. Everything fit real nice and matched up just like it should. No I bar issues or binding. Will put it into a diff next. As you can see by the pics... It was in a lil mud last weekend and blew some gears and bearings

    I cannot wait for LEM`s axles too, they are ultra sexy.

    Man 100k! I've used 100k in the center diff in my MERV, but it seems a bit overkill for a front or rear diff. Why don't you just run locked all the time? Lol

    Stock in the summit diffs is 100K. There is still enough slip, I would have tried 125k or 150k if I had it.

    100k is stock for the 1/10 Summit front and rear diff... keep in mind that the tires on a MERV are half the size so they have half the leverage.

    EDIT:
    Darn! I got Ninja'd again!
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Plus, Mervs are geared a little more towards racing and you want more slip for better turning especially at high speeds.

    More pics of the formation of my diffs. First I had to clean, lube, grease then re-pack all the bearing while I had it apart.

    I chose to go with the stock screws, not that i saw anything wrong with the ones provided with the cups, but I have heard stainless screws are bad for breaking. I dont wanna have to drill a cup out so I stayed stock. The threads are perfect, no issues there.

    Had encountered a slight problem when fitting my new aluminum diff cupps, as Ive seen a few of people have.

    Some I-bars just would not fit in the cup all the way to the bottom. I used 7 different i-bars (5 new, 2 used) in combinations with the 4 cups and had varying success with them. Seemed 2 of the 7 would not fit in any of the cups( 1 was already used in the diff and the other was fresh out of the package), a few were 50/50. It showed me that the I-bars out of TRA5382X are not all the same right out of the package. Best thing to do is buy another TRA5382X and hope lol, at least there is 2 spider gears in it too, they seem to come in handy. But hopefully I wont be needing as many of those anymore

    Decided I have enough spare parts for my summit. Ive been holding myself back from buying a spare chassis because if I buy one... I would probably just build another truck LoL
