    Teton differentials keep stripping

    I’ve got a Latrax Teton, upgraded to brushless and worked great for quite awhile after the upgrade, but eventually stripped out one of the 2 stock differentials, which are plastic. I replaced both with OEM 7579X the metal replacement, which as far as I can tell is the only replacement part...

    Traxxas maxx 4s center diff

    Hi, I have a 4s traxxas max that I have just blown the center differential on. I'm wandering, has anyone tried to "lock" the diff with somthing like JB weld? 😂 if so what was the outcome? Is it a good way to say good bye to the rest of the vehicle? I've found another stock center diff for around...

    Traxxas X maxx Problem

    I have reassembled the truck a handful of times trying to find the problem. The truck makes loud clicking noises and does not always move forward even though the motor spins and the pinion gear is on tight.. Thought maybe before I take it in to a shop I could try asking on this Forum for help...

    Loud clicking on stop losi lasernut

    So I just installed teckno driveshafts in the rear dif. Since then. When I drive and then stop there is a loud click. What might cause this? I assume something locking in place? Also I think I have grinding in the center dif. Might be worn down like many lasernuts. Any help on the loud click on...

    Is it My Ball Diff?

    Trying to diagnose if my ball diff is barking at me, or if its something else. When jumping my RC10B6.2d I hear a quick little "chirp" when hitting a jump or landing from a jump (quick torque changes), however it does not make any noises when accelerating on level ground or when I do the "pin...

    Please can I have some advice on a cracked diff case?

    I drove my wltoys 144001 off a skate ramp at my local skate park and the shock tower hit the railing at the back of the ramp and cracked the diff casing. Is there a specific glue I could use or do I have to replace the whole diff case?(it is the front differential). Thanks in advance!

    Slash 2wd diff

    I have had the slash 2wd for 6 years and have never done anything with the diff? Should I do something with it? It is very loose. Should I put a silicone ear plug in? What should I do with the diff? Or do I not need to do anything?

    Kyosho mp9e Evo speedrun

    Hi, i'm using my mp9e Evo to build a speed runner. Currently i'm only getting to 120km/h(mamba monster on 6s), because I can't put bigger gears as the motor mount can't be moved further from the center diff. What are the options to solve this? A smaller gear on the diff is also not possible...

    TC4 rear differential issue

    Hi everyone, I'm returning to RC after many many years. I won't say how many, lol! A few years ago I built a TC4 FT kit. This is my first touring car, back in the day I had a Team Losi JRX (I think that was the name, I still have it actually). The build went smooth, I put in a brushless...

    Hyper 7 TQ differential fluid amount

    Hey guys new here, just got a hyper 7 earlier this week and I'm looking into the silicone oil for the diff's. But here's my problem, how much fluid goes in the diff's? Is the losi 8ight 5/7/2 kit enough to do it? Or do I need to get larger tubes/ bottles? I've searched all over with no luck. I'm...

BUT...whenever I spin one wheel the opposite wheel doesn't really spin at the same rate, if at all, sometimes it acts confused and doesn't know what to do at...
