Really enjoying this new to me grass bmx track. Been quite a long time since I ran a nitro for very long. Last weekend, I didn't make it through a tank before blowing my rear diff out. Considering I haven't had the diffs out of this thing in 5 years... it was about due.

New diff installed, P3 rods on the outer holes on the front and the rear with P2 rockers. Trying the p3 rods on both ends as I bought this truck used, it came with P3's on the front. With them mounted in the furthest out hole on the RPM arms, the chassis still bottoms out before the shocks, but it keeps the pushrod's upper pivot balls at less of an angle, so in theory, less wear.

Seemed to do ok:

Ran through 500cc's of fuel and didn't break anything. Was a fun day!

Also ran my stampede 4x4 a bit:

Now that's a great bash spot!
Tempted to take my savage there... pretty sure it won't come home in one piece though. After seeing that comment about HPI Racing having issues again, I'm hesitant to run my savageX or Flux. lol!

The revo did a good job there though.
