These are super cheap to buy and maintain, about $200 for the rtr, the most expensive stock non electric or body part is about $19. Not a lot of breakages on these guys either the brushed MT I broke the plastic diff output on the front gearbox and the screw came off the diff pinion gear and destroyed my diff crown gear on my truggy, my fault I had a bad tube of loctite when assembling the kit. Other than upgrading the brushed Valor to brushless specs I haven't really had to buy much in parts.Don't just Bash, Blast your wallet!
Oh yeah, you have to make sure that all the screws are tightened evenly otherwise the diff spins out of round. If it binds in one spot loosen the screw a little bit at a time until it no longer binds.@Slick2500 hey question for ya if you don’t mind, I started putting together my truggy kit today. I got everything put together for the front end. I tested rotation by rolling the axles in my fingers, and the input and crown gear would bind slightly in a certain spot. I pulled the diff apart, with those pesky Phillips screws, and the only thing I could see was that diff cover may not be seating flush to the cup causing the crown gear to be slightly crooked. With the cover off I rotated the axles and tried different things to see it the gear is not straight. Both diffs seems to have a ever so slight wobble in the gear. Did you have any problems with the the diffs? Sorry for the novel, but figured it’d be easier to give you a synopsis of what I’ve done, instead of going back and forth.
