    So... If I already have the upgraded axle shafts and then I add these diffs, what becomes the "break point" in the drive train? The hexes?

    I've been lucky with the stock diffs (knock on wood). ...

    SST issues!

    People do put brushless systems in these, but the stock diffs and axles really aren't up to the task.

    Yeah, and they have a tendency to melt if you run a lot of current through them. I have some Deans connectors sitting on my bench, but I've been too lazy to install them.

    With no power to any electronics, my first thought would be to check the battery to see if it has a charge. Always get the obvious out of the way first.

    Also, make sure the battery connector is...

    That's only natural. You strengthen one area of the drive line, it just moves the "breaking point" to the next weakest area. I just installed the aluminum axles, so I'm curious to see how the...

    I doubt I will go brushless with this, as I run it in my small city backyard. I can barely get to top speed on the stock motor.

    I'm running the stock motor/ESC and haven't had any issues with the diffs (except the 23 screws that have to be removed to access them). I do have the shims. Is it best to put them in regardless of...

    I use the upgraded shocks and run AE 30wt in them. Granted, I'm just bashing in my back yard, so I doubt I would really notice a difference if I used a different weight.

    I've read about people using Associated 1/18 ball diffs with shims in the SST. You can get them from Tower Hobbies. I have them, but after 10 battery packs, my diffs are holding up, so I have yet...

    I used to live on the Cape. The canal was almost in my backyard. Yeah, you can get some pretty good ocean gusts even on "nice" days.

    I've had an SST for about a month and it is a blast to bash around my small city yard. I read the weak points on the SST are the shocks, the axle shafts and the differentials. I replaced the...
