    Your pic didnít do through. Check out this diagram and see if anything looks familiar. The screw pins are usually found in the suspension arms, c-blocks, etc.

    I also recommend a nice set of MIP hex drivers. Those you only buy once.

    Thatís a really nice way to honor your dadís memory. I have some of those old Kyosho shocks too- amazing. Iím really hoping they do a re-release on that optima mid.

    I found that I always needed threadlocker until I picked up a set of MIP hex drivers. I havenít used it since and have not had any grub screws back out.

    Iím no expert, but a common theme Iíve noticed from manufacturers is to fill to a level just above the pins.

    Second that. Also, no need to ďpackĒ anything with grease. A light coating is enough. Any excess is thrown off anyways.

    Are CVD's worth it?

    I agree with Role. I have the MIPís on one 2WD rustler, and the 4x4 shafts on another. The 4x4 shafts are waaaaay cheaper, and so far have held up really well with 3s use/abuse.

    Which diff are you getting? Iím thinking that because the idler and layshaft gears are steel, youíd want to avoid aluminum cogs in there. I could see it getting chewed up.

    Just curious- I heard the sport body either doesnít fit, or maybe just rubs on the fenders. How did yours work out with the stock sport body?

    It was same gearing and setup on two identical rustlers. I think the SW4 has more actual heat sink materials, maybe more of those MOFSETs too. Donít quote me on that [emoji57]

    I have that ESC paired with a 3800, and also a Sidewinder 4 paired with the 3800. Maybe itís just me, but the SCT seems to run a lot hotter and not quite as smooth as the SW4. Price-wise, I think...

    Iíve been running a 3800kv motor in a 2WD rustler for a while, and it seems pretty good to me. As far as tires, itís had stock, 2.2ís, and 2.8ís (with reduced pinion size so as not to overheat).
