    Excellent write up and pics!
    This is how I do it as well. The hot glue is very important in my opinion, my diff's last a lot longer now.

    +1 on the outerwear or dusty covers. Snow will add up on the chassis and add a lot of weight. Plus the cover helps a lot with moisture on metal and electrical parts.

    I like the Trencher X over the stock Canyon tires, they seem to get better traction and "float" over the snow.

    I think a nail would be a little too soft, it may work with good throttle control. In a pinch I've used the non fluted part of a drill bit. I just cut off the length I needed. Drill bits are very...

    No problem Chrisg81983, were you able to make your own up? I've been running 6s brushless and haven't broken a single axle since making my own up. Stainless would be real nice, any pictures?

    I've been using 500k for months in my rear diff. I use thinner oil in the front. I did notice that after switching to the 500k I started busting the rear axles a little more often. I really like the...

    Yes, I left the threads (tapered pipe threads). Just drilled out the axle through the solid part just enough to thread in. Then I drilled a hole through the axle and threaded part of the cup/fitting...

    ErbeSummit, pictures coming. I work 12hr+ a day so it may take a day or two. I only have an ipad and ios7 is causing me a lot of grief. If you would like I could email pictures right away though.
