    Can you buy them already mounted ? I hate mounting them myself (too lazy and don't know how to do it might be better to say) from what I've read on here they are a firm tire that doesn't balloon as much or is that only if you mount them yourself ?

    Unfortunately they aren't available premounted. I'm sure after they sell a lot of them they'll start having premounted options. And other wheels available with 17mm. It's not the tire that's firm. I pulled the cell out and they are as soft as the trenchers and mashers. It's the cell itself that makes the tire firm. You can probably call proline and ask if there's a way they can mount them for you. Personally I prefer to mount them myself.

    Ok so after waiting on replacement esc, rebuild diffs, installed new rx with new tx. Axles, front bumper I finally got my wheels mounted and tryed them out.
    Modified rustler axles to work with stock length axles.


    Here's new rx/tx

    New bumper it's wide


    Compared to old bumper

    So after running the new wheels and tires. There is slight ballooning without taping them. That's me doing speed runs up and down the street. If you pick truck up and hold it in air well then there's ballooning. I like them how they are without tape. Their not pizza cutters like trenchers or mashers are without tape. But it's more with the closed cells that came with these tires.

    What is the MIP part # for the longer CVD? Those would come in handy if I ever install longer a-arms.

    I didn't notice. I'll have to look more at it or try to listen for it while in a turn
    Pat number 11105 is for the protrac arms if you already have the x duties

    Thanks bro. Well I finally managed to strip the servo gears. Time for something powerful I think it had something to do with the new rx I got. It has the avc option and I turned it on. Was doing pretty good with it. But I think when in got on the 2 right side wheels it kicked the steering to the right to get it back on all 4 wheels but then I think. I did the same thing with my old rx and tx. And I didn't adjust my strc servo saver since if put it in. So either it had enough or something else went wrong. So I have 2 options. Either do what humayrayakongkinaon has to offer with metal gears inside a 2075 or get a waterproof high torque servo. Other that the truck ran good changed gearing to 19/50. Outside temps is around 57*. So my motor was 95* and esc was 88*. Hmmmm kinda weird if you ask me I can't see dropping 3 truths would change the temps over 40* maybe it will. And thanks to elsob I'm now running 40k in front diff and 100k in rear diff and what a difference it has

    Tore my truck apart to do maintenance and well some was harder then other areas. Rear outer bearing right side was gone

    So I fixed all the rear bearings even in the diff housing changed fluid put back together. KH mount bearing still running strong.
    Time for the front. And this is what I found pin broke for the out drive only one side


    And then I noticed the front wheels would get hung up when turning the wheels by hand so I found pinion bearings seized and opened the diff and what do you know I have broken spider gears

    Fixed them all up good as new for now lol. That would be the first for me to break inner gears and also the set pins for the axles.

    Wow. That's some mild carnage there. I don't know if those pins are the best solution. They are free on one side,not binding anything...

    These are the pins I use and style of pins everyone else uses in place of those small set pins that comes with the axles. Honestly I don't know what I did for this to happen. Not unless it was last weekend when I tested out the 19/54 and changed a few things that was binding to get my temps down. I did hit a parking block you find in parking lots I broke an A arm on that side right at the bulkhead.
    I was able to run a pack through and everything is smooooooooth as butter. I also balanced my tires last night man was they out of wack.

    Yep I have xo1 both front and rears that's what's weird. The outdrive gears was still good well almost. There was some chiped teeth on one side. But not missing teeth

    Nope. After putting at together I always check to see if there's binding. When I rebuild it last night I even put an extra shim in on the other outdrive just to see what it feels like. It was tight. Kinda hard to explain. ( Ok have you ever pushed your pinion gear inside your diff inward more and moved the ring gear by wheel. You can feel a difference on how it grabs )

    Did you put two teflon washers on each side of diff pinion output shaft? I know one side has one already. I did try putting on the other side but when put together it was tight and grinding.

    Yea that's what I did just to see what it felt like. But I did this last night after finding all this and rebuilding it. I only had one washer in at time of destruction. I noticed same as what you said so I removed the one washer that isn't suppose to be there and put it back together.
    And it was one Teflon washer on each side if that's what you mean by two of them. Or two on each side then no. Just one on each side

    I don't know how I have super thin washers that happen to be the right size lol but I never like the amount of play with ring to pinion gears.

    That's cool. I guess if there was no play at all you'll have a chance of binding the driveline which wouldn't be good.

    It's the washer that comes with the diff kit. There's only one washer and 2 rubber seals. But the other type of washers we was talking about are for the pinion gears of front and rear diffs

    Hey Er33, I see that you too have used the long grub screws for the x duty, I am thinking of not using the orginal screws (2 for each side); are those the erevo scews that you are using or any other if so what is the part number please.

    Thanks
    Live life to the fullest
