    LOSI DIFF MOD, How many people have done this? Any issues?

    Just curious, glad to have finally gotten this done. Curious how many of us have done this, and have you had any issues with it? Are you on 6s? What issues have you had?

    I did it over the winter time and I only run 6s. I bought them as take offs from a new lst and used the Kershaw designs dogbone kit. I didn't have any issues until I started running bigger tires (badlands > trencher 40s). The issue I had is that the rear bulkhead wasn't holding the rear diff in place and it would pull up and lose the dogbone.

    Under acceleration the front diff input will pull down (ok) and the rear diff input will pull up (not ok).

    I havent read about other people having this problem so maybe it's the way I installed it. Anyway I filled the rear bulkhead with jb weld and that seems to be holding so far.

    I would definitely take the time to shim the diffs and be thoughtful about your diff oil weights before the install.

    I heard people hotglue the diffs in place to solve that issue, have you heard about that?

    I tried hot glue, hot glue with home made nylon diff blocks, zip ties, etc. None of it held up for even one battery pack. I'm 100% sure that I could break my current setup if I locked up the slipper.

    6s on that 2200kv is no joke. I don't think a bullet proof setup exists.

    That was fine for me too until I put the trenchers on.

    I did the mod over a year ago, and run almost exclusively 6S with no issues to the diff. I have had to repair and modify axels (I have summit axels and have lost a few pins) and just lost the pin to my center driveline, but those are easy fixes.
