    Did you get the hot racing axle stubs only, or the full complete axle sets? I've been considering the steel axle stubs since they should be a lot stronger than the aluminum stock parts. Not sure the rest of the CVD is bad, just the aluminum bit at the end.

    Painter > Seems like calling traxxas direct is the step for the current answer on that, as far as chop shopping it will be hit and miss -- here's a new parts itemization for reference : https://traxxas.com/sites/default/fi...86-4_parts.pdf

    Took apart Torque Biasing Center Drive and found something that looked like chewing gum in it. Have read that they pour in 2,000,000k oil in and that's true.
    I'll change to a little thinner, what do you use?
    Just drive in the sandpit.

    Heavier the better I think. Kev Talbot on YouTube puts silicone ear plugs in his to really stiffen it up.

    Ridden three times today. Think it goes as before.
    If you fill in 2000,000 oil, you lock the diff and get no effect on it.

    From the parts list, Traxxas part # 5040 is the oil in the center drive.

    Ok, it's time to drive again, have broken two upper rear a-arm at the last but jumped well, so nothing strange.
    I thought to sell my Proline tire but drove with the v1 tire yesterday and now there's not much left of them so proline went on again.
    I think it's a bit too heavy, but you'll probably live whit if you want to drive 8s / leopard 1340kv / max5 / 29/54.
    The other one I drive with 8s / org 1275kv traxxas engine / max6 / 46/22 and I have Traxxas 8's tires on. ,which seem to hold for this.
    In other words, the speed is much higher on the leopard engine / Max5
    Will try if it's with plastic spuer at the fast max5 because I want to save a little on the pinon and then it's quieter with it.
    Returns tomorrow how it went.

    Now I have ordered new Traxxas 8S tires for my old 6S X-Maxx.
    Seems that the Proline tire is too heavy for my driving.
    Takes a lot on the batteries and much more heat.
    I keep the proline tires for spare parts.
    A little rescue attempt on the 6S tires.

    Want to put in a Leopard 5892 1340kv engine in my new 8S X-Maxx.
    Where can I buy a motor mount?
    Kershaw Designe has closed down at the moment and Fastlane Hobbies do not send to Sweden.
    Someone who has a motor mount for sale?

    Opened the center diff and found this.
    What can it be and where does it come from?
    Stuck in gears so that everything was binding.

    Got hold of a used KD engine mount / Leopard 1340kv motor and a max 5 ECS in Sweden, so now go the Traxxas engine and max6 out of the car

    Now I get annoyed, the black batter came back again.
    What can it be? No visible wear on the plastic, new bearings and no visible leakage on Crushdriv. Please come up with suggestions on what it may come from.
    Maybe it got grease from the rear diff?

    This is just a guess but it could just be dirt that's getting in. It would turn black as it gets chewed up through the gears.

    @painter - hey bro, did you ever get the motor you wanted and find a mount?

    If you need help getting parts shipped to Sweden, I'd be Happy to help, and no, I don't need or expect anything in return as long as you cover shipping����

    Think you're right in this, drove on a gravel with not as fine sand as it was in the sandpit where I usually drive and not a trace of dirt on the diff.

    Tried with 100,000 oil in the centerdiff but got too much drive on the front wheels.
    Will try with 500,000 oil tomorrow.
    Also got in my new Leopard engine / Max5 esc and went out on a small test trip.
    Now both cars have almost the same setup.

    Two charges today on the gravel with 500,000 oil in, worked very well.
    Will put the punch on 3 instead of 2 as it was when I bought it and see what happens.
    Extremely good grip after some rain tonight, a drive shaft went off, which was the first for me so no problems.
    Think there will be new drive cups because they have too much play, may be the reason why the axle went.
    Mayby i buy new 7751X Rebuild Kit, the axel may remain a bit too stingy to change now.
    Have a nice day.

    Then I've got some new stuff.
    New fans and new servo.
    Was the same as the last maxx.
    All mounted and ready for test run.

    does this servo drop in as a direct replacement without any modifications?
