Hey guys, haven't been on in a while. Mostly been working on my 1:1 and when I did get time to run, I ran my summit cause my merv has been out of commission due to stripped diffs.
Jhsmith - I've heard the center diff helps with cornering, though I am uncertain if it will reduce rollovers (something I still suffer from), but I have read quite a bit that it does help keep all 4 wheels planted. For the spur I guess it really depends on what types of surfaces you plan on running on and what equipment you currently run. If it's the stock vxl and mainly pavement, a 50t would do just fine with the 23t pinion. The stock vxl setup runs into heat issues when running on grass (short grass is ok for short periods), sand, fine loose gravel, etc. I am still quite new to this myself and have been MIA for the past while so someone please correct me if I am wrong.
Anyways, recently I replaced the rear ring diff gear as I stripped mine after running the sv2/4600kv setup. While I was at it I ripped apart the truck and cleaned/oiled everything (shocks, axles, front bulkhead, etc). When putting everything back together and giving it a little test run, only my left side wheels would spin under no load, low speed conditions (ie held in my hand). The right side wheels would just barely spin at half throttle, i didnt dare go to full throttle. Have I pooched something when putting it back together?? It's quite frustrating as I've taken it apart twice now trying to figure out where I went wrong with the diffs. I'm thinking I just may need to shim my diffs but it could also be something else, anyone ever heard anything like this?
