AhΒ*I see, IΒ*thought that basically pulled out the HF diff houseing, and just put the cen gst diff houesing with gears in place...IΒ*didn't know you had to take it apart. Are there two parts in one diff?YES, PINION AND THE ACTUALLY DIFFΒ*Your saying crown and then pinon...aren't these both inside the one diff? Then IΒ*just put the out drives on the old hellfire houseing as well?Β*I'm guessing I'm thinking this is harder than it is :P. SEARCH BACK IN THIS THREAD. THERE IS A GOOD PHOTO OF A DIFF OPEN UP ETC. IT IS EASY TO DO.
Have you changed out the center diff or no need?Β*NO. YOU CAN CHANGE THE OIL IN THE CENTRE DIFF TO WHATEVER WEIGHT YOU WANT. BETWEEN 10 AND 20 IS A GOOD STARTING POINT.Also how do IΒ*install the clutch bell?Β*DoΒ*I have to take the engine off?YES.Β*And basically to get the thread lock off, IΒ*just throw the diffs they send me and put them in the oven @ 150 for like 5-10 minutes to loosen the thread lock?ONLY IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE, CHECK THE OIL INSIDE THE DIFF AND THE SCREWS ARE VERY TIGHT AND YOU CANT LOSSEN THEM. Also where could IΒ*pick up some shims? ANY LHS OR EBAY.
One more thing, looking at the back of the hellfire, and front, it seems it's not just 6 screws, but more so 10 or so. IΒ*have to take off the front and rear bumper\skid, then take out the 6 screws which will also drop the a-arms since two of them hold in the bushing that keep the a-arm up, and then the tiny little t-bone that goes around the front and back which is held in by 2 tiny screws...is this right? IT ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES TO UNDO THE SCREWS AND THE DIFF WILL PULL STRAIGHT OUT. ONCE YOU HAVE DONE IT ONCE ITS EASY.
And I see how to get out the clutch bell, I do have to take the engine out. I found a steel vented 12t clutch bell for the Revo, would this work? http://cgi.ebay.com/Traxxas-Revo-12t...ts_Accessories
