fortunately the only real carnage is a gear split in 2. not that dramatic. of course it set me back a week and god only knows if i will ever get this front end back together!!!!!!!!!!!!! why i took the whole thing apart i will never know.


No big deal no you will know who to get apart there is a sequence to pulling it apart and putting it back together......... Why did you get the parts from Redcat? Did you get it from a dealer or Ebay.......for parts I use Kurt at www.urchobby.com he ships to me in about 2-3 days and his prices are cheap and shipping is sometimes free............

Can you guys give me the measurements on the shocks for the EarthQuake?

Thinking of trying them on a Caldera.

there is no harm in adding alittle grease to the diff housing. will help it run smoother and cooler.
also, check the threads on shimming the diff. do that if you feel it needs it.
