    Redcat Racing is ontop of it !

    I read alot of post in here about how the 8E's were having diff problems and needed to be shimmed. I just got my EQ 8E and locked the center diff today. I also looked at both the front and rear diffs and both pinions were shimmed from the factory. Both the front and rear ring gears were tight, with no slop at all. Nice to know Redcat looks in here and reads what we are saying is wrong with their stuff and accualy fixxing it ! Kutos to Redcat Racing.

    Good to know! Where did you buy yours from? I'm getting ready to buy oneand would like to get one with the diffs already shimmed. Let us know. If it's from URCHobby does anyone have a coupon code for some extra savings? Thanks!

    RE: Redcat Racing is ontop of it !

    Now they need to make a aluminum center diff cover on the 8E's, that plastic crap sucks, they break super easy, also they need to install bearings on the bellcranks on the 8e's, the amount of slop in them in unacceptable by any standards, the new-bright truck I had when I was 10 had less slop.  And they need to  make it so that the spur gear isn't  exposed to dirt and crap. Ooh and also aluminum Bellcranks on the 8E's, those are garbage also

    RE: Redcat Racing is ontop of it !

    I got mine off eBay for $289.99 with free shipping and a free wheelie bar, I had to wait a couple weeks as they were out of stock there for awhile. I only ran mine for a few minutes, hit a curb at speed and broke a axle. Ok tho, I had got the 12mm to 17 mm kit and am switching to 17mm now. WoW is this thing fast right out of the box ! I have lots of plans for mine. FOFF is in my future.

    If that is the case, then upon normal inspection, it can be shimmed.

    My Earthqakes diffs lasted 2 batteries, then shredded, it wasn't from use, from the factory you could slide them back and forth like 1/8 of a inch

    A buddy of mine is a dealer of redcat, that $289.99 is not too far off of wholesale prices and is an excellent deal.
