i have had a volcano stx for 2 years, stripped a spur gear or 2, thats about it, i havent stripped one since i put the upgraded steel clutch bell in it, its been about a year or more since i upgraded it, i would highly reccomend it, i just picked up a volcano sc with the red/flame body, real sweet, i have the tsunami electric and the tsunami ultrawide with the same red/flame body, its like having a little gang, lol

yes, all there redcats come with steel diffs, even the electrics, thats why they can hold up to the brushless systems so well.

something pretty indestructable would be the 1/8, avalanche, monsoon or hurricane. you cant go wrong for any of these, the avalanche is one of the best handleing monster truck i have ever seen or used and i have pretty much owned or own them all, lol

Hi all, does anyone know the order in which to put washers and e-clip when reinstalling clutch bell. Also what size is e-clip (5/16?). E-clip broke and stuck bell to shoes so do not know what order they go in . This is for a redcat monster truck sv. Any help is appreciated .
