I thought eminent was using the HPI dogbones, but he may have changed the axles as well. Id check with him though

eminent are the cvd's a straight drop in or did you have to mod anything.
Also, my truck doesnt seem to be shifting and I cant find the settings in the manual or online. Does anyone know how many turns out the screw should be? Thanks

lynx, you mean these? [link=http://www.miponline.com/MIP/Hop-Ups/Pages/HPI_Hop-Ups.html#0]clutch[/link]

also, I have a little, problem, I was leaning out the HSN then I revved the engine for 2 seconds, to clear it out of the old setting, and saw that the HSN turned by itself clockwise while I was at WOT for the 2 secs. Is this normal, or do I have a serious problem, I ran the truck afterward with no problems and plenty of smoke.

Yes there are mods lots and lots of mods lol.
Here is the deal. You need mt2 18ss A arms, Cvd's, rear axle carriers and the entire inner diff from the mt2 18ss You cant buy the entire diff sad to say you have to buy them piece by piece. NOTE- the redcat pinnion does not work with the hpi gears. You just put the hpi diff into the redcat housing it fits great. You will also need the turnbuckles from the mt2. Unless your willing to do some real mods and cut down the mt2 cvd's and weld on the ball from the redcat dog bone lol its only about a 15 minut job if you have everything you need. I think thats it man. If I think of anything els ill let you know. You may want to put the mt2 18ss dog bone and cups on there too the one that goes between the tranny and the diff. They fit great.

I've never seen that. The needles should be snug enough with the washers that they cant turn on their own. If they are you should check those washers out. Is there gas leaking out from the needle at all?

well, ran it again, and the needle didn't move, I'll the o-rings on and see if I can find new ones, just in case, and no, there isn't any fuel leaking anywhere, this thing is sealed.

If the o-rings are good and no fuel is leaking out then you have me stumped.. It shouldnt have been able to turn on its own. But as long as its working you should be good.

yeah, I tend to get cars like this, with rare symptoms that no one can explain, like my freak xmod board (EP) that could hold 9 volts and never once exploded, lol

My brother in law runs 9 volts on all his x-mods they really rip.

The chasssis turned out great its just a little bit bent where the engine bolts on but I think it will be ok because it straightens out as soon an I tighten the engine. I took some pics of it.

KeithjV you might be able to just put the hpi mt2 diff cups in the redcat gears you know the ones that go through your bevel gears. That would save you loads of cash man.
