I packed my front and rear diffs with 20million wt diff oil... Putty? I still unload the front or rear diffs when bound up.

Personally, I don't mind waiting. Amain has always "done right by me". Yes, HH also does right...but, between the two, I give more loyalty to Amain.

i received my Ryft kit today. looks like it shipped with the old axle housing design. one of the diffs didnít go together smoothly due to what looked like a plated over burr on the internal diff pins/axles. also one of the diffs seems REALLY tight with the pinion gear (only noticeable when i tighten on the diff cover) and almost binds. may need to shim it. iím only up to the D bag at this point.

How do you tell the old axles from the new ones?

Jay-Em mentioned the design is the same, the material is different...

Harley Designs did as well in a live stream the other day...

i had seen a video of someone showing the added material of a new design for the Ryft. If it is just the material, then maybe i had the revised part.

Here is the video detailing the differences:

For those curious about wheels, I was able to get these Gear Head wheels to work by modifying the hubs slightly. Boiled off the stock tires and added some CI foams (so much better).

Also came up with a different trailing arm brace design. Sent a few sets out to some peeps on the Facebook Ryft group so they can thrash them and see how they hold up...

While my Ryft Kit is on the FedEx truck ("out for delivery", right now), thought I'd share what arrived from Vitavon last night...some training links, steering knuckles, and front & rear axle...all machined from 7075 aluminum. And then, to top it off, I asked Arthur to anodize them this brilliant blue.

Lookie, lookie what the FedEx man (ok, FedEx woman) brought me.
Gotta admit, the box is MUCH bigger (22.5" x 13.25" x 7.5") than I thought it would be. The Capra Kit box was approx 1/4 the bulk, and 1/3 the weight (or less).

Granted, I still have some other projects needing to be worked on first...mostly repairs related to three other vehicles...but, once they're finished, I'll get started on the Ryft Kit.

My kit should be here this week. I have a mmx esc/ 1415 2400kv combo and a power HD mini servo for two speed arriving today. It should be a torque monster!! I cannot wait

Ok...got a few questions (mostly directed at those owning the RTR, but, for those who've already built the kit, you might also know the answers).

First, regarding the shocks, what is the extended & compressed lengths, front & rear? As some have noted in the stock shocks appear to be prone to leaking. In order to determine what the alternate options are, people will need to know what the stock shock lengths are.

Second, is the Losi LMT truly the "best" servo saver for the Ryft? I know it's not a 'clamping' style design...but, looking it over, I can't even see how/where it screws into the servo's spline. To be honest, I've been considering the MST NS High-Torque Servo Saver (MXS-820126) for the steering, and the XRAY Stiff Composite Servo Saver Set (XRA372502) for the 2-spd 'shift' servo.

Just came up with a third question. Does anyone know of available alternate (ex. splined steel) front & rear driveshaft options?

Looks like my kit also came with the original version axle housings. I'm going to run them and see if they break. Still trying to decide on a servo. I'm going to try out the running gear from my old Yeti trophy truck and see if it works acceptable.
