Default What to do till the conversion arrives

allright i just got my Wheely King 4x4 AAR and the crawler conversion i ordered from my LHS wont be shipped to them for 2 weeks (or so they say) so im gonna assume im gonna be waiting for another month. So i picked up some 50,000 weight silicone diff lock to hopefully lock the axle and i have some spare lower links from my AX10 and was wondering what i need to do to install them to add some extra length for crawling, i noticed that the upper links need to be lengthened to add the lower ones but the steering setup pretty much screws me if i want to do that, any ideas? Ive got a 16t pinion and a 96t spur the original 27t motor hpi receiver and radio and an intellispeed esc (for now until i get a crawler esc), just dont wanna spend anymore money till i get the conversion.

i have wk axles and the diffs dont hold fulid, it just runs out over time. jb weld works very well. if you want to be able to change them back to open diffs then your going to need a locker.

well your right they dont hold the oil i took them apart and discovered that they have holes where the axles go into them, i put some in anyway to se what would happen, it stiffened them up for a bit but after about an hour of abuse im assuming my axles are full of oil now because it started slipping like there was no oil in it again. guess ill have to wait for my conversion kit and just use my crappy ol AX10 comp rig till then. lol.

Just get the lockers, I Jb welded mine, when it broke it was a bit of a wait for the new diff carrier to come in to do it properly. Spend the 15 bucks.

yah the kit comes with them thats why im S.O.L till it gets here, guess i'll have to just change the spur and pinion and lower the battery or flip it to the front and make it a speed king till then. ive managed to make the back end 1/2 an inch longer tho with some spare parts out of shere boredom.
