True. You can buy two sets of the axials for the price of these. Looks like they've got them for the SCX axels as well.

I wonder if you can get replacement pins for them. I bet that's the point that will take the most abuse. The ball and cup shouldn't degrade that much as long as you keep them lubed up.

I think I'm going to get an ALICE pack with frame to carry the rigs.

Ha, welcome to my world. I have the attention span of a gnat so I always have at least 2 projects started, right now I have 4. Plus the rebuild of the Wraith axles (slop in the bearings) and rebuild of the Mog front end (broken axle brace.).

(EDIT) and I never seem to drive mine so, I am not sure with I am doing.

just focus on one at a time!

or you could do it assembly line style where you build all the axles, all the shocks, trannies, etc.

i got my fast eddie bearings, gonna start tearing down timmy and the wraith, which reminds me i really need to get some of those dlux no slop chub washer things. the slop from the chubs along with the slop from the stubaxles creates about 1/8" or so overall slop at the wheel, and it drives me crazy.

That is the problem I am having on the front end. Thought it was all bears. I will have to see what Eric is making.

Did you use the Fast eddy code I posted in the private area?

But yeah, I was going to slap on the Fast Eddy bearings for the Slash... ordered a new Robinson output gear as Ill use an AX10 tranny as opposed to Wraith tranny in the Class 3. Also ordered some RC4WD Hardcore Scale Trailing Arms... so I had them before they disappeared; may just try doing a more 'scale', or scaleish, Slash with a solid rear axle rather than IRS.

Do you guys understand the advantages and disadvantages of a center differential vs. a slipper in a SCT? Seems like the racers use the center dif while the bashers tend to stay with the slipper. I understand what it does but I'm not sure I understand why one is better than the other.
