Since we sell them, we prefer you just use adapters...

Thanks Brett, i took your advice and mounted the spacers with a longer bolt and it works, here is some video, i still need to work on the links to get full turning radius but for me it is a great improvement.

What? can hear you over the screaming motors, actually the camera makes it sound much louder then it really is, i cut my foams on star shaped pattern with 12 points if i recall correctly, i'am thinking on buying some kreepy foams though.

I only ask cause I use the same wheels on my supers and it looked liked you have them uncut.

But thanx for the info.

Okey guys need a little help here, i had to take apart my front diff again, i had this failure twice in a less than 2 months, i know they are only plastic gears, but before i switch to either delrin or aluminum gears i want to get to the bottom of this. I have a theory, all this started happening since i switched to 6 tooth pinions, i think the added torque has increased the pressure point in the same place, in a bind under throttle, it breaks where the planetary gears should go, i guess the small gears in their place would add to structural integrity, what do you guys think?

Okey to further illustrate my theory, i got some lockers i had laying around from M&L ART, i have a couple sets of these laying around for a while now, and apparently they have adressed this problem, from the pics you can tell the bigger locker provides support for the inside which the smaller locker doesn't, and this is exactly where the gear breaks.

Ours do that as well, with just a bit of a gap to allow for any differences in the gear itself. Best of all, they're on sale through the end of the month!

I have decided to change the body on my CLAW, so i got a proline body for my rig, i still haven't cut it for crawling duties, i just wanted to get some feedback on it.

I may have missed it, but have you had any issues with suspension tweaking out and wanting to fold in on itself on undercuts or tight situations. I keep having this problem with mine.
