i must say i have hot glued, jb welded, diffs in the past, but have really enjoyed these diffs lockers, they are so easy to work with and really fast , also the beuty and simplicity of the CRAWFORD PERFOMANCE ENGINEERING chassis the CLAW , this chassis is the best buy because it comes with everything to install to your axles

I can't really tell if the chassis is complete or not from the photos, but the lower 4-links should mount to the upper portion of the axle tube (with the metal gearcase supports) for optimal ground clearance. Good luck with the rest of the build!

the 75 have a lot of power, i thought with 13 tooth gears it would be to fast to crawl but the motors did help to bring down the speed a lot, i will put 8 tooth on it as soon as my adj mounts come in and will use a 8 cell stick to really test it

it has suspension through the tension bars in the middle of the chassis, it is very predictable to drive, you would have to try one to really appreciate it against the normal shock set up, i can definetly see the difference between my NN and THE CLAW
