Tlt are the axles for the smaller class crawlers and clod is for the super class crawlers...the larger wheel base crawlers...

For those who are thinking about a TLT here's an idea of what is in store.
Click the Pic and just go back through the pictures:


The last pic is of the stock tranny locked.
In case your wondering.

Where do you get the 3/16" roll pin to make the longer driveshafts? Are these an rc part for another car or something you can pick up at a hardware store?

Nevermind... I went to the hardware store today and got them. I really like inexpensive options such as this. Cost an entire 58 cents!!

So here is a view of what I did to lock my gears. And I beleive this is how it is supposed to be done. If I'm wrong please let me know and I'll make whatever changes need to be done.
Thanks and I hope this helps some.
**Note to moderators- You may want to host the pics if you can get them so they won't have dead links.
As I am a little confuse, could help me to confirm this? take out the teeth of the gear as you highlighted? or take out the gear completely? Sorry I am very green in crawler... .still trying to learn.

YA I found out the hard way the buying the axles is not the way to go, but I found out after they were already here(all but 2 parts.) Next one will be a whole kit..

It means add the JB weld to the gears where the arrows point, and don't get it anywhere else.

But, you can basically just stuff the JB in between the spider gears, as long as the two outer halves will close, and the hole in the center will still let the axle shafts slide in and seat, you are fine.

dont know if this has been covered but i found it on another site for locking the diffs. will this work...

You can lock the axle diffs in one of two ways. First way is to simply use jb weld on the diff axle gears and have them basically glued together. Make sure the gears fit into the diff housing and everything goes back together cleanly and right.

The 2nd way is easier and reversible. You simply take one of the 3 spider gears off the 3 pointed holder and place the gear you just removed in between the other two gears that are still on the holder. Put the diff back together and there you go locked diff! If you should ever feel the need to unlock it you will just have to put the gear back into it's correct place.

thanks in advance and sorry if its been covered already...

Yeah, it's been covered. BUT, it's bettter to use a 4th spider gear to do it this way. If you only use three and leave one of the legs of the "Y" unsupported it can, and has broken due to the torque on it and not having the gear to keep it supported.

Have fun!!

i used the 4 gears in each diff and it worked great. i think 6 gears in each diff is a lotta over kill and probably hard to get put together but hey i hope it works out well for you...

i loaded em up w/ 6 dif gears - not 2 hard to get together
they are heavier now thats for sure - i wanted to bulletproof them as much as i could.
