Who are you emailing? I think Chris is out of town, Are you emailing the email address in the back of your manual? I have had NO issues with a super fast reply...

hay guys a while since my last post. was unsuccesful with putting concepts from this onto my comp robot . illegal. having problems with the diffs staying locked. anybody know of a part that could keep the lock screwed in place? building the kit was great until the first page where they wanted me to get bits my hardware stores didnt even carry. h7 hex... to small fragile. and atttempting to drive those screws in was terrible... was missing 3 screws and some threads were interlocked and ground. didnt like how everythign was unthreaded. after all its an amazing crawler. 9.8 out of 10 out of the box very content with my purchase. give advice on locking diffs.

Post some pics if you can. With it happening to both all I can think of is installation error as I have not had or heard of anyone else having that problem. Could certainly be wrong though.

Venom Aluminum Chub: AX10 Scorpion - 4022

just wondering if this hop up venom makes for the ax10 with fit my creeper, the pins were sliding i got it fixed for the most part, but one last pin slid out on the front axle steering hub and snapped the plastic c-hub, this would be a great replacement part,

Nope just letting you know it was coming real soon and fixes the trans hang up issue. Will be standard issue and as a spare part.
Also we have strengthened the lower links a bit and labeled them in the mold so they are easier to identify. There are other small improvements to the kit as well so its easier to build.
