Same here. So much binding, I couldn't use an MIP diff. RB6 it was, and it works perfectly.

Assembling those shocks was a helluva job, huh?

Tower Hobbies recommends Tamiya PS-6. It matches pretty close, but not perfectly.

Yeah it was but it was worth it. I have the instruction sheet that came with them if anyone one needs info or part numbers.

Thank you. I read that PS-6 was an option. Some people like it while others didn't. I'll give it a shot. Thanks.

Have any of you found a way to mount hex or pin drive wheels front and/or back?

Any recommendations on battery capacity? "mAh"

Or maybe weight recommendations?

I can go 3300 or 5300 or 6000? Weight is the big penalty for more runtime. I just don't wanna buy a 3300 and wish for more run time.

Yeesssshh,,... no starting point for the slipper clutch in the manual?

Any recommendations?

Just now its all the way tight minus 1/3rd turn. I don't have a clue if this is even close.
