you did tell me this haha sadly its not what i was thin king was the problem the shfts just shear off, its not anything with the actual gears or housing just the amount of stress those shafts get put under when there locked, if they were never locked those diffs would be golden. thats how i broke my front shaft had just my front diff locked and punched it a tad to hard leaped over the top of the snow bank landed on my driceway and snap went the output shaft, haha not eve where the pin goes through either it just twisted off right behind there, where they machined it down a little.

lol that will be because of me and these tires im going out and piking up 4 diff rebuild kits so i have enough to last till i get my aluminum cups in and what not, but i have found everthing in there is identical to the new Emaxx diffs except that longer side output shaft, so i have a few rebuilds here except that shaft wich is 6$ at the local hobby shop, so im not too worried about these diffs but if it comes to it ill go down to smaller tires and put these on my Supermaxx since its bulletproof.

welll im waiting on rc4wd to get there demolisher beadlocks back in stock so i can mount these, 180$ for the tires and whopping 269$ for the rims. HOPEFULLY the summit can handle these monsters, im going to upgrade to an aluminum steering rack and 1 Monster torque servo with 444 OZ of torque from savox so thatll be another 160$ and this truck should be where i want it, might put a Gorillamaxx strobe slipper clutch from my supermaxx i have around so it will actually turn these bad boys without just completely frying the slipper.
