That's a good looking Truggy for sure!!

Could you flip the center diff so you could use normal pinions? Looks like there would be room to do that.

You'd have to cut a new slot in the chassis for clearance or raise the diff.

You can see in the second pic the cutout in the chassis for spur gear clearance isn't under the spur gear. That center diff is in backwards. That's also why the top plate looks the wrong way around.

lstmuggy- is there any special reason you flipped the diff? Only had long pinions on hand? Good looking truggy, by the way

Instead of cutting a slot you could also use of piece of CF under the CD. cutting a slot in the CF instead.

great looking truck

Edit:nevermind this was already said.

yes the top plate was put on wrong lol hurry to take pics, i have since flipped the diff around and just raised the diff about 1 mm,i didnt like using the long shank pinions.
the truggy runs great tons of steering just have to watch the wheel pins (they like to work themselves loose
