Craigl... If you wanted to machine a few sets of those aluminum collars I would be interested in buying some... Im too lazy to buy and Dremel out my own... One set was enuff...


So that's what all the fuss was about...

Hey... what tyres are you using there? The truck looks awesome!

the problem with dremmeling standard collars is very little material left behind so they are weak and break if you push the horse power, at this stage I wont making any more but who knows ( its not a quick job on a 40 year old lathe ).
The tires are team orion street sweepers, they came on 1/2 inch offset rims via Ebay.

I shaved down a set of aluminum collars after the 1st set of stockers broke... So far on 6s they've held up... Wonder if these gears would work in a UE ultralite case... Hmmmm...

Interesting thought- the tooth counts are the same -43/13- depending on which exact version you get, lst2 for example. Im also gonna say the bearings must be the same inside diameters at least -both diffs will accept the RC-M output shafts and they both have an 8mm bore input shaft-...

Im sure you can look up which size bearings they each take, but I do reckon that with a little shiming they may well fit perfectly. Only down side is that the UE cases are $60 each, but it still works out at half the price of full blown 6 spider models costing $260 for a pair...

I am 99% that they wont fit, the old 9.5 violator diffs are bigger? Hard for me to explain this without a pic, the diff cases on the losi would be shallower then the 9.5..

Just out of complete curiosity? How have the Muggy/LST diffs held up for you brushless guys?

Have you guys had any major issue's?

LST2 diff's - 05.11.2010, 05:27 AM

I'm not brushless, running a .32 Axial big block as picture a few posts back, the diff's have worked a treat, done some pretty hard bashing and even as a heavy weight truck that spends its fare share of time on the back wheels only, I have not managed to break one yet.
I highly recommend this mod for any maxx truck running big horses.

Craigl... If you have some dimensions or CAD(?) files to send to Vokus, he's askin for some machine work to practice with. I would seriously love 2 sets of the side spacers and 2 of the collar braces...
