    OK swapping out the front and rear diffs with the talion 13 straight from the kraton 10 spiral. Once I get my new motor to test my esc if it is good will report back on the results.

    Blew out my rear tire and bent my front shock tower..so now I suddently have trenchers Xs and a carbon fibre tower too.. Shock tower looks ultra beefy. Bent the tower hitting a thick wooden fence in a skatepark. Fence = broke straight off, Kraton = minor face lift. Same impact with my old revo would have put it in rehab for a month

    I have a friend that makes them, I also know that someone in the UK is making them and selling on eBay. If you are interested in I can see if he has any.

    Getting talion or durango axles and hubs next to shorten wheel base and improve turning is on the list.
