Hey all just looking for some direction here.... I'm tearing down my Tmaxx to rebuild the diffs and tranny and add some goodies...

whos done diffs on a TMAXX before??? what did you use??? as far as parts and grease? or lube?

I am getting some clicking in my rear diff under power so I figure its time. heres my list (still gathering parts)

new clutch(stock)
new clutchbell(stock)
MIP CVD's(all around if I can afford it.....which ones are more important to change??)
pull start(the EZ start is kewl but its acting up so time to either change it or eliminate it)
tranny is not really acting up shifts awesome(already has FOC)..should I touch it just because everything is apart?? or what??
also brakes are real sloppy on this truck is stock replacement ok? or should I upgrade??......I am into bashing with the occasional trip to the track for practice....Other than that I just plan on cleaning everything up.....giving the chassis a good polishing that kind of thing.....hmmm
hmmmm installing a 3.3 you know the nuttin fancy
Penny Racer with Air brakes(only one in Canada)
