I got to this point and the diff does not spin as smoothly as I think it should. Almost like it’s binding up every few turns or so. Any suggestions?
Maybe I got lucky, but mine were pretty smooth from the start. I would just make sure that the outdrive is tight and not loose so there is no slop between it and the diff case/bearing.

Also as you have been advised after a few runs it should free up, it may just need to be broken in.

My other RC carnage from the other day. I thought I had just broken a wing mount and needed to clean out some bearings, but as it turned out I had actually broken both parts of my rear diff case and the mounts! No worries though since my eb410 parts box was full of everything I needed!

Also, a little feed back on the Trinity aluminum rear hubs; make sure to install grub screws in all of the outer rear camber holes that are not being used. Especially if you run on a dusty track. I found that because the holes carry all the way through into the inside of the hub where the bearing are installed they will allow dirt and or water (if running on wet conditions) directly into the inside of the bearings rather quickly. This all lead to all four bearings to pretty much seize up on me way premature.

(I didn't have 6 grub screws of the right size at the time so I had to use a button head screw for now)

So lesson learned and ready to get back out there!

Your ProTek RC servo holding up? I have one that I took out of my Yeti. Thought I might possibly reuse it in the ET410.

Actually yes, I have liked the 130t for a while, I have one in my SCT410.3 as well and it has held up in that rig for a full season without a problem so far.

So I decides to do an electronics swap. I moved my HW Xerun XR8 SCT esc into my ET so I can use my orion R10 esc one of my EB410s to be able to handle a lower turn motor (Currently running the tekni RS gen2 in the EB410).

The Orion esc was doing just fine with the 4pole motor I was running but after seeing some people running the bigger esc's I decided that was the route to go to save money, because the real motivator was to actually be able to run a lower turn motor on my buggy.

The HW esc came from my SCT410.3 (that my 12 year old runs mostly) and since I had a spare monster X ESC I decided he wouldn't know the difference if I swapped that out, he he.

After a bunch of brainstorming on wire layout this is what I came up with in the end. I did fabricate a RX and switch plate out of the esc mount plate that comes with the HW esc. Never new why they included it with the motor until now, lol!
