    The kit is a blast to assemble. My right axle keeps popping out of differential cup due to over extended suspension. My fix was to tie wire the rear shocks to keep from over extending. Upgrades to consider are MIP ball differential kit and AmPro rear independent suspension also duratrax ball bearings DTXC1547 you will need 4.
