Are the Diffs locked or open?

The diffs are locked. There's still some confusion related to the differences in lockers between the Sport model and the Pro. The manual shows the Sport ring gear as the "18009", which is the same part number that people buy as a locker upgrade for the Everest 10 plastic locker/ring gear assembly, yet the parts list still shows the plastic housing that would hold the plastic/metal locker inside. What the Sport actually comes with is still a bit of a mystery, but as soon as mine gets here I plan to open it up to find out.

The Pro comes with "180009", which appears to be a 1 piece ring gear & locker.

From the pics I can find of the axle case and diffs, it's probably the same E10 internals. The 180009 is the aluminum upgrade for the E10. They just put straight tubes (and probably solid driveshafts) on the rear, used different upper pumpkin braces, and adjusted/removed certain mount points.

It looks interesting, but not $300 or $379 interesting. I can't see them doing well unless their street price is much lower than retail like their E10 and RS10.

Yup, the Sport is $200 and the Pro is $280.

Redcat's latest propaganda indicates that the Sport's lockers are plastic, which frustrates me. Even at $200, if you're going to give me sticky tires and a 550 can, give me a metal locker! By the time I upgrade to metal lockers and CVAs, I'm likely to be approaching the cost of the Pro.

This needs a different servo horn since the steering radius is poor, as in original scx10 poor. I am using an ECX servo saver for the time being and it is better as the ball links clear the servo body. Then I trimmed 2mm of that useless section from the knuckles. I also moved the ESC down to the side to lower cg - but I don't crawl in mud.

The tire up top weighs almost 5 oz so I'm replacing that with a mountain bike or something

If anyone has one of these and a SCX10 with the Cherokee body, does the Cherokee body fit on the Gen7?

So the pro has metal lockers? That's still not a lot of money for most of us adults here. $200 $280. Really the same money.
