Aluminum Center Differential
The DBXL-E is equipped with front, center, and rear differentials for full-time 4WD. The hard-working center diff gets an aluminum housing and steel spur gear. This increases durability, and the metal surface helps to draw heat away from the assembly. Ribs on the aluminum housing increase its surface area as well as its cooling ability. The center diff support includes mounts for the optional mechanical disc brake offered by Losi. Long dogbones connect the center diff to the front and rear differentials, and the rear-most drive cup is greased and protected by a rubber boot. The bevel gears attached to the front and rear differentials and the pinion gears used to spin them are made out of steel and feature spiral cut teeth for increased strength. The rear end uses dogbones to drive the rear hexes, while universals are used up front. Rubber boots are used to keep grease on the hub side of the shafts in and debris out.
