Opinions?
THANK YOU!!
I think a lot of it is personal preference. I have 5000 in my DEST and DESC and it works for my driving style. I went with 5000 in my DEX210 and it does push a bit so I'll probably drop down to 3000 the next time I rebuild my diff.

I run on ozite carpet in the winter. It's a tight, technical track so I need more steering than I would if I was outdoor.

Something I learned from (I think) Dino is that it can take a little while for the fluid in the diff to warm up. If I just throw my buggy down and drive, it handles different than it does after a few laps. Sometimes I'll even hold onto one of the rear wheels and run it at say 1/4 throttle just to get the fluid moving.

I remember reading that. I am on indoor clay/dirt mix. Med to high bite depending on watering level. With colder winter I think I might go with 3000 as well. Should lower my other cars for winter as well. Thanks!!

Yea I've noticed that with the diff oil on clay with Med traction to semi high is that if you go thicker than 3k it takes really . 2 laps at least or so before it warms up and gets constant . So I would stick with 2k to 3k .

Hello ecoastrc,

I dont know exactly, what messurements you need, but the distance between the thread holes left to right is 26 mm and the distance between the upper and lower hole is 14 mm.

Hope that helps?

Thanks TC5.

To you and everybody else: if you are running the plastic internal gears which lowers the rotating mass do u think you should go with lighter oil as well than you would with the metal ones?

I use the plastic gears with them being lighter im not sure actually you would think heavyier oil with them. If so about 4K is good i haven't ran the metal gears for a while but.

It may actually help more the metal gears with mod motor so it doesn't spool up so fast easyier to get on the power .

We have a new ozite track coming our way. What tires are best for this surface?

See if they allow foam tires. I recently picked up a set from Gone Bananas Racing and really like them. They wear well and have plenty of traction.

Before that, I was using Pro-line Pinpoints and Wedges. I liked the Pinpoints, but wasn't real happy with the Wedges. I was going to switch to carpet tires from Schumacher or Dboots but went with foams instead.

We used to run ion's on the ozite, but it would eat the treads off the tires in about 2 nights worth of racing.

I would try primes... I think they would hook up well on the rear. you could try Panther slicks, but I don't think they will be near as good as the primes.

For the front, I used to run dboots blockpass... they worked very well. Any kind of stagger rib or "carpet hook" front tire seemed to work good.
