For the gear diff do you guys use oils or black grease?

I have some large diameter counter sinking bits, might see if one of those would work to put a shampfer on the inside of the caps. The cap to body seal is a bad design, should have better provision for the o-ring to be captured.
Very weird about the shafts, but I polish mine (and hinge pins) on initial build anyways.

I started using the orings off the regular bore shocks for the cap seals. They require more stretch to get them on, making them a bit smaller. That coupled with a chamfer on the cap and no issues at all.

Thats a good idea, I have some old AE shocks around here I could try the rings on.

So I was just about ready to pull the trigger on a Hitech HS-7945TH servo when I came across this SC-1251MG low profile servo here on this thread. Is it better to have a low profile servo for this buggy? Are the too even in the same league with each other? Can I get some feedback from folks that have used either and they 2 cents. Right now I'm running a HS-5645MG, would it even be worth the upgrade? Thanks
