on carpet you should run a gear diff. that way you will get the power down much more consistent

The problem I find with the gear diff is diffing out on sweeping corners and chicanes, even with 5k diff oil !
I find the ball diff faster, however it sometimes randomly slips. Often our indoor tracks are multisurface, so gear diff is not suitable.

99% of tthe buggy's that run on carpet tracks ( and those tracks also have some parts that are made of stones or other surface ) run a gear diff.

its just a fact.

Is 1K diff oil too thick for gear diff on indoor clay?

I have about 10 or so batteries thru my gear diff but it feels really notchy. This is by holding the slipper shaft and turning one rear wheel. In one tire rotation there is about 6 spots where the notchy feel is.

'In the Pits' says it will feel notchy for a while. But how long do I wait it out?

I noticed the metal bushing found on the front shock eyelet is longer on one side. So depending on how you mount it, the shock angle will change. Should I mount it with the shock forward or back.

It's hard to tell by looking at the cheesy arsed drawings in the manual.

The longer side goes to the front, I thought the manual was pretty clear

The longer side goes to the front. If its to the back, your shock will rub the camber turnbuckle like on the B4.

I thought the manual was clear in this too.

Actually, I was also in doubt. But I saw a RTR on the LHS that the long part goes toward the back...at least on the rtr
