I'd bypass the Sidewinder and get a MMPro if you really want a Castle ESC. Just my .02.

and
http://www.nitrohouse.com/p24072/Dif...duct_info.html
Are these what I want?
If not, please tell me exactly what I need. Im generaly bashin offroad, street, gravel, grass, etc. I plan on gettin to the track a few times this summer and get into racing again. Im generally looking for the best all around off-road set up. But I see some oils say cst and wt. Im kinda lost. So I just need to know exactly what I need. Please respond asap so I can order it.
Thanks

I know I haven't replaced the grease or whatever is in the diffs since I got this rig but I'm planning on running 5-5-2 and see how that does. Any thoughts or advice send them my way. Thanks in advance.
I have been using three in the front, five in the centre and one in the rear (3/5/1). Havenít had any issues with the front spinning faster and the combo works well on lose or hard packed surfaces.

Those oils you have selected will be fine. I have been running the same brand diff oil AT (Associated Lucas Oil) for nearly six months now with no problems at all.

Be careful not to over tighten the centre diff. If you over tighten the screws you can distort the diff housing and it will constantly leak. Screw the Delrin Spur and diff housing together until flush (not tight), then in a circular rotation, nip up each screw half a turn until firm. Be sure the gasket is clean and free from the original packing grease.

Diff oils irrespective of the manufacture use similar methods for describing the weight or viscosity of the oil i.e. 5000wt/5000cst/5k diff oil. Even though the descriptions are different all three oils should give you similar results.

CST is just an acronym for centistoke which is one of the units of measure for viscosity.

TT body is the only one that fits right and looks good, I have tryed them all, the t4 body has to be cut apart and doesnt look very good, the tt body is it.. Expensive and hard to find sometimes, but thats the one for it...
The front body mounts are at a weird angle, and the wing in the back makes it impossible to fit any stadium truck bodies with out cutting huge U shapes out of them, which leaves it open to get sand blasted.. THe tt body wraps around everything and protects your electronics...

If memory serves, he also modified the mounts so it fit and looked decent.

Thanks for the reply. I got impatent and spent the extra cash for the OFNA oil. I just wanted my order placed so its in the beginning of there line to ship. I ordered 5000 wt for the front and center as recommended by many and they only made 1000 wt so I got that. 5/5/2 was the one everyone said was good. Do you think the 5/5/1 will be good aswell?

I really think the 5k in the front could affect your steering from what I've been reading. I may go 3-5-2 and see how it goes.

Im running 5-5-1 and I really like it. I removed the front sway bar and that really improved steering for me. You should try it out, it might work for you.

Guys,you should mention where you are using each setup.

I have 7k-locked-3k configuration.But it won't work for you.
(Since it's for wide on-road turns)
