definitely just some.
look on the TLR blogspot post, thats the perfect amount to use.

too much, and it will create friction, and typically where there is friction, there is heat, and where theres heat, theres power loss.

Use about 4 small drops of white lithium grease around the diff gear.

Wow I think they should actually build a little MORE play into the diff and allow you to shim it out. Mine seems just a TINY bit too wide for the case (RTR gear diff) and this seems to be what's causing my binding...

Be careful not to over tighten the screws in the diff case, that will also cause the gears to drag, they just need to be snug. Use loctite on the screws that go into the motor plate.

Should I run a 6.5 on a large low traction high temperature track? Or would a 7.5 be better? Also what gearing should I start with ?

7.5 should be plenty of power. I have gearing and ESC setup for teking motor and ESC on my web site.

do you think a 6.5 is to much? i have the 8.5 in my 22 buggy and its perfect in the 22 buggy. but because of the added weight i feel like the 7.5 might not be enough.

For a low traction track a 6.5 will be too much I think.

Hello everyone
Can anyone tell me what oil goes to the Losi 22 buggy Gear diff ?
And whats the difference between the numbers like oil 3000 or 5000 or 7000 and so on.
I know Ball diff is better but im amateur and i dont really need all the upgrades
Thank you

Hello,

Higher number = thicker oil

If you're running on loose stuff start at 1000W

Hi, which brushless setup would be best for my application which is bashing and racing?
10.5 non boosted or 13.5 boosted?

I'm looking for more run time and top speed.

Thanks

Well, ok, it's like this - more run time, get a 13.5. More top speed, get the 10.5. If you're racing, check out what the fast guys use at your track - there may have a motor limit, like a 17.5 class, best to ask. If you simply want to do high speed runs up and down your street, get a 10.5 and a higher capacity battery, like 5500mah+ and have fun.

Thanks for the reply. I already have a 10.5 non boosted set up in my ultima scr and after a year, my idle gear broke. So with my incoming tlr22 I want something that's kinder on the drivetrain but still yield the same or more topspeed than what currently have. I thought a boosted 13.5 would smash a non boosted 10.5 but having doubts if it can unload that extra rpm on a short course truck.

What you mean running on loose stuff ?
What will change if i use 10000 instead of 1000 oil ?
I still dont get it what changes if you use thick oil or more runny oil ?
I am practicing on the pro tracks indoor and outside and i want to race one day with the others so i really want to know how all this things works
Thank you again
