Just build the diffs the same as the manual says for the plastic gears if you are going to run metal ones

A diff that requires me to weigh oil to accuracy of 100th of a gram.
Yet tenths of mm's difference in the parts tolerance is OK ?
I think not but to each his own.

Thumbs up

Ran this car the second time with m4 scrub fronts and m4 suburb rears.
Shortened rear wheelbase no rear sway bar car was very easy to drive and rotated amazing

Ride height was bones above level .... I think the finishing touch will be 6 degree caster blocks ...

The diffs holding up fine ... Great great buggy!!!!

Sorry if this has been asked before but I was wondering if there has been a fix for the leaking shocks that I read about?? If there is a fix can someone point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance

After a few oil changes mine quit leaking. The tops of the shock bodies needed to "seat in". Some people are using Dex o-rings.
Similar to the diffs, mine leaked at first but a couple oil changes and proper wrenching on my part ended that.

When I built mine the first time I put just a little grease on the threads of the shock body where the cap screws on. Never had a single drop leak. My friend had a little seeping the first time he built them but the light coat of grease solved it.

After initial build, I only had ONE shock leak. When I changed oils I realized I didn't tighten the top caps as tight as they could go. I put an allen in the hole in the top and tightened them more after a rebuild. no leak since and i've got 3 race days on them.

This is what I used on the threads before putting the caps on. Hasn't leaked a drop since I first built them.
