If you add to much, the fluid will come out of the screw holes during assembly.

Put some fluid in the bottom of diff drop first set of gears in then spin them put some more fluid in then second set of gears fill the diff to top. Take the sun gear put it in then take a hex driver and scrape the excess oil off the top should put fluid level. Line the sun gear up so when you install ring gear holes will be lined up. Oh yeah don't forget to put light coating of oil on diff gasket. This way you have same amount of oil every time

We are on Med Bite indoor tight track.. Steering and push seem better in and out of the corners. I also went to a 3 dot rear sway bar and run the rear arms adjusters on the low side. I will be trying the regular hangers instead of the +2 this weekend.

On my 14 car 5-7 front and 3k rear fluids worked best at our track. The 15 seems more nimble so thinking the heavier fluids may calm it a bit. So gonna try the 20 front 10 rear

Just purchased and build my XB4 2015. Can someone post a picture of how they setup their electronics for the shorty conversion?

Just pulled the trigger and ordered a 15 from amain. I'm really looking forward to building the car. The 44.3 wasn't working for me and went up on the chopping block after a month of headaches trying to get it right for me.
