This is interesting because I just watched the video of Ty Tessmann showing how he builds his diff and he suggests filling the diffs 100% full.

I read that also.....my experience with it? Didn't work. As soon as I dropped down to just over the cross pins my diff was normal

I've always filled my diffs just over cross pins or top of spider gears and haven't really had any issues with them.

It's like the auto world, your not going to fill your differential all the way full, it will leak out filler hole and/or spew out breather tube if filled too full.

I'm in NE corner of Ohio and our 4w group is up to 14-16ppl and with various models. There are now (5) of us though with the D413.

Did you ever come down our way? McCulloughs Offroad? And... yes, I agree. Just like a real car the diff shouldn't be filled up the whole way. Not sure why this concept was stated in an instructional video, but I went with someone that has been doing this longer than me. Lesson learned, go with what makes sense in practical application.

Ty isn't the only one to suggest a full diff. Here is a video from Ryan Lutz. He basically fills it so it is full and wipes off the excess. I build my diffs to full and haven't had any issues.

+ YouTube Video

I have the RCShox pistons in my B5M and it is stuck to the track. And with much lighter oils, I still had very good pack. I am looking forward to trying the 2 stage pistons on my d413 as well, as my track is bumpy. My 2wd car also didnt dump over as much in the corners and carries most speed wit the his 2 stage pistons. So I am optimistic about these pistons in the d413.


Since we are talking about pistons...Who remembers Jump Jets?

I'm looking at getting a new 4wd buggy and I was wondering the pros and cons of the d413 how are the shocks holding up do they pop off easily

Pros: Stupid mounts of durability
Cons: Car has some slop

Shock caps? The hold for a while, but they are like ball cups. Once they start popping off, just replace them. I use AE shock caps on mine, so it is a non issue.

RCShox now has the pistons and new Rack on the website. The rack will greatly reduce the slop in the rack.
