It will stay in place after your done pumping. Make sure you clean the excess silicone oil off your shaft after you're done since it will make handling the nuts more difficult. shock mounting nuts that is...

I have only used ball diffs, but wanted to play with gear diff on some high bite tracks, what diff oil would give me the closest feeling of a ball diff?

Quick question will JConcepts Rulux 1/10th wheel fit on the B5m? The site speak of B4 and B44. Just don't want to have to return them after ordering.

Yes, if it is designed for the B4 hex the wheel will fit the same on a B5.

Unless my memory fails me, the Rulux wheels are not hex compatible. They were before hex adapters were the norm.

That is correct... Rulux rears use the pin style mounting and the fronts have 9.8mm hex (4wd) or bearing in the wheel (2wd).

With a Trinity D4 Maxzilla, I was running 69/31. Just went up to a 32 pinion. My can timing is at 55 degrees.
