I had forgot also until I went to the manuals. Been 15 months since I build my SC5M.

I believe Associated part# 91461 should be the whole gear diff kit with everything needed. As far as fluid, I'm not sure because I have never tried it but I believe its a pretty heavy weight. I'm sure someone can chime in with more info about the fluid

I would try Cav's SRS setup. It gets the truck low and rotation is pretty dialed.

Oil weight is going to depend on your traction and track condition. I would recommend starting at 5000 and then go up or down according to how the truck does.

I would start at 10k for that kind of surface, maybe have some 12k available as well.

I was going to suggest 10k but wasn't sure of that was accurate or not.

I have one built and ready to drop in my SC5M when I get to open my present in the morning. My little Momma would not let me open it today on Christmas eve. , making me wait till morning. I will not get to race my SC5M until Jan 13 to see how it works in race conditions. But I will let you know.

That would be great. Let me know your thoughts and if you noticed any difference (good / bad) my
Biggest complaint that I have is that had to make adjustments every other run since I bought it about 6 weeks ago.
