I only put it in upright mode, because I got my shocks pre-owned and assembled, and I couldn't be bothered to disassemble them and make them IFS. I usually have a standard touring car body on anyway, so its hardly an issue.

There are only 2 people running a TA06 at my club, and I am one of them. Most of the line-up are modified TA-05 IFS's and the majority are TT-01's still, but there is the odd xray something and even a Schumacher Mi4CX Pro in the highest heat.

Yeah my buddy and myself are the only ones running the '06 at the local track, and I believe there is only one other guy running a Tamiya in the whole club, and I believe it's a '05 IFS. It's mostly a Xray/Associated crowd.

Does anyone have problems keeping fluid in the rear gear diff? I ran two battery packs and I already have fluid leaking. I'm currently using 3k and used green slime on the o-rings. Any tricks out there?

I have had the same trouble, ended up sanding flat the diff gear then using grease on both sides of the gasket. It helps but not sealed completely.

i got an epic precision screwdriver set, with a 1.5mm hex attatchment on it, so i can tighten those annoying screws on the dif properly, so i don't get any leakage now....

I use black AE grease in it. Works great and no leaks.

Default speaking of front diff

anyone tried a one-way on concrete?
I am thinking about investing in one if the car doesn't sell.


Also,
How are you guys getting 190mm track width? My car is short unless I use HPI 3mm offset wheels. I am already using 5mm tamiya hubs.
I would like to run this car in TC,

Yeah I just rebuilt mine with the black grease, seems like it seals better. My problem has been with the o-rings, not so much with the gasket, that has been leak free. I coat both sides of the gasket with diff fluid. That seems to work good.

190mm is a maximum width, and you use it as a tuning aide.

I only use AE grease and pack it in the diff heavily.
