Gday Tony

Got a m03-r last week which has ceramic grease for the gears would you recommend this or use silicone spray as suggested in your settup guide?

Actually I put a "thin" coat of corally diff lube on the inner gears and one extra diff ring inside to tighten the mesh & reduce the diff action. (Give's more "pull" out the corners)

Tire inserts: Right now I'm experimenting with foam insulation tubing for household hot water piping. It adds about 1.2 mm diameter to the tires (Front Only) and seems to reduce side wall flex. Tire's seem to be wearing more evenly too..!

I'm using kit tires for the front and "M's" on the rear.

Use 3 "O" rings on the inside of the shocks w/ 70wt front & 40wt rear.

Simon, the set-up in the instructions for the 03R basically suggests that you PACK the diff with the AW grease. Which will obviously have some sort of locking effect to some extent.
I still just use the silicone spray myself on the gear diff as the 'packed' ones loosen after a few runs anyway, and I'd prefer to have my car consistent all the time.
As for the extra rings and other tricks that people use to stiffen the action, well they're illegal where we race so we don't use them at all.

Ive used the AW grease inside the diff,
What im asking about is the outside of the diff which the manual says to use ceramic grease.

Don't use grease. Silicon spray is fine on out side but I don't use any thing.
Just a warning on AW grease, I use ball diff so I never had problem but some gear diff user told me AW grease leak out and goes into bearing / gear mesh and slow you down on very hot day.

No ceramic grease on the outer diff bits Simon... Dry or just a HINT of silicone spray. Ceramic grease will slow the bugger down!

quick question. My cooper slows down dramatically when i turn, it seems like it binds on something, but only when it's on the ground. When i let off the steering coming out of a turn, it's takes off like a rocket. Any way to fix that, has someone else had this problem? Thanks.

Front : 60D type A with two insert inside(Tamiya hard-53435 on out side, Shimizu sponge on inside)

Rear : Pit shimizu slick soft with HPI mini insert hard

Inserts dont need to be them, sorex mid-B or hard-B work fine.(cut to fit on rear)
