Hey guys.

I just got my parts from dinball.

I ordered the 3Racing graphite front and rear stiffener. I am confused how they mount though. Do they go against the shock tower or in front of the shocks?

Anyone with a picture would be great.

Thanks!

They mount directly onto the front of the front tower, and to the rear of the rear tower.
So on the front the order is shock - stiffener - tower
And...they look cool but don't actually do anything...

Whatever fits. There are only a limited number that will fit. Core 3200, Orion 3200, Yeah 3200, Harris 3200, Harris 3700, Intellect 4000 etc...

The Tamiya Manta Ray ball diff is similar to the TA03 one. Both will work fine. Ihaven't used the 3Racing so I can't comment on it.

Can anyone settle a little debate. I just wanted to know, if the radials that come with the m03r, are infact the s-grips. The numbers are the same on the sidewall as the the s-grips, but it doesnt say s-grips.

I'll go for the TA03 diff if you're going for tamiya. Heard that the Mannta Ray's diff is a little more heavier than the Ta03's..

My "R" came with the #50683, standard kit tires, which do look like S grips but are nowhere near as grippy.

No, they are the kit style hard compound radials. Not S Grips.

How much AW grease should we put in a gear diff ?

We are in test mode now and would have liked to try to lock our gear diff partially before trying a ball diff.

Thanks as always

I know you'll hear otherwise on here...mostly from those that run with more power than a silver can. But I shim mine rather than use the AW grease. The grease, even though thick, it will heat up and sneak out of the gear case and make a mess. I use 2-3 shims per side where they call for 1 on each side in the instructions. It makes a tight diff without completely locking it.
