Yes - I also run as many diff balls as the spur can take. Think the Kimborough spur means 4 more although it might be another 6.

As for grease I'll use Joel Johnson's Slippage if I've got any left. My supplies are running low. So if not that than Schumacher silicone grease does the trick.

Associated black, or red if its in stock. Recently went to ceramic balls and can say that they are in fact worth it.

Red? I've never seen that.

The labeling is red, the goop is still clear.

Ahh, gotcha. I believe that stuff is the 'Stealth diff grease'. I dunno why but they say not to use it on pan car diffs Unless I mixed them up; there is the regular 'silicone diff grease' and then there is the 'stealth diff grease' (plus black grease, and green slime).

The red is the standard for pancar style diffs, but the black(stealth) also works well, you just use a bit more of the black label.

It used to be that the stealth grease was for ball diffs (transparent grease), the black grease was for thrust bearings (actually black in color). It may very well be that this has changed, I've had my small tubes of both close to 15 years or so.

Does anyone here had problems with the stock FRP lower deck?

I broke mine between the servo mount and the front end and the hit was not that strong, too strange.

After 1 week, again. (with another lower deck, of course)

I just modified the stock servo mount to the aluminium exotek one,can this be the reason?

I haven't run my F109 enough to tell. I know that 3 racing sells a graphite lower deck as well as an entire chassis conversion; might be worthwhile investing in.

Not had any problem with the FRP parts - also run the aluminium Exotek servo mount. I actually think the F109 works better on tarmac because of the FRP parts, and so haven't considered any of the carbon parts.

I find the thumb screws fiddly, so use counter sunk screws and washers instead of the four thumb screws. Prefer those to button head screws that can introduce chassis tweak.

I can't say I've felt any significant difference between the 2 servo positions but that could be that I've also had different servo's in each position... though each will have different bump steer characteristics due to the different arm angles but I've not experienced anything negative in that area

I am not sure about the damper oil... my simple answer is too thin as I am running 60Wt currently and seems to suit me

Will the rear shaft and diff housing of a Tamiya F103 fit on the 3Racing F109? Im thinking of building a 109 from scratch thru parts available with the HK hobby shops since there are no kits available locally. I have an extra F103RM where I can get some donor parts. TIA
