Paul, i heard a rumor that you will be attending the Mile High Indoor Champs in Denver in a few weeks...... any truth to that? if so, what size body clips will you be using? and do you think the fist will make a special re-appearance? thanks in advance.

I know I read this question somewhere maybe even asked it before... but all things the same on the car, what sort of change do you see between the 1m and 2.5m snot in the front diff?

Shock oil... gear putty... erasers... earplugs... 1 million diff oil... 2.5 million putty... fine.

I am officially drawing the line on this one and just.. saying.. no.

Good question! Now that I know this service is available, I'd like to put in a request, as well. I'm thinking more like the mod D/E main, for me.

Paul,

What's the best way to remove dirt from the heads of screws on the bottom of a 4wd buggy?

Yes I will be at the Mile High race in a couple weeks. authentic Xray body clips really make a secure hold, which makes them my body clip of choice.
I think it is time for someone to come forward.

The 1 million will have more initial and mid corner steering but you will have to drive smoother. The 2.5million you will be able to drive harder but still have a touch more entry corner steering than a spool. Its a good consistent three steps to have (Soft, Med, Hard) (1M, 2.5M, spool).

Hey Paul, not sure if I have the experience to voice this correctly but here is my question...

I am running a t4 with a close to stock setup. I am running a front diff with 500,000 and 1000 in the rear. I was think of going to a higher cst fluid. The car turns in nice I think, just looking for a bit more stick in the rear. What I think is happening is the rear want to keep rotation at corner exit, it kinda feels soft there as I pour on the throttle. I run on a fairly high traction (mid high) track which is small and technical. Next month is an oval though.

Hi. Yes, i think you are too soft in front diff. what you explained all seems like symptoms of having too soft of front diff oil. for me 1million cst is the softest i would run, 2.5million cst i would consider medium and a spool i would consider as the other option. kinda like (soft,med,hard). so the first thing i would try is going to a spool or a thicker front diff fluid.

Thanks

So, don't change the rear fluid? That is why i was asking about. Didn't think of going harder in the front.
