Sup guys

Looking to get myself a Spec R diff and was just wondering what weight oil do you guys run? No to be confused, I'm not after " what weight oil is best.. " just a poll really because I've never used a gear diff like the Spec R before. I have a SP V3 3.5 with 115 spur and 25 pinion. I don't race it at the moment just mess around with it at car parks and such. I know, absurd but that's just me .

Thanks

Probably the wrong thread but it is for my TCX so I figured here should be good.

I have been playing with 1.5 Deg Blocks FF and FR, feels very direct, easy to drive! I think i will just have to test this at different tracks, but other than that, everything else always remains unchanged.

5000 Gear diff oil in Capricorn is equivalent to about 3000 in Spec-R.

If anybody has any questions, let me know

The other shims are a 3/16th shim I think. Very thin. If you look at the alum piece that connects the two bellcranks, there is a small lip that goes towards the bearing side. This shim fits around the lip and when bolted on, eliminates the slop there.
I will take some pictures today and post tonight.

You dremel underneath the block enough so that the belt can pass under it. You need to use Tamiya steering knuckles with this mod though. Otherwise you will have to dremel the outside edges of the block away. And basically it just makes the car have a different feeling, puts the steering elsewere. You just have to test for yourself and see if you like it.

HTH,

Antoni

Yes, it is a of 1.5 block.
I used it only once on the carpet, but honestly I have not found major differences, just a bit "flatter" the front on corner.

Hello Ryan, I have noticed in photos that you have a different upper deck, is a new Smokem?
