Default Gear diff oils

Hi guys,

Im currently running the spec r gear diff in the rear of my tcx. Im racing indoors on carpet using Fastrax 1000w oil. I was just wondering what are the cars handling characteristics of using a slightly thinner or thicker oil?

hey Guys,

Have been running Xray for a few years and decided to move away and try out the TCX. Any hints/tips on the initial build?

Looking forward to getting a car setup that actually corners well

Thanks

RedRc reported that Andy Moore used the new springs when winning UK nationals.

Any idea where I could see a setup sheet with info on which springs he uses?

I know there were new Moorespeed springs flying off the shelf at the BTCC meeting at Kemble in the UK on sunday. (Which Andy won). I think there was about 5 spring values. If you drop an email to the lads at www.mmrflux.co.uk then they should beable to tell you what they are.
