I probably don't run mine quite that tight, it would be easy to overheat the plastic. I use the paper between the gear method, it has never let me down. Even running a spool in the center diff did not hurt the gear, but I'm not racing...

Default Diff fluid

What are you guys who are running the Tekno DM-1 conversion doing for Diff fluid? I'm seeing the 500k being run in the center diff, but what about front/rear? 5k/3K? Also, when doing mechanical brakes are you guys running front/rear disc, or should that even matter if you're running 500k center diff fluid?

Thanks,
Mark

Mark,
Most of the guys I have seen running the Ofna DM-1 as an e-car are using the 2 speed, not a center diff. Thats the beauty of the Tekno conversion it was designed with the 2 speed in mind.

My GT-E has a diff because fitting a 2 speed and brake servo is much tougher with the conversions that are out there for Kyosho's. I don't miss the 2 speed though, the MM with 4S and 2200 kv motor is plenty fast and will be ballistic with a 5 or 6S battery.

Tight tracks require lighter oil in the rear so the car will rotate. High speed tracks with fast turns need heavier oil in the front and rear. A good starting point would be 30k in the front and 10k in the rear.

I am running a mixture of mobil 1 bearing grease and 100k diff fluid in my front and center diff, and it handles very well.

Tylord, You're running the red mobil 1 stuff?

Thats what i run. Centre diff, i packed it with only mobil 1. Front I'm running a xrays active diff (so I run specific oil for it) rear mixture of mobil 1 and 3000 silicon diff oil.

Yeah, been watching that. Danny from Tekno is running cener diff with 500k, but I didn't ask what they were running front/rear for viscosity. The 2 speed is going in the box. I moved all the components to the tekno chassis last night. I just realized with the snr shock towers there's not much for adjustment of ride height.

Which mobil 1? Going to pickup 500k diff fluid on the way home tonight.

Mark

Yeah I have been running the Mobil 1 with a 25% mixture of 100k Mugen diff fluid. I used to run the 500k diff fluid but like the Mobil 1 more. I run this same mixture in both the front and center diff. I haven't tried the Mobil 1 by itself yet, but plan to this weekend.

The Mobil 1 bearing grease is bright red and is very cheap. It can be found at any auto supply store. Comes in a tube or a silver can. You can even buy it at Amain.

Wow 100k in the front. What type of track are you running it on ?. I run mainly oval, so I thought to start off with 30k up front.

I run on a parking lot track that is basically set up as a large 1/10 scale track. It has a couple of large straights and a big sweeper, but other than that fairly technical. I like having the and exit speed out of the corners. It feels like my 1/10 car set up this way.

Did you run at socalrc events?

Oh, one other setup question, what do you guys run for ride height on these? I don't think 6mm is going to cut it.

I am going to be attending the Socal events soon(single full time dad so its tough), but for now, a few of us at work have a private track behind our warehouse. I work for an RC company so driving RC cars all day long is part of my job. I can't complain.
