hi guys, i have a lil problem with the trf v2 gear diff. Even though i read alot sayin it wont leak, mine still does! I build it as per kiyo's recommendation at titc and filled with the stock 900 oil. Oil seems to leak a lil frm the side of the gear, not the oring. i have a feeling the gasket dont seems to seal the oil good enough. Any solutions?

Green slime on the gasket stops most of the leaks

Tamiya needs to put the 416WE back into production so the boys have a chance on carpet again.

Hi guys, i need help...
I just broke my 417x lower deck ,
I know that there are a lot of chassis for 417:
Smokem
Exotek hard and soft
Cso CNC 2.5mm
Tamiya 417 and 417x
What do you suggest?

I was thinking to get the Cso 2,5 mm but i didn't find any comments on internet..

Kyosho released their metal gears. I'm not sure what the benefit of them is over the standard plastic, but seems to be out there as an option now for some brands.

I have had the same problem from the start, first with the spec-R diff and then I bought the V2 and though it gets faster lap times and fits better, it still leaks a lot. I'd say every 5 min run I do I lose 25% of my oil through the pulley which means it comes out past the gasket even though it's a new one. So far I have tried a few combos and I havent got enough success to answer you but I will try some kind of make-a-gasket paste either just on the paper gasket, or just stuff the big gap between the pulley itself and the sidewall so that it seals the 2 main plastic parts together as well as the gasket inside. I'm going to try and find a good product that can do that without being impossible to clean off after

This leak is really anoying; it messes up the lap times a lot. I wish they could make a V3.

kyosho gears don't fit either, the sun gear is too big in diameter.

The plastic gears are fine, if people are stripping them it's because the mesh is wrong or the shims are collapsing.

WOW, amazing. I put the 417x (my first Tamiya) on the track to race last night and it was great. Started off kit setup including supplied oils but Blue springs all round. Changed to Yellow rear, removed the joining plate from under the motor mount and went Kyo 2000wt in the diff. Then the car was amazing, still broke lose a little on power at exit of the hairpins, but all-in-all was a pleasure to drive and showed in my results.
