Default Oil in rear gear diff

Keven,
As a general rule on high traction carpet - what are the affects of lighter oil vs. heavier oil in the rear gear diff? I need just a tiny bit more of mid-corner steering and I think I can get that by simply running heavier oil in the diff (currently running 35wt Associated oil). Should I go heavier? Thanks in advance for the help.

I do not know how it will acct but tc6 and tc6.1 with havy oil in rear end (even stock setup for both) with 1000 or 2000 or 3000 or 5000 ae diff oil is much better for drive, it lost nervous, drive from cornet to corner.

Just try it, I switch to havy oil, maybe some more drop at front end and car is much better and much faster.



But I can be wrong ...

Dear Keven,
I wanted to mount the spec-r DCJ made for Tamiya in my TC6.1 so I had followed your instruction. I already bought drive shafts and I'm wondering what size of HB hex did you use, was it 4 mm or 5 mm. I don't also completly understand your words: "then for the blade, I put a 2mm hex in our curent blade in the hole to make it a tiny bit bigger". Please explain it and correct me if I'm wrong. Do i have to dremel c-hub a lil bit to fit?
Thanks in advance.

For the blades, you should enlage the hole with a 2mm drill.
No dremel needed, you can do it manually).

I don't know about tamiya hex.
I've the HB but can't remember the size. I only know they are black. I think you should buy the one that are closest to the Ae size.

Tamiya Hex will work or HB hex, or Reflex just cam out with theirs as well in 4 and 5mm so that is a good option too. AE Hex are 5mm

You have a few options, RC9390 just released a DCJ for our car as well and fits the AE Hex and blade.

RSD also has a good dual joint for TC6.

For the blade when running the tamiya, what I meant is that I usualy just stick a 2mm hex driver the tip into the blade hole and spin it fe times and then take it out and it is perfect size ! that is more the ghetto style, if you want to do it right, a drill bit would be best !

I have found 0B in the rear and 0B/3A in the front to work best for me on carpet. with shorted links. The higher roll center and long link was ok but seemed to make my car easy to drive but didnt feel locked in when I tried it.

I've already bought DCJ from spec-r, most of guys are runnin these so i decided to buy something popular. Thanks for your advise, trf hex works great, they are quite simmilar to associated ones - 5 mm and blue!
