A shorty lipo is also on my shopping list, to move more static weight forward.

Track I race on is tight , indoors , textured concrete, ,with street circuit style bumps ( adds very nice character) that can move the car around a bit.
The traction is good and only medium shimizu tyres can be used up front, the softs get very snappy mid-corner after a few laps.

A little birdie tells me I have a parcel waiting for me when I get home...

Any build tips?

Take your time, i found the kit has allot of small screws in it and they are very easy to lose. The other things I was told was fit the king pins for the front springs in upside down so that the weakest point of the pin is inside the front wheel hub and tends not to brake so easily.

Here is some pictures of mine almost finished.

i also prefer medium tyres that have good balance between cornering and road grapping

Hi,

my diff is leaking its oil when I power at high speed. I already replaced the gearcase with a new one. I also pushed the screws as far in as possible.

I use an GM Sport 13.5T motor.

What can I do to stop the diff from leaking?

regards
Oortael

Don't overfill it, and don't over tighten the screws that hold it together.

Take the diff apart and make sure the face of the cup side around the screw holes is flat. The screw holes can pucker up when screwed in. Either file it flat or sand it flat, then clean and reassemble.

I would also use Tamiya thick anti-wear grease to seal the cases and out drive seals.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

I had a similar problem and my diff wasn't smooth.

I followed these instructions
search Google for "3 racing diff" and it should be the first link.
-i'm not allowed to post links yet.

and now no leak and a very smooth diff.

I couldn't find a M2.6x0.45 tap but I was able to use a M2.5x0.45 with similar result.

So I've mostly finished the build, and I've run into the same problems as every body else with the motor hitting the upper deck mount. I've had a look through but couldn't find the pics of what people have done to modify it.

I'm also thinking a lot of the problem is the tekin redline I'm using being to fat in the back of the motor. By the looks of it, motors like the Reedy Sonic, Team Powers, Gens Ace... with the tapered rear and smaller timing adjustment ring should fit a lot better. Can anyone confirm this?

Gearing wise, I'm not sure where to start either (other then the biggest pinion I can fit right now being 18T...). Large track, long straight, 17.5 Blinky.

The Novak ballistic fits the best. I can fit a 31 pinion and 35 spur with the Novak. If you use the aluminium bulkheads and motor mount you can fit a 34 on a reedy sonic but you have to grind the motor mount for clearance. You can also drill new holes in the chassis and top deck and move the esc door forward a little to get clearance.

I moved the battery door post forward 8mm and ground the upper deck to make room.
