Our carpet fuzzes a lot, so on newer carpet it may not be required as often. I clean them more often when running on asphalt due to the dust and grit on the track.

I can't build anything to save my life

When you do the gear diff up is oil suppose to seep out a little????

I have done everything the instruction says and can't get it right, I HATE that black o ring more than anything in the world

Maybe a tiny bit, but it really shouldn't leak. You might be filling the diff with too much oil. I try to replace the rubber o-ring AND the paper seal each time I open up the diff. Make sure the 4 center gears are seated in all the way and fill with oil til it's about half way up the center + piece that holds the 4 gears. When in down, underfill rather than overfill. Then make sure the o-ring and seal are in place properly and it shouldn't leak.

the gear diff assembly is very crucial, once you do it wrong, your life will be in miserable

That black o-ring really isn't needed. I just used some Green Slime where the ring would normally go. Built up 2 diffs this way with relatively light oil and I haven't experienced any leakage so far.

Also, when you're building your diff, the half that you put oil in should be 7.90 grams totally dry, and 9.20 grams when filled to the correct point with oil. So if you have a pocket scale, that is a pretty accurate way to do it.

I've found the best way was to actually put the O-ring onto the other half on the diff housing from the one suggested in the manual

I actually put it onto the lip in the other half, then with my finger put some of the oil onto the o-ring.

When you put the two halves together I lower the thinner half very carefully down onto the larger half which contains the oiul and the o-ring
