Tweak sorted
New chassis. Car is much better on track...

I'll be heading to the Tamworth Cup, should be a good weekend.. Come and represent your state! AND bring a 12th scale, we are running 10.5 blinky 12th and its fantastic

Also,

what ratio range should I aim for with 13.5 blinky in a touring car?

I'd like a rough ratio for...

Small tight carpet
Med outdoor
large outdoor

Cheers
Phill

Default Rear gear diff

Will the EX diff fit in the photon? I'm asking because I'm using the spec-r gear diff and I rebuilt it Saturday night to race Sunday and after my first run the oil was all over the chassis, so I took it out and it was EMPTY!!! Just the oil that wasn't wiped off the gears was left.. I knew it leaked but that's a little crazy

yes - the EX gear diff will fit.

i'd recommend that you use a VERY little amount of CA glue on diff housing to make sure the oring is stuck to the plastic. after doing that i hardly have any leaks. i put a little glue on the plastic parts, and then place the oring into its proper location. i let everything dry, and then re-assemble.

EJ initially mentioned this a few months ago.

For the ex diff? Or the spec r?
