Elboogie-Scotty and Boomer dont Check for width, as long as your wheel dont stick out the side of the body like a REDNECK 78' Camaro you will be GOOD. I ran at IIC last year and width was not a issue, weight, wing height and ride heighwas it you can shave your wheels down on the tire truer, i do it every year at the Snowbird's.

I've several of you guys post on here about the different greases you use in the cvd's for this car so I thought I'd post what I use. It's very clean, dry and very effective. I used their teflon version and don't like it as well and I've used White Lightening but I think this Finish Line Krytox Wax lube is the best so far. Let me know what you think. You can find it at most any bike shop.

Are you talking about in the actual cross joints of the universals or where the universal sits in the cups? The cross joints in my car get so badly worn because i hate pulling them apart and never clean them DoH!

That's exactly the location! Clean them out with motor spray, then put in a few drops and let it dry

Default Diff Screw and Nut

I know that this has been addressed in the forum on pages back but I didn't want to have to go look. Here is my situation:

Someone tell me what the hell is the issue with the diff screws and Nuts!!!!

since I have had this car I have broken 5 diffs screws and nuts and mind you, you are talking about someone who is very experienced with RC for years now. In the past when I had a TC3 and even back to my Pro2 days, I NEVER broke a diff screw and since I have had this car, I have broken about 5. i don't over tighten my diff at all but they continue to break.

Can anyone suggest to me maybe another diff screw an nut (maybe even another manafacturer) that I can put in my car that will not break just because the diff is a "little" tight?!!!

This is the only thing that frustrates me about my car and I need help or suggestions.

Thanks Ice. This will be my first IIC (that's a shame because I live in Vegas) and I wanted to make sure of the requirements etc. I thank you for the info and I will let the guys at our track know.

Drill out the holes in your diff halves and use the Team Associated diff screw and nut. You will be much happier with this setup.

After i build a fresh diff i set it up to it slips with medium ish pressure, it then gets run in practice or run it in on the pit table, they really do tighten up and become smoother as the excess grease finds its way out. Also drill the hole in the halves where the screw goes through to 2.5mm as it looks like when the screw flexes under stress it hits the inside of the diff half when its the stock hole. Only thing i have different in the diff is ceramic diff balls. the screw normally breaks when the diff is too tight before it is run in, i have seen AE screws break at the head and some HB screws break at the thread. Just seems to be technique.
