Hey guys,

I've encountered a small problem whilst transitioning from running stock to modified, and the main issue I have been experiencing on our medium/low grip ashphalt surface track is the lack of rear grip. After altering parts my setup to try and eliminate this problem with no sucess, I have come to the conclusion that it's the oil in my rear diff causing this problem(??)

Currently running the standard 750wt Yokomo oil that comes with the kit, and wondering if this does happen to contribute towards my problem, which it may or maynot, is this too light? Running this with 4.5t high torque motor (x11 octa) with no boost and mild turbo, and about -35% expo on the radio to try and control this problem.

So, for modified, I've seen setups with oils 1-5k variants in the rear differential on various med/low grip ashphalt track. For something relatively small, with somewhat small amounts of grip most of the time, what oils would you suggest?

This is reall appreciated guys, so thankyou for spending the time to read this.
Bill.

Thankyou for the quick relpy, I'll throw some 2000cst in the rear and see how it goes, if this problem continues I'll try go thicker again, after I've played with the setup to see how different it behaves.

Cheers,
Bill.

You can also try to reduce droop on the rear, and stiffer springs in the front

I've been trying some of Volker's setups, but I guess my driving style is a little different. Here is an easy to run front diff setup for those who want to try. Yes, I'm running anti-dive. 0.5mm shim. I've been running 0.8mm shim before and liked it. I wanted to try a little less for more mid/exit so I went with 0.5mm. I feel it is good on technical tracks with plenty of turn-in. Easy to drive. This setup also runs with Gravity LGC tire treatment. I feel this tightens the car up. Not sure if I like it as much as the SXT 3.0 that I used to run. I'll have to switch back and see how it does with a different set of tires (don't wanna use same tires treated with LGC).

Looks good. That's a good neutral setup!


so what happened to the +2.5mm or so under the inner rear camber link that you were running before? how did you end up solving the rear end swinging around?

Being out of racing for 2 years I forgot a few things, but I ended up adding -30 steering expo (curve) to dial out the twitchyness of the steering during initial throw. Switching to premounts with a thinner insert also helped out. The car wasn't floating on the tires anymore. There may have been a few other factors, but I think steering curve on the radio helped out the most. Especially with a high speed servo. Simple and easy, something I should of picked up on early but forgot about. If the rear end still continues to be a problem, raising the rear inner link does actually still help out as well as lengthening it which I have done to "tame" it down a hair.

You should try using a short servo horn in place of the negative expo.

We use the one from Tamiya but any horn of similar length can be used. This tames the steering on carpet in especially in stock classes where you're not pushing the limit of the tires.

When we go outdoors, we will use the long direct horn for quicker off center response.

Awesome. I just switched to the XRay saver (from direct), I may give the shorter hole a try.
