What's the part number for the Kyosho o-ring that is being used in the diff?

The diff with the original o-ring included in the 2014 kit is leaking at the out-drives ...

Thanks!

Did you pull them out first and oil/lube them before filling the diff? Mine doesn't leak

Just finished installing the 2014 upgrade kit,
I had the same issues everyone else seemed to have.

I didn't need the 0.2mm washer in the pulley assembly, with it there, it just bound up tight, but it has no play issues without it and the bearings are free.

Also my centre link on the bell crank has a silly amount of play, I installed the old centre back with a 1mm washer under the ball stud to give it the same setting as the new one and it is perfect, go figure ?

I do like the new motor mount, just waiting on the new shocks to be released now...

Beth.

And don't forget to clean the bearings of the diff housing!

That's what I used, built it like my old durango gear diffs...hmmm....and fyi if you didn't know, the kyosho orings make the diff a little stiffer. Even with 1000 wt it feels more like 2-3k

On the stock good o bd7. What's the best way to gain more mid to exit steering?

It turns in great! If not a bit too much and then steering just dies.

I was thinking of putting in some antisquat shims?

Try running more caster and or stiffer rear springs and or less front droop and or thicker rear diff oil.

That's a nice looking car. Did the 2014 car come with the carbon servo mount?
