Guys

I asked a few weeks ago but didn't really get an answer I understood

What is it with the Oring: 1 or 2 field in the setup sheets? Most have two... how do you fit two orings in the cartridge? And why vs. the stock one?

Thanks!
Paul

Can't provide a specific number
What I do is set the belt so it has some tension (not tight), then back off 1 click
Make sure chassis is perfectly flat before you do this

When I built mine,the stage when the belts are on early in the build,on the diff setting set to low and in the middle,it pulls the front of the chassis off the class plate,one notch looser and it was fine,probably after it's been run the belts stretch so it might not happen,just something to not though as you could build the car with a tweak

Hi
My gear diff is leaking from the casing in my new 2015. It hasn't even run yet. What trick did i miss? Did you put some black grease around the o ring and gasket to seal it all up?
Thanks
Marc

Never had issues with mine leaking other than the gears need to be sanded down to make the gear diff butter smooth.

Need some assistance with gearing a 13.5 blinky. What's a good range to work within? First time running 13.5 indoor carpet.

Thanks

Are you sure diff half screws are all the way in
Also, is it possible you have over filled the diff ?

Had to remove .1mm from the backside of the gears on a 15' diff I built, but it doesn't leak at all, super smooth

Depends on motor, setup, track size/grip
I run anywhere from 4.0 to 5.0

With the double o-ring it is easier to set consistent rebound.

Thanks for the input. I rebuilt the diff with some magic black grease. Lets see if it still leaks.
