In Australia we run MM rush mostly, as it gives the best balance between grip and wear. Sorex is the best over 1 run, Ride's have pretty good grip but the quality isn't always great and the rims break pretty easy

Isn't the whole point of the small o-rings on the outdrives to stop it leaking out the side, surely without them it will still leak out the side?

Sorry let me explain some more. The kyosho o rings swell a little and this causes the outdrives to bind up. By removing the outer o ring it makes the clearances just right with the slightly swelled Kyosho inner o ring.
The other option would be to install slightly thinner metal inner washers. But all the 15 diffs i have built for me and friends have been great and leak free.

I should also point out that there is nothing wrong with just using the kit seals, but i can tune the diff more consistent with the kyosho o rings and requires less rebuilds.

As with anything you read on these forums. You can either try it or not and see if it works for you. I am just sharing what i have found works for me

Always interesting to here peoples thoughts , I have been running the 15 diff as standard, just takes a few meets to bed in, big improvement over the 14 diff which leaks out the outdrives. Had no leaking at all with the 15 diff. It's never going to be as smooth as an Xray one but I actually think it is a better diff overall

agreed, I could get my 14 diffs not to leak for a few meetings but would eventually wear and leak, these are a 1000 times better which ever way you build them.

Definitely . I have been running heavier rear diff oil of late compared to the 14 car, even when using the old diff, I have noticed the likes of Ronald and Yannic have been doing this also

I asked pretty much the same question a few pages ago and never got an answer. Hopefully someone can chime in to help. The bd7 forum is strange. You can ask a setup question or chassis question and get no answers but an oring question will get pages of response. Go figure.
