I use 20k diff oil. It works just fine. The oil is thick enough it doesnt run out of the tubes. Using silicon oil lets you fine tune the tubes more easily

Mike, have you raced at Jackson before? is that why your name sounds so familiar to me?

Do you have a 17.5 stock setup you care to share?

Yes I have Ive been running 13.5 blinky. Im running Keven's IIC setup, with .020 front springs and GQ 40/30 tires (Like a jaco Black/yellow), I would think that it would be solid in 17.5 as well.

when building these tubes, I only need to put a coat of the of the oil on the tube (black part)? It doesn't seem smooth when I do it that way.

you should put enough on so that it comes out the pin hole in the blue tube when you put them together.

I fill the blue part about 1/3 of the way up before putting them together. Then squirt most of it back in the bottle as it comes out of the pin hole.

I can show you how I build mine on Sunday Dorian if you would like

This is our new 12th scale rear pod. It features a new ride hieght adjustment system incorporating a independent bearing carrier. This bearing carrier has a set of small precision machined serrations in the face of it that mate to matching serrations on each rear bulkhead. These serrations are .5mm appart allowing for quick and easy ride hieght adjustment. Simply loosen the 4 screws at the back of the pod, move the bearing carriers to the new position using the engraved lines to match each side and retighten. No need to disassemble the rear axle or hunt down the right ride hieght adjusters. This pod also allows us to use a larger 1/4 x 1/2 x 3/16 bearing which rolls more freely and lasts longer than the old small flanged bearing we have used for all these years. This pod is available for the Speedmerchant Rev7, CRC, Associated, and Xray 12th scale cars. It uses a different bottom and rear pod plate, but uses the stock top plate for each car. As of now, the entire pod assembly which includes the bottom plate, rear brace, motor mount, left mount, screws, and bearings will be available from Team Speedmerchant. As always, the aluminum is the best aircraft grade 7075 or 7050 aluminum available for strength and durability.


I've been using one for over a year, it's the easiest pod to adjust and the bearings last longer than the stock flanged bearings.

Jim
