We've used both the Xray extra stiff and the Tamiya 51000 ( or 84082 ) with good success ... Core RC CR192 for a standard horn is perfect! hope it helps ..

Why don't any of you guys run the Schumacher servo saver? This is what I run and feel that it is just as good as the xray servo saver...

They don't have them in stock, and haven't had them for 8-10 weeks, and they will no be in stock for a while.

SpecR diff cannot be used in the rear but front of Mi5, the stock gear diff seem fine against leaking

Except if you overfill it. My leaks alot now, but I think it is because I filled it above the recomended level.

If you're talking about the cars, my MI5 was a beautiful piece of machinery. I wanted 2 cars and had to decide between the two. I chose my shelf queen (really because I hadn't ran it before). Plus, for VTA/Scale Spec...it kind of a no brainer. The drivetrain is super efficient. Just need another for 17.5.
Don't wanna hijack the thread so back to the MI5.

I will do,

Actualy I hope that when the excess olie is come out, that it stops leaking. But maybe I will need to pull it apart again, and then empty some of the oil.
Actualy it was only a little excess oli I filled in, but aparently it was to much.

Havent discovered any slop, beside the slop in caster blocks.
