I also dont have any problems with the diff leaking , I use the o-ring , but replace it every time I have opened the diff. They are so cheap that I dont re-use them.

When I run on RIDE rex34 tires it is some unpredictable on the rear.
It improved stability i hope

I run indoor on carpet and outdoor on asphalt.
I don't know if the brace will help with rear stability, I think it might reduce rear grip as it is making the top deck less flexible.

Assuming the seals are in right, then one likely issue is the detent isn't seated properly locking to two halves together. If the little bump isn't between the two slots it will leak like a sieve.

I don't have the brace that also connects to the top deck, mine just connects the steering posts. I found I did have good steering, but the car is mores sensitive, so if the rear of your car is loose now, it will probably get worse.

Give the motor mount post a try instead, that helps a lot with rear stability outdoors.

Thanks for response Skiddins I give it a try I,ve made one for myself and it is connected to the top deck, I let you know.

Thanks Dalebur, I have already installed the motor mount post and it helps a little bit.

Locally, guys are having positive results with it and say it's the same/similar to the Xray aluminum chassis on indoor carpet applications.

I've been out of the loop for some time, but what are the best DCJ's for a Xray T3R? Also where's a good online shop that carries Xray parts? My old shop closed down.

I've never had a T3 or T3R, but assuming it uses the same size DCJs as a T4, I can recommend the RSD DCJs for sure. I'm told Tamiya would be equally good. You can also try Spec-R, a lot of people here have run them, though I had trouble with mine. Stay away from the Xray DCJs, they're crap.
