My oils ended up at 7, 5 ,3, It was much better than the 5,5,grease!
My Kit was old in late 2004, the diff outdrive 2nd ''O-ring'' didn't Exist!
I'd never had an 1/8 scale and didn't realize that if the diff don't break
you'll lose all the oil. When I was preping for the Winter Nationals there
was/is none of those micro o-rings available outside gear/diff packages.
I bought both in town but 2 kit = 4 o-ring, grease in the rear.

HI WINDELLMC ..

Yes the ttr conversion is here and i will pick up myn next week. About $150 or 75 us $ . Getting the long veresion with braces and longer drive shaft.. Saw one the other week and seemes to be fairly flexiable in chassis may be a little to much don't know till i try it.. Trying to get pistons but might wait till i try the new chassis. I got my new turbo head 8 port hyper and seems great at this point. Im not good at tuning yet but rather loose a little in power and keep running with no flame outs.. thanks talk soon Mark..

An odd question to the more experienced! What can one use to cut the silicon diff oils? Do you just scrape it out the best you can or what? Thanks

Ive taken some flack on these forums for this...but Im tellin ya, it works well and does not harm anything nor cause things to discolor. Go to your autoparts store, and get some NON CHLORINATED! brake cleaner.Along these lines, you could try electric motor cleaner or RC nitro sprays, but these tend to be expensive. Use it to spray the inside of the cases and get all the gunk out. Others suggest denatured alcohal, or maybe some Simple Green.

Hexane is what cuts the silicone. The trick is to find some sort of spray with that in it. Pour out what silicone you can and then clean.

I go with the non-chlorinated brake clean as well. Been using it for three years with no issues at all. You can use the ABS safe stuff but I have been told that it's not quite the same.

The only problem using the non-chlorinated is it leaves behind a white powder residue. Not a problem at all, except for the visual aspect of it.

I think you will be better off with a ttr conversion as i here that the titian is very heavy, do a little research might pay off..

I'd say the Titan is almost as stiff as the stock chassis.

Picked up my ttr flat chassis conversion today.Got the long version, it's more complete than i thought , rear drive cvd, braces, carbon center diff plate, carbon servo plate and all hardwere. Chassis is well milled and thick. This must make a differance on rough track and loomy surfaces. Cost me 150 $ about 70 us $ . Hope to test soon...
