All I use is OFNA oil, and its been great! Its easiest to stick with one brand, because one companies 5000 might not be exactly 5000 compared to another. OFNA oil is usually the easiest to get, at least at my shop.

I ran 5-5-3 for the longest time, but for the last couple weeks I have been running 3-5-1. Not sure which combination I like better yet, still experimenting.

this 5k is awfully thick. It even says diff lock on the bottle. I would say it's at least equal to 7k mugen.

running less anti squat(on the x2 it would be running the 1 instead of 2) allows more pressure to be placed on the rear wheels when accelerating. This limits the buggy from stepping out sideways due to wheel spin

Hi guys! I'm racing my X2 for 2 years now. But this year, I have so many problem with my rear diff. It's the second pignion and ring gear I broke!! Miss 2 A-main final with this... It looks like a shimming problem. Do you shim at left AND right of de diff or just the side of the Ring gear ?

Also, a little comment about the 2 center drive shaft ( dogbone now). I add 2 X1CR before my X2, and I preffer the "yoke" style drive shaft instead of dogbone shaft on X2. Dogbones are not as tought as yoke drive. Need to be replace offen... What is you idea on this?

Thx guys!!

buy a new diff case!!! also i used 3 on the side with ring gear and none on the other, shim tight. but i replaced diff cases ever 6-8 races.

and on the dog bones, i took rubber o-rings and put them in the out drive cups so that the dog bone isnt loose, lasts alot longer that way.

I confirm... My diff problem was caused by bad shimming method. I put a new diff, shim it only on the ring side with 3 shims for me, and voila! No more prob.

Thx...
