When you say new lower caps do you mean the ones on the 2010 spec? So the 2010 spec xb808 would not fit the above kyosho o rings?

What about the diff oil setups I have mentioned?

thanks

The 09 and 10 cars have rubber boots with grooves in the lower caps. Those I've heard can leak so the kyosho idea sounds great...

I like the 5-7-3, but it can't hurt trying different things. I'm notorious for not changing my setups, but I tell everyone to go with it and try something different.

IDK Try 7-7-5, that would be interesting, or 5-7-5 or 7-10-5 or 7-7-3.

Anyone knows of a EU online store that offers the kyosho o-rings?

I have torn apart my diffs and shocks and built them again. Now I have 1/4 wholes 55 oil front and 1/3 40 rear with silver springs (XRay) and I was wondering if it is normal that the chasis of the car hits the ground when I drop the car from about 1 meter high.

PS: Do people really stick their chasis in the dishwasher to wash it?

Default It depends

What is hitting first, the front end most likely. Try the 3 piston in the front with 50wt. That would help, and the rear sounds ok with me....
