Hand sand with 240 grit paper sand the top of the diff case before building this will increase the seal the gasket has against the plastic..

Don't be scared to try different things such as setups. "pro" setups seldom work for us weekend "club" guys.

Think outside the box and learn from your trials and errors.

Race and marshal against and for others as you want them to do for you.

Practice Perfect. I don't believe in the saying "practice makes perfect". If you practice bad habits you will only ingrain them into your driving.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR MARSHALING DUTIES!!!! All too often these days races are being held up cuz of slack-ass marshals.

Don't throw hissy fits and don't cuss the marshal cuz YOU crashed.

Remember there are usually kids around so let's teach them good habits and not bad ones by showing our ass when things don't go right.

The absolute best "trick" I can tell you, have fun. 99% of us don't pay the bills racing toy cars. We mostly create bills LOL. Keep it in perspective.

You can use thin heat shrink around the ball end. Just shrink it on the ball end and put a little oil on the heat shrink to lube it up before slipping the link back on.
