3.How do I fix it?
Congratulations on your new car!!!!!!!
OK, having just done a bit of work on my new IGT, hopefully either I or some of the other more experienced folk can give you some help with this!
First off, what color was the oil??? Clear????
More then likely what you have is a leaky front diff - since the rear comes from the factory with grease in it! Sooooo, dig a bit deeper in the box - in it you'll find a buncha instructions!!!!!!!
You'll find the assembly instructions - just go backwards!!!! And, when you get to the front diff - check to see if it was assembled properly at the factory - INCLUDING the tightness of the 4 diff screws and making sure that all o-rings were properly installed!!! My guess is that you'll find something pretty obvious - loose screws or something to that effect.
I refilled my front with 100,000 wt silicone fluid.....
Dive in - this is a hobby and it's a hands on experience!!!!!
