Chris RC, it is ok to use associated black gease on the thrust only and Losi diff lube on the diff, I prefer associated diff lube on the diff though, it seems to be smoother and last longer between rebuilds
My bad im trying to setup my xxx4g+ out there

Well a couple runs ago on my xxx-nt I broke a rear shock tower. I just want a little more durability so I dont break a part in a race with my xxx-t. Can I see both front and rear?

Run the rtrs rear shock tower. It is quite durable & it will help to keep your rear arms from breaking if your car goes too deap into a rut on a big landing.

I'm sorry, but telling someone to use the setup from Cap City for another track is just plain wrong.

that track is bizzaro land and nothing that works elsewhere works here. Most of the factory guys that used to (and still do) race here, have a complete different car for the place.

although the traction is slowly coming up from the gallons and gallons of pancake syrup being used, its no where near what you will find at any good blue groove or clay indoor track.

yes , I know . This is the kit setup he mentioned to start with . You will not find an exact setup from a kit or pro sheet that will exactly work for your track and driving style . Best bet is to start with that and go from there , talk to a few fast regulars at your track about what setup they have and what you are chasing for setup and they will be the best to help you .

I got a setup from lbckevin for the mf2 setup at OCRC. He has a mf2 with a cr chassis and he gave me a whole setup. So would 27.5 and yellow springs be good there?
