Default RC8-E Diff questions

Ok, so I want to know what everyone is running in their RC8-e. Is it any different from what you would run in a Nitro RC8?

Be sure to read the FAQ section of my web site.
There is info about shimming the diff so it doesn't self destruct from all the torque these electric motors put out.

5000 all the way around for me...I look at it like you would set it up as a nitro because either way you are sending power similarly and the weight of the vehicle is close to a nitro spec...

Right now I plan on running 5/7/3, I'll see how it handles the power, and how it handles the track (Pegasus Hobbies) and I'll adjust from there.
