I am going through transmissions like butter. I just replaced the main diff gear and top shaft gear as well as finished my 4th diff rebuild. The diff rings seem to be wearing thick grooves in them to the point of corroding through diff gear. I am keeping my diff as loose as my friends, who hasn't even had to open up his diff yet.

quick question on Spring and oil changes.

A guy at my track running the B4 went to 40 weight oil all around. Didn't get a chance to ask him why.

What effect will this have in general going from the stock 30 weight?

What effect have you noticed by going to stiffer springs or softer springs? Feel free to get detailed, took awhile for me to get it all down in onroad so I want to get a good feel for what the changes do in offroad.

well going to that thick of an oil will make the reaction of the car slow down,it will feel "lazy" for lack of a better term. it wont absorb bumps and most jumps as well either. springs will take a while and i am off to work so i will post later

ARE U holding the trottle wide open whille in the air and landing on a high traction surface with wheels spinning? IF so that will do it.

Defintely let off the throttle when you hit down. Really will mess up the tranny that way.

i'm not to familiar with off-road racing that much, but does changing springs really matter, assuming that i race quite often.

also, is it reccomended to change spring set-up as the track conditions dry-up? or become loose?

Yes very much so.As far as changing springs for a dry track,I change rear tires first,then if I have to I'll change oil/spring set ups.
