I'll be there Wednesday. I'm hoping my durango diff fluid will be in as I'm going to swap out the rear diff and put in the new 2.0 drives as well. I also have to finish up mounting my Azashari body as well.

I really need to track down some new lipo's though before this fall season kicks off.

go 10-3 or 7-3 in the diffs, light green springs in front, dark green in the rear, 35/30 shock oil, 3 hole pistons all around. That will be a good starting point, especially if you are running on high bite tracks.



B-Man, a shorter rear link will let the rear end come around more, I would try sticking with the long link and getting the 1* rear hubs... best of both worlds
Thanks. On the springs is that what you run? I thought it was opposite, light green rears and dark green fronts. One step lighter on both ends. Just a question, thanks again.....

I got those Team Orion saddle packs. The 4500mAh are 24.5mm tall though. You can get them with Deans but is a bunch of wire that you may not want. They sell ones for bullets, or as they call them "tubes," that might work better for you. They fit perfectly in the 'R' version. They are 45C and freakin' rip!!

Define permanently! But yeah, they are wired to the cells inside the case. I opted for these since I had a little trouble in the past with those tubes that are soldered directly to the cells . . . and they had the Deans already wired up. The leads are quite long for the Rango and they use a 12 AWG wire that looks more like 10 AWG with the silicone jacketing. Nice packs though. I give them an 'A.'

Guys for a little more rear on power traction, should I go down on the oil? It seem the rear always washes out when I try to get on it. I tried the slipper but when I get in trouble I can't clear certain jumps. Heavier oil makes it more posi, correct? Thanks.......

heavier oil in rear will gain more rear traction and lose a lil steering...

I guess it depends if you are talking about in the turns or down the straight. Let us assume you are talking about in the turns since in a straight line the gears are locked. I surmise the idea behind a differential is that one side is turning different from the other. The thicker the fluid the more resistance you will have--no mystery there. If you are "diffing out" it is because you are running too thick of fluid. A thicker fluid will be slower to lock the gears back up--the outside wheel takes longer to catch up. So, the result is that on power traction is compromised. So I guess go thinner? What are you running now??

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree. Every car I've driven, this one included, gains rear traction by lightening the rear diff action. Obviously if you go too light you'll diff out but anything around 2k-3k in the rear should be fine if your looking for more rear traction.

Coming out of turns, and going down the straight. I tried 2,3,5 all seem about the same. I know the heavier will make it turn less, but what about on power? I thought lighter oil would let the wheel with more traction hold up and let the wheel with less traction spin, there for gaining a straighter acceleration, not fishtailing. The heavier the more the rear will kick out. Is this theory right?

Bman, are you running any weight in the rear? I run the rear brass skid plate and my rear is fine with the 3k in the diff.

Just the side plates. I am going to run 2k this week to see if it helps.
