found a v3 in stock... purchased. Hopefully it wasn't a website stocking error, and it actually ships!

Well, I finally got mine in the mail from A-main Hobbies this afternoon (was back-ordered for weeks.)

Very excited to build it, but right off the bat I have a question. I am building the diff, and it comes with diff oil, but no grease.

Does it matter what kind of grease I use for the shafts/O-rings, etc or is it a minor thing where anything will do? One diagram online I foudn when I googled it had the guy lubing the shafts with Durango shock oil, but since I am new to the car, I didnt want to chance it w/o asking you guys first. Some other guy used some "green sline" on the petit Rc site.

I have old silicone ball diff lube, old Tamiya black gear grease lying around, as well as shock oil, and the V3 diff oil..

Does it matter what I chose or is it a minor thing?

It should be a white container with green grease in it.

Quick question. I finished building the diff, and the joints/axles that come out of them.
I noticed that in the diagram there is a round plastic "cap" (part # 310039") that is supposed to pressure fit over the axle where the pin fits through. I am guessing that its in case the grub screw comes lose, the pin doesnt fall out.

I cant seem to get the cap on. Is this really necessary to have? It seems as long as you use loctite, it wont be an issue. I dont want to skip this if you reccomend doing it as per the manual.
