What setup are you running ? Track conditions ? Running any weight in the rear ? 1* rear hubs ?

I've used the Tresrey blanks with success. Never even noticed if the center hole was bigger or not, they worked fine. I also ordered a bunch of tapered blanks from Nick on Oople, and they work awesome. But, it took me about 2 months to successfully get my order from him, with his being in the UK and me being in the US. The first batch never showed up, lost in customs or something. He sent a second batch, and they finally showed up. 1.5x2 hole front pistons and 1.6x2 rear pistons work great. 30-32.5 wt losi oil front and rear. Stock springs.

Yeah the center hole on the Tresrey are a little large but imagine they are doable. I will try to work with stock piston configurations but good to know you did not have an issue. Cheers!

I run 24/25 depending on track layout with an 8.5. A cpl pages back I said I made a mistake and have been running 24/87 with a Tekin 6.5t with great results.

my diffs are leaky on the V3, how'd you guys solve it? It seems to be missing a gasket seal, that's where I think the leak sprang

There is no gasket, but they should not leak there. Did you grease the o-rings?
Mine have not leaked at all.

Also try using some fine emery (sandpaper) and lightly in a figure eight motion lap the diff housing surface that bolts to the gear. You will see there are high spots around the threaded holes. I do this before every refill.
