Do I need to fill it up as much as it came from stock or can I go a bit less? Thanks for the reply btw.

I don't think it needs to be packed with grease at all, just enough to lube the ring/pinion.

Thanks!
my ofna gears have been holding up great, just make sure you have your mesh set right and your good to go

I`ve never been a fan of RTR electronics . If your new or don`t plan to race then might be the way to go . If you plan to race , but the roller and put electronics you want in it .

I used to run greese on my ring and pinion gears. However over the past year and a half i started to run them dry. I have not seen any accelerated wear this way. But i also pull my cars down for maintance quite often.

the stock electronics look a lot like the castle creations 4pole system. It even says its a 4pole motor. Same design.... same type of motor. Sounds like a 4pole castle with the stickers ripped off. A lot of people have run the castle system with good luck and good temps. Completely up to you on this one. The rtr comes with everything the roller has + electronics so if your on a tight budget that would probably be suitable for you as far as electronics. Everybody already knows the truck is awsome enough to have its own religion so no worries there

I have found this to be the same here too. I don't do a lot of things no more like when I was a newb.

What do you guys think of this ring/pinion gear? Probably about 60 packs on it before it started clicking on me. I tried shimming the ring/pinion which helped but there was some bind so I ended up putting in a new ring/pinion and it's smooth now.

I did add two shim before rebuilding the rear diff so I hope it will last a while.

That one definately wasnt ever re shimmed after running the car some...ring and pinions in all cars should always be shimmed after breaking them in, breaking the case in, all of that. Then, they will last for a very long time.

Neither have I...

Hopefully with the new shims in place they will last a long time.
