I picked up my new SCTE this past week. I decided to rebuild diffs with 5-7-3 instead of grease before i run the truck for break in. After filling the f-c-r diffs with fluid the outdrives felt a little rough when i turned them by hand. I broke them all down again to ensure i put them together properly which they were. I also made sure i didnt tighten the screws in the casing to much either. Is this normal when the diffs are not broken in yet?

I run it with an RX8. 43 tooth spur, 14 or 15 tooth pinion. I've been running it on carpet tracks all summer. Great power. Temps were topping out at 180 so I added a heatsink.

Hi there,
I would like to try some more "punch" with my current setup (Mamba Max Pro SCT with 1415 - 2400 Kv). I am looking at 2 options:
1. go with 3s instead of currently 2s
2. go with higher pinion (21T - 23T) but will need this, which is USD 75...
Any of you could advise?
Thx,
V

Gearing up will make it faster, but probably not going to give you the punch you are looking for. 3s would do it, or trade the 2400 in on a 3800.

Default Help!!!

Hey guys,

I recently purchased a used scte on Tech, and discovered after a few runs on it that there was some leaking/wobbling in the rear diff. Found that the bearing that goes inside the diff case was missing, and the part of the case where the ring gear is situated was badly chewed up. Instead of the bearing are the pieces pictured below. I couldn't find these pieces in the manual provided with the kit, and was wondering where in the heck they came from? From what I can tell of the manual, only the bearing, diff, and ring gear should be in the rear diff case, correct?

Also, there was a fair amount of gunk (oil or grease I can't tell) inside the diff case. Is this normal, and is there a way to seal the diff so it doesn't leak? Lastly, is there a link available for a cleaning agent for all those diff parts?

Sorry for all the q's, but I'm new to this truck and trying to figure out what's going on.

Well, those are the pieces of the bearing minus the balls. Some grease is necessary on the ring gear, most kits have more then enough. Brake cleaner and a piece of cloth are my tools for cleaning oil/grease. You can carefully sand the burrs on diff case and use a small amount of black grease or liquid rubber on the blue insert that is inside to stop the leaking.

Thanks for the reply guys....I was hoping that was it. I'll be out at OCRC most likely Friday for the first run. Just look for the shiny new truck

Wow, I guess that explains it...never seen a shattered bearing before, but I suppose that given the weight/torque this truck has to sustain, perhaps that's normal. Thanks a lot for your help.

Ten-T and the 810 are the same.
