Default How are the RTR electronics doing?

A friend wants to buy an SCTE. I am looking for input from people that have bought a RTR. If the RTR ESC, motor and servo are holding up and working well with 2s batteries, I will tell him to go that way.
So, who's bought the RTR and how happy are you with the stock electronics?
Thanks in advance.

Default Diff oils

My SCTE is pretty much setup with the Casey Peck setup, including 3/3/2 in the diffs. I run on a large 1/8 scale outdoor track. The truck works pretty well, but I'm looking to make it just a bit easier to drive. It seems to be a bit loose right now and once it goes it is hard to recover. I'm running the RX8/Pro4 4600 with a 14t pinion.

Theoretically speaking, what would each of the following diff setups do, compared to the 3/3/2 I'm running now?
  1. 5/3/2
  2. 5/5/2
  3. 5/5/3

Thanks

Thicker front will decrese turn in but increase exit steering.
Thicker center will decrese steering all around but increase forward acceleration and decrease front tire wear.
Thicker rear will help lock in the rear end a little more on power

When are the HA camber and steering ball ends coming out? I have a ton of slop and don't really want to put the stock ones back in. I thought they were suppose to be released by the end of November.

Thanks Casper. Now if I go to 5/5/3 from 3/3/2, will it handle similar since all the weights have been increased? Honestly, I liked the way the truck handled with the stock grease. I just had issues with the truck starting to diff out once I added the power of the RX8/Pro4.

What do you mean diff out? I was recently running a MMM and 3800, which I just upgraded to an RX8/ Pro 4 4600 and I am constantly fighting my truck under hard braking and exiting turns. My truck wants to drift all over the place. Im running 5/3/3. Im thinking about putting 5 in the center to help with more of a 4wd effect and transfer more power up front. Am I on the right path?

Spinning the inside tire on corner exit or the fronts on the straights.

I would go to 5 center for sure and maybe 7 up front. With 3 in the center if the track has decent traction you are getting almost all your drive from the rear wheels. Moving the battery forward can also help.

Ok sounds good. I think now with the 4600, 3k in the center sounds like it's to thin. The track I run on his a high traction track and I think im sending way to much power to the rear.

Ill try 5k

You guys got it backwards...

The lighter the diff oil the more power the front wheels will see when accelerating.

Under acceleration the weight of the truck shifts to the rear. So under high traction situations the rear hooks and lifts the front. The thicker the center diff, the more power transfered to the back. For example if you were to put 50000wt in the center the truck would wheelie. If you put nothing or 1000wt in the center the front tires would balloon like crazy.

Same thing with the front. When turning on power the weight shifts to the outer rear of the truck. Thick fluid helps direct the power to that outer front wheel and helps pull the truck thru the corner. Thinner lets the diff unload (spin one out drive and not the other) and blaze that inner front wheel with no traction.

heres a good article for more reading...
