Hey guys how do you tell when your center diff needs more fluid? Does it make a certain noise or feel different? I think my center diff needs more fluid but I can't really tell.

Yeah mine was making a grinding noise. Filled it all the way and now it sounds great. Just top it off and wipe away the excess and you're good to go.

Okay, mine is feeling mildly gritty. Preventative maintenance never hurt, right?

Anytime i get my diff out I clean it. I even do the bearings for good measure. On a side note, have any of you guys used the rcmonster motor mount. My stock keeps coming off the slide. If it comes out when i put the socket head screw and washer, i'll be looking into the rcmonster mount.

His products are usually decent , I have an RC Monster conversion on an RC8 and everything is top notch .

IF you can get it though the Elite RC mount is the way too go IMO , its very beefy and holds the motor nice and tight . I run them on 3 different RC's cause I like it so much .

Yeah i've heard good things about elite rc motor mounts on the conversion threads. I just didn't know the ten-x mount was for the scte. I agree rcmonster makes a good product, but for motor mounts elite rc is the way to go.

It's all right for me. I only run a 13t right now. Like i said if the washer/socket head screw you guys linked me to doesnt work, i'll be picking up an elite motor mount.

well..ordered my TLR Tuning kit locally but he cant get KHz stuff so i'll pry be putting in my order to amain and getting the KH chassis and the dual bearing center diff mount. Im goin with king headz due to the angle they put the center diff on to easy tension in the driveline

I went with the tuning kit even tho i wont need all the parts so i'll be selling the towers, shock caps, collars and stand offs if anyone is looking for that stuff

I use mine one hole short of all the way back. Does that make sense?

If we numbered the holes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 1 was all the way forward and 4 was all the way back, I am on number 3.

My truck is just under 6lbs RTR so your results may vary. But that is the way I have installed it and haven't felt the need to move it.
