I believe your correct. I keep the Tekin and Brushlesshobbies.com tuning software on my laptop so I can quickly and easily change my esc settings.

My BCE is doing GREAT! Running the stock rear brace on a highbite track.

Have any of you guys tried experimenting with grease in the diffs and just abandon the oils altogether? I run Lucas oil Red N Tacky #2 in all my diffs and love it! Truck stays consistent for a whole 10 minute main and can out turn anything on the track.To me,there is a reason they come with grease in the diffs.Just my .02

GO KEVIN! Perfectly said Ryan.

On another note, I have found a way to crack my Kingshead chassis under the motor where the side bumper screw goes. I was taking a nice BIG jump and got tackled by a Losi Eight mid-flight. It doesn't seem to affect performance, but just seeing that crack bugs me.

I may have to make Kevin Smith an offer on a chassis....

I"M THROWING MONEY AT THE SCREEN BUT NOTHING HAPPENS !!!



But seriously, yay !!! \o/

How does kick up affect steering? Jacking force maybe???

Less kick up = more steering but worse bump handling .....

Incorrect......Limiter Limits Bottom end, Does NOT Limit top end.

I understand when you run oils, you can tune for track conditions and allow the diff internals to spin at different rates of speed. When you use grease, do you run the same grease in all diffs or are the different "weights" of grease to be used?

Grease Has performed Flawlessly on all types of tracks for me. From The NitroChallenge 2012 to the MN series Tracks to my High Bite Home track. Grease ALL the way. Not to mention it doesn't break down No where NEAR as fast as oil Can and Will. Can u say Rotten Egg Oil....

So you simply run the same type of grease in all 3 diffs then? Sounds like it would be a lot easier and it would end the "leaky diff" issue that most have.

I think Ryan is the happiest of us all that the competition is finally catching up and comig out with strong, durable cars. Finally he has more leverage on Losi mgment to release a beefed up version of his favorite toy that surely has already been through a lot of testing.
My biggest wish is a new and improved manual that has a parts explosion showing ALL parts with part numbers, including screws and washers.

ps. TLR introducing a hopup for the Tekno would be lovely

I agree 100%! I`m sure there are thicker grease out there if you wanted to try different viscosity.I run the same grease in 3 diffs aswell,and the reasoning behind it is pretty simple.The truck will "diff out" before it actually body rolls.Alot easier to drive and has that "out of box feeling",but just alot faster.

I`m still trying to figure out why y`all run gold hard springs and 27 wt oils?!! I run 45 wt all around stocks in the back and blues up front.Keep in mind that I dont hit big triples that have short shoots and 1/8th buggies are barely downsiding,but I can run a tighter,more precise lines lap after lap with this setup.And grease dont leak
