I'm running 5-5-3. I used to run 7 in the center but when all the diff issues popped up I went down to 5. What type of changes will this make if I go up in the center? Sorry I'm still figuring out diff tuning.

I don't have my MMP on my SCTE as I am going to get my SCTE tomorrow. On my SC10 it performs flawless.

I have been reading about the problems people are reporting and hope that I do not have the issue with the SCTE and the MMP.

Should I go ahead and pick up a BEC tomorrow or what other alternatives are there? Would rather just go ahead and get what I need tomorrow when I pick up the truck from the LHS.

Also, What would be a good Steering Servo that won't break the bank that I can get at my LHS?

It's my understanding that the higher you go in the center transfers more power to the front wheels. I believe if you have the book on the truck it explains how fluid changes effect the way the truck drives.

I'm not going to say you aren't having probs but I will say that if you came to my track I would have you up and running with that MMP because I run 3-5 of them on a weekly basis and never have probs.
But I too had probs when I was a newb

The thicker CD oil gives me more steering on power and can give you that faster acceleration which could be a benefit in jumps without a lot of run up.
I did the OFNA fix so I'm not worried about my diffs.

Thicker center diff fluid transfers more power to the rear wheels, which brings more on power steering.

It's the opposite. The thicker the center diff fluid, the more power gets transferred to the rear, which makes it turn, or get looser, under power. Thinner fluid lets the diff work more, letting the front tires spin faster than the rear, increasing stability. Thin is usually easier to drive, thicker is generally faster if you ccan drive it, and still get enough steering.

Thicker center fluid: reduces off power steering, increases on power steering, increases acceleration, makes the car not track so straight on a rough track.

Thinner center fluid: Increases off power steering, decreases on power steering, decreases acceleration, tracks straighter on a rough track.

Correct me if I am wrong but putting heavier fluid in the center diff will basically make it "lock" more.

Thanks guys. I always confuse that. 3-3-2 is in it now and it does push on power which is funny because I was wanting just the opposite. DOH!!!

Yes the 3 in the center will push on but give offpower steering. 5-5-3 might be more to your liking. Diffs are dependent on traction and power.

really???? is this without wheels? im asking because eight-e and others including myself have done quiet a bit of lightweight and as you can see by the pics we are at 6 to 6.1lbs. i know i can still remove another 120-150 grams, but i dont feel like swaping my mmm for the mmp, t-bone front bumper, receiver box and my lipos are 35 grams heavier than most out there.

Tested some viper motors and esc settings today. If any of you guys need some help with our products let me know. I posted some settings in the viper thread. The viper 4.5 is an outdoor beast.

The real problem is finding a style that suits me. Then again, setting it up for off power steering and then going on power through the corners doesn't help much. I will adjust my driving this weekend and then make a decision. I think driving this setup correctly will be what I need but time will tell. Thank you guys for helping me see this...
