By loose stuff, i mean slippery, like dusty or sandy track

The thinner the oil, the freer the diff will be
Thicker oil will give a more locked diff

Freer diff is better for slippery tracks
More locked is better for grippy tracks

Hope it helps

They are only good for stock racing. If you use in Mod they will not last.

Welcome, I read those links for a few months when I got started in this hobby and they help a lot but do not be afraid to ask questions cause it will save you money in the long run.

I have not run them personally but I hear good things about them. I would stay away from super stock 13.5 with them and use them for 17.5 only but maybe Casper or Frank would be able to give a better opinion.

I would not say a BIG difference but every little bit helps. 17.5 they should last a long time. In a truck 13.5 will be pushing it. They will work but I would not expect them to last a life time.

Talking Congradulations

Nice going your going to Love this Truck. Look's like you have it all covered. I would go to Caspers Page and Install his setup: http://www.casper-rc.com/
Click on Information page > then Setups
Go to your Local track and see what tire combo the top guys run. Then see what Motor is run the most so you get to race a lot.


Mitten makes some cool side guards: http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...ard-ext-4.html


mbtoolmaker35 makes the alu steering slider: http://www.rctech.net/forum/members/...35-144019.html
I also have some sliders of His , Brass and Alu. PM him or Myself I will help you all you like.

Not sure the 4 deg rear toe block was needed but if you are on real low traction might not be a bad idea.

TLR released 22T specific front hexes. If you use the SCTE ones you want to put about .5m between the drive pin and the bearing to space the SCTE hexes out a touch.

I would also recommned the TLR334000 orings for the shocks.

I just picked up this kit to run in a small in-door off-road dirt tract. What spares should I keep in the toolbox?
