ok good to know, thanks.

Casper, do you know if this is a common problem with the gear diff and if theres a way around it? Also would you happen to know the part number to the gasget for the diff?

I have not used the 22 gear diff so I really don't have a lot of info on it. Looks like the gasket only comes with the case.

I may be way off here so someone with knowledge please pipe in but couldn't you use 'gasket maker'? Most automotive stores will carry it. I think it's either blue or black in color (permatex).

Yes if the issues is with the gasket and not the outdrive o-rings. Getting the diff apart would probably be difficult if you went that route as well. But technically that would be a solution.

It doesn't suck if you don't mind getting it apart. Gary Katz did this with the XXX gear diff. Worked great.

Casper do you happen to know what weight diff fluid comes in the 22 gear diff, I just bought one and was expecting grease when I took apart, much to my surprise there was fluid in it.

Nope I don't. I would guess it is around 5K though.

Kinda what I figured Casper but thought you may know for sure.

Congrats on the great runs, bummer about the hack jobs though but glad it was a good positive experiment that showed promise. How was the truck when rotating turns? Easy to rotate in a controled manner or did it rotate more like a snap turn?
Scott , It was on the edge and very fast, got the traxxas turnbuckles on order for the weekend so that will not be an issue anymore. it was fairly easy to get through the turns, there was one 180 degree corner that it snapped on every now and then, As I mentioned we were racing on ozite carpet and that corner was on some of the old....really old stuff that had less grip. I am very interested to see how this truck runs on dirt or clay with my mid motor the way it is. we still have way too much snow on the ground to thin about that though.......LOL my track beside my garage has about a foot of snow on it here and there, what doesn't have snow has lots of water, hope to out in the dirt with this bad boy soon.

I have 2 of them and both have black grease in them both! Weird!!! I feel bad w/ outdoor starting my 22SCT has become a shelf king along side my 22 as queen cause no outdoor track around here runs much 2WD let alone 17.5.

Ive raced my Ten-SCTE 6 times in the last 14 days. LOL

If its leaking from the case i will give this a shot, nothing to loose by trying. Hopefully its just leaking from the outdrives which may just be worn orings

i am fathomed; how are those bits of aluminum worth $70.00? thats like 25% of a 22T or 22 buggy???
and what good does it do? how does this improve the vehicle?
IMO there is nothing wrong with the current slider design.
