Sorry, getting confused.

I ment the AE Black Grease. There is also AE Diff Lube and Silicon Grease.

Which one is considered better for the ball diff in the Scythe or is there another one that is better again

Green Slime, I'm building diffs not shock...........doh!

Cheers

Black grease for the thrust assembly, clear silicone/ball diff grease for the main balls.

We have a team driver that races for T.O.P. here in NorCal and his car looks very dialed. I might even get a car now after seeing how his car handles. So far, he's been undefeated with his sedan .

Good to hear the success is continuing over the pond!!! So far the Scythe has TQ'd and won a round at every Northern/Midlands indoor carpet championship event on rubber tyres! (BIWS, West Bridgeford and Carpet Masters!!!) Let's hope it can continue!

As this car has a more flexible chassis than most other cars, would I run a heavy oil or lighter shock oil than say what i would use in an XRAY etc

Does this car work with foam tyres, I see all the success with rubber but not foam.

Thanks

the reason for rubber success is thats all we use here in europe, ive tested on foam at 1 meeting and the car was very good really smooth and carried lots of corner speed,

now regarding flex in the car has it got the standard plastic bulkherads on?

if so run the std 3 hole pistons and drill them to 1.2mm each and run 40wt oil all round for rubber tyres and 60wt in the front and 45 in the rear for foam

this is just a starting point

thanks jimmy maddison

The thin chassis doesn't add up to chassis flex. Because of the large central motor mount, most of the chassis flex is taken away.

most of the flex actullay comes from the top bulkheads where the shock towers bolt too...

i tried a std car compared to a full alloy car, and there wasnt that much difference dont be fooled by thinking you need to by all the alloy

i actully won a big carpet meeting with a std car,

regards jimmy
