I have not used the Hardcore parts. Maybe someone else can reply. Try the TC3 thread as well.

I've seen several way mentioned on the boards. According to Yokomo's instructions. Yokomo shocks do use a foam bobbin so everything is the same.

Fill shock to slightly over filled.
Fill shock cap ( with bleeder screw out) half way.
Install cap.
Push shock shaft in fully.
When all air and oil is expelled install bleeder screw.

Built this way they won't have rebound like a TC3 shock. They will have retract (shaft pulls back in). According to Yok's intructions this is what they are supposed to do.

I built a set this way and they seem very equal but I haven't raced then yet.

It's because the site has changed location. Ultimeweb Technologies graciously offered to host my site.

Here's the new link

Default Aero-Car gear lube

John, How much do you use and how often. I just stripped my car down, cleaned everything, rebuilt the shocks so on..

I need to re-grease the gears now. How much grease do apply?

Thanks.

On a standard diff apply the lube sparingly. I put just a little on about three teeth through the extra screw hole about every four runs with the tiny brush. I had to take the ridges off the brush shaft so it would fit well. On the front oneway you can use more lube as it will not seep into the ball diff.

Johnny-It's probably because he doesn't crash much. I tried running my Losi with a cut down rear bumper. The car takes a lot of abuse on the rear corners landing from airborne situations caused by the plowdisks that mark our track. I would recommend not removing the rear bumper.
