I didn't grease the gears and the car will loosen up quite a bit after running a couple of packs

...and once you've run the car a bit you can adjust the shimming on the input shafts and the diffs to get a slightly freer mesh, with a tiny bit of backlash.

I was wondering if you guys put any grease were the diff and the input gear meet.
yodace,
The drivetrain will free up some. If you really want to get the gear mesh smooth. Put some toothpaste in the mesh. And then spin the diffs over for about 2min. Then take it apart and clean all of the toothpaste off. Relube everything put just alittle bit of grease on the gears if you want. I don't because the grease attracts dirt.
And then the diffs should be good and smooth. Sounds crazy but it works well. also take the diff cases out and spin it with a cordless drill this seems to work the best.

I would not recomend it at all. On carpet the traction is high and the cornering hard. You typically want a very stiff chassis. Especially when i go to foams. But i wont be removing that stiffner for rubber either.

Remove it for carpet? Why?

I have been skooled to think stiff on carpet flexy on pavement.

can anyone give me a good gear ratio for a 10 turn on asphalt, that about 75'x40', fairly tight layout. I've been running about 8.1

8.1~8.5 would be good. If's it's very technical, I'd start on the 8.5 side. Does your motor wind out on the straight? Or is it still accelerating? A good deal would be to try 8.1 in one qualifier and 8.5 in the other. Compare lap times......
