Anyone know if the bearings that come with the kit are oiled or not, as website says they are and book has little pictures showing that you should oil them?

i guess they just show you that so you know where to put the oil if you rebuild them, as the Instruction Manual dont really give u info on removing the rubber seals or anything. (the setup book has a section on bearing maintenance)
but yeah some people like to give them a fresh drop of oil before they put them in, id say some people even rebuild there ball diff before they put it in.

Why do you want to run 48p instead of 64p?

Look at what I did in post #1610 with the heatshrink.
It's possible you have tightened the grub screws too much and it's causing the pins to bend slightly.

When built, you should be able to rotate them easily in your hands.
When only holding the driveshaft, if you twist it the axle should always hang down as you rotate it. If it 'sticks' then something is wrong.

Hi Guys

Are any of you running the T2 009 with a Tekin RS Pro and Redline 6.5? If so would you mind helping me out with gearing. Some have said 6.8 but recommended FDR is 7.5. I just want to get the most out of the motor as possible without blowing it up of course which I'm notorious for doing.
Cheers
Adrian

I was running Redline 6.5T geared at 21/78 (7.04 FDR) with lipo and LRP SXX esc (throttle profile 4). It ran with about 180-190F after 5 mins.

I like 48p for more durable for rocks etc.

Plus the kit comes with 48p for a reason doesnt it.

I dont need ultra fine gearing increments.


So any know of any shops?

If any of you racers are looking for a parts to support your car I am selling a bunch of them. They are new in the package except for two of them, multi-diff (used) and aluminum shock bodies (open package but new). Here is the link: http://www.rctech.net/forum/6278538-post1.html

My schedule doesn't fit with the on-road racing scene anymore so I am selling what I have left which is unfortunate because I really liked the car.
