Dave has had a TC3, a TC4, a TC4, a TC4, a TC3, an Xray T2 (I never actually saw him run this car), a Serpent S400 (refer to comment about Xray T2), a TC4, another TC4 and finally settled on the TC4. I'm gonna convert him one of these days. Probably after that shaft blows up from the brushless motors.

I've run Xray for the past 3 seasons, 008,009,T3. The Photon isn't the easy build of an Xray but, on track performance makes up for all that. Easy car to setup and work on, I don't regret making the switch.

Dont worry chaps I opened it up carfully and there is oil in there. I am sure a few pages back someone said it is 20k too.
If anyone can confirm that would be great.

Thanks also RC market for fast postage to the uk.Parts arrived today

Don't think the Kyosho oils are light. I've change the oil and Kyosho oils have a heavier feel. I find the best feel for the diff are the 2000wt oil of kyosho. Tried the 10000wt and find that the viscosity is too heavy good for putting in the front diff.

What are the differences in the available shock orings? Both my cars have v1 shocks, they are holding up well though.
