The reason why they say "Diff" oil and "Shock" oil is because 100-1,000 is commonly used in shocks, 1000- 500,000 is commonly used in diffs.

Hi Paul, I bought an after market diff thrust assembly. The rings are grooved, but when assembled it is the same size as the Xray one. Is there a difference in performance? I am planning on using the after market rings with the Xray thrust bearing.

If it were me I would call and talk to Bryan or Ralph. I can't imagine a situation at RCAmerica that either one of them couldn't handle.

Paul / EA / anyone who rocks

When your driving do you brake alot or do you roll through corners? If you do use the brake do you brake before turning into the corner? Do you use drag brake? Is there anything noticable about your car that lets you know when to get back on throttle to power out of a corner. Do you adjust your steering d/r or do you keep it the same always. Are you very smooth with the throttle or twitchy through the curves?

Thanks for the Help!

I have had the hardest time with braking since I started using brushless.

Hey Paul,

I'm running your Cleveland setup w/ 1.5 front & 2.5 rear camber on a tight technical layout, the car handles well but I am looking for a bit more exit corner steering (push on power) ... I could sacrifice a bit of entry corner steering if need be, any suggestions? (standard hexes all around perhaps?)

Also a general question .. say you have 1 front & 2 rear camber .. what causes you to go to 1.5 front & 2.5 rear camber .. or vise versa (since you are increasing/decreasing both front and rear at the same time). Are you looking for more/less lateral grip? what are you sacrificing in each case?

Thanks in advance.
