Default spec R diff oil question

Is everyone putting in 100K or putty in their SpecR gear diff? Does that give you enough turn in?

TIA,
Ron

tried 300k, got little understeering into the corner, but the car was very easy to drive.

havent tried 100k but i think it will work just fine, but it will make the wheels spin faster so you will probably not be as fast out of the corners as with 300k

I've used putty and 500K. Not as much steering into the turn, but a lot better drive out than the ball diff... and having said that, i found it a lot easier to play the throttle on the way into the turn to get it to steer with the gear diff.
Try it and see... and check the laptimes

rollbar set is the #1 option and caster bock in graphite plastic #2

thats the most important upgrades if you ask me. then you might want to change the plastic suspension blocks to aluminium when the plastic gets worn out

Ok I put 60K Associated diff oil in my SpecR gear diff and it's almost a spool (when I turn one wheel, the other wheel spins the same direction).

My newbie question of the day is how can I create more turn in without changing the gear diff oil to a lower weight?

TIA,
Ron

Second newbie question of the day, I am using the following parts to build universals:

Tamiya Cross Joints For Universal Shaft Set 4pcs. 53500
Tamiya 46mm Swing Shaft 53724
Tamiya TB-03 Wheel Axles 54076

Will the 46mm swing shaft fit the SpecR gear diff? Does anyone know?

TIA,
Ron

46mm swing shaft will fit nicely with the specr gear diff.
Also you can use trf417 wheel axle and trf417 cross joint
