Whazzup Tron!

I wish I could have made it back for a second day, unfortunately my brothers were in town and I only had a one day pass to race..... Plus my top deck was snapped in half from the front straight impact from Drew...car was just never right after that.

See ya at the next one tho!

You can also try things like less rear toe like you mentioned and a stagger in ride height (little higher rear)

Hope this helps
Thanks for the help, sins then I have opened the diff and noticed the oil was all gone. What's the best way to prevent this, I have rebuilt it with greenslim in the out drive and on both sides if the gasket. I have the white gasket is it the right one?

What turn motor would you use on a med small technical track with sp esc and turbo software, 7.5t, 6.5t, 5.5t or lower?




Thanks

Make sure you are using the "X" rings and the new gaskets are green but even with all the new parts you will still need to fill/check the oil level often, as for motors 5.5 or a 5 are good ones with no boost.

I think crabboy's post should help you
Im not really sure how you can stop the leaking im afraid...

I think if you use an SP motor, you could try 4.0 or 4.5, if you use like an Orion motor, use 4.5 I think you should use the standard 205 mod software
