You won't get it tight enough. My gear diff is so tight you can hardly turn it.

Those are the equivalent oils for *Xray* rated oils. Here is a link for different manufacturers equivalents:

Must confess that seems very heavy oil for medium grip asphalt.

What track/air temps are you getting?
Have you tried thinner oil, i.e. 450-500?

At all the time I drive 2000 in rear on low asphalt and low/high carpet this set up works great for me.

Sorry, I was thinking about shocks, not gear diff.
Not paying enough attention. Doh.

just adjusted my steering as per setup on the pic i uploaded....its very nice...i can see why they put the link on the side of the saver.....left mine in the middle...the epa is 15% more one way but adjusted that on my radio.....now i have the same travel both ways....only have to adjust dual rate!!!! glad i got the exotek brace....got no binding what so ever....and i could use the spacers i got for the servo mounts

Not really worth getting the 12 if you have all the option parts like new upper clamps,gear diff and new chassis like exotek,smokem,cso and etc.It just doesnt seem really worth it.I like the idea of making it so there is a conversion kit and etc easily do able.But its just my .2cents worth

I ran the smokem first time the other day and i already beat my fastest lap times just in practice when the track is extremely low traction.
I been running the tamiya shocks now for a month or so and really like them but have realised when mounted on the car the visible rod is shorter than the xray ones so im sort of thinking of trying the xray aluminium ones now.
