Hi Drew, do we need to change the front cvd to 50mm in order to use Spec R gear diff in the front? Thanks.

I think the whole shipment is soldout there will be another one coming soon. The best thing is to get one on order. We may still have a few in stock but its not many.

I would start with 2000cst and fill it up. Thats what I have been running, and I like how its feels.

Thanks Drew

I heard people having problems with this, but I have been running the 52mm ECS's with 2.25 shims for width and have had no problems. I run the 50mm CVD's in the rear.

Thanks Drew

FYI, a easy way to check if you're running into bind issues that may require axle shaft changes or width changes, is, take one of the shocks off the end of the car your working on. Have it on a stand of some sort, now, rotate the wheel that still has the shock attached, and as your doing that, lift the other side up via the arm, for the full range of motion, if you have bind problems, your going to feel/see it right away. I know you won't ever use that much up/down, but it sure takes the guessing out of the situation.

Default Gear diff

Hey Drew, Wondering if anyone has tried the NT1 gear diff with the ultralight composite gears in it? I tried it originally with the metal gears but it seemed really heavy compared to the stock ball diff. I'm wondering with the NT1 diff with composite gears should be used with all 4 bevel gears? With the metal gears people were using 2 bevel gears? Thanks

Yes, Blackedoutrevo's car has capricorn gears in his NT1 gear diff.

Thumbs up

Nexus has lightweight composite gears from RCamerica for the NT1 diff (2g for the set), are people running 2 or 4 bevel gears? Starting diff oil weight for medium to high bite carpet?

I run all the capricorn diff parts in my nt1 diff. I say run all four, I havent tried two with the capricorn gears, maybe with 17.5 it would be fine but with mod I wouldt trust it, its not like the gears weight much anyhow lol. As for the oil im not sure on carpet, I just have to say that all the oils in a nt1 diff feel thicker compared to a spec r diff, so keep that in mind

I have not tried it yet, but I have seen it. But yes I would think it would be great and work well with the composite gears in running the 4 spider gears and the 2 bevel gears. I know in the gas car it was 14 grams lighter then the stock gear diff with the composite. Also RCAmerica has the composite gears with the lightweight pins in stock. So I think it would be fine to run all of the composite gears in the diff.

Thanks Drew

I would start with 1000cst and go from there. I have been running 2000cst in mine. But as Blackedoutrevo said the oil feels thicker in the NT1 GD then the spec-r. So 1000cst would be safe.

Thanks Drew

Looking at picture of T3R I do not see any squared sections on the turn buckle where a wrench can be used....is this realy the case and if so how are you supposed to make camber and toe adjustments on the set up board??

The T3R is what you would call an Xray budget car and that is one place on the car they changed in the kit to get the price a little better then the T3 or T3'11. The coolest trick I have seen that people do is notch them . Basically they flat spot two sides so they can use a camber wrench. Some just upgrade to nicer turnbuckles.

Thanks Drew
