This is with a TCX.

rule of thumb, higher the traction heavier the oil and vice versa. Its all about finding out what works for you.
Thanks goots. I have decided on 55wt shock oil in the diff. I also ordered an Associated spring kit. They are same size and you get more choices than the Schumacher. I had trouble finding Schumacher springs. I am running 40wt front and 35wt rear. I also took off the rear sway bar. The car is really starting to handle well.

I would try the HPI black spring set....they are absolutely great to tune a car with.

I have heard that, but I like looking in my track box and seeing the different color of springs. Makes it easier for me. I also need to get a lighter battery. My 5000mah is a bit heavy. I just have 5 of them so it's easier.

Red face Great Start.....then

Well, ran the Schuy this last weekend and She did pretty well with all the changes. Was turning good laps in practice until got bumped into the wall. Done, broke a front A-arm. I notice that the A-arms were graphite, not great for a bumpy low to no bite track. I ordered some short med flex ones, to replace all of them, front and rear. Where, other than Amain, in the states do you guys find Schumacher Mi4CX parts?
Cheers

Cool Diff height?

I found out today that my Diff height was way to low. I had it on the lowest setting and need to raise it to the highest. Also the pivot blocks need to be adjusted to the 0 setting. Slowly I am going to get this car dialed in. Oh yeah, my belt was to tight as well.

Diff can be either low or high, nothing in between.
Everything else is just different belt tension.

BTW: Diff is always low, i have never seen high on a setup sheet
