Thats exactly what I am saying Fred. It's the BEST diff I have seen so far. Xray's is nice but I still prefer my Yokomo BD-7 diff over it.
Top Diff hands down is this thing for maintenance.

Are you guys changing the big o-ring every time you change diff oil?

I will be changing oil for the 1st time Saturday morning but I know that I won't have to change the oring due to how well thought out the design for the oring is.

Cool keep us updated.

Did you start off at 1000 cst or 2000 cst? Has anyone around you played with the cst in the diff to get the car to kick around the corner better and if so what are your findings at this time?

Truth be told it's even better than the XRAY diff.



Start with Front 1.4mm and Rear 1.2mm. If you need more rear grip run the short 1.2mm and if you need less grip run the wide 1.2mm. Silver springs (kit) all around to start.

Our current 44mm DCJ that you can run is 67699



Which tires?



Correct, I suggest starting with whichever setup you run on your TCX if you're running one.



Sounds like you got a little extra "love" from the factory I'd rather have 3 extra bars then be short 3 bars
Foam tires; sorry I forgot to elaborate that Also, 17.5 blinky.

DCJ 67699 wont fit my car. They wont go in plastic outdrives, dont fit in purple retainer and wont go in metal outdrives either. The pin is much bigger than stock. It looks like we will need 61087 from the TCX in order to run them.

We only run rubber tire, I can't help you with foam tire.

Here you go. If grip is low run the short rear 1.2mm sway bar and if the car pivots to fast/hard run standard HB rear hubs. If the car needs more initial steering run 8.5mm rear droop.

Well I do have to say after starting to build the car I'm frustrated with the whole djc thing. As well as missing a washer from the gear diff to finish building it. The kit seemed very fairly un-organized. But....The build quality is very very solid so far otherwise. The car feels like it is going to be a beast on high grip carpet/asphalt. I can't wait to get it going....just need to get that washer and figure out what I need to order to run my dcj's.

I figured it out two options

1. http://www.hotbodiesonline.com/piw.p...=68770&lang=en

2. http://www.hotbodiesonline.com/piw.p...n&partNo=68769

I'm going with steel and am fairly sure Fred had them on his car today
