Nice looking car Steve, did you very much away from the kit set up?

I'd suggest AE Green Slime on the oring, might help out. Other possibility is there is something wrong with your diff so it just doesn't seal properly in which case you're probably better off contacting Spec-R directly.

Is the stock spur a 84tooth 48 pitch?

My car is set up exactly as per the instruction manual. I used the shock oil and diff oil included as I wanted to test the car's ability box stock. My only changes were a set ot Tamiya silver clamp wheel hexes, a Tamiya HD servo saver and a switch to 64P gears with a 96T spur and 51T pinion. The rest of my car is stock.

Has anybody tried the Tamiya blue/white springs? How do they feel versus the stock springs? I am racing on medium grip carpet.
