I just recieved a xray multi-diff to install in my T2. The package didn't come with any one-way lube for the bearings and the instructions don't mention anything about lube. Are they ready to go from the factory or do I need to lube them before running it?

Send a message via AIM to goop

you can use that hudy grease they send you for your diffs as a one way lube as it is very thin and wont slow down the bearings that much

The one-way is lubed allready and doesn't need initial lubing.
But if you need to re-lube later on you should us 309580 One-Way Lube 25ML

Thanks! I'll get a bottle of one-way lube on order and run the diff as is for now.

You'd be suprised where I hang out!! Unfortunately, I won't be able to do any Saturday racing until tax season is over. I've got a new T2 just sitting on my workbench waiting to be run. The next time I'll get to run on-road is the February 19th ORL2 at Kranzel's. If you want to try some oval some Sunday at Horsham, let me know. I've got an extra CustomWorks Agressor you can try.

My rig ready for the rug:

I have the 6mm Tamiya hexes on order, Jaco wheels are digging into the knuckles hard. I also chose to grind down the button head screws to mount the PRS gear but other then that the car went together like a dream. I really like the improved front bumper system and of course how easy it is to get to the diffs and the spur.

Well, don't fell too bad. By the time you can race touring cars on Saturdays, again, there should be plenty of parts avail. for your T2. About the oval car, I appreciate the offer but, isn't the oval racing class at Horsham really small? I recall someone, recently, saying that Horsham will probably do away it because of poor participation. Something about them losing money racing the class on Sundays.

OK. Electronics space is really limited in this car, has anyone considered moving the servo forward a bit in the chassis? There seems to be a bit of room to play with there. I know it will shift the weight of the car some... but it cant be THAT much to move it forward 1/4"... i dont see it being detrimental to handling.

If u relocate the antenna mount to the top deck or just forward of the servo it can create just enough room depending on the electronics. Check mine out.


Can anyone give me an Idea of what gear ratios I should start with for 116 64 p spur, rubber on asphalt.

Thanks
