Dumb question, but wouldn't grease be thicker than 100k fluid?

just measuring by my uncalibrated hands no. It doesn't feel as tight with the grease as it did with the 100k. The truck has better drive with the grease in the rear(to me), but this was also on black carpet. Fortunately it's not to hard to pull the diff and try different things during a practice session. That's what I did when it was suggested to me to try the red and tacky.

Are we allowed to run BECs for the servo? I don't see any mention of them not being allowed in the rules.

I wanted to run a CC BEC 1.0 at 8.4v but not sure if that's acceptable.

Most likely not. Check with the track you are running.

The "McTruck" ran at Indy RC Raceway this past Friday night and won the A-main. It looks even better in person.

This was the first race night ever for the top 2 trucks and both were very close in performance. It has been a while since we have raced Euro Trucks at this track, but overall the night was a fun success. All the trucks racing did have a little bit of super glue on the outside edge of the front tires which does help reduce over-steering/traction rolling in this class.

Check out the results here...

I was running TCS rules to the letter, the chassis with the truck body is about as fast as you’d want to go on the smaller track. It was a bit tipsy…

These trucks look like so much fun! Every time I come out on these forums I find new stuff I want to build.

What are some rounded case lipos available that are legal for TCS Euro Truck Rules?
