Questions?? Team Associated RC8T3.1 New Diffs

hey guys,

i recently purchased a rc8t 3.1 and have began assembling today. i just completed the diffs, however, they seem quite tight due to the o-rings that were included/instructed to use, is this normal? i can twist the diff, feels smooth, all seems fine only that the o-rings are definitely causing a pretty good bit of resistance and im just wondering whether or not that's normal. the kit came with 10 and 5 weight oils which i will be running 10,10,5 and both the front and rear 10(front) and 5(rear). there's no other way i could position the o-rings without bypassing the instruction booklet, which concerns me. everything is done step by step, maybe i've just been out of the hobby for so long that im over thinking things lol just thought it would be good idea to double check with someone who has experience.

thanks, dev

The orings are a tuning option, most ppl do not use them. They will tight the diff up for sure

Which o-rings are you referring to? The ones that go on the out drives, or the optional ones that can be installed behind the small gears on the cross shafts? If you are talking about the ones on the cross shafts, no one uses them. They will cause a bind.
