I would say that track has similar conditions to what I normally race in during the summer, and if I were to run on that surface I would start at 7-5-7 but thats just me. Have you got your truggy yet?

Vancouver, Wa. not BC and the track is in Oregon. Check out the Rise RC raceway thread in the northwest forum, and in the summer it can be hot and dry.

Well I did the diffs last night and went with 7-10-5. I didn't put them in the truggy yet. I now may change them according to what a couple of you guys suggested. Maybe I'll try it and have other diffs set up with different diff fluid in them so I can swap them out at the track. Let the testing begin.

Yeh, thats what I do. I have 2 complete center diffs and 4 f-r diffs so changing is a piece of cake. I think diffs are something you have to figure out yourself.

All I had was 2k, so i put it in the rear diff and went out for the third qualifier and I INSTANTLY felt a difference. The truck was a lot easier to drive (for me) and I could jump on the power sooner at the exit of the corners without the rear end coming around on me at all. Granted, no 2 people will like the same setup, so this is just what I did for my driving style. Since I race at Hobby Hut with sriley that's why I reccomended that diff setup.

I disagree with Mark and agree with dragracechief, and that just shows once again how it is all about personal feeleng.

My experience with RC8T has taught me that this truck likes same fluids in front and rear diffs, such as a balanced setup. I like 7-5-7 and stantdard 7-7-7 but don't like light fluid in the rear.
Next i'm gonna try 5-7-5.............. Anyone tryed it????

your, track looks like the kind of surface the track i race at in outdoor season with dry and dusty and loose dirt i think 7,10,3 diff setup but than again its the way the driver likes the feel.

espially in the rear .
im no pro but i can tell what diffrent diff wt do though.

i dont have a rc8t yet just a eight-t 1.0 but i think it similar on most truggys.

i, did in my eight- t i tryed the same setup and 7k on the rear at least on a bumpy and dry track it was terrible it took my steering away and wouldnt rotate .

but when you exit corners 7k in the rear really makes the truggy square straighter better.

like i was saying i think it whould be simlar on most truggy maybe not quite the same.
